US first lady Melania Trump isn't giving up her luxurious taste with her relatively new role.

Since marrying US president Donald Trump in 2005, the former model has a well documented taste for the finer things in life, including a wardrobe most would kill for. During 'moving day' at the White House, she was toting a €12,000 Hermes Birkin bag and during the G7 Summit in May, she wore a €50,000 coat by Dolce & Gabbana.

With such a precedent, her choice of ensembles have been in keeping with trademark luxury, including a Delpozo coat for €3,595,  she looked catwalk ready as she explored the Great Wall of China in a high waisted wool skirt, black polo neck and rather practical shoes - a pair of nude Ballalla Nappa Shiny shoes by Christian Louboutin, which retail for €450.

On Thursday night, she wore a China-themed Gucci gown with pink trim cuff at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.
