Even down in the mud, First Lady Melania Trump brought the glamour as she joined children from the Boys and Girls Club Friday to harvest vegetables at the White House garden wearing a red flannel ensemble that featured dyed-to-match red gloves.

Melania went for gardening chic as she wore a red, button-detailed tartan cotton shirt from Balmain with the French brand’s flashy, signature gold hardware trimming down the center of the top and cuffs. The shirt retails at Net-A-Porter for $1,380.

“Inspired by David Bowie, George Michael and Prince, Balmain’s Pre-Fall ’17 collection has a rebellious ’80s attitude,” the description of the shirt states. “This tartan shirt is detailed with the label’s iconic lion-embossed buttons and is cut for a comfortable loose fit. Continue the laid-back feel with distressed denim.”

The Slovenian-born former model paired the look with matching red gardening gloves and square turtle-shell sunglasses, as well as casual navy blue skinny pants – cropped at the ankle, a favorite style of the First Lady’s – and blue, lace-up sneakers.

The gardening chic ensemble was a departure from Melania’s bold, monochromatic magenta look in New York City, New York earlier this week, where the First Lady gave a speech at the United Nations. In that appearance, Melania wore a pink Delpozo coat with matching Christian Louboutin stilettos, as Breitbart News reported.
