President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night. It was a (very) lengthy speech in which he largely revisited his accomplishments over his first year in office and offered a handful of proposals he’d like to see considered in the coming year.
His wife, Melania Trump arrived at the event to a standing ovation wearing an all-white Dior pantsuit, worn over a chic silk Dolce & Gabbana shirt.
Melania Trump paired the outfit with some Christian Louboutin heels. It was clear she was channeling her husband’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton who famously wore all-white pantsuits on a number of occasions while she was fighting against Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race.
47-year-old first lady Melania Trump did not utter a word to the crowd gathered at the Capitol to hear her husband’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
This is also her first public appearance of the year, following reports that the first lady has been staying in a hotel rather than the White House after Trump’s alleged affair with a porn star resurfaced this month.
Melania is said to have also travelled in a separate car from her husband to the State of the Union address.
CNN reports that, breaking with tradition, Melania opted to travel with the guests she was seated with.
Over the weekend, porn star Alana Evans claimed Melania knows about her husband’s extra-marital affairs.
Adult actress Alana Evans suggested the President and First Lady have an “arrangement” but that it is “no one else’s business”.
Details of Trump’s alleged affair with another porn star, Stormy Daniels, resurfaced this month after it was claimed she was paid $130,000 (£95,000) hush money.
President Trump has repeatedly said that all of the more than a dozen women who’ve accused him of sexual misconduct or assault are liars.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the First Lady arrived the State of the Union address separately for “no reason other than she can greet the guests and he can go straight in.”
