Melania Trump, 50, may now be the First Lady of the United States, but before entering the world of politics she was best known for her successful modelling career. Though Melania is no longer on the catwalks, she hasn’t left the world of fashion behind thanks to her designer wardrobe. The First Lady regularly steps out in chic outfits that show off her slender supermodel figure.
Melania now works alongside her husband, President Donald Trump, at the White House, but the Slovenian-born former model still has an impressive fashion collection.
Yesterday the First Lady looked chic as she hosted a roundtable discussion on child welfare.
Sharing photos from the event on her Instagram, Melania wrote: “Thanks to @SecAzar, @GovMikeDeWine, @GovChrisSununu & other leaders for joining our roundtable today on strengthening our child welfare system. We must confront the challenges & impacts for the vulnerable children in the foster care system & protect the well-being of all youth.”
The various photos showed Melania concentrating and talking from the head of the table.

However it was Melania’s flawless blow-dry and expensive accessories that stood out from the photos.
In one of the snaps, next to Melania’s feet is what looks like a Hermes Birkin bag – the most expensive handbags in the world.
Melania has previously made headlines with her collection of the iconic bags, having appeared with a number of them in different colours in recent years.
The Birkin bags were named after the actress and singer Jane Birkin, and are known as one of the most exclusive accessories in the fashion industry.
The cheapest Birkin bags cost in the region of £14,000, with some reaching up to hundreds of thousands of pounds.
In fact, the most expensive Birkin bag ever sold, called the White Himalaya Birkin, was sold for £287,403.99.
It was made from Niloticus crocodile, and had more than 240 diamonds on its 18-karat-gold hardware.
Melania has previously been spotted with bags from the luxurious brand in tan, black and black crocodile leather.
InStyle reported in 2018 that the First Lady had at least six of the exclusive bags, with a worth totalling at least £90,000.
However, the bags have been known to be resold second hand for double the price, as they are so hard to get your hands on.
The brand only works with VIPs, as Hermès is famously selective about who can purchase a Birkin bag.
Only celebrities and wealthy clients are chosen to buy the designer accessory – something the First Lady will of course be eligible for given her marriage to the rich President.
It’s even been reported that Hermès will cut clients off if they feel they’ve purchased too many Birkins.
