Melania Trump once again stepped up her fashion game during a state dinner in Beijing on Thursday, donning an ornate Gucci fur trim dress with an ornate pattern reminiscent of traditional Chinese clothing.
The first lady, 47, exuded confidence as she strode in five-inch, baby pink stilettos, which matched the fur lining of her sleeves, next to her Chinese counterpart, Peng Liyuan.
The two first ladies walked in with their husbands, Presidents Trump and Xi, for the occasion held at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People. Melania might have gotten a bit of style inspiration from the actress Margot Robbie, who wore the same Gucci dress at the premiere of The Legend Of Tarzan in June last year.
Earlier on Thursday, the first lady also wowed in the style department in a custom Dolce & Gabbana gown, thought to have cost at least $3,975. She donned the floor-length number during a welcome ceremony also thrown at the Great Hall of the People, and while visiting a primary school with Madame Peng.
Melania happily took up a paintbrush and ink under the watchful eye of the young students at Banchang Primary School. As well as greeting the young students and joining in with some of their lessons, the VIP guests were also treated to a special, cultural performance from students.
Both Melania and Madame Peng were photographed smiling and clapping after the show, surrounded by a group of beaming schoolchildren.
While Melania was clearly in the spotlight during Thursday’s state dinner, Hope has upstaged her on a couple of occasions during President Trump’s trip around Asia.
The duo joined the president in South Korea on Wednesday to listen to his address at the National Assembly in Seoul.
Hope looked notably chic in a grey turtleneck sweater as she sat a few rows behind the mother of one, and just a few feet away from White House senior advisor Jared Kushner.
