Washington D.C. [United States], November 23 (ANI): Donning a luxurious-yet-environment-friendly Stella McCartney Coat to the long-standing tradition of pardoning turkeys for Thanksgiving, United States first lady Melania Trump didn't play it small as she stepped on the White House lawn.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Melania's decision to opt for a Stella McCartney Coat was one in support of animals.

McCartney, who is an outspoken animal rights activist, has pledged her commitment to cruelty-free products and does not use fur, leather, and feathers in any of her products.

The Stella McCartney Coat is reportedly worth $1,625.

The First Lady paired her floral brocade coat with a leather skirt by her stylist/designer, Herve Pierre.

Meanwhile, in another time-honoured tradition, Melania wore a Calvin Klein plaid coat to welcome the official White House Christmas tree.

According to reports, the coat, which retails for $3,200, is on sale right now for $1,600.

Her red cashmere ribbed turtleneck, which was from Ralph Lauren, is worth $700. She clubbed it with a pair of leather knee-high heeled boots by Victoria Beckham that costs $1,650. (ANI)
