Melania Trump attends the United Nations General Assembly, with the President Donald Trump. The First Lady looked sophisticated wearing a Gucci coat dress.
Melania Trump entered the United Nations headquarters in New York, with President Donald Trump, escorted by their security team. The couple looked ready for business. In a tweet she simply captions their arrival:
"@POTUS & @FLOTUS #UNGA19"
Appearing ahead of President Trump, Melania looked sophisticated and confident walking up the United Nations headquarter's escalator.
For the event, she opted to wear a cream, button up coat dress, by Italian designer, Gucci. The matching belt screams high fashion, as the Gucci logo is boldly displayed on her belt buckle. According to Express, the First Lady's Gucci coat retails for over $2000 dollars.
Wearing understated make-up, and no jewelry, except for her giant wedding ring. Melania completed her look with grey and white pointed-toe heels.
Melania's decision to wear the coat dress might have been inspired by some of the fall trends at this year's "Fashion Week." According to Ruth Basloe, the creative director for the luxury department stores, Nordstrom, longline coats have made it on the Elle Magazine top fashion trends for 2019, she explains:
"A coat with some kind of drama is a must-have for fall."
Last year, at the United Nations General Assembly's 73rd session, Melania also wore a coat dress, it was short sleeved. At the time, she made a bold statement by wearing black. It was suspected that she wore black in solidarity of many women around the world, who were wearing black in support of the #TimesUp movement.
Earlier in the day, Melania had been on Wall Street, where she had the honor of taking part in the tradition of ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. She was joined by children from the United Nations International School.
The event was surrounded by controversy because many of the parents, whose children attend the school did not want to give permission for their children to attend the event, with Melania.
Many parents at the United Nations International School argued that a photo op with the First Lady, would make their children appear as though they are endorsing the Trump administration.
