Melania Trump, 49, appeared for the first time for day two of her state visit to the UK with Donald Trump, 72.The couple posed for pictures outside Number 10 Downing St with outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May, 62 and her husband Philip May, 61. The First Lady looked understated in a camel coat which complemented her caramel hair.

Mum-of-one Melania wore the pale coat dress, which had a large A line skirt, belted at the waist with a black leather belt.

She carried a black crocodile Hermes Birkin bag in her hand, with a pair of black leather gloves seen in the same hand.

The Birkin bag is one of the most sought after in the world, with a long waiting list. Those lucky enough to get to the top of that list then have to fork out tens of thousands of pounds to secure their accessory.

On her feet, Melania opted for Manolo Blahnik court shoes in black.

She kept her makeup simple, opting for pink lipstick and heavy mascara.

The Trumps will spend the day with Mrs May and her husband, after meeting the Royal Family yesterday.

Melania chose a sheer white gown for the state dinner held by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Dior Haute Couture designed the gown and then custom created it for Melania, which the First Lady paired with white opera gloves and a swept up hairstyle.

Earlier in the day, Melania wore a striking white custom-made Dolce & Gabbana dress and statement hat, which was also custom made for her by Hervé Pierre.

Mum-of-one Melania made sure her supermodel figure was on full display, with the white dress fitted close to her body.
