The First Lady chose the Bush china with the green color palette to complement the spring green and white flowers that will be featured in the State Dining Room. Stealing the show, however was wide-brimmed white hat, designed by Herv Pierre, according to a White House official.

Some of the most lovely and historic pieces in the White House collection have a French provenance - the 18 century gilt mirrored Monroe Plateau, the early 19th century marble-topped table in the Red Room by a French-American cabinetmaker, and the French Blue Room furniture acquired by President Monroe are just a few examples.

The tally does not include Trump, first lady Melania Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron or his wife, Brigitte.

A similar situation had previously arisen between the Donald and Melania on the audience and the press interpreted them as a silent protest of the first lady.

"Is Melania Trump's white hat a symbol of morality like Olivia Pope's?" a third person wondered.

In February 2014, then-President Barack Obama hosted then-French President Francois Hollande for a state dinner and invited a few members of the opposing party, including Republican Rep. Eric Cantor, who was the House Majority Leader at the time.

President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron both wore black tuxedos.

French first lady Brigitte Macron wore a cream full-length gown by Louis Vuitton with long sleeves and gold details.

Kieran said that Twitter has the obligation to protect and safeguard its users' data and privacy. In Belgium, this year, Facebook was ordered to stop collecting user data, by a national court.

Another attendee was Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein, who supported Trump's tax cut bill and earlier this year said the administration "has pleased the business community and other people as well". Luxury goods magnate Bernard Arnault was in attendance, as were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson, KKR co-founder Henry Kravis, 21st Century Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty and Goldman Sachs Executive Vice President John F.W. Rogers.

Macron, who has emerged as Trump's privileged European partner, is urging him on behalf of the Old Continent not to kill the deal.

The industry-minded members in Trump's Cabinet, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, were present, along with economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

The White House reported that she was heavily involved in the planning of Tuesday's state dinner in tribute to Macron, but it's unknown if that extended to the hand maneuvers.

The White House has some extra help in the kitchen for the state dinner honoring the president of France.

Besides the Cezanne exhibit, the White House said they viewed paintings by 19th century American artist Mary Cassatt and the "Ginevra de' Benci", the only painting by Leonardo da Vinci in the Americas. Social media lit up with reactions to the awkward moment.

"G$3 etting some serious Beyoncé Formation vibes from Melania's hat this morning", one person noted.
