She has appeared on the cover of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Allure and GQ magazine, but Melania Trump's position as the First Lady of the United States has seen her assume an entirely different role.

As a former model, it was expected that Melania's ascension to the White House would be a very stylish affair. Despite the fact that several designers, including Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford refused to dress her.

However, that hasn't stopped Melania from sporting some perfectly put together outfits during her first year in the White House.

Her designers of choice have ranged from Ralph Lauren, which she wore for her husband's inauguration, to Roksanda and Dolce & Gabbana.

She has even shown a penchant for British designer Erdem, one of the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite brands.

The 47-year-old starting 2018 off on a stylish note by wearing a dazzling pink sequin gown by the brand, which cost a jaw-dropping £3,675.

Meanwhile, her tour wardrobe has also never faltered.

From demure ensembles in Asia, which included a £3,500 Fendi coat and £2,600 Valentino gown, to plenty of bold choices in Tokyo.

We wonder what she has in store for year two.
