Melania Trump was the cynosure of all eyes as she made a stunning appearance at the White House Congressional Ball, wearing a white floor-length gown. 


Melania never gets old with her fashion. The First Lady showed just why she is revered as a trendsetter in style with her look at the White House Congressional Ball.

Melania stepped out in a $4000 crystal-embellished silk-crepe gown made by Reem Acra, a Lebanese designer. The floor-length gown is perfect for weddings and receptions, as it features a chiffon lining which provided adequate coverage. 

The First Lady was flanked by her husband, President Donald Trump, who, in his speech, praised Melania for her flair for interior decorations, which was visible all over the White House.

Melania, who again appeared in White for the White House Ball, having worn white last year, also tweeted about the occasion. Sharing some pictures from the Ball, she said:

"A beautiful evening at the @WhiteHouse. #CongressionalBall."

In the speech President Donald Trump made at the Ball, he began by thanking everyone, and he also noted that this had been a fascinating month in the nation's capital, adding that there haven't been many like it. 

The President further thanked everyone present at the Ball, including the Vice President and his wife, Karen. In Donald Trump's closing remarks, he promised that America would have the best year in it's had in many decades and that it was "set up for a great, big, beautiful success."


While 2020 according to President Trump, promises to be a good year, 2019 served as a year in which his wife, Melania, served up some grand fashion statements. 

This year saw the First Lady experiment with vibrant colors, while she also set new trends in some of her outings and engagements.

Melania looked gorgeous in any dress she stepped out in, be it the Orange floral dress she wore for the state banquet hosted by Queen Elizabeth, or the red Givenchy gown she wore during her visit to the UK. 

The First Lady was at her fashion best in 2019 and 2020 promises to be better.
