All of Donald and Melania Trump’s Met Gala looks, when they still got invited: she wore Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli and Vera Wang … while Don wore the same suit and bow tie every year
Melania Trump (then Knauss, before her marriage) joined Donald at the Met Gala in 2004 in an all-black, floor-length gown.
The theme of the 2004 gala was “Dangerous Liaisons: Fashion and Furniture in the 18th Century.”
Melania wore an Alexander McQueen ball gown in 2005.
At the 2007 gala, Donald wore his black tuxedo with a bow tie, and Melania wore a shimmering gold dress designed by Roberto Cavalli.
Melania wore a hot pink Vera Wang gown in 2008. The theme of the 2008 gala was “Superheroes”.
The tuxedo made another appearance at the 2009 gala, while Melania wore a black Dolce & Gabbana dress. Guests dressed according to the theme “The Model As Muse”.
“I think for a while everyone was trying to figure out what to do. Unfortunately, it really doesn’t have anything to do with [Melania], but she is representing what’s happening politically and what’s happening politically right now is not really good for anyone,” he told Time magazine in 2017.
For the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” Met Gala in 2011, Melania wore a gold dress by Reem Acra. She paired the dress with a gold Alexander McQueen bag, while Trump wore his go-to tuxedo.
At their last Met Gala appearance, Trump wore what appears to be the same tuxedo, and Melania chose a dramatic white minidress with pointy shoulder pads. The theme that year was “Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations”.
