Birthday Girl Melania Trump’s Most Stylish Looks
Happy Birthday, Melania Trump! The First Lady turns 49 on Friday, April 26, and we’re celebrating by taking a look back at her most stylish moments since moving to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (a.k.a. the White House). Thanks to her former modeling career, Mrs. Trump can turn even the most casual outfit into a major fashion moment, and she has consistently wowed Us with her classic-with-a-twist style choices.
It became clear from the onset that the Slovene-born beauty was taking wardrobe cues from previous trendsetting first ladies. For the inauguration in January 2017, she wore a pale blue Ralph Lauren cashmere coat dress with matching suede pumps and gloves that called to mind Jackie Kennedy’s chic style, and she’s continued to rock high-fashion designs ever since. Though, much like former first lady Michelle Obama before her, Melania’s outfits keep Us guessing.
Whether she was hosting her first state dinner for French President Emmanuel and First Lady Brigitte Macron in a sparkling Chanel Haute Couture gown (which originally appeared on the brand’s spring 2018 runway as a jumpsuit) or sporting a pastel Burberry coat to read to children at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, the First Lady’s wardrobe creatively and tastefully embraces color, texture and design. Oh, and we will forever be amazed by her ability to have a rainbow-hued stiletto (Christian Louboutin is her fave) to match just about any outfit.
Here at Stylish, we’ve been keeping tabs on her most, well, stylish moments both at home and abroad, and, in honor of her 49th birthday, we’re revisiting our favorites. Keep scrolling to see her best looks!
