Melania Trump opted for a Greek fashion designer at Friday’s congressional picnic at the White House.
The First Lady chose an ivory stretch crepe dress with a colorful graphic check designed by Mary Katrantzou, who was born in Athens, Greece, but is currently based in London. The sleeveless silhouette retails for $1,496, but it’s on sale right now for $897 at matchesfashion.com.
Melania typically favors monochromatic looks (save for that $51K 3D floral jacket by Dolce & Gabbana), from that fitted, sky blue Michael Kors dress she wore to meet Panamanian president Juan Carlos Varela and his wife, Lorena Castillo de Varela, on Monday to an all-black Stella McCartney jumpsuit paired with an oversize gold belt during her Saudi Arabia trip.
Unlike her one-hue-only ensembles, FLOTUS added a pop of pattern with her latest look. Interestingly, she chose to wear a hint of rainbow on the same weekend as the New York City Pride Parade, which takes place Sunday. (The rainbow has long been a symbol of gay pride.)
Could the FLOTUS be using her wardrobe to silently protest against her husband’s anti-gay agenda? She has yet to tweet (or voice) any support for the LGBT community, but perhaps she took a cue from step-daughter Ivanka’s tweet about LGBT Pride Month.
