For their send-off, Melania was seen wearing an all-black ensemble consisting of a cropped Chanel jacket adorned with gold buttons and a Dolce and Gabbana dress. She completed the look with Christian Louboutin heels and a Hermès Birkin bag.
The first lady also kept a pair of dark shades on as the couple addressed the nation before their departure to President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Fittingly, Melania Trump departs her role as first lady of the United States in all black and her favorite brands -- not a single American name among them: Jacket by Chanel; dress by Dolce & Gabbana; shoes by Christian Louboutin. pic.twitter.com/vLxEqOYmZX— Vanessa Friedman (@VVFriedman) January 20, 2021
“Being your first lady was my greatest honor, thank you for your love and support,” Melania said in a speech on Inauguration Day. "You will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, God bless your families and God bless this beautiful nation."
Neither Melania nor President Trump wore protective face masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The couple will also not be attending today's inauguration ceremony for President-elect Joe Biden.
