Melania Trump looked chic today as she stepped out in a beige trench coat.
The overgarment was buttoned up and belted to protect the First Lady from the wind.
A blue headscarf, likely to be from Hermes, was wrapped around her head and she wore sunglasses over her eyes.
The mother-of-one held hands with her husband as she walked towards the plane in Louboutin stilettos.
Melania’s outlayer was a £1,564.96 Burberry coat, while her shoes are the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies 100 patent-leather pumps, £495. Silk Hermes scarves cost in the region of £340.
One noted how the First Lady appeared to have been inspired by Her Majesty the Queen in wearing the look.
They wrote: “Is Melania Trump going full-on royal? Cause that silk head scarf look is a Queen Elizabeth II style staple.”
She was also likened to Jackie Kennedy by fans on Instagram. One wrote: “I was going to mention Jackie, scarves and big sunglasses because I saw a post yesterday criticizing Melania w/shades.”
Another said: “Melania Trump is wearing a beige Burberry trench coat, an Hermes scarf, black Christian Louboutin stilettos, and round sunglasses as she departs Ireland today. This looks reminds me of a previous First Lady and fashion icon, Jackie Kennedy.” [sic]
The 60s fashion icon and former First Lady was famous for wearing large sunglasses and headscarves in a similar fashion.
It came after Melania was criticised for wearing sunglasses at the D-Day commemoration in France.
One Twitter user wrote: “Why is Melania wearing sunglasses? It’s always about her looks. How disrespectful. The woman just has no class.”
Another said: “Take off you Jackie O sunglasses at Normandy. Be respectful as you are not at a fashion show.” [sic]
At D-Day Melania Trump wore black to show her respect for those who lost their life in conflict.
Melania’s cost was simple, single-breasted, with a v-neck and lapels.
She wore patent shoes with silver buckles on the toes.
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka last year.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
