It is not exactly a secret that departing First Lady Melania Trump has expensive taste and an exquisite fashion sense.
Today, as Joe Biden is put into the position of United States President, Melania and Donald Trump say goodbye to the White House. Trump took the presidential office in 2016 before losing his reelection bid to Biden. Trump was somber but hopeful for the country’s future as he vacates the presidency and goes back to being a private citizen.
As it has been for most Trump’s tenure, Melania’s outfit was one of the biggest news grabbers of the day. The outgoing First Lady wore black from head to toe. Her outfit is on full display in the following social media video:
Melania Trump Bids Farewell to the White House in Style
As you might expect, Melania Trump’s all black, farewell outfit was not cheap. She wore a Chanel jacket, a Dolce and Gabbana dress and heels by Christian Louboutin.
Some social media users point out the fact that the first lady was not wearing a shred of clothing from American designers. Her outfit likely costs more than most Americans make in a year’s salary, but it was her handbag that stole the show. The purse, a crocodile Birkin bag from Hermès, is worth around $50,000. One thing noticeably missing from her and her husband’s attire was a COVID-19 protective face mask.
Like her husband, Melania also bid farewell to the White House and thanked the American people in a statement. The couple held their closing remarks at Joint Base Andrews before loading on to Marine One and departing for their Florida home. The couple’s only son together, Baron Trump, did not appear to be present during the departure.
“Being your first lady was my greatest honor — thank you for your love and support,” she says. “You will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, God bless your families and God bless this beautiful nation.”
The Trumps are breaking a long held traditions by not attending Biden inauguration and swearing-in ceremony.
