Melania Trump wears skintight $1,200 leather trousers to fly

She’s very rarely seen without her perfectly coiffed hair and towering heels and it appears Melania Trump doesn’t even relax her style when she flies.

While most of us throw on our comfiest tracksuit bottoms and pile our hair on the top of our head, the First Lady was snapped wearing a pair of $1,200 Helmut Lang leather leggings for her flight.

President Donald Trump, his wife and son Barron, were making their way back to the White House, after spending New Year’s Eve in Mar-A-Lago.

Melania, who was wearing heavy eye-make-up, held on to her husband’s hand as they walked across the White House lawn.

She teamed her pricey leggings with a pair of burgundy killer heels and a matching carry bag.

The 47-year-old appeared to be wearing a burgundy polo neck, which she covered with a mushroom-coloured winter coat.

Trump held an opulent ball for the rich and the famous at his Florida club on Year’s Eve, with the President arriving dressed in a tuxedo for the occasion.

Melania wore a $7,300 Erdem satin, 1940’s style dress on the night, which featured shimmering pink material.

And while the dress may be sold out online now, it’s been ripped online, with people claiming it looks like a shower curtain or a table cloth.
