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.

While others were less than impressed with the amount of money forked out for the dress.

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.
