Melania Trump became the US First Lady since Donald Trump was inaugurated as President in 2017. In the role, the former model has attended official events and launched the Be Best campaign. However, she has become more conservative and toned down in some ways.
The First Lady appears to take her style seriously and has been snapped in lots of beautiful designer looks.
She was spotted in outfits last year that totalled an estimated £193,694.
However, her style has notably shifted since she entered the White House, stylist Naina Singla explained.
Analysing pictures of Melania before and after she became First Lady, it appeared her style has become more formal.
Naina told Express.co.uk: “Melania Trump’s style has evolved a lot since she has become First Lady.
“Her style is more refined, elegant, and polished; even though it’s not super conservative, it is more conservative compared to what she wore in years past.”
Her palette appeared to be more conservative as she chooses neutral colours.
“In terms of colours, Melania loves white and black, monochromes, and vibrant colours,” Naina added.
“She loves wearing sheath dresses and is often seen belting her looks to accentuate her waistline.”
This contrasts from the outfits Melania wore before the election, Naina explained.
Naina said: “In comparison to former First Lady Michelle Obama, who supported less well-known designers from diverse backgrounds, Melania’s fashion choices are more expensive and she chooses more established designers like Burberry, Ralph Lauren, and Dior.
“Melania has repeatedly stated that she wishes the media would focus less on her outfits and more on the work she is doing.
“But it could be argued that she could use her fashion choices to her advantage and to promote various causes.”
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka last year.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
