What Melania Trump wore her 42nd week as first lady — in Japan, China and more on her Asia trip

As we predicted, we got a whole lot of Melania Trump this week, thanks to her tagging along with her husband on an 12-day trip to Asia.

Frankly, this trip helped us learn a lot about how Trump is using fashion as first lady. While Michelle Obama made a habit of wearing designers from the countries she was visiting abroad — like when she wore Kenzo on a trip to Japan in May 2015 — Trump hasn’t really embraced that approach in Asia, opting to wear her favorite designers instead of exploring what Asian designers have to offer.

She has a style and she’s sticking to it, apparently.

This is what Melania Trump wore this week.

Trump was seen in a brand-new outfit for her Hawaiian exit: a tropical-looking dress with large leaves from the London-based brand Borgo de Nor, a label she had yet to wear as first lady.

Donning nude flats for a flight to Japan, we have to say Trump’s bright-patterned look shocked us — and she continued doing so with her fashion choices throughout her trip.

A shame this look didn’t come from a Chinese designer though, we have to say.
