President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, displayed the NY glamour of their family Friday night in a uniquely American tableau as they all swayed on stage before a backdrop of red, white and blue.

Despite looking catatonic, First Lady Melania Trump took some strategic first steps in her new role by wearing a gown by emerging French-American designer Hervé Pierre for her appearance at the official inauguration receptions.

About halfway through, Pence and his wife and Trump's extended family, including his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, joined them on stage.

"My number one supporter, Melania", Trump told the audience before their dance.

She said, "Thank you all for your service". However, it fitted her perfectly, so flawless in fact all she could do was gently sway to the rendition of Frank Sinatra's My Way for the couple's first dance as POTUS and FLOTUS at the Liberty Ball.

On Friday, the first two inaugural balls will host musical guests such as Sam Moore, Tim Rushlow and His Big Band, Silhouettes, the Rockettes, Pelican 212, the Piano Guys, Circus 1903, Cache Olson, Lexi Walker and Erin Boheme, according toUSA Today. The celebrities present at the ball included Caitlyn Jenner, Sam Moore and others. "I'm honored to be your first lady". He's also responsible for styling Trump's powder-blue morning look, so it looks like we've got a stylist-in-chief on our hands.
