Politics may have been first and foremost on the agenda during the US State Visit, but Melania Trump used this trip to the UK to assert herself as the First Lady of fashion.

The 49-year-old has wowed on every public appearance, drawing on fashion powerhouses from Gucci to Dolce and Gabbana to ensure she struck the right tone for each occasion.

From the moment she stepped aboard Air Force One en route to London, wearing a $4,400 (£2,650) Gucci City Print Shirt Dress, it was clear the First Lady was determined to make a good impression.

There was certainly no expense spared, with one outfit, worn on a visit to the Churchill War Rooms, totalling an eye-watering $72,100 (£56,750), largely thanks to a rare Hermes Birkin bag. Her entire week’s wardrobe cost $165,000 (£130,000).

To calculate the total cost, FEMAIL enlisted the help of celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage and Amber Gordon, founder of Tailored Styling, a personal shopper and styling firm which specialises in sourcing and buying luxury goods for high net worth clients. Using their previous experience Lucas and Amber estimated how much some of the more exclusive pieces cost. Other prices were available online. Daily Mail
