First Lady of the United States Melania Trump descended from her military plane at Lilongwe International Airport in Malawi yesterday and was all smiles as usual. However, a major wardrobe malfunction was averted as she could have quite easily revealed more than she had bargained for, considering the billowing fabric of the shirtdress which has a slight slit.

As she embarked from her jet, Melania kept one hand close to her leg in order to reduce the risk of a wardrobe malfunction. Featuring buttons down its center, the item also had two pocket-styled sections at her bust area. With the help of a brown belt, it clinched at her waist. Melania completed the look with a pair of brown high heels.

During her week-long trip to Africa, the 48-year-old is making a one-day visit to the country.



 

Today, Melania visited an elephant orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, and was spotted sporting a white shirt and khaki trousers. During her visit, an elephant she was greeting allegedly nudged her, prompting a secret service agent to immediately step to her side, Time reported. The former model, who is married to President Donald Trump, was seen donning a beige-toned dress yesterday. Cut to just below her knees, the outfit featured a draped design. You can watch the video here

The Slovenian bombshell proceeded to walk down as school children waited on the airfield beside a red carpet to greet her. She wore her golden brown locks loose around her shoulders, looking strikingly gorgeous.

Observers speculated that her outfit of the day could have been designed by Ralph Lauren and priced at around £1,530 ($1,990). Edward Barsamian, the Style Editor for Vogue.com, appeared to offer some insight into her choice of dress. He suggested that Melania could have opted for a similar version of a shirtdress featured on the renowned designer's website and attached a snap of her arrival on Twitter.

Before posting a link to a shimmering silver variant, Barsamian wrote: “[I] believe @FLOTUS is wearing an @RalphLauren shirtdress for arrival in Malawi. #FLOTUSinAfrica2018 metallic version available here."

The style-icon donned a pair of beige cigarette trousers and a Veronica Beard military jacket worth around £460 ($595) on Wednesday. The recycled selection was previously worn by her in September last year. She teamed up the look with a pair of snakeskin-style-flats, Express UK reports.
