Melania Trump wore a red Alexander McQueen dress paired with red Christian Louboutin ankle strap pumps to a campaign event in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday, February 18, 2017.
The event was held at the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport. The photo below shows her stepping off of Air Force One.
Here she is arriving at the event. More from Politico:
. . . . Air Force One rolled up here around a blazing sunset on a balmy afternoon, with thousands standing against barricades and “Proud to be an American” on the speakers.
Melania waved to the crowd of about 9000 people.
Melania opened the event by reciting a prayer.
Before introducing the President, the First Lady made a few remarks. Here is a portion of her statement:
It is my honor and great pleasure to stand here before you as the First Lady of the United States. The America we envision is one that works for all Americans, and where all Americans can work and succeed. A nation committed to a greater civility and unity between people from all sides of the political divide. I will always stay true to myself and be truthful to you, no matter what the opposition is saying about me. I will act in the best interest of all of you. I am committed to creating and supporting initiatives geared to my heart, which will have impacts on women and children all around the world.
During the rest of the event she sat on the sidelines and listened.
Melania’s Florida Campaign Style
Melania wore a red dress by Alexander McQueen. It is a fit-and-flare style with a pleated skirt and a couple rows of cut out dots along the hem.
The bodice has a figure-hugging silhoutte with cap sleeves and a high crew neckline. These is some ribbing detail at the waist. The dress is made of a stretch knit material.

More from WWD:
Her choice of an Alexander McQueen frock designed by the House’s Sarah Burton is a first for an official appearance. With New York Fashion Week officially wrapped up and London Fashion Week under way, the First Lady may be thinking of England along with other fashion watchers.
The McQueen Dress was last available at Net-a-Porter for $1,120 (originally $2,200). (One is currently available on ebay for $385) Thanks to Laura (@Japanese_Ginger on twitter) for her speedy ID of the dress.

I think #FLOTUS is wearing #Louboutin, not #gianvitorossi, based on pointed toe and thinner ankle strap. 📷:Getty #Melania #trump #MelaniaTrump #instastyle #instafashion #fashionblogger #fashion #fashionista #stylish #style #FirstLady #FLOTUS #firstladymelania #flotusmelania #whitehouse #ootd #whitehousewardrobe #womenwhowork #melbourne
These are similar to a pair for Gianvito Rossi, another of FLOTUS’s favorite brands.
