    Donald Trump's State Visit to the UK (49)

    As is the case with the US First Lady on most state visits, Melania Trump is the focus of fashionistas' attention.

    US President Donald Trump and the First Lady have arrived on their state visit to the United Kingdom.

    The always chic Melania Trump looked particularly elegant for her UK trip, as she wore a London-themed gown for her departure.

    The First Lady was seen walking across the White House lawn in a flowing Gucci shirt dress displaying print images of British capital landmarks, such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, with a riot of colours that included scarlet, orange and green.

    The vibrant frock was elegantly paired with a pair of nude stiletto heels.

    The US First Lady landed in the UK having changed into a very stylish and crisp navy blue outfit with pussy-bow blouse, in a nod to iconic British fashion house Burberry.

    Some Twitter users, however, were quick to note the resemblance to a cabin crew outfit.

    ​Subsequently, for her meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, Melania Trump wore a custom white crepe dress with navy details by Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana.

    The hat is a design from her personal designer/wardrobe adviser, Hervé Pierre.

    Twitter was ablaze, with users sharing impressions of the First Lady's attire for the occasion.

    ​Over the years Melania Trump, a former model, has carefully curated her political style, since diplomacy can be tacitly expressed in the garments worn by a First Lady on a state visit abroad.
