After a day filled with tension and fissures in the powerful NATO military alliance, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump gabbed with their counterparts at a cocktail party with a jazz band.
The pair arrived at a cocktail party with fellow world leaders and spouses at Cinquantenaire, a park designed in the 19th century.
The first lady wore a white floral pattern Neiman Marcus dress, changing out of a navy blue dress by Belgian designer Raf Simmons for Calvin Klein.

Trump could be seen gesticulating as he spoke with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, whom he complimented earlier in the day for being sympatico with his pitch for greater defense contributions.
He also chatted with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, following their bilateral meeting. That followed the harangue he delivered against Germany at a breakfast meeting at the start of the summit when she wasn't present.

The event was held at the Art and History Museum, and people were able to mingle outdoors. En route, they passed a triumphal arch.
Later it fell to Melania to mingle with Merkel. The two spoke at length. The first lady, a former Slovenian model, speaks German among other languages.
Waiters carried trays with white wine, but neither Trump nor the first lady took a drink at the start of the party. Trump doesn't drink alcohol.
