Melania Trump looked festive in her recent engagement.

The first lady of the United States looked very fashionable when she arrived at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. on Monday for the Toys for Tots event hosted by the Marine Corps. Melania donned a $1,980 striped Gucci midi skirt with matching leather belt and embellished red buttons. She paired it with a cream sweater and knee-length red leather boots, Daily Mail reported.

Melania stuck to her signature hairstyle by keeping her locks loose as it fell on her shoulders. She accessorized with minimal jewelry by opting for a diamond band on her finger.

The Toys for Tots program has been providing toys and other presents to millions of kids around the country at Christmas. It has been around since the 1940s. Melania’s visit was the third time she volunteered to join the event by giving kids white “Be Best” backpacks.

The White House announced earlier that the first lady is donating books for the organization’s literacy program this holiday season. The FLOTUS did the same last year.

During the visit, Melania was photographed hugging the children as they clamored around her. She was also seen squatting down with the little ones to speak on them at eye-level at the event. She was also spotted holding hands with a little girl and walking her over to the tables where children made holiday cards.

Melania’s supporters were very happy and proud of her efforts. Many thanked Melania for visiting the kids on Twitter.

“Thank you, Flotus. It means the world to them. My 11 year old granddaughter is battling lukemia. Thank you for your support of our children,” one netizen commented on Melania’s post.

Another said that he appreciates Melania’s excellent leadership of performance and compassion. He also described the FLOTUS as the “great and brightest U.S. first lady.”

However, some of Melania’s critics also attacked her for spending time with kids after she released a statement saying that children should be kept out of politics. Some even accused the first lady of using the kids as props for photo ops.
