First Lady Melania Trump returned to her home of Manhattan, New York City on Monday to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange, a long held tradition, in all black with iconic French buckle pumps.

Melania Trump greeted schoolchildren in a sleeveless black Prada dress featuring a matching belt and giant front flap pockets — a signature of the Italian brand.

Most notably, Mrs. Trump wore a pair of patent leather buckle pumps by Rogier Vivier, the French designer who famously slipped his stilettos on Catherine Deneuve for her role in Belle de Jour. The ensemble is a kind of modern spin on Deneuve’s mod wardrobe from the 1967 film.

Mrs. Trump originally wore these Roger Vivier heels with a black Christian Dior coat while visiting France on her European tour this summer, loyal Fashion Notes readers will recall.

The nearly four-inch pumps, with their metal buckles and square toes, retail for $775.
