First Lady Melania Trump Shops in Her Closet for G7 Arrival Look, But Wears Gucci for Dinner with the Macrons

SUNNY SIDE UP: In light of the increasingly fractured and troubled state of geopolitics, key world leaders have countless conundrums to deal with at the G7 Summit in Biarritz. Trade, climate change, Middle East tensions, Iran’s seizure of foreign ships and wariness of a worldwide recession based on warning signs in Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are among the many points of concern. While the powers that will be locked in meetings for much of the weekend, their respective better halves understand how their secondary roles can potentially offer some much needed levity. Perhaps that’s the reason that First Lady Melania Trump exited Air Force One upon arriving in France, wearing a bright yellow and white Calvin Klein dress Saturday. The sleeveless style was a throwback look that had been designed by Raf Simons. Management at Calvin Klein’s parent company PVH parted ways with him at the end of last year but FLOTUS remains a fan. (Simons is back in his native Belgium designing his own collection and he collaborated with the outerwear label Templa.) Trump has worn his designs for Calvin Klein for other occasions such as an outing during last summer’s NATO’s Summit. The First Lady also took something from

First Lady Melania Trump Again Dons Dior

After commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Portsmouth on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania made their way to France for today’s ceremony marking the Normandy landings. Joining French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte, the President and First Lady paid tribute to service members from both countries who battled against Nazi soldiers in World War II. After the commemorative ceremony, including speeches by both of the presidents, and a viewing at the Normandy American Cemetery, there was a military fly-over at Omaha Beach. POTUS was then off to Calvados for a working lunch and bilateral meeting with Macron.
Given the pageantry that has been integral to the Trumps’ European trip, it is not surprising that FLOTUS suited up in primarily refined looks in subtle colors. For the second time this week, she chose Dior – in this case a black coat dress worn with Roger Vivier shoes with signature buckles for today’s tribute. FLOTUS is such as fan of Dior’s artistic director for women’s Maria Grazia Chiuri that she also wore custom Dior to Monday’s white tie dinner at Buckingham Palace.

First Lady Melania Trump Dons Celine for Downing Street Garden Party

LONDON — First Lady Melania Trump swapped her summer whites for a more autumnal shade of khaki as Tuesday’s weather turned from warm and sunny to a more London shade of cold and gray.
She wore a fitted, beige Celine shirtdress for a garden party at Number 10 Downing Street, with Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband, Philip May.
She accented the all-business look with a black belt, gloves and matching crocodile Birkin bag. FLOTUS likes Celine so much that she wore a white shimmery dress from the house for last year’s White House holiday portrait.

Trump’s New York-based stylist Herve Pierre has made a habit of canvassing Madison Avenue boutiques and other designer outposts in the city in search of politically appropriate looks for his White House client.
Shopping off-the-rack, as he routinely does, requires a lot of legwork. He may have had his work cut out for him preparing for the London trip as Burberry is pretty much the only major luxury British brand with options fitting for a First Lady, and with several New York City locations.
She’ll be changing outfits once again this evening ahead of a

First Lady Melania Trump Wears Reem Acra for G20 Leaders’ Dinner

With the G20 in full swing, the powers that be gathered Friday night at the leaders’ dinner at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. First Lady Melania Trump dressed for the occasion in a custom Reem Acra column dress with a vintage belt and metallic pumps. Her yellow diamond stud earrings were chosen to accent the glittery belt. FLOTUS originally selected the dress for another occasion, but it turned out to be better suited for this one, her stylist Hervé Pierre said.
She and Acra, who is based in New York, are “very good friends,” and the designer suited up Trump for a formal dinner the night before last year’s inaugural, the stylist said. Describing Acra as “a dream,” Pierre said, “Designers can be difficult. [laughing] She is really nice.”
Of course, speculation centered on diplomatic relations, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the overheard informal exchange between the prince and French President Emmanuel Macron. While Trump met with prime minister of India Narendra Modi and Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe earlier in the day, the dinner lends itself to more relaxed conversations among world leaders.

President Trump Says He Plans to Sign an Executive Order Terminating Birthright Citizenship

Donald Trump’s tough stance on immigration was pushed even further on Monday night, when the president revealed his plans to terminate birthright citizenship.

In an interview with Axios on HBO, Trump said he hopes to sign an executive order that would end the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which gives right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on American soil.

“It’s in the process. It’ll happen with an executive order,” Trump said, surprised the Axios on HBO hosts knew about his plan. “I didn’t think anybody knew that but me. I thought I was the only one.”

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump said, adding that White House lawyers were working on it. “You can definitely do it with an act of Congress but now they’re saying I can do it with just an executive order.”

Many countries, including Canada, grant birthright citizenship, though Trump told Axios on HBO that it was only a problem in the United States.

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits,” Trump said. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”

News of Trump’s plan comes a week before the mid-term elections, where feelings about his polarizing immigration policy are expected to be a driving factor to the polls.

Immigration has been a major focus of controversy throughout Trump’s presidential campaign and presidency — from his promises to build a wall to his now-reversed zero-tolerance policy that separated migrant children from their families and held them at detainment centers at the U.S./Mexico border.

The president has also been escalating his threats about a migrant caravan of 4,000 Central Americans walking through Central America fleeing violence and grim living conditions in their home countries and expected to seek asylum in the United States. On Monday, the Pentagon announced the deployment of 5,200 additionally troops to meet the caravan at the border.

I called up the military, they’re wasting their time,” he told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham in a pre-recorded interview that aired Monday, maintaining his unconfirmed claim that the group of immigrants coming included “many gang members.”

As for what would happen to those immigrants applying for asylum, Trump said he plans to “build tent cities” and “hold” them there before their pending court dates rather than release them into the U.S.

“If they applied for asylum, we’re going to hold them until such time as their trial takes place,” Trump told Ingraham. “We’re going to put up, we’re going to build tent cities. We’re going to put tents up all over the place. We’re not going to build structures and spend all of this, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars — we’re going to have tents. … They’re going to be very nice.”

Melania and Donald Trump Gearing Up for Halloween at the White House

TRICK OR TREAT: Fright might be a common denominator across party lines, but the first couple will be taking a more playful approach to Halloween with a pre-holiday celebration Sunday at the White House.
First Lady Mamie Eisenhower was the first to celebrate Halloween at the White House with a luncheon for staffers’ wives in the State Dining Room. Skeleton decorations were strewn from the wall lights, and jack-o-lanterns, dried corn stalks, pumpkins and red apples added to the decor. But this weekend’s White House trick-or-treaters will be making the rounds, thanks to Caroline Kennedy and her late brother, John Jr., who were the first presidential children to celebrate the holiday with other children. The Kennedys also introduced a charitable component to the festivities with President Kennedy talking up UNICEF in 1961, according to the White House Historical Association. Former first daughter Amy Carter celebrated a birthday at the White House with a Halloween-themed party, as did Hillary Clinton decades later on more than one occasion. (Clinton turned 71 today.)
For Halloween with the Trumps, cornstalks will stretch along columns up to the second-floor Truman balcony, and assortment of foliage, decorative pumpkins, gourds and hay bales will add to the fall feel.

Melania Trump Says ‘Focus on What I Do, Not What I Wear’

PRACTICALLY SPEAKING: As any politician can attest, setting the stage is essential to an public appearance. While First Lady Melania Trump is once removed in terms of being an elected official, she made today’s visit to Cairo – the finale of a four African nation tour, a cinematic one with a visit to the Pyramids in Ginzi.
Her arrival in Egypt began with some of the ingredients of the standard airport meet-and-greet: Schoolchildren, her fellow First Lady Entissar al-Sisi and a red carpet. But what was the third of four diplomatic entrances this week bordered on silent, according to a press pool. No music played and “very tough security” kept a close eye. In addition, police manned rooftops as the motorcade made its way through the city streets. Although work weeks can reel into Cairo as many as 25 million people, traffic was not an issue, partially due to Saturday being a holiday, the pool said. Media types were advised to leave their electronic devices behind, when the caravan stopped at the presidential palace. There, Trump and Egypt President Abdul Fattah el-Sisi met behind closed doors for under an hour.
Today’s activities included paying a visit to officials at the U.S. Embassy

Melania Trump Aims to Spread Goodwill in Kenya

I’M GOING ON A SAFARI: Thousands of miles away from the swarm of anticipation for a final vote and what some might describe as beastly debate over the Senate vote for Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, First Lady Melania Trump carried on with her weeklong goodwill mission in Kenya on Friday. The action-packed day included a visit to an elephant orphanage, an hourlong safari, tea with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and a Sarakasi dance performance at Kenya’s National Theatre.
For a morning visit to Nairobi National Park, Trump dressed the part in a Ralph Lauren white button-down shirt, khaki colored pants and boots. Her white shirt remained “pristine,” during the 15-minute elephant feeding on red clay, the pool reporter noted.
After helping to feed orphaned elephants protected by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the First Lady added a white pith helmet to her ensemble before setting off to see giraffes, rhinos, hippos, zebras and other creatures on safari. Aside from the earth tones she has favored during her four-nation African trip, she also has varied her assortment of label choices beyond the European designer ones that many associate her with. This afternoon’s dance performance called for a quick wardrobe change —

Twin Peaks Creator David Lynch Says Trump Could Be ‘One of the Greatest Presidents in History’

David Lynch thinks Donald Trump‘s presidency has disrupted the America’s political system in a good way.

The Twin Peaks creator and director spoke to The Guardian about his political leanings, revealing that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary and thinks he voted Libertarian in the election. But although he didn’t support Trump, he now feels the real estate mogul’s administration could change the country for the better.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

While Lynch says he supports an outsider changing things, he doesn’t think Trump is doing a good job himself. He just hopes his win opens the door to more options to serve as president.

“Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done,” Lynch said. “Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.
