At each of the 130 place settings there was a menu, with the White House seal and the fleur-de-lis, which were...

    Melania Trump attended the funeral of Barbara Bush on Saturday with two very special guests by her side: private resident staffers who had worked under the former first lady during her eight years in the White House. “Mrs. Trump brought George Hainey, former head Maître D’at the White House, and Buddy Carter, a current butler, to the funeral with her as invited guests,” White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told PEOPLE. “She knew they were very close to the Bush family and wanted them to be able to pay their respects.” Bush, who died at 92 on Tuesday, was laid to...

    PALM BEACH, FLORIDA – U.S. first lady Melania Trump might be one of the few not overly awed by a marble-bedecked and gold-plated Gilded Age mansion that she and counterpart Akie Abe toured Wednesday. While U.S. President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe golfed at the president’s nearby country club, their wives visited Whitehall — the 75-room, 100,000-square-foot (9,290-square-meter) waterside retreat that oil and railroad tycoon Henry Flagler built as a wedding present for his third wife, Mary Lily Kenan Flagler. The Flaglers wintered there beginning in 1902, and it is now the centerpiece of the Flagler Museum. Arriving...

    First Lady Melania Trump visited the “Prescribed to Death” memorial this week for Americans who have died in the opioid crisis. Mrs. Trump kept her ensemble colorful in a pale pink Max Mara coat, similar to a Jil Sander coat she has previously worn, and a yellow-green dress that perfectly matched a pair of yellow-green, suede Christian Louboutins. The chilly Spring has kept Mrs. Trump in a series of suits, coats, and pants, though she has celebrated the season in bright colors. Mrs. Trump wore a similar color palette last month in a coral Emilio Pucci suit and yellow sweater....

    First Lady Melania Trump rocked gold embroidered pumps for a Saturday night date with President Trump at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., ignoring the fallout from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel’s underhanded personal attacks. Mrs. Trump stepped out in an A-line black coat, a silhouette she has repeated during cold weather days, pairing the simplistic ensemble with a baroque, Versace-esque pair of black pumps that featured gold embroidery and a gold heel. The first lady, nor President Donald Trump, have spoken publicly since Kimmel mocked Mrs. Trump’s accent during his monologue last week. Kimmel released a statement on Sunday...

    First Lady Melania Trump strutted in style on Monday alongside President Donald Trump as she departed the White House for New Hampshire to speak about America’s opioid crisis. Wearing a navy coat with a funnel-like collar by French luxury brand Chloé and breathtakingly rich Gianvito Rossi knee-high Italian leather boots, Mrs. Trump was easily the most fashionable woman in the room (not uncommon for her) during the event on opioids. Mrs. Trump chose big brown-shaded sunglasses to conceal her smokey eyes from the sunlight. The knee-high boots paired with long coats and dresses look that Mrs. Trump chose has been...

    President Trump and Melania greeted Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu and First Lady Sara Netanyahu at the White House Monday afternoon. The executives couples have had a cozy relationship since Trump’s election. President Trump made Israel one of his first stops during his first international trip as president and stunned the world when he followed through on his promise to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Melania and Sara Netanyahu both wore light blue, incidentally a similar color to that of the Israeli flag. Both presidents were wearing light blue ties. Symbolic? Who knows.

    Melania Trump, 47, wife of Donald Trump, 71, President of the US, posted a heartfelt video on Instagram just over a week after Valentine’s Day. However, the video was not dedicated to her husband, nor is anything known of whether they spent part of the romantic day together. Instead, Melania spent the day visiting children in Bethesda, Maryland to make Valentine’s Day – and later posted a video which didn’t feature Donald either. Melania wore a red coat to visit the Children’s Inn at the National Institute of Health. In the video, Melania is seen bending down to talk to...

Newman, a former "Apprentice" contestant, has been critical of President Trump when discussing her tumultuous year in the White House to other show contestants.

    Nope, ladies. No more mulligans for Melania. Thanks to recent revelations of an alleged affair her husband had years ago, a bipartisan sisterhood is coming to the first lady's side. She has been defended and protected. Even a "Saturday Night Live" skit over the weekend gave her the closest thing to sympathy that merciless crew can muster. The truth is, Melania Trump is not a delicate flower or a victim. She is a grown woman, an immigrant who made it in a cutthroat industry. She is capable of tackling tough issues, of respecting the responsibility and opportunity she's been given....
