Let’s start this post off with a photo with great rhythm.
Secondly, to all the people who claim that Melania is trolling the media by wearing stilettos on the plane to her second trip to Houston, she’s not. She wears stilettos quite often, actually. Continuing to wear them in the face of media outrage is just business as usual.
This is a total aside, but I swear her superpower is walking on grass in stiletto heels. She does it so gracefully and never gets stuck — because I’m sure if she did, the photos would be all over the internet in seconds.
That said, it’s a great khaki dress she’s wearing on this trip. I really like how military-inspired pieces look on her. Harder-edged clothes play well off her no-nonsense personality, maybe, in ways that softly elegant clothes don’t.
Exhibit B for this observation, Melania dressing in work clothes for an event at which she’s going to — gasp — do work. Chambray shirt, olive khaki pants, Chuck Taylors. Maybe it’s the double-pocket detail on the blouse that works so well on her, but I really like both the khaki dress outfit and the chambray shirt outfit.
On other occasions, like going to church, she dresses perfectly for the venue, all modest in pastel pinks and blues and floral shoes. The outfit is fine, but doesn’t inspire rapturous declarations of love and adoration.
Although I do love it when they dress all matchy.
