For her first trip to Washington, D.C. as the future First Lady, Melania Trump stuck with a demure all-black ensemble as she accompanied her husband Donald to the White House.
The 46-year-old former model donned a double breasted black coat, a black skirt, and black Christian Louboutin pumps on Thursday, choosing a rather somber outfit for their appearance at the nation's capital.
Although Michelle Obama wasn't seen at all during the trip, Melania had a private meeting with the First Lady and Joe Biden's wife Jill before she and the president-elect traveled to Capital Hill together.

The future first lady also had a pale pink opaque manicure
Melania's monochromatic ensemble was a far cry from the $4,000 white Ralph Lauren silk crepe jumpsuit she wore on election night.
And while Michelle is a fashion icon in her own right, it's unclear what she wore to greet Melania in the White House for the first time.
While President Barack Obama and the president-elect met at the White House on Thursday morning for more than 90 minutes in a public display of unity following the election, Michelle was no where to be seen.

This one goes out to Michelle Obama. Thank you for eight wonderful years of sophistication, class and not to mention--an iconic sense style.
Today was no exception for the unimpeachably perfect First Lady as she welcomed the future FLOTUS to the White House for a friendly cup of tea.
Mrs. Obama wore a gorgeous, custom-made navy sheathe from the designer's Spring 2016 collection which was instantly recognizable for the punchy orange circular banding that cut through the center of the garment.
Sadly, her dress has long sold out but we're inspired by the First Lady's tried and true, ladylike style.
That being said, why don't you make like Michelle with one of the figure flattering alternatives we've rounded up below.

Picturesque: The couple met with House Speaker Paul Ryan, who showed them the view from his balcony on Capitol Hill
During the trip, Donald and Melania were photographed holding hands as they walked alongside Majority Leader Mich McConnell and Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
The couple met with House Speaker Paul Ryan, who showed them the views of Pennsylvania Avenue, as well as the inaugural stand that is being built, from his balcony on Capitol Hill before they posed for photographs together.
The Slovenian born mother-of-one left her highlighted hair loose around her shoulders, opting for natural-looking make-up and a nude lip.

Donald and Melania departed from LaGuardia airport in New York at 9:36 am on his way to Washington on Thursday morning on his personal aircraft, a 757, emblazoned with his name. They arrived at Ronald Reagan National Airport just after 10:30 am.
The future first couple entered the White House complex twenty minutes later via a back entrance through the South Lawn that is inaccessible to media.
Donald’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer and a senior adviser to the president-elect’s campaign, was also in tow.
Jared, who is married to Donald's oldest daughter Ivanka, was seen in the Oval Office as Donald and President Obama spoke to the media.
