Melania Trump’s outfit for the annual White House Fourth of July picnic was as American as it gets. The first lady, who joined President Trump in hosting military families for fireworks and food, wore a floor-length dress by Ralph Lauren costing $3,770. She decorated the look in patriotic red by addition of a red belt at the waist. Photo: Getty

A look at Melania Trump's most talked about First Lady outfits

Whether you agree with her husband’s political stance or not, there is no denying Melania Trump’s global fashion status.

The 48-year-old’s first year at the White House was the perfect opportunity for the First Lady to flex her sartorial muscles, as she has tackled the art of diplomatic dressing with ease.

Although the odds were certainly against her – many designers refused to dress her when Donald Trump was first elected as President of the United States – the former model has gone on to deliver some seriously covetable looks.

Whether she’s disembarking from Air Force One or playing host to some of the world’s biggest political players, Melania certainly knows how to grace the headlines.

From that power-shoulder Emilio Pucci coat to the totally bewildering super-sized hat she donned for Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron’s debut official state visit, these are her most talked about looks to date.
