Melania Trump turns heads in a stylish black dress during an appearance with President Donald Trump at the White House Hanukkah reception.


The First Lady, Melania Trump is nothing short of a fashionista. During the White House Hanukkah reception, the former model had heads turning when she arrived in a demure black dress. In a caption for the event she said:

"Today we celebrated the miracle of #Hanukkah at the @WhiteHouse. Wishing everyone a blessed and happy holiday!"


For the reception, she opted for a conservative look, wearing a high collar, knee-length black dress. Adding a bit of flair to the look, it was designed with split sleeves on the front of the dress.

Melania kept her jewelry at a minimum. She accessorized with a black belt and matching high heels.

She wore her hair in loose curls, and switched it up from her signature middle parting, and her hair swept to the side. 

For her make-up, the first Lady accentuated her blue eyes with a smoky silver eye. She had on an understated dark blush and glossy lip.  


Melania and the President were joined by his daughter, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. They were gathered in the East Room to watch him sign an executive order on anti-semitism.

It was a proud moment for the family. Particularly for Ivanka, who grew up a member of the Presbyterian church, then converted to Judaism in 2009, when she married Jared.


During the Hanukkah reception in 2018, Melania went for a similar aesthetic and attended the event in an all-black ensemble. She complimented the look with patent leather Christian Louboutin heels.

For the evening event, she wore an off-the-shoulder cocktail dress by Scanlan Theodore. It is reported, following the reception the dress sold out.

The black dress she wore on Wednesday is a complete contrast to the colorful and festive outfits she has been wearing this month.

During her trip to England for the NATO 70-year reception, she wore a bright yellow cape. More recently, Melania wore a candy cane-stripped skirted during a visit to the Marine Toys for Tots in Washington, D.C.
