Melania Trump news: First Lady in sold-out look as she unveils secret visit to Microsoft
Melania Trump’s trip to Microsoft in Washington State came as part of her Be Best campaign. It focuses on well-being for youth, and advocates against cyberbullying and drug use. Following her recent outing, the First Lady gave her 2.8 million Instagram followers a look at what she got up to at the headquarters of the technology company. The 48-year-old captioned the video: “Great visit to @microsoft in Washington State last week! #BeBest.”
In the video, she can be seen meeting with members of the Microsoft team, as well as hearing presentations about spending time using technology.
In one clip, Melania could be seen looking at a screen which addressed Safer Internet Day, an event which will next take place on February 4 2020.
Another part of the footage shows some data highlighting screen time consumption.
The First Lady is often admired for her style choices.
During her outing, Melania wore a chic grey-purple coat.
She wore the mid-length item, which is a Bottega Veneta AW18 coat, buttoned up.
The mother-of-one also sported a similar coloured midi skirt, as well as a vibrant yellow roll neck jumper.
The First Lady could be seen walking with her husband Donald Trump, 72, and their son Barron Trump, 12.
She wore a beige double-breasted Burberry coat, with skinny black trousers.
Melania also donned a pair of knee-high Gianvito Rossk boots.
While her jacket seems to have sold out online, the shoes are still available to purchase.
However, these designer slouchy boots won’t come cheap – selling for £1,110 at Net-A-Porter.
