As President Donald Trump harangued Germany and other allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, his wife chatted amiably with some of their spouses at a music conservatory in a wooded park in Waterloo, near the Belgian capital. Klein is an all-American fashion house, but its chief creative officer, Raf Simons, is Belgian.
They also viewed an exhibit of hats by Belgian designer Fabienne Delvigne and were offered delicacies created by Herman Van Dender, a pastry maker and chocolatier who is the official supplier to the Belgian royal house.
Trump and his wife were expected to attend a dinner Wednesday at the Art & History Museum overlooking a large park, the Parc du Cinquantenaire.
While her husband discussed world affairs and openly critiqued his European counterparts at NATO headquarters, Trump smiled warmly at multiple photo opportunities, greeting Amelie Derbaudrenghien, who is the partner of Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, and Ingrid Schulerud, wife of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
They were then escorted into a music auditorium with tall glass windows offering views into the woods behind the school for performances of Tchaikovsky's Valse Scherzo and music by Hubay and Piazzolla.
At a meeting with the other first lady the wife of Donald trump came in a dark blue Calvin Klein dress for $ 2430.
USA first lady Melania Trump kicked off her first day on a multi-stop European visit with an event hosted by Belgium at the prestigious suburban Brussels music conservatory.
There, she and 10 other spouses were given a tour of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, a training center for gifted young musicians housed in a modernistic glass building.
