Tim Cook, Rupert Murdoch headline Trump's 1st state dinner guest list

A fancy menu and a guest list of big names is what's happening at the White House for Trump's first state dinner. Melania's hand-painted silver-and-gold, crystal-embroidered dress appears to have been adapted from a jumpsuit style that came down the runway in January.

Wednesday morning, Reps. Ted Lieu of California and Ruben Gallego of Arizona sent a letter asking the heads of the White House Communications Agency, the Secret Service and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence several questions about their security protocol for the President's communications.

Among those who have already arrived are Vice President Mike Pence, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Apple CEO Tim Cook and two Winter Olympians who flashed medals on their way into the pre-dinner reception Tuesday.

Melania Trump made headlines earlier Tuesday for wearing an all-white statement hat that social media users said made her look like Beyonce or Scandal'sOlivia Pope, while welcoming the Macrons to the White House and touring a Washington, D.C., museum.

Macron opened a three-day state visit to the US on Monday.

This is the 14th time the White House has hosted France for a state dinner, per the White House Historical Association. Along with that, Hillary Clinton's China is being used for the state dinner.


A tuxedo-clad House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy stopped to tout the "very strong" relationship between the United States and France.

Former National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton is lending his skills to the occasion Tuesday night.

Plus, a clutch of White House staffers are there, including chief of staff John Kelly; Secretary of Defense James Mattis; press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders; and top aide Stephen Miller.

Arriving in a hall adorned with soft white florals and greenery on a trellis, the guests, in black tie attire, passed by reporters and television cameras on their way to the main event. Trump said, "Oui", she spoke "un petit peu" of French. She has thrown herself into planning the state dinner for President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.

Seeing the gown is typically the highlight of a state dinner.

While the 47-year-old made news over the weekend after photos of her sitting next to Obama at Barbara Bush's funeral went viral, the buzz around the First Lady this week centred around her fashion choices.
