FLOTUS stepped out in a pink floral number by Monique Lhuillier while attending a rally on Tuesday.

Melania Trump picked a floral Monique Lhuillier frock from the Los Angeles-based designer's 2017 resort collection while attending a rally Tuesday afternoon in Youngstown, Ohio. 

The first lady, styled by Herve Pierre, paired the high-neck sleeveless number with pastel suede pumps (a recurring favorite) and oversized rectangular sunglasses. 

FLOTUS has been partial to the fit-and-flare, shin-grazing silhouette as of late. During her quick jaunt to Paris with President Donald Trump earlier this month, Melania donned a red Dior skirt suit in the same retro-chic shape; the following day, she wore a red-white-and-blue look designed by Pierre himself, which again highlighted her toned arms and hit just below the knee. During the colder months, the first lady was a fan of coat dresses in the same fit-and-flare shape. 

In addition to Lhuillier, Melania has also worn several American designers while making the rounds at her husband's side, including Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren. However, she isn't afraid to throw some European designers in the mix while doing her duties domestically. For her White House portrait, Melania posed in a black Dolce & Gabbana jacket. Though some fans of the brand were angry at the association with the first lady, Stefano Gabbana faced the outrage on social media by replying that he "doesn't care" about lost consumers and fans.

Lhuillier, who showed for the first time in Paris earlier this month, took to social media to post an image of FLOTUS in the pink frock, but without any personal commentary — just some flower emoji.
