White House Easter Egg Roll: What first ladies have worn in recent years


With Easter upon us, that can only mean one thing -- the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The tradition dates back to 1878 under the administration of President Hayes.

First lady Melania Trump will host the 140th annual event this year on Monday, April 2nd, on the South Lawn of the White House. While the event is truly for the kiddos, the spotlight has been put on the first ladies who have played host through the years and their outfits.

While we saw former FLOTUS' such as Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush opt for pantsuits in springtime-fresh colors, Michelle Obama bucked the trend when she stepped out in a yellow-and-grey Tracey Reese dress in 2011. And while we would've loved to see Michelle rock more dresses for the annual event, it was the only time she wore a sundress.

In other years, she opted for trousers matched with sweaters and blouses from budget-friendly brands like J.Crew and Talbots. In 2015, Michelle bust a move to Bruno Mars' hit song "Uptown Funk" so it's no surprise she opted for a more dance-friendly ensemble instead of a dress.

During Melania's first White House Easter Egg Roll, she also bucked the trend and took our breath away in a pale pink sleeveless tea-length dress by Herve Pierre, and matching pointed pink flats. The first lady has turned to the designer many times for custom pieces, including her inauguration ball gown and that elegant green shift dress she wore to meet Queen Rania of Jordan, so we wouldn't be surprised if she stepped out for Monday's festivities with a custom creation from Herve Pierre.
