WEARING RED FOR THE RED CROSS EVENT

The First Lady, who is widely admired for her elegance and unerring fashion sense wore a dark blue, form-fitting jumper over slender red cigarette pants.

Melania Trump, 48, who usually wears high heels to every event, opted for flats in the form of red ballerina slippers that complemented her flattering outfit.

The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education throughout the United States.

SENDING US SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN CHRISTMAS CHEER

There are approximately 170,000 American men and women in the Military serving their country abroad, and it was for those citizens that Melania spoke at the American Red Cross. Every year the organization sends out care packages to deployed service members, providing a taste of home and a boost to morale.

AMERICAN RED CROSS AND THE US MILITARY

The American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education throughout the United States.

The American organization was founded in 1881 by Clara Barton after she worked with the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland in 1869, during the Franco-Prussian War. 

After their speeches, Melania Trump and Karen Pence helped volunteers assemble Comfort Packages which will be delivered to US servicemen and women for their Christmas celebration.

MELANIA TRUMP WEARS DOLCE & GABANNA AFTER RACIST CONTROVERSY

Melania Trump stepped out a Thanksgiving in an elegant creation by the Italian design team, Dolce & Gabanna. The First Lady's sartorial choice was seen as a gesture of support for the harried fashion brand which is under fire for racism and cultural stereotyping.

Dolce & Gabbana launched a series of ads in China promoting the brand that has landed them in hot water. 

In one of the ads, a Chinese model is seen attempting to eat Italian food with chopsticks and failing miserably, even as a Chinese language voiceover taunts her with suggestive innuendos, intentionally mispronouncing the non-Chinese words.

Since the release of the ads, Dolce & Gabbana have had to contend with backlash from critics, and widespread cancelation of events all over the world.

“Melania has always been a huge fan of Dolce & Gabbana, she absolutely loves their clothes and likes both designers Domenico [Dolce] and Stefano [Gabbana] personally.”

The First Lady, who was a fashion model, is a personal friend of the designers and an admirer of their work.
