Melania Trump's 2018 Congressional Ball Gown Came Straight From the Runway

Not my style. Oh well.




Melania Trump's 2018 Congressional Ball Gown Came Straight From the Runway

.................................

FLOTUS has worn many looks straight off the runway during her time in the White House. The long-sleeve white gown is a reflection of Philo's ten-year tenure at Céline: Formal and polished, but streamlined and unfussy




Philo's legacy lives on in fan accounts such as @oldceline—and, apparently, in FLOTUS' closet. (Trump previously wore a Céline shirtdress in October, to arrive in Ghana, during her four-country tour of Africa this fall.)

According to the Daily Mail, the First Lady made a short set of remarks to start the Congressional Ball. "Welcome to the White House. Enjoy the evening. Merry Christmas and happy and healthy new year," she said...........................


Trump's stylist, Hervé Pierre, has yet to provide a comment about the decision to dress FLOTUS in Céline for the Congressional Ball. In the past, he has said that Trump's fashion choices are part of building her legacy as First Lady: "What interests me in this relationship is not just finding pretty clothes—a lot of people can do that," he said to the New York Times. "It’s more about the legacy of this woman. Everybody has a different reaction to what she’s wearing."

2. Finally a pretty dress.

Most of her choices miss the mark. They usually are a bit strange and somehow "off". Looks better on her than on the runway model who wore it with gym shoes. Ugh!

16. On the runway model it looks like a sweater where the knitter couldn't figure out where to stop...

22. It is too tight. Looks sausage-like.

White is not really her color. To each his own.

30. Somebody dresses her funny, the dress is tacky and tight. It wrinkled when she

walked down the stairs.

8. She probably diets and works out while her fat hubby

shoves buckets of chicken into his foul mouth. And he probably didn't get her a Christmas gift...he "thinks" he got her a card on her birthday and spelled her name "Melanie". True love!

She can afford that.

13. Her face is certainly colorful.

The dress is too tight and shows her lumps - all of them. Elegance eludes her.

14. She could wear a sack as far as I'm concerned.

Not one thing beautiful about her.

15. Sort of ho-hum, IMO.

Not fugly, but nothing special.

It looks especially hideous at the link. The model is wearing it with black athletic shoes that have lavender soles.

Agreed. It looks like it was run over by a 747.

18. Pretty

but not to my taste. I like dresses that have fuller skirts that aren't so tight and form fitting.

19. Meh!

Not a total dud, but it is not very flattering on her. It's not a dress for a curvy woman. It would only look good on an anorexic 6 foot model.

24. Nicest thing she wore was the blue coat on Inauguration Day

I think that is the same designer who designed Nancy Pelosi’s red coat. Nice style for 2 different people

25. Whether she is clad in a Paris original, or jeans and a t-shirt, one fact remains

Melanie is a deplorable person, just like her husband. Fancy clothes won't change that.

The left one is considerably lower than the right.

27. Is it from the "Frozen" collection?

I didn't realize that the Ice Queen look was in this year. It's definitely too tight, but her clothes usually are.

31. Shallow Birther Barbie has already

"built her legacy" as a Gaslighting Bully Enabling Troll.

No amount of makeup, wigs, and dresses is going to change that.
