‘Stunned all’: Melania Trump hosts Log Cabin Republican fundraiser in Valentino dress, Louboutin stilettos

Former First Lady Melania Trump made what was reported to be her second solo appearance in support of husband Donald Trump’s presidential bid.

Looking as elegant as ever, Melania hosted a fundraiser for the LGBTQ group known as the Log Cabin Republicans in the former president’s penthouse at Trump Tower.

In covering the event, Page Six referred to Mrs. Trump as the “former — and possibly future — first lady,” while reporting that she “stunned all in attendance.” Citing “a spy,” the outlet said Melania was wearing a “fire engine red Valentino dress with appliqué flowers in the same fabric and Christian Louboutin pumps.”

“Hors d’oeuvres and champagne flowed as the first lady generously welcomed the guests to her home with off-the-cuff remarks,” a guest was quoted as saying.

The event raked in over $1.4 million, according to Page Six, which said it followed another fund-raiser at the Fifth Avenue home of Duke and Hannah Buchan.

“Both events were sold out in a short period of time,” and at each of them Melania was “elegant and eloquent. She took the time to speak with everyone,” the outlet quotes a source.

A guest told Page Six, “Melania took photos and gave a beautiful speech about the importance of unity. She also said about the election, ‘We will see what happens, but, we must win.’ ”

Attendees reportedly included former Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, ex-Sen. Kelly Loeffler, Ric Grenell, who was the first openly gay person in a Cabinet-level position when Trump appointed him as acting director of national intelligence, Nazee Moinian, former diplomats Georgette Mosbacher and John Rakolta and his wife, Terry, Bill White and Bryan Eure, and former US Attorney General Matt Whitaker.

Melania Trump has not been seen on the campaign trail much, but she did host a Log Cabin Republicans event at Mar-a-Lago in April.

The LGBTQ group took to social media to express its appreciation for the support from Mrs. Trump.

“This was an amazingly spectacular event, for Log Cabin Republicans and the future of the Republican Party. We cannot be thankful enough to @MelaniaTrump for her leadership and support of equality for all. This Republican Party is one for ALL Americans,” the group posted on X.
