Wearing an Australian designer dress, Melania Trump welcome's the Australian Prime Minister and his wife for a goodwill weekend.
On Friday, the First Lady Melania Trump and President Donald Trump welcomed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife, Jenny Morrison, to the White House.
The Australian leaders have arrived for a goodwill weekend, aimed at strengthening America's relations with Australia. Welcoming her guests Melania writes:
"Welcome to the @whitehouse PM Morrison and Mrs. Morrison!"
Melania honored her guests by wearing an ice blue dress by Australian designer, Scanlan Theodore. The mid-length, pencil dress went just below her knees. Showing off her figure, the design was slim fitting, with puffed out sleeves.
She finished her look with snakeskin Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps. Manolo Bhlahnik's have been a regular feature in Melania's style. She has worn snakeskin print in various styles, from pastels colors, white and multi-colored. Recently, the First Lady wore snakeskin Manolo Bhlanik's at the reopening of the Washington Monument.
It is reported, Melania's stylist, Hervé Pierre often choices designer's that come from the same countries as her visiting or hosting dignitaries.
Last year, when she hosted the first state dinner for French President Emanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Trogneux-Macron, Melania wore French designer, Chanel. Sharing a picture from the night Pierre gushes:
"I just got the picture in the mail!!! How wonderful it was to be at the #whitehouse for the French State Dinner!! What an honor! Thank you to the amazing First Lady ... #Flotus #presidentmacron ##brigittemacron #hervepierre"
Recently, she also wore Chanel when she attended the 45th G7 summit in Biarritz, France. According to Express, the resort town of Biarritz has historical significance to Chanel founder, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel. Her love for the region inspired the designer to open her first atelier.
Arriving for a ceremony on the White House South Lawn, the Morrison's were greeted by almost 500 members of the United States Armed forces. The ceremony opened with a live band playing both the American and Australian national anthems.
President Trump and Prime Minister Morrison have engaged in bi-lateral meetings, toured an Australian owned factory in Ohio and they attended a state house dinner. This is the second state dinner the Trumps have hosted since taking office.
