It’s not often that Melania Trump is spotted
in a pair of flat shoes. After all, the First Lady of the United States
has had a longstanding love affair with soaring heels, trusty stilettos and go-to Christian
Louboutins — the latter of which she wore six times in the past week, kicking off a
red-sole streak during her European tour with President Donald Trump.
But today at the Helsinki Airport in Finland, the former model begged to differ. Unlike
her usual airport style, which consists of statement designer names with their corresponding
headline-making heel heights, Trump opted for another pair of Louboutins — but in
ultra-low elevation. She slipped on the brand’s “Solasofia”
flat, which featured a pointed-toe ballerina silhouette in a classic nude nappa leather
that not only offered a chic and timeless neutral look, but also contrasted beautifully
with her tanned skin tone. Keeping in the same color family, Trump wore
complementary tailored leather pants and a gray coat accentuated with pockets and buttons
in a similar brown hue. She completed the business-ready ensemble with a crisp collared
white blouse, oversized sunglasses and a brown bag.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in a summit
at one of Finnish President Sauli Niinisto’s official residences in Helsinki, the 19th
century Presidential Palace near the capital’s internationally known Market Square.
