See every outfit Melania Trump has worn on Donald Trump’s Asia tour so far

From a Fendi coat in Tokyo to a Dolce & Gabbana dress in Beijing, the first lady may not be playing at fashion diplomacy – her travel wardrobe has been devoid of Asian designers – but she certainly knows how to turn on the style

Before departing the White House for Hawaii, the first stop of an 11-day trip that would continue through Asia, Melania Trump wore a blue Emilio Pucci coat and Christian Louboutin shoes.

At the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour, Melania chose a demure white dress from Dior and a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels.

The first lady ditched her usual heels and opted for comfortable Louboutin flats to leave Hawaii for Japan, pairing them with a leaf-printed sundress from Borgo De Nor.

Melania arrived in Tokyo wearing a weather-appropriate flower-embellished Fendi coat and another pair of Manolos.

She opted for a conservative look – a belted coat dress from couturier Hervé Pierre, the designer of her inaugural gown – to meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife.

Clad in a navy belted dress with billowy sleeves, another Dior look, Melania met Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.

She wore a gown in vivid red to attend a dinner in Tokyo – a simple and yet striking look from Italian label Valentino.

For her arrival in Seoul, South Korea, Trump made an adventurous choice: an oversize plum coat dress with billowy sleeves from Spanish brand Delpozo.

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.

For a glamorous dinner in Seoul, the first lady wore a relatively risqué see-through lace dress with sparkly details from New York brand J. Mendel.

A streamlined black coat dress seems to be one of Melania’s favourite looks. She sported another one, by Dolce & Gabbana, for her visit to Beijing, worn with simple black pumps.

How will Melania Trump’s fashion sense shape up against Michelle Obama and China’s Peng Liyuan?

Standing next to a conservatively suited Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, at a welcome ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Melania upped the ante with a lavishly embroidered dress by Dolce & Gabbana.

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.
