Outgoing first lady Melania Trump sported an orange-emblazoned Gucci dress after arriving in Palm Beach, Florida, from Washington, DC, with former President Donald Trump. This marked the duo’s last flight on Air Force One as president and first lady.
Her bombastic dress, which costs $3,700, stood in stark contrast to the black Chanel jacket and Dolce & Gabbana dress she wore while leaving the White House. Neither Melania nor Donald Trump wore masks while boarding or disembarking from Air Force One.
The couple emerged from the presidential jet at 11:08 a.m., NBC reported, around an hour before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden kicked off in DC.
The Trumps, now Florida residents, waved to a crowd of supporters and took a motorcade to the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort, where the pair opted to go in lieu of attending the incoming president’s inaugural bash.
Before departing for Florida, Trump gave a sendoff address to supporters at Joint Base Andrews.
“It is my greatest honor and privilege to have been your president,” he said to cheers. “I wish the new administration great luck and great success, and I think they’ll have great success. They have the foundation to do something really spectacular.”
