First Lady Melania Trump stole the show on the second evening of the Republican National Convention (RNC) in the Rose Garden, speaking about her passions in public life, wearing a sharp ensemble that has become a go-to aesthetic in her wardrobe.
Melania Trump delivered the speech in full Alexander McQueen with metallic brown Christian Louboutin stilettos.
The look’s jutting shoulders, cinched leather-belted waist, notched lapel, and olive khaki cotton is a familiar tone for Mrs. Trump who has often chosen uniform and military-inspired fashions over the last three and half years.
This particular ensemble is reminiscent of a Joseph Altuzarra skirt suit in a similar shade of olive that Mrs. Trump wore in 2017 while meeting Argentina’s leader at the White House.
Mrs. Trump’s McQueen military jacket features front button fastening, front flap pockets, a fitted waist, pleated details, and button cuffs. The jacket retails for about $1,470. Likewise, the high-waisted midi skirt has a similar pleated detail at the back hem. The skirt retails for $534.
The most cutting edge element of Mrs. Trump’s McQueen look — a true fashion gasp — is the black calf leather double-buckle waist belt that features gold hardware, two buckle fastenings, and two metal rings. The belt retails for about $990.
Mrs. Trump’s suit is not a departure from her time in the White House thus far. It is, if anything, a buckling down of the style she has crafted with her friend and personal couturier Hervé Pierre.
