The day before she flew to Paris, Melania donned a somber black dress to watch Brett Kavanaugh formally take his seat as the 114th justice on the Supreme Court Thursday.
The first lady joined her husband at the traditional investiture ceremony, wearing the same Dolce & Gabbana coat dress that she wore to Barbara Bush’s funeral service in April.
She accessorized the look with a pair of $625 black Manolo Blahnik pumps and elbow-length leather gloves, which she left on while posing for photos with the Supreme Court justices.
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was noticeably absent from the photos; she was hospitalized after a fall in her office that led her to fracture three ribs
Ginsburg’s injuries and the news of another mass shooting in California put a damper on what probably would have been a more festive event.
