First Lady Melania Trump looked as though she stepped off the Italian runway while strutting down Downing Street for a reception with Queen Elizabeth II.
For her first evening in London, England since last summer, Mrs. Trump went big and bold in a voluminous off-the-runway yellow Compact Drap cape by Valentino. The $3,850 cape, from the Fall 2019 Collection, is a microcosm of creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s codes for Valentino — striking colors, volume galore, and a childlike innocence.
Mrs. Trump wore the Valentino piece over a custom knit dress by her personal couturier Hervé Pierre in a purple-pink shade which matched her suede Christian Louboutin stilettos.
Thus far on this trip, Mrs. Trump has opted for color-blocked bright shades and outerwear as eveningwear. To land in London yesterday, for example, Mrs. Trump chose a primary red Calvin Klein coat and sleek leather Louboutin stilettos.
