Indonesia Tatler - - March -

A style re­view from 2017 of Amer­ica’s First Lady Me­la­nia Trump to an­tic­i­pate this year’s looks

from vi­brant flo­ral dresses to chic pantsuits, Me­la­nia Trump is one fash­ion chameleon who cer­tainly knows how to dress for ev­ery oc­ca­sion. Ever since her hus­band Don­ald Trump ran for of­fice, the world has been watch­ing their ev­ery move. Pres­i­dent Trump’s po­lit­i­cal moves have been scru­ti­nised just as much as the First Lady’s style has been com­mended upon. With head held high, Me­la­nia re­mains un­fazed by the me­dia as she car­ries on her du­ties as First Lady and at­tends ev­ery oc­ca­sion with ad­mirable en­sem­bles.

The year 2017 marked a new era for not only Me­la­nia’s life as First Lady, but also her fash­ion reper­toire. The woman who once reached for sheer fab­rics has now found com­fort in more de­mure sil­hou­ettes. With trained eyes and a sharp sense of style, Me­la­nia never fails to astound the world with her en­sem­bles. Only few can walk the fine line be­tween classy and sexy, and the First Lady is one of them.

Much like past first ladies, Me­la­nia of­ten opts for sleek tai­lored out­fits that scream power and el­e­gance for state vis­its, of­ten re­ly­ing on the works of Chris­tian Dior and Delpozo. The First Lady al­ways in­cor­po­rates lo­cal flair into her looks while adding twists of

her own. Dur­ing her trip to China, she chose to shorten her red Valentino dress to bet­ter com­ple­ment her stat­uesque fig­ure. Although it might have been seen as a bold move, she still trimmed the dress to a re­spectable length.

Known for their bright, re­gal looks, Dolce & Gab­bana has also been known to dress the First Lady for less-for­mal af­fairs and even pegged her as a #Dg­woman on so­cial me­dia. It might be easy to deem the First Lady as some­one who would only wear long-es­tab­lished fash­ion houses, but one should not over­look her ef­forts to in­cor­po­rate con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers such as The Row and Acne Stu­dios into her ever-chang­ing looks. Nev­er­the­less, when it comes to the per­fect pair of pumps, Me­la­nia almost al­ways turns to Chris­tian Louboutin and Manolo Blah­nik.

Now that the new year has fi­nally be­gun, an­tic­i­pa­tion runs high as Don­ald Trump plans his next move. Yet at the same time, the world can’t help but won­der what the First Lady will do and whom she will wear this up­com­ing year. As for last year’s style, here are a few of the best out­fits she wore dur­ing vis­its to coun­tries around the world.
