Melania, always one for custom-made high fashion frocks, wore a bespoke Hervé Pierre red, white and naval force blue semi-formal dress for the formal supper, combined with dark stilettos and consummately tousled hair.

The dress takes inspiration from the Americana and French flags but also is unusual in its bodice origami-like detailing, which resembles a basket of wheat.


Hervé Pierre, a French-American form fashioner, is the First Lady’s go-to designer for custom-made ensembles, alongside Stefano Gabbana from the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana.

Melania dazed the American and French individuals when she touched base in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, wearing a traditional red Christian Dior skirt-suit.




Melania’s suit paid reverence to the French mold house’s groundbreaking “New Look” style revolution in the late 1940’s, which misrepresented the bust and hips in what is currently known as the “Bar” suit.
