Melania in Ice Blue

Love this coat on Melania. Getty Images North America.

While looking for more detailed photos of Melania in her beautiful green leopard Brandon Maxwell dress, I came across this set of her during a recent White House visit made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara. I feel like it was established right from the Inauguration that Ice Blue is one of Mel’s colors! So of course she looks very elegant in this belted coat. I don’t know who makes it but it is gorgeous and suits her well.

What stopped me in my tracks, however, was the height of her shoes. They must be at least 4-½ inches tall and I’m guessing they are by Christian Louboutin but I can’t quite tell if I am seeing the trademark red Louboutin sole or not. If they are Loubs, I know those can go as high as 120mm (or maybe even higher?), which roughly translates to 4.72 inches, ouchy ouch ouch. I admire Mel’s high heel walking skills (I would love to take a class from her on the subject), but I have to wonder if these are actually shoes she wore because she knew she wouldn’t be walking much. High heels to sit in! Now this I could do with no problem. I love the metallic sheen to them The color seems like something from the 60s, but the heel height is definitely today!

Let me know what you think of this look on Melania and if nearly 5-inch heels would present a problem for you like they would for me (unless we are all seated, of course).

Personally i love her style- i know people get a bit emotional bc of her husband but if you just saw her - her outfits are fabulous and her stylist is earning his keep - forget his name??

Patricia said...

I think she is a beautiful woman and dresses impeccably. I do truly wish the media would stop tearing her apart - she is not her husband and should not be judged !

Her complexion and hair allow every color to work well. Love the Arctic Blues, Dior Red, and Winter White which nobody else can match. Every coat in lovely color, perfect fit and ALWAYS belted. Now every gal wants to wear 5 inch Hurricane Loubs...Melania walks into a CAT-5 like she owns the joint.
Long may she reign

Melania looks absolutely wonderful love her outfits!!

Rosie said...

I bet the designers who choose not to style Melania are sorry now. She has become a fashion icon despite all her haters.

Artic Blue is a difficult color to wear for most, but Melania just rocks its.

Her shoes are beautiful but look painful to wear. 5 inch stiletto heels for me would be an accident waiting to happen, even when I was young.

Hi Naomi, I am in total agreement with you. I am separating her from Trump more and more--and feel that she will be separating herself from him more and more as well lol. The stylist is Herve Pierre and he is doing an amazing job! xx

Jill said...

Hi Patricia, I agree! I don't think she wanted to be First Lady but I think she is doing her best to represent herself and the country in a positive way and it's hard to find fault with that. I noticed how happy she looked last week during some sort of women's conference, an event she attended without Trump. I hope she will keep up with that kind of work! xx

Oh GSL you do have a way with words. Hurricane Loubs ha ha ha! I had forgotten about that look, it was a good one. I think her stylist is buying off the rack and they are having the clothes altered to fit her perfectly. xx

Jill said...

Hi Eleni, I found a few pictures of Melania that I had not seen before so have planned more posts on her outfits. Swing back by if you get a chance! xx

Hi Rosie! Yes she can pull off ice blue no problem, right? Based on things I am reading, I am wondering if a shift in thinking towards Melania is happening in the fashion world. It makes me laugh that Dolce & Gabbana have been fans of hers from Day One and have no problem singing her praises to the media! Lagerfeld has also said positive things about her right from the beginning. Smart men, all three! As for the shoes, the shoes! They do look painful but she wears them so very well...xx
