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!
