President Trump became the first sitting U.S President to visit the Western Wall, accompanied by the first family First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump.
The Western Hall hosted the president’s family with a historic trip on Monday. On arrival at the wall, First Lady Melania Trump and their first daughter Ivanka Trump located the women’s section of the wall.
Talking about the appearance of the ladies, FLOTUS was seen in Micheal Kors Collection Suit while pairing the belted white jacket and slimming skirt with red and white Manolo Blahnik zebra-printed stilettos. The planned 28-hour stay included in the visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
The First Lady and the President were greeted earlier in the morning by Isreali Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at the Ben Gurion Airport. While chatting, Sara Netanyahu was reported to tell the First Lady “You know, in Isreal all the people like us. The media hate us but the people love us”, sourcing from The Times of Isreal. The discussion was expected to continue on Monday night at ta private dinner with the Netanyahus.
This Western Wall visit marked the first U.S President sitting trip, which happened to also be the first couple’s first official trip overseas.
Numbering the start of a Palm Beach weekend with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, on Election Day, and at President Trump’s address at the joint session of Congress in February was one of the few key occassions where the First Lady wore Micheal Kors. The designer pointed to The New York Times earlier this year that she is known to be “a long time client at our New York boutique”.
FLOTUS has also been seen in another designer while in Saudi Arabia Sunday. A khaki Ralph Lauren shirtdress with a yves Saint Laurent wide brown leather belt, Manolo Blahnik heels and a few gold bracelets on a trip to the American International School in Riyadh Sunday with Saudi Education Minister Admed Al-Issa. Ralph Lauren also created the powder blue suit she wore at her husband’s swearing-in ceremony in January.
The president was hashing out security and trade issues with leaders from six Gulf nations before having lunch with leaders from more than 50 Muslim countries, while FLOTUS met with the schoolchildren. During the first couple’s two-day stay in Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that she opted not to wear a head covering, the local media signaled some approval for her conservative attire. Leaving Andrews Air Force Base in a white Max Mara sweater, an Herve Pierre high-waisted tangering-colored leather skirt with heavy ivory top stitching and Manolo Blahnik shoes, the first lady arrived saudi Arabia wearing a black pantsuit with a wide gold-colored belt. Of course, this well-covered modest look was featured on political observers who compared it to an abaya.
