Melania Trump, 49, is one of the most photographed women in the world and has access to a wardrobe worth millions. The same can be said of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, who is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful royals in the world. For the first time, the two ladies will meet, as Kate joins other senior members of the Royal Family to greet Melania and Donald Trump for the first day of the official state visit. All eyes will be on what the First Lady and the Duchess are wearing for the occasion.
It is likely that Melania will choose something fitted to show off her impressive model figure.
Formally a supermodel, Melania favours slim fitting dresses and pencil skirts to make the most of her long legs.
She is also rarely seen out of the highest of six inch heels – something caused controversy during her first year as First Lady.
While she sometimes wears her caramel coloured hair up in a sleek chignon, Melania tends to prefer to wear it loosely down over her shoulders.
Surprisingly for a woman of her wealth, Melania is not a fan of ostentatious jewellery, tending to stick to her engagement ring and not much else.
Kate, on the other hand, has access to the best jewellery cabinet in the world, and may well choose to wear something from the Queen’s collection.
Alternatively, she may use the time to promote a British jewellery designer – Kiki McDonough is one of her favourites.
While Melania is sure to wear a very expensive designer outfit, this is not a guarantee from the Duchess, who likes to mix up high street and designer pieces.
As it is a state visit, however, Kate will most likely turn to her favourite couturiers to welcome the President and his wife – and ensure she looks her best.
Emilia Wickstead and Jenny Packham are both designer favourites – as is Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, who designed Kate’s wedding gown.
