She’s known for her glamorous sense of style and Melania Trump pulled out all the stops this week as she stepped out for the White House Congressional Ball alongside her husband President Donald Trump.

The First Lady beamed as she made a stylish entrance into the grand foyer of the White House to greet a crowd of American Democrats and Republicans at the annual event.

Melania, who has been married to Donald since 2005, was dressed to impress in a stunning crystal-embellished cape-like silk gown from Lebanese fashion designer Reem Acra.

The 49-year-old, who is mum to 13-year-old Barron, let her dazzling dress do the talking, opting for minimal jewellery, including her wedding rings, and leaving her hair in soft waves, falling down over her shoulders.

The Presidential couple were joined at the event by Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, who stepped out in a low-cut black gown.

Melania’s stunning appearance comes a week after Camilla and Prince Charles welcomed the US President and the first lady into their home Clarence House for tea.

Melania opted for a daring outfit last Tuesday as she donned an eye-catching bright yellow Valentino coat for the palace event. The first lady appeared to be wearing the cape-style jacket over an equally vibrant fuchsia dress with matching stiletto heels in the same shade.

Also wrapping up against the cold, Donald Trump wore a smart navy suit for the momentous occasion with a bright blue tie and a matching navy overcoat, while Prince Charles stepped out in a pinstripe navy suit.

The duchess was striking in the cherry red dress which featured long sleeves and a dropped waist with a pleated skirt. Wearing one of her signature multi-strand pearl necklaces, Camilla completed her outfit with a sophisticated black cape jacket, opaque stockings and black court shoes.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge was also in attendance stepping out in a stunning emerald green frock which oozed sophistication thanks to its classic cut, long-sleeves and high neck. Catherine rounded off the elegant look with a pair of dazzling drop earrings.
