First Lady Melania Trump wore a fitted Carolina blue dress at the White House on Monday where she and her husband, President Donald Trump, welcomed the Panamanian President, Juan Carlos Varela and his wife, Lorena Castillo Garcia de Varela.
The blue dress was designed by Michael Kors and retails for $1695. The knee-length frock showed off the First Lady’s slender figure. It featured a high neck and it was adorned with three buttons on the sides. The dress also comes in black, but is already nearly sold out in both colors. The only sizes that are currently available are 0, 8, and 10.
“A study in sophistication, the sheath dress is a wardrobe essential. This version is expertly tailored to flatter the figure in stretch bouclé-crepe. A crew neckline, accompanying belt and buttoned details complete this forever style with a flattering effect,” reads the description of the dress on the Michael Kors website.
Mrs. Trump paired the dress with a pair of floral Christian Louboutin pumps.
Mrs. Trump has been making fashion statements for years. However, now that she is directly in the public eye, her fashion choices find their way to the headlines more often. The baby blue coat dress that she wore at her husband’s inauguration, for example, was considered iconic and very reminiscent of Jacqueline Kennedy. This past weekend to and from a trip to Camp David, Melania Trump showed off a more casual side. She wore a Gabriela Hearst shirtdress on Friday and was spotted in olive colored skinny jeans with a white button-down top on Sunday.
Panama’s first lady Lorena Castillo arrived at the White House wearing a knee-length green dress that she paired with nude platform pumps. The two women posed for a photo together outside of the Oval Office.
According to CNBC, President Trump and President Juan Carlos Varela met to discuss organized crime, immigration, fighting drug trafficking, and other economic issues. The two were also expected to address “unrest in nearby Venezuela.”
“We face the same challenges in the region. So the idea for this visit is to work closely together. [I’m looking forward to] very closely with the President Trump administration for the future of the region,” Varela said.
