Melania Trump's $2,225 Dress Was Perfectly on Theme for the Congressional Picnic

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump held their first congressional picnic at the White House on Thursday evening, hosted on the South Lawn of the property. The grounds underwent a New York City transformation as they were decorated to resemble Central Park. Guests dressed accordingly for the outdoor setting, in light summer dresses and pastel polos — but nobody’s look was more on point than Melania’s.

Wearing a $2,225 Mary Katrantzou grid-print dress, FLOTUS was outfitted perfectly for the occasion. The classic fit-and-flare was paired with a neutral brown waist belt and pink suede heels, which brought the standout color palette to life.

The classic silhouette is not unusual for the 47-year-old; however, the integration of mixed colors into her wardrobe is certainly a welcome departure from her typical monochromatic looks. The first lady has seemingly made a habit of wearing a limited color palette, whether it be the khaki dress she wore during her visit in Saudi Arabia or the gleaming gown she wore at this year’s Ford’s Theatre Annual Gala.

But as can be expected from the former model, she’s proving that she looks good in just about anything.
