After canceling a planned Christmas trip amid the ongoing government shutdown to stay at the White House with her husband, First Lady Melania Trump left Washington, D.C., to enjoy New Years Eve at the familys Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

Ping to the First Lady's List!
Ping for a Class Act!
Bravo! Melania, and Happy New Year!
She looks so different...much blonder than usual.
I think it’s the shine of the flash in contrast with the dark surroundings.
I’m just concerned about the man with the laser eyes in the background...
Even People Magazine can’t refrain from injecting their political bias when reporting about the Trumps.

That’s where Amanda was that night ... said she was washing her hair.
Effects of the lighting.
Our Melania does get very subtle and beautifully done highlights. Quite flattering, particularly as time goes by.
Our lovely First Ladys true class was on full display when she arranged to have former WH staffers who were not of high rank attend H W Bushs funeral. So compassionate and thoughtful. I suspect thats typical for our beautiful Melania.
“Tickets at the clubs party reportedly went for up to $1,000 an increase from past gatherings and another example of the rising cost of attendance there, which critics have described as an unscrupulous blending of Trumps political influence and personal profit.”
Is there a ‘Trump Event Management Agency’ currently running things while President Trump is President? 0bama did it while UNSCRUPULOUSLY blending his ‘political influence and personal profit.’

It is basic supply and demand. Since the demand has grown, the price is raised to limit the supply of tickets. Having said that, I doubt that even $1,000 is a financial hardship for most, if any, of the members of the club. Non-story.
Yep. They’re just being snotty, LOL!
Back when I was a ‘Mover & A Shaker’ in Capital City, I used to attend annual events that were $500-$1K a head; pretty party dresses, fur coats, the ‘good’ jewels, high heals, etc.
They were pretty spectacular, though I’m glad that was only a small *Blip* in my life. ;)
