Donald and Melania Trump touched down in London for a three-day UK state visit at 9am on Monday.Setting the sartorial tone for the trip, the First Lady left the White House in a £2,650 Gucci dress emblazoned with motifs of Big Ben and double-decker buses.Ahead of their arrival into Stansted Airport, she changed mid-flight into a £650 pussy-bow blouse by Burberry - another diplomatic nod to British fashion.But the ensemble swiftly divided the Internet with a number of social media users comparing her ensemble to cabin crew uniform.With lunch at Buckingham Palace on the agenda for the afternoon, the 49-year-old made sure to pack a bespoke cream and navy Dolce and Gabbana dress in her suitcase.In a final bid to win over the Queen, she finished the look with a bespoke Hervé Pierre hat - the perfect regal accessory.On Tuesday evening, she chose a £5,610 Givenchy gown, interestingly the Duchess of Sussex’s go-to label, for the couple’s final evening in London.

The line between fashion and politics has become more blurred over the years.In 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri became the first female artistic director at Dior, and her debut collection centered on female empowerment for this historic moment at the storied fashion house. In celebration, she designed a T-shirt that said, “We Should All Be Feminists.”In 2017, shortly after the U.S. presidential election the previous November, designers continued to showcase their political stances through fashion. During designer Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2017 show, he had models Bella Hadid and Candice Huffine walk down the runway wearing shirts that read, “The Future Is Female,” “Our Minds Our Bodies Our Power,” and “Nevertheless, She Persisted.” Celebrity favorite designer Tom Ford, known for his glitzy old Hollywood designs, debuted a chain handbag on his catwalk that said “Pussy Power,” alluding to the pink pussy hats worn during the Women’s March in January 2017.Political statements have also reached far outside the traditional “big four” fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris). During Seoul Fashion Week in March earlier this year, Miss Gee Collection debuted two sweaters emblazoned with the words “#MeToo” and “Speak Up” in bold crimson letters in reference to the #MeToo movement that has swept around the globe.This season is no different. New York Fashion Week designers continue to use their catwalk shows to take political stands.
