First Lady Melania Trump wore an off-the-runway gown to attend an annual gala celebrating President Abraham Lincoln at the Ford’s Theatre on Sunday evening.

To award Americans with the Lincoln Medal, Mrs. Trump wore an Escada gown from the German brand’s Resort 2018 collection. The gunmetal shimmer from the dress was reminiscent of Mrs. Trump’s stunning custom Chanel Haute Couture gown from the American-French State Dinner earlier this year.

Mrs. Trump paired the gown with pointed gunmetal stilettos and her signature wavy, sun-kissed tresses.

The gown Mrs. Trump wore on Sunday resembled the Chanel Couture gown she wore during the American-French state dinner, in April, which featured hand-beaded appliqués, hand-sewn sequins, and Swarovski crystals. The First Lady had the gown fitted and designed for her by Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld.
