Some people speculate that America’s First Lady Melania Trump uses her outfits to make subtle (or not so subtle) statements about her husband, US President Donald Trump’s administration.

Omarosa Manigault Newman wrote in Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, that she believes Melania Trump uses style to “punish” her husband.

But others simply admire her “streamlined glamour”, as designer Michael Kors has described her style.

First ladies’ outfits are not paid for by taxpayers, and designers often offer to dress them for free.

Still, some pieces she has worn are available to buy, even if they are not exactly affordable.

Here are 14 of the first lady’s most expensive looks – with number one being priceless.

14. Manolo Blahnik heels – US$625

The First Lady was criticised for seeming to be out of touch by wearing expensive designer heels to visit the site of a natural disaster.

The Manolo Blahnik shoes retail for US$625 at Neiman Marcus, but are currently sold out.

By the time she disembarked in Texas, she had changed into trainers.

13. Balmain button-down shirt – US$690

Trump welcomed the Boys and Girls Club of Washington into the White House kitchen garden dressed in a tartan cotton button-down shirt.

It’s available on Net-a-Porter for US$690.

Her outfit garnered comparisons to Michelle Obama’s less expensive J. Crew-based gardening outfits that included a US$29.50 shirt and a US$228 jacket.

12. Gucci blouse – US$1,100

Trump wore a pink Gucci pussy bow blouse to the second presidential debate.

Many people wondered if the style choice was related to audio of Donald Trump remarking that he could “grab” women “by the pussy” because “when you’re a star they let you do it” that had leaked a few days earlier.

A campaign spokeswoman said that the similarity was not intentional according to a tweet by Sopan Deb, then of CBS News.

The blouse retails for US$1,100 on Net-a-Porter.

11. Roksanda dress – US$2,865

For her speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump wore a white Roksanda “Margot” dress which is advertised as “a beautiful option for the modern bride” with US$675 Christian Louboutin heels.

The dress sold out less than an hour after her speech.

It currently retails on Net-a-Porter for US$1,646.10, but 2016 reports price the dress at US$2,190.

Trump walked down the steps of Air Force One in Helsinki, Finland, in an Isuode driving coat with leather details, which costs US$3,995.

6. J. Mendel dress – US$6,990

After the backlash of Trump’s “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket, which she wore on a visit to Texas to visit immigrant children (her spokeswoman said “There’s no hidden message”), she opted for a pale yellow pleated chiffon dress from J. Mendel during her and President Trump’s first official visit to the UK.

The gown is no longer available, but was priced at US$6,990, according to USA TODAY.
