First Lady Melania was wrapped up in a gorgeous red and white checkered Gabriela Hearst trench coat to fight off the winter cold as she lit the National Christmas Tree alongside President Donald on the National Mall’s Ellipse on Thursday evening.

Melania pressed the button to light the National Christmas Tree, wearing a Gabriela Hearst trench coat in a giant checkered print with a shade of red that resembled red wine.

The coat was buttoned up and tied shut with a knot — almost as if it were a tightly wrapped Christmas present.
