Melania Trump wears £3.5k dress for dinner in Japan before changing into orange look

Melania Trump was an ethereal dream in a pale gown at a dinner in Japan this weekend.

The former-model attended the event at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Monday as guests of Emperor Naruhito and his wife, Empress Masako.

Melania’s dress was by J.Mendel. The floor-length number was covered in silver feathers and had cape-like sleeves.

On her feet the First Lady wore silver pumps from Christian Louboutin, likely to be the Hot Chick 100 leather pumps, which cost £545.

Melania’s hair was coiffed in pretty waves and she wore minimal make-up.

Just a few hours later Melania and Donald visited Japan’s navy ship Kaga in Yokosuka, Kanagawa.

Dressing in bright hues Melania went for citrus colours with an orange and lemon.

Her coat was printed with a white and orange abstract floral print with a wide white belt around the waist.

She wore a pair of yellow Christian Louboutin pumps, which appeared to be the Yellow Patent Leather So Kate Pointed Toe Pumps, which can be bought for £478 for The Luxury Closet.

Earlier the First Lady looked stunning in a £5,847 white Carolina Herrera dress.

Melania Trump’s Carolina Herrera dress was white with pretty floral embellishment. 

Melania teamed the dress with red stiletto pumps for the welcome ceremony.

She carried no bag and kept jewellery to a minimum, with only her two favourite rings on each hand on display.

On her Twitter account Melania has been paying tribute to her hosts in Japan.

She tweeted last night: “Thank you Mrs. Abe for a wonderful afternoon at Akasaka Palace.”

Melania also thanked the Japanese Prime Minister’s wife for taking her to see an art exhibtion.

She wrote: “A great day exploring Tokyo with Mrs. Abe! Thank you to @teamLab_net exhibits at Mori Bldg Digital Art Museum for a wonderful interactive experience.”

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.
