Melania Trump turns heads in an off-white sleeveless dress alongside her husband and son
Melania drew admiring looks upon their arrival as she got off the plane at Mar-a-Lago looking stunning in a white dress.
The entire Trump family will spend Thanksgiving at the 'Winter White House', Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida. Air Force One touched down in Palm Beach on Tuesday with President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, and their youngest son Barron Trump for the holidays.
First Lady Melania stepped off the plane looking gorgeous. She wore an off-white sleeveless dress with an eyelet trim along the bottom that went down to her knees and a pair of mint green pumps.
The presidential family got welcomed by a crowd of around 250 people after arriving around 6 pm. President Trump then spent several minutes talking to the crowd and shaking hands before going to the residence.

Ivanka Trump, Tiffany Trump, Eric, and Lara Trump will soon join the rest of the Trump family at Mar-a-Lago for Thanksgiving. Dubbed by President Trump as the Winter White House, critics questioned his choice of presidential retreat.
Mar-a-Lago is not only a National Historic Landmark but also an exclusive members-only club that consists of guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities. According to critics the country club would create a conflict of interest, as the former White House ethics lawyer, Norman Eisen elaborated:
"It's a place where, for sky-high admissions fees, business executives who have strong interests before the government can engage in purchasing access to the president. Those fees also seem to be down payments on ambassadorships.”

When pointing to ambassadorships, Norman Eisen referred to Lana Marks, a Palm Beach handbag designer and Mar-a-Lago member. She allegedly got appointed as a U.S. ambassador to South Africa and is referenced as a clear example of Trump selling positions to the highest bidder.
As Donald and Melania Trump went through the holiday the rituals, body language expert Judi James shared her thoughts on the couple when they received the Christmas tree.
Judi suggested that President Trump took a ‘business-like’ approach and said:
“Trump's 'hailing' wave here is businesslike rather than seasonal, with the hand raised high suggesting power while the flattened palm forms a 'stop' gesture that seems to be holding back all the critics and fake news peddlers rather than inviting them to join him in a Christmas greeting ritual.”
The body expert noted that although the couple attempted to come across more festive and family orientated, their demeanor toward each other showed President Trump taking the lead while Melania stayed in the background.
“Christmas is traditionally the time when US presidents and their wives step out of any of the presidential posturing that might have gone on during the year to pose in a more even-handed family way. But not Donald Trump. His red tie and Melania's red tartan cape signal a desire to appear warm, relaxed and festive here but it's clear Trump has no intention of giving ground on his attention-grabbing role as world leader.”
The @WhiteHouse is getting ready for the Christmas season! Thank you to the Smith Family & the National Christmas Tree Association for providing this year's tree. And to our @NatlParkService for their hard work in trimming the tree for the Blue Room. pic.twitter.com/jiyYBwCeXO— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) November 19, 2018
According to Judi, President Trump is more focused on the crowd even though they do share moments of affection and touch, but it appears that Melania is keener to create proximity than husband Donald.
