Melania Trump relies on her fashion favorites for United Kingdom visit

Melania boarded Air Force One with a Gucci silk dress with Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and Statue of Liberty prints.

Thousands protested during Mr. Trump's last visit to Britain, and similar demonstrations are widely expected this week.

As is the case with the US First Lady on most state visits, Melania Trump is the focus of fashionistas' attention. The pomp of this United Kingdom visit makes it a massively valuable photo opportunity for the Trumps, as they position themselves to launch a bid for a second term, and Melania's fashion choices are created to make the most of this.

Over the next two days, the pair will mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

They will receive a ceremonial welcome at the Buckingham Palace garden, and later on they will visit Westminster Abbey to lay a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

On June 3, the Queen gave the Trumps a tour of the Royal Collection, one of the largest collections of art and other objects in the world.

Samsung announces two new laptops with brand-new, eye-catching design
To me, this spec sheet reads great for the 13-incher - it's basically a Windows-based, 13-inch MacBook Pro with more ports. The former has diamond-cut edges like those of the MacBook, as well as a comparative display with bezels almost as narrow.

She wore a collared shirt dress by Gucci, known as the city print shirt dress, which retails at £2,650 on luxury fashion retail website Farfetch.

Ivanka Trump engaged in a more subtle form of sartorial diplomacy for her first appearance, in a suit by Alessandra Rich, an Italian-born but London-based designer who is a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge. She spent the day immersing herself in Japanese traditional culture with the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Akie Abe.

The Trump version of glamour retains a gold-plated aesthetic redolent of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the ultimate royal pin-up of that era, Princess Diana, was conjured up by Melania's white suit.

The dress, at mid-calf length and with a slightly flared style, features an embroidered floral design that runs diagonally down the front from right to left.

The vibrant frock was elegantly paired with a pair of nude stiletto heels.
