Melania Trump put on an incredibly glamorous display as she joined her husband President Donald Trump in hosting a black-tie dinner at the White House.
The 47-year-old looked a world away from the incredibly casual figure she had cut earlier in the day when she visited hurricane-hit areas of Florida, when she opted to wear jeans, a baggy shirt and Converse sneakers, donning an Monique Lhuillier gown for the White House Historical Association dinner and reception.
Standing alongside her husband as he took to the stage to welcome guests to the decadent evening event, Melania was the picture of style in the sparkling silver design, which featured a simple slip-style floor length dress underneath a sheer chiffon-and-sequin overlay which fell all the way down to the floor.
The dress was cinched in at the waist with a black ribbon-style belt, helping to accentuate the First Lady’s fabulous figure.
Melania wore her long brunette locks in loose waves around her shoulders, while her make-up was kept very subtle – just a simple smokey eye, bronzed cheeks and a pink glossy lip.
Mother-of-one Melania looked absolutely thrilled to be at the event, and was pictured beaming with joy as her husband took to the stage to introduce her, before she took to the podium herself to address the guests.
It has been a busy day for the President and the First Lady, who traveled from the White House to Fort Myers, Florida, early on Thursday morning in order to meet with locals who have been impacted by the devastating effects of Hurricane Irma.
Melania took the chance to pay tribute to the bravery and resilience of the people she met while addressing guests at the dinner, praising the ‘unwavering commitment to overcome and rebuild’.
She noted that in both Florida and Texas she and her husband met ‘so many who lost so much’.
However the First Lady added that ‘the true spirit of this nation: an unwavering commitment to overcome, to rebuild, and to renew what was swept away’.
‘Together, we all hurt with these victims. And together we vow to lift our neighborhoods from the deepest of despair.’
Meanwhile her husband took his moment on stage as an opportunity to praise the White House as ‘a place that I’ve grown to love and respect’ – less than one month after the historical building underwent an intense two-week renovation.
The overhaul was completed not long after the President allegedly made a remark about the White House being a ‘dump’ to patrons at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, in July.
However, in August he denied that claim, saying on Twitter: ‘I love the White House, one of the most beautiful buildings (homes) I have ever seen. But Fake News said I called it a dump – TOTALLY UNTRUE.’
Trump was certainly full of praise for the White House on Thursday evening, describing the building as a ‘house like no other’ that conjures ‘beauty’, ‘warmth’, ‘power’ and sometimes ‘coldness’.
Like his wife, the President also touched on the hurricane recovery efforts in Florida, and says authorities there have done an ‘A-plus job’.
