Melania Trump is never one to hold back when it comes to fashion.

The First Lady of the United States opted for a silver and gray sparkling Monique Lhullier gown for the White House Historical Association dinner last night. The dazzling ensemble was a far cry away from the look she sported earlier in the day—a baggy shirt, Converse tennis shoes and jeans—when she visited areas struck by Hurricane Irma in Florida. 

Rather, this gown—which featured a floor-length slip-style dress underneath a sequined chiffon overlay—racks up to a whopping $8,000.

She belted the dress at the waist and accessorized the look with minimal jewelry, wearing her hair down and wavy.

Melania sparkled alongside her husband President Donald Trump as they welcomed their guests to the fancy, black-tie dinner event.

Of course, this is just one of FLOTUS' many fashionable looks. Scroll below to see more!
