Sitting behind a glass bulletproof screen, Melania could be seen wearing an all-black ensemble. She was styled in a knee length black coat, with large buttons.

The coat was military inspired, with a large collar and square pockets on the front. The detailed gold buttons ran across the front of her coat and along its sleeves.


She accessorized her look with a pair of square sunglasses, and black leather gloves. Going for her go to heal, she wore a pair of black BB Pump heels, with the retail price starting at $625 at Nordstrom.

"Every season I explore and aim to achieve the perfect shape and cut for my court shoe. I first designed the 'BB,'" designer Manolo Blahnik says about his shoe.


For the Veteran's Day parade Melania opted for a black 4-inch heels. Revealing the inspiration behind the shoe, Blahnik says the design was inspired by a French Actress and sex symbol, he explains:

"[BB], which is named after Brigitte Bardot, one of my greatest inspirations, in 2008 and it became a classic. It's a good shoe for every occasion."


Adding a bit of color to her look, she kept her make-up simple with a smokey eye and bright pink lip. Despite having a million-dollar jewellery collection she was seen sitting on stage without any jewellery.
