First Lady Melania Trump stepped out solo Sunday night to attend an annual gala
in Washington DC as her husband landed in Singapore ahead of the
highly-anticipated meeting with Kim Jong-un.
Melania, who wore a black $2,700 Escada gown, was Honorary Chair for the annual
gala paying tribute to former President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. She
delivered remarks on stage at the end of the program.
This appearance is one of Melania's first since being away from the public eye
for 25 days while she recovered from kidney surgery.
She made her first public appearance last week at a Gold Star event.
