MELANIA TRUMP WEARS MILITARY-INSPIRED JACKET AS THE FIRST COUPLE GREET ARGENTINA’S PRESIDENT AND HIS FASHIONISTA FIRST LADY JULIANA AWADA AT THE WHITE HOUSE
( Daily Mail ) First Lady Melania Trump may be known for choosing simple yet elegant designer frocks, but on Thursday she opted for a more daring olive green ensemble for her latest meet and greet at the White House.
The 47-year-old wife of President Donald Trump donned a military-inspired jacket and matching skirt from the Altuzarra Spring 2017 runway collection as she and her husband met with Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his wife Juliana Awada in Washington, D.C.
The designer’s ‘Feday’ gabardine military jacket with python-print piping costs a whopping $2,995, while the matching skirt featuring asymmetrical buttons added another $1,120 to the price of the $4,115 ensemble.
According to Net-a-Porter, the python piping on the khaki green ensemble was actually inspired by a jacket worn by actor Nicholas Cage in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart.
Melania accessorized her edgy out fit with a pair of python Manolo Blahnik BB pumps – which retail for around $595 per pair – to match the piping on her jacket and skirt.
Although she switched up of her style for her latest meeting, she struck to her trademark hairstyle, wearing her caramel-colored hair in loose waves around her shoulders.
Meanwhile, the First Lady of Argentina stunned in a fire-engine red pencil dress featuring a peplum design at her hips.
Juliana, 43, opted for a monochromatic look, wearing a red patent leather clutch and red suede and patent leather pumps by Aquazzura, which retail for $695.
Awkwardly, Aquazzura is currently in the midst of a legal battle with Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, as the high-end brand accused her of ripping off its designs for her eponymous fashion label.
