With the holidays inching closer, there were more White House traditions for Melania Trump to participate in this week. While last week included the turkey pardons, this week Trump got to not only show off her home’s holiday decorations, but also take part in the lighting of the National Christmas Tree.

This is what she wore.

When Melania Trump got dressed on Monday in a voluminous, bell-sleeved white Dior dress and gold heels, looking like an angel ready to be propped at the top of a Christmas tree, she probably didn’t know that it’d stir a million memes. But it did.

Footage taken on Monday, with Trump showing off the White House’s glaringly white Christmas decorations, was immediately turned into a meme, with Trump in the background of shots looking remarkably haunting as ballerinas pranced around her.

We honestly can’t hate on that dress, though.

Pairing the wrap coat with nude Louboutin stilettos, this is just about as festive as Trump gets.
