Melania Trump pays strange tribute to saree in bubblegum pink dress for Rashtrapati Bhavan dinner

Melania Trump paid a strange tribute to the saree in a bubblegum pink dress for the Rashtrapati Bhavan dinner.

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made multiple visits in Delhi today – including the ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and a stop at Raj Ghat in the morning. The couple has now arrived at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, where President Ram Nath Kovind is hosting a special dinner for his US counterpart.

For the occasion, Melania opted for a bubblegum pink long gown with a knee-high slit, giving a strange tribute to the Indian sartorial staple – the saree.

The dress was adorned with flowy exaggerated sleeves, a loose silhouette and a high neck. The neckline featured a long bow, which rested on her shoulders. The bow detail looked like an overdone tribute to the pallu. Melania accessorised the outfit with pretty white kundan jhumkas and a pair of gold kitten heels.

For her hairdo, she opted for a middle-parted bun with a few strands of her locks framing her face. She went with her signature style of subtle make-up, sleek eyeliner and pink lips.

As for Trump, he accompanied his wife in a navy blazer and pants paired with a striped tie and a crisp shirt.

For the dinner today, an elaborate menu with multiple vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies has been prepared for the couple. The starters will include salmon fish tikka, aloo tikki, spinach chaat and a variety of soups. As for the main course, Rashtrapati Bhavan’s famous Dal Raisina will be there.

As Donald Trump is especially fond of meat, he will also be served mutton biryani and a mutton raan dish. He will also be served dum guchchi matar (a morel mushroom dish cooked with peas) and mint raita. For dessert, the US President and his family will relish hazelnut-apple with vanilla ice cream and malpua with rabdi.

Earlier today, Melania dazzled the fashion police in a stunning white button-down midi shirt dress by Carolina Herrera.

The dress that she wore featured lotus-like floral motifs all over the ensemble, which she styled with a wide red coloured belt and white stilettos.
