Melania Trump wore a pleated cape, sleeveless boat neck gown in a neon green off-the-runway Valentino frock from the Spring 2020 ready-to-wear collection. This is the first time that Mrs. Trump has worn this shade as First Lady. The dress retails for $5,500.

Mrs. Trump paired the gown with a deep red thin leather belt and matching Manolo Blahnik stilettos.

The dress has a 1980s quality, an era that Mrs. Trump has rarely channeled, instead opting for the period of the 1970s with suede coats, A-line skirts, and large collars.
