Melania Trump’s Wardrobe In Asia

During the 11-day trip through Asia, Melania Trump was dressed top to bottom in designer clothes from a Fendi coat to Christian Louboutin shoes.

While her wardrobe was devoid of any Asian designers, Melania stepped out in an array of classic pieces that held true to her love of structured silhouettes.

The American First Lady started the tour bundled up in a thick coat in Tokyo, but had made a less conservative fashion choice by the time she got to their second stop, Seoul, choosing to wear a sheer dress to a state dinner.


Melania arrived in Tokyo wearing a striped wool Fendi coat embellished with flowers. She paired it with nude Manolo Blahnik heels. In this ensemble, her activities included visiting luxury pearl retailer Mikimoto’s flagship Ginza store with prime minister Shinzo Abe’s wife Akie to learn about Japanese pearl cultivation.

For dinner with the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife at Ginza Ukai Tei restaurant, she wore a mid-length black coat and a black sash. She opted for a conservative look – a belted coat dress from couturier Hervé Pierre, the designer of her inaugural gown.

To meet Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko at Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, as well as to attend a calligraphy class at an elementary school, she wore a navy Dior dress with flowing sleeves and a flared mid-length skirt. This time she opted for an up-do.

Clad in a vivid red gown, she attended a state dinner hosted by Prime Minister Abe. The long caped silk dress was a simple, yet striking look by Valentino.

Arriving in Seoul, she wore a dark burgundy coat with exaggerated sleeves and a zip detail by Spanish brand Delpozo, paired with blue pumps. In this outfit, she also visited the presidential Blue House and interacted with South Korean school children at the American ambassador’s residence.

For a visit to the Seoul National Cemetery, Melania wore another black coat, this time by Alexander McQueen. She accessorised it with a belt stylishly knotted at the waist.

She wore yet another black coat when she disembarked from Air Force One in Beijing on Wednesday (Nov 8) , making this her go-to play-it-safe dress code. Pairing the coat with black heels, she took a tour of the Forbidden City.

At a welcome ceremony at the Great Hall of the People on Thursday (Nov 9), she stood out on the red carpet in this black Dolce & Gabbana dress with white flowers, which, with its floaty silhouette, made her look especially feminine. A streamlined black coat dress seems to be one of Melania’s favourite looks.

For her most high-profile engagement – a state dinner at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing – the first lady paid homage to her host country with a Chinese-inspired embroidered black dress featuring fur cuffs. The maker of the piece, however, is yet another Italian label: Gucci.

Arriving with her, President Xi Jinping’s wife Peng Liyuan also chose a black dress with a cheongsam collar, but with light, sheer fabrics.


While her husband continued on to Vietnam, she remained in China and capped off her Asia tour on Nov 10 with stops at the Beijing Zoo’s panda enclosure and the Great Wall. Here, she wore a structured black coat draped over a black sweater, and a high-waisted, fitted skirt. She completed the look with a belt featuring intricate laser cuts, nude flats and sunglasses.
