Melania Trump & French First Lady Soar in Heels for Tree Planting Ahead of State Dinner

With dirt flying and shovels hitting the White House South Lawn today, first ladies Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron were in good company as they stepped aside and let their men do the hard work — it was not an occasion for breaking a sweat in high heels.

President Donald Trump and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron participated in a tree planting ceremony today as part of an official state visit and dinner celebrating 250 years of U.S.-French relations.

Joining the leaders were their stylish wives, who stood behind them in outfits best saved for other activities. Melania looked elegant in a little black dress teamed with a matching tuxedo cape. The skirt hem cut around the mid-thigh area, showing plenty of leg in a pair of Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps. The shoes feature a pointy profile, and a low-cut topline and vamp on a 4.7-inch stiletto heel.

Meanwhile Brigitte had on a cream-colored coat over a matching dress and a pair of Louis Vuitton pumps. The French fashion house’s Eyeliner pumps feature a gold accessory, and a patent leather upper on a straight 4-inch stiletto heel. The shoes retail for $815.

“After months of preparations, President @realdonaldtrump and I are looking forward to hosting our first State Dinner with France! Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to make this visit a success,” she shared on Instagram earlier in the day.

The group took a helicopter ride tour of the city and will have dinner together.

Yesterday Melania shared a behind the scenes video with my team “checking on the final details of our first State Dinner with France.”
