Fashion duel: Melania Trump vs. Monika Babiš

Czech Prime Minister, Andrej Babiš, today finished his three-day business journey to the US. Of course, he couldn´t leave his wife Monika at home and it was her presence which didn´t go unnoticed.

Fendi - a travel companion

The models which Monika Babiš brought with her to the US, were a feast for the eyes. For a visit of the White House she placed her bet on the luxury brand of Fendi and together with beautiful Melania Trump they showed that they both have fashion firmly under control!

Already the trip to the US, Monika Babiš started with grace. For this occasion, she put on a luxury white coat by Fendi with a striking real fur trim and complement the outfit by a Hermès Birkin handbag of nude shade. 

Fashion duel in the White House: Monika Babiš vs Melanie Trump

For a visit to the White House, Monika Babiš wore Fendi in combination with Jimmy Choo. Monika sported a double-breasted pink jacket with real fur from the Fendi Resort 2019 collection by Karl Lagerfeld. Was it also meant as a gesture of recognition of the unique work of the legendary designer? As an accessory she picked a handbag in a neutral tone of ivory and put on luxury high heels by Jimmy Choo. Under the jacket she wore a cream-coloured dress with three-quarter-length sleeves which fitted her to perfection.

The famous style of Melanie Trump has not sufficed this time round

Melania Trump on the other hand went for a bold green shade and wore a trench coat by British designer and model, Alexa Chung. This she accompanied by legendary footwear with red soles of Christian Louboutin, namely the So Kate model.

Melanie Trump did not take off her trench coat throughout the entire visit of the White House, which is a pity. The outcome of the fashion duel thus speaks in favour of Monika Babišová, who showed that she thought the outfit through and through and overall it was just easier on our fashion eye.

Not only the visit of the White House

Within the framework of his agenda in the USA, Andrej Babiš with his wife Monika did not head only to the White House. A part of their journey was also a visit of the Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk memorial, a visit to the American Chamber of Commerce, a formal dinner at the Embassy of the Czech Republic or participation in an NBA match.

At an event organised by Melania Trump, Babišová looked stunning. But not so at a traumatology centre

Outwith the agenda, Babišová also visited a non-profit organisation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America or a traumatology centre for war veterans. In this case she did not much charm us in her white dress with brown spots, which she selected for this occasion. However, she showed some style at the prestigious 2019 International Women of Courage Award, to which she was invited by Melania Trump herself. In a sky-blue dress with widening sleeves she looked at least as good as in the White House. 

Nobody can say that Monika Babiš doesn´t look very representative, indeed

The bottom line is. Although some reproach Monika Babiš for her ostentatious style and the exorbitant prices of the outfits which she put on for her journey to the US, one thing cannot be denied; after a long time, the Czech Republic has a lady who understands her role of representing our country.

Not every day do the wives of the two most powerful men of the United States of America and the Czech Republic meet in the White House. Although in the majority of cases, attention focuses on powerful men, this time it was a little different and the whole world was watching the fashion show in the White House, headed by Melanie Trump and Monika Babiš!

Monika is criticised by many for her costly selection of clothes.

In this respect I would perhaps say only one thing: the wardrobe of Monika Babiš is not coming out of the taxpayers´ pocket, so calm down! But back to the White House. Monika in her sweet pink Fendi coat literally took my breath away!!! Curiously enough, I was surprised at the Fendi price tag of CZK 135,700,-. But for one to look like a blond version of Jacqueline Kennedy, it is certainly worth it!

Then there are the Jimmy Choo high heels, a luxury handbag, all first-class acts! However, as regards the choice of the cream-coloured dress, I was slightly disappointed. Yes, I do know that Monika had to be conservative, but the cut of the dress unnecessarily added inches and the fit was not one hundred percent perfect.

The dress: 90 %, make-up and hair: 99 %

Then there is Melania Trump, a former model who simply knows what she´s doing!

The opal-green coat by Alexa Chung for me personally was unfortunately a little disappointing. Moreover, that cheap-looking round clip on the belt is a little annoying for me. Indeed, this didn´t quite hit the mark. And when I saw how she didn´t remove the coat and at the same time one could see a cream skirt poking underneath, I wouldn´t be surprised if the poor girl just managed to choose the same dress as Monika and by not taking the coat off, she only prevented an international faux pas. Believe me, at that point, this tiny visit from the Czech Republic would suddenly be examined by the whole world!

The dress: 70 %, make-up and hair: 80 %

Not always is the presentation of the Czech Republic government at important visits abroad perfect. However, Monika Babišová proved that it can be done, and I feel a certain amount of pride! Bravo!
