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.
Melania Trump (born Melanija Knavs [mɛˈlaːnija ˈknaːu̯s], April 26, 1970; Germanized to Melania Knauss) is the First Lady of the United States, married to President Donald Trump. Trump is the first First Lady of the United States to be a naturalized citizen of the United States; she was born in Slovenia (then part of Yugoslavia), became a permanent resident of the United States in 2001, and obtained U.S. citizenship in 2006. Prior to marrying Donald Trump, she worked as a model; by 2016 she considered herself a “full-time mom”. Trump is the second foreign-born First Lady of the United States, following Louisa Adams, wife of John Quincy Adams. 
Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto in the southeast of Slovenia, which was then part of Yugoslavia, on April 26, 1970. She is a daughter of Amalija (née Ulčnik) and Viktor Knavs, who managed car and motorcycle dealerships for a state-owned vehicle manufacturer. Her father was from the nearby town of Radeče. Her mother came from the village of Raka, and was a patternmaker at the children’s clothing manufacturer “Jutranjka” in Sevnica. When later working as a model, she changed the Slovene form of her last name Knavs to the German Knauss.
She grew up in a modest apartment in a housing block in Sevnica, in Slovenia’s Lower Sava Valley. She has a sister and an elder half-brother, whom she reportedly has never met, from her father’s previous relationship.
When she was a teenager, the family moved to a two-story house in Sevnica, and as a high school student, she lived in a high-rise apartment in Ljubljana. Melanija attended the Secondary School of Design and Photography in Ljubljana, and studied at the University of Ljubljana for one year before dropping out. She declares speaking English, French, Italian, and German, in addition to Serbo-Croatian and her native Slovene.[22
The First Lady Fashionista
US First Lady Melania Trump’s wardrobe has been the centre of discussions ever since her husband, Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of USA. Be it her sky blue, double-faced cashmere jacket from Ralph Lauren or the more recent black, sequined suit by Michael Kors, she continues to set fashion goals.
On her 47th birthday today, we raise a toast to her sartorial choices. Our fashion frat, too, gives Melania’s style a thumbs up. “She is one of the most stunning First Ladies ever around the world. She has been wearing her clothes quite well. The way she dresses up reminds me of the powerful Robin Wright from the House of Cards. Melania’s style is pretty cool,” says designer Nikhil Mehra. On being asked how he would like to dress her up, Mehra says, “I’d make a bandhgala, but in a more feminine manner, with well-fitted, slim-cut trousers. The bandhgala would have interesting coin buttons. I might even put a slight drape just to layer it.”
TRUMP AND MELANIA AWARD PURPLE HEART TO WOUNDED VET SGT. ALVARO BARRIENTOS DURING FIRST VISIT AT WALTER REED HOSPITAL
President Donald Trump marked his first visit to a military hospital with wife Melania Trump in order to award a Purple Heart to an Army sergeant.
Trump said he was so moved by the story of Sergeant 1st Class Alvaro Barrientos, who was wounded in Afghanistan on March 17, that he wanted to do the honor himself.
Melania stood by her husband’s side at the visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, on Saturday.
Before pinning the award on Barrientos, Trump remarked: ‘When I heard about this and I wanted to do it myself.’
The occasion marked Trump’s first visit as president to the military hospital.
Barrientos, whose right leg below the knee had been amputated, was wheeled into a hospital atrium in a wheelchair, accompanied by his wife, Tammy.
He was injured when an Afghan soldier opened fire inside a base in the Helmand province and wounded three U.S. soldiers, reported Reuters.
The commander of the U.S. military kissed Barrientos’ wife before he bestowed the honorable award to the sergeant’s left shirt collar.
Barron Trump joined his parents on Monday at the Truman balcony for the White House Easter Egg Roll. The annual Easter Egg Roll is traditionally hosted by the first lady and dates back to the 1878. Some 21,000 people gathered at the White House for this year’s event.
Breitbart reported First Lady Melania and Barron will be moving into the White House this summer.

First Lady Melania Trump visits HomeSafe, a group home for domestic abuse victims in Lake Worth, Florida, located a few miles south of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach where President Trump is spending the Easter weekend with his family. Melania met with the girls only -ages 12 and 17 – for 45 minutes and gave each one a gift. But the First Lady gave Easter baskets and stuffed bunnies for the boys at other HomeSafe residences. HomeSafe serves a total of 40 boys and 7 girls at its residences.
This morning, First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to HomeSafe, and visited with the girls living in one of the five residential group homes run by the agency. Mrs. Trump brought gifts for each of the girls and spent time in the home visiting with all of them. In addition, she brought Easter Baskets and stuffed bunnies for other clients served by HomeSafe.
“We were thrilled to have the First Lady here and for our girls to spend time with her,” said Matthew Ladika, CEO of HomeSafe. “What a unique experience for them. This is something they will never forget.”
The First Lady spent about 45 minutes at the agency. The girls she visited with are victims of abuse, ages 12-17, who have been removed from their family and placed in HomeSafe’s residential program for treatment of the trauma they have suffered…”
