US presidential couple, Donald and Melania Trump, undertook a four-day state visit to Tokyo, Japan on Friday and the trip proved the perfect opportunity for the First Lady to really flex her sartorial muscles.
The 49-year-old made sure to pack a number of high fashion outfits and delivered an estimated £10,000 worth of headline-worthy dresses in the past 48 hours alone.
To kick-start the fashionable proceedings, Trump wore a Calvin Klein shirt dress emblazoned with old postcards of the American West on the flight out - a not-so-subtle tribute to US culture - which retails at $3,900 (approximately £3,079).
To finish the breezy ensemble, she wore a pair of navy Christian Louboutin pumps.
Further cementing her status as a global fashion muse, Trump chose a £5,847 Carolina Herrera midi dress for an outing with the prime minister’s wife Akie Abe on Sunday.

But it was Trump’s evening look that sparked a debate online.

For a lavish banquet at the Imperial Palace come evening, Trump decided to fly the US flag in a £3,500 feather-emblazoned dress by American designer J. Mendel.
Further proving the ‘Melania Effect’ is very real, the ensemble soon garnered sell-out status with a number of social media users praising the look.

It looks like Melania’s dress and shoes colour are Japanese flag 🇯🇵 colour. Very elegant. Trump becomes the first world leader to meet Japan’s new emperor Naruhito https://t.co/JoFuP4EOvN— furball (@furball1868) May 28, 2019
I do love this dress by Carolina Herrera worn by first lady Melania Trump in Japan. Plus I think this postcard dress by Calvin Klein is so cute, crisp and summery looking. Perfect dress to wear leaving on the trip to Japan. #MelaniaTrump #firstlady pic.twitter.com/0HiT8QOz16— Karen Callahan (@CallahanKaren) May 27, 2019
She sure knows how to dress with elegance and respect for the occasion. Hollywood should watch and learn.— Lynda mathews (@Lyndamathews25) May 28, 2019
While others were less than impressed with the amount of money forked out for the dress.
That dress alone could probably house some homeless vets.— Tosia (@SpryWit) May 28, 2019
But the fashion doesn’t stop there, as Trump also made sure to pack a punchy Dries Van Noten coat for the flight home.
In case you needed further evidence on her fashion know-how, it was plucked from the SS19 collection and is currently priced at £1,000.
A pair of neon heels finished the ensemble and subsequently ticked yet another trend from the SS19 list.
