The first lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, took a page out of Kate Middleton’s book and sported a safari inspired outfit as she jetted off to Africa for her first solo international trip. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, recently stepped out for her first royal engagement after returning from maternity leave, sporting a khaki-inspired outfit which Melania seems to have taken inspiration from.
48-year-old Melania was seen at the Cape Coast Castle in West Africa and she sported a brown blouse which had mid-length sleeves. She accompanied the outfit with a pair of beige cigarette trousers and finished off her look with a pair of muted-toned snakeskin style shoes. Before she entered the castle, she was given permission from the chief of the region in an elaborate and colorful ceremony.
Even though Melania had shown up in her signature heels for the event, she went on to swap her shoes for practical flats as she was touring the castle. According to CNN’s Kate Bennett, Melania said, “This is a very special place. I will never forget the incredible experience and the stories that I heard from the gentleman … what happened so many years ago, it’s really a tragedy”. She also signed a visitors book and thanked the hosts for their warm and heartfelt welcome.
On the visit, Melania was seen walking with Kwesi Essel-Blankson, who is the museum educator, and the pair was seen talking away as Melania learned about the history of the setting. Today is the second day of Melania’s week-long visit to Africa, as she promotes her ‘Be Best’ campaign. The campaign is funded by the U.S. government foreign aid fund and its main aim is to educate and spread awareness on the dangers of drug abuse and cyberbullying.
Yesterday, the first lady was seen sporting an outfit reportedly worth more than £2,000 as she landed in Ghana. As she stepped off the airplane at the Kotoka International Airport in Ghana, Melania sported a Celine dress. The dress sells at an estimated £1,541 and had a mid-length cut and was made up of red and white stripes. She completed the outfit with a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes which are believed to cost £482.
