The coat was chosen to pay homage to American military service members, with the designer’s own father a wounded veteran who sustained lifelong disabilities in the line of service.
For the campaign donors dinner held at Union Station in Washington DC, the former model dazzled in a sequinned gold, figure-hugging gown by Reem Acra.
For the official ceremony where Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, Melania opted for a cornflower blue Ralph Lauren ensemble, with many commenting how the look was reminiscent of a look worn by former First Lady Jackie O.
Then later for the Inauguration Ball the First Lady chose a gown designed by former Carolina Herrera creative director, Hervé Pierre.
The FLOTUS co-designed the off-the-shoulder cream silk gown with Pierre which also featured a ruffle, a red silk ribbon on the waist and a rather daring thigh-high split for a first lady.
At the National Prayer Service the following day, Melania channeled Kate Middleton in a chic black coat dress.
Meanwhile First Daughter Ivanka Trump also made a seriously sartorial statement across the three days.
At the pre-inaugural ceremony Ivanka stood out in a bold green Oscar de la Renta ensemble.
Ivanka turned to Oscar de la Renta again for the pre-inauguration dinner, in a white gown with dramatic bow detailing.
For the official ceremony, Ivanka opted for a white pantsuit (some meaning behind that perhaps, Ivanka?) again by Oscar de la Renta.
At the Inauguration Ball the First Daughter had a princess moment in a dazzling Carolina Herrera gown.
Finally, the National Prayer Service, Ivanka turned to Oscar de la Renta one final time, opting for a burgundy velvet coat dress which she wore with matching headband, pumps and handbag.
