Melania Trump takes style risk in shimmery Monique Lhullier gown

Melania Trump is giving us another reason to love sparkles!

The first lady donned a silver and gray sparkling Monique Lhullier gown for the White House Historical Association dinner over the weekend. The semi-sheer ensemble may have to be one of Melania's most daring looks as first lady -- and we're totally loving her style risk!

Melania was all smiles in the show-stopping number, which featured a floor-length slip-style dress underneath a sequined chiffon overlay. The Monique Lhullier gown doesn't come cheap however -- the dazzling look retails for nearly $8,000!

The brunette beauty polished off the look with a thin belt, her hair in a wavy style and minimal jewelry. Meanwhile, President Trump rocked a black tuxedo with a white button-down shirt underneath.

Of course, Melania has proven throughout her tenure as first lady that she knows how to dress up for any big occasion. The 47-year-old won over America's hearts when she wowed in pure white for the Inaugural Ball earlier this year. She also stunned in a soft pink J. Mendel gown at Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's wedding earlier this summer, potentially stealing the spotlight from the bride!
