Melania Trump’s Style Excursion Through Foreign Countries

By  |  0 Comments

How much do you really know about the first lady, Melania Trump? Sure, we know everything about her husband, Mr. President, and can never seem to get his name out of our mouths. But other than him, there is not much word about his superior looking wife. But with her latest step up in wardrobe selection, soon people in the fashion world will be hearing a lot about her.

With all the controversy surrounding Donald Trump, many designers have protested in creating any looks for the Trump family. Luckily, there are some designers who have not brought politics into fashion and agree to make outfits for the family.

In the Trumps latest travels, the first lady and President journeyed to five different countries in nine days, which meant a lot of outfits had to be worn. Melanie was seen and photographed in over a dozen different looks throughout their excursion. Donald does much of the talking on the trips, so Mrs. Trump made most of her contributions by standing next to him and looking good. They went from Saudi Arabia throughout Israel to Italy, Brussels and Sicily.

Her looks ranged from all different spectrums of fashion; from black jumpsuits, to coat dresses, shirt dresses, suits, and even lace cocktail dresses. “Ambivalence and armor” are what people are calling all her different looks of the trip.

While traveling to each country she made sure that the outfits she chose were appropriate for the particular country. In Saudi Arabia, she chose a more modest look and was fully covered. For Vatican City, she went for a darker look and then for the resort town of Taormina in Sicily she chose brighter spring like outfits.

While visiting the pope in Vatican, she chose to wear a veil and be more traditional. But to people’s surprise, she went veil-less in Saudi Arabia. Most would assume she should have one on for both of the visits and not chose one. Many people seemed to have a problem with her only wearing a veil for one of the trips, but if you look at the past Michelle Obama did the same thing in 2009.

Just as her looks ranged in style, the designers she chose to wear also ranged. Most first ladies of the past would use this trip – having so many public appearances – to promote a home designer. She chose to wear multiple looks of designers such as Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana as well as an assortment of other names. She did choose to wear all American designers, but there was just so many that no one could keep track of them all.

The only connections that could be found between any of the first lady’s wardrobe choices were that she stuck to a neutral pallet with a militaristic aspect. She favored wide cinched belts on jackets, straight skirts, sharp power shoulders, and outfits with lots of buttons. She always seemed to be buttoned up and chose to wear clothing that as appropriate and not too short. With all her outfits most of her skin was completely covered up.

She got many critics attention when she chose to wear the veil for only her visit to Vatican and not to Saudi Arabia, but her lasting impression on style critics is all about her ready-for-battle styles. But what exact battle was she gearing up for? Many place bets that her new found modest style comes from insecurity of her husband’s critics and the prying eye of the outside world.

Pictures from her nine-day travels with her husband are posted all over the web with many people commenting on each individual look. This could be a new revolution for Melania Trump to get more people focused on her for another reason besides her husband.

Lover of all things fashion from day one. While everyone else was reading long novels you could catch me browsing through the style portion of any magazine. I'm a reality show junkie in all forms and will endlessly watch The Food Network while shamelessly throwing in some reruns of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
