First Lady Melania Trump looks absolutely stunning tonight during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address. All eyes were on Melania when she first entered the room. For a woman who tried to stay out of the spotlight during her husband’s campaign, she has taken to her role as First Lady seriously, while still focusing on raising their son Baron Trump. See more photos of Melania in this article, looking poised and confident during the President’s speech.

Melania received a standing ovation as she entered the State of the Union. This year she chose to wear an all-white pantsuit that looked amazing on her. Last year, Melania wore a stunning black dress that sparkled while also looking very professional. It was designed by Michael Kors and cost $9,500 full price. Despite how people are split over her husband, most people like Melania. She’s a calming presence in the White House and for America, which has helped her gain popularity. Here’s another video of Melania:
