Mrs. Trump arrived at Buckingham Palace in a sharp white skirt suit with a crisp navy collar and belt by the Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana, matched to a custom Hervé Pierre double face wool crepe hat with a midnight blue silk hatband. Mrs. Trump’s navy Manolo Blahnik stilettos were nearly dyed-to-match the suit’s collar and belt.
The white hat, as Fashion Notes has chronicled, has become an iconic signature of Mrs. Trump’s.
Last year, for instance, she donned three white hats — a pith hat on safari, a custom Hervé Pierre hat while the French were in town, and a Chanel hat for her quasi-photo shoot amongst the Egyptian pyramids.
For her fourth white hat moment, Mrs. Trump channeled a 21st Century, contemporary Audrey Hepburn as “Eliza Doolittle” in 1964’s My Fair Lady with the fiercely biais angle of the hat and the ensemble’s head-to-toe, two-tone color story.
