This women is fierce in the fashion arena and knows her way around a designer outfit like-no-other.

Let’s face it, the Americans just seem to take power dressing to another level.

Bigger, bolder (but not always better) it’s in their blood.

And Melania, with her modelling credentials, has an innate ability to eclipse everyone else around her with her First Lady style.

Before she’d even boarded Air Force One in Washington Melania had already been praised for wearing a Gucci dress printed with London landmarks Big Ben and Tower Bridge.

The Sh450K (£3,500) long sleeve midi dress also had London buses printed on it.

And when she touched down at London’s Stanstead airport the praise continued when she emerged wearing a Sh83.5K (£650) Burberry pussy bow blouse printed with medals in tribute to D-Day veterans.

Within 12 hours Melania had changed into her third outfit of the day.

For lunch with her majesty at Buckingham Palace she opted for a figure hugging dress by Dolce & Gabbana.

She teamed the white dress with a neat navy collar and matching belt with a wide brimmed hat by Hervé Pierre - which also had a navy trim.

Before Melania’s arrival the milliner had posted a sketch of the bespoke hat on Instagram.
