Melania stuns in style at ‘Be Best’ campaign in Wyoming

Melania Trump traveled to Wyoming last Thursday to promote her “Be Best” initiative and teach young children about some of America’s “most treasured National Parks.” And Melania reportedly did all this while adorned in garments befitting a fashion queen.

“After arriving in Jackson, Wyoming, Mrs. Trump joined a group of the Jackson District Boy Scouts at Jackson Hole Town Square, under the iconic elk antler arches,” a White House press release reads.

Later that afternoon, she and a group of local fourth graders “traveled by river raft down a scenic stretch of Jackson Hole’s Snake River.”

Watch:

But it was during her trip the following day to Grand Teton National Park when her fashion sense really began to shine through.

“Photographs of Mrs. Trump posed in front of the Grand Teton mountain range could be ripped from the pages of American Vogue, appearing as though they were taken as a campaign by Bruce Weber for the latest Ralph Lauren collection,” Breitbart fashion critic John Binder notes.

“Mrs. Melania Trump wore an army green puffer jacket by Rag and Bone, a white cashmere turtleneck by the brand Joseph, matching J Brand skinny jeans, and suede ankle boots by Christian Louboutin,” he wrote. “Of course Mrs. Trump’s sunglasses, a pair of tortuous shell shades, are by Saint Laurent, similar to those she wore the day before when getting adventurous in the mountains with the Boy Scouts.”

Look:

She was joined at the park by Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt, Acting Superintendent of Grand Teton National Park Gopaul Noojiabail and a bunch of kids.

“The First Lady met with dozens of second and fourth graders inside the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center. Inside, the young students were at various stations set up around the room. Each station had an activity to help children learn more about the outdoors,” the White House press release notes.

“Mrs. Trump distributed ‘Every Kid Outdoors’ passes – a continuation from last month when she distributed passes at the reopening of the Washington Monument,” the press release adds. “The passes are part of a National Park Service’s program, which provides fourth graders with free access to beautiful parks and waters across the country.”

Before returning home on Friday, the first lady made one last visit — this one to Snake River Outlook, where she reportedly “read about the area’s geography and took in the views of the Teton Range.”

“This trip highlighted some of the beautiful national parks, lands, and waters that make up our country,” Melania said afterward in a public statement.

“Spending time outdoors with children and learning more about our incredible and complex surroundings was a very meaningful experience for me,” she said. “I want to thank the people of Wyoming for making me feel so welcomed. I also want to thank the many dedicated organizations including Jackson District Boy Scouts and the National Park Service for all they do in protecting and taking care of our national parks.”

The trip turned out to be a resounding success, save for one detail. While she’d originally been scheduled to also visit Yellowstone National Park during the two-day stay in Wyoming, those plans were cancelled at the last minute due to bad weather.

“First lady Melania Trump canceled her visit to Yellowstone National Park at the last minute on Friday due to an impending storm that might have prevented her from flying back to Washington, D.C.,” the Bozeman Daily Chronicle confirmed.

“They just didn’t want to take any risks with the weather, and that’s the risk of coming here in October,” park superintendent Cam Sholly said to the paper. “We look forward to having her back another time.”

As of Sunday morning, the temperature at the park was just 21 degrees Fahrenheit with an expected high of only 40 degrees.
