Melania Trump dons a double-breasted coat with eye-catching gold clasp for Bush’s funeral
Melania Trump attended George H. W. Bush's funeral alongside her husband and looked absolutely stunning in her Proenza Schouler coat.
On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, the 48-year-old walked into the National Cathedral, in Washington, hand-in-hand with Donald Trump with a solemn look on her face.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the First Lady of the U.S. wore a double-breasted coat designed by Proenza Schouler, which featured a belt with a tiny shiny gold clasp.

Despite the cold weather that took over the American capital, Melania opted to keep her legs bare, but she still wore a nice pair of leather high heels.
Her gorgeous caramel locks cascaded down her shoulders and her jewelry collection must have stayed home because she only had a few platinum bands on her fingers.
But, although Melania looked quite elegant, the scene that followed was far from classy; as soon as the First Couple reached their seats in the front row of the cathedral, they were greeted by Barack and Michelle Obama, who were seated next to them.
The four exchanged pleasantries and shook each other's hands but it was clear that there was some tension in the air, not only because Trump and Barack have always been on different ends of the spectrum but also because Michelle recently talked about Trump in her book, "Becoming."
THE TRUMP-CLINTON FEUD
Next to the Obamas were Bill and Hillary Clinton, who didn't even turned their heads to acknowledge Trump and Melania's presence. Bill politely shook Melania's hand when she reached for him but Hillary seemed annoyed by the First Lady's wave.
The rest of the ceremony might have been quite awkward for the six public figures, but all eyes were on George W. Bush and his beautiful eulogy.
THE PAIN OF A GRIEVING SON
The former U.S. President paid tribute to his late father by saying that he was 'the best father a son or daughter can have' and proceeded to talk about his accolades.

During the speech, Bush couldn't help but break down but quickly recovered to say: "in our grief, let us smile knowing that Dad is hugging Robin and holding Mom’s hand again."
