    The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trump’s perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else. That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first lady’s presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright...

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

    Kellyanne Conway isn’t mincing words when it comes to who she thinks is the ‘superior’ first lady.(snip) It just got a little shadier in Washington, DC! White House counselor Kellyanne Conway bumped into TMZ in the nation’s capital, and the photog talked to her about Melania Trump not being featured on any magazine covers as first lady, while Michelle Obama was on thirty covers in her eight years in office. Conway didn’t miss a beat, telling TMZ, “Melania Trump is such a superior and excellent first lady. This country is so lucky to have her. “As first lady…her work with...

    When French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, arrive Tuesday at the White House, they will be greeted by a military band playing strains of brassy notes and a 21-gun salute in a pomp-filled ceremony that will be followed by a state dinner. The first official state visit of the Trump administration will be the biggest moment yet for first lady Melania Trump to play hostess-in-chief, an element of her role she enjoys more than some of the other duties that have come with her position.(snip) “Remember, she has a design background,” Grisham said, referencing Trump’s career as a...

    Donald Trump may have chosen not to attend Barbara Bush’s funeral on Saturday, but social media users still found a way to talk about him in his absence. After the president’s wife Melania Trump was spotted smiling and sharing a laugh with Barack Obama before the service in Houston, it didn’t take long before social media users began to joke about how even though she was at a funeral, she appeared to be having a good time away from her husband. “Melania looks happier at a funeral than she has in ages.

    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...

In a yacht club chic frock by Carolina Herrera, Mrs. Trump glowed in the Florida sunshine as she glamorously walked through Mar-a-Lago, eventually stopping to have lunch alongside Mrs. Abe. The Carolina Herrera number features black and white stripes, a criss-cross bodice, an off-the-shoulder neckline, and a full A-line skirt cut at tea-length. The dress is nearly sold out for $2,990 at Neiman Marcus...

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump.

    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....

    I for one am glad that James Comey has found a new career in which he can use the skills he’s developed over a lifetime: "This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values," Comey writes in the book, according to The New York Times. "His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty."  - USA Today That’s impressive analysis given his limited contact with President Trump. Most psychoanalysts require dozens of hour long sessions with a client before developing a psychological profile. But then, most of them have never worked for the F.B.I.. He says Trump...
