Melania Trump was suited up today at the White House, opting for touches of pink, to help honor baseball hero Mariano Rivera at the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony.

The first lady chose a Dior suit with a cream-colored blazer and matching cropped, wide-leg pants. Her pink sweater matched the hue of her pointed-toe pumps by Manolo Blahnik. The luxury label’s BB pumps are a favorite of the former model, who often soars in stiletto heels taller than 4 inches high.

The namesake designer crafted the shoes more than a decade ago and named them after French movie star Brigitte Bardot. “It’s a good shoe for every occasion,” he has said of the classic style. The shoes cost around $625 at retailers like Nordstrom and go up in price depending on fabrications.

Melania joined her husband, President Donald Trump, to recognize former NY Yankees player Rivera, whose athletic and philanthropic work was celebrated.

“Proud to recognize Mariano Rivera at the @WhiteHouse today to receive the Medal of Freedom,” she captioned a photo. “We celebrate his incredible career in baseball and ability to bring people together, not only through [his] love of the game but also his philanthropic efforts.”

For nearly 20 years, the five-time World Series champ’s Mariano Rivera Foundation has provided educational and support services to youths from impoverished families.
