  • However, Meleania caused controversy in a jacket which read “”I really don’t care, do you?” on the back.

LATEST UPDATE: Thursday 21 June, 21:16

Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tweeted on behalf of the First Lady today, referencing her choice of jacket.

She wrote: “Today’s visit w the children in Texas impacted @flotus greatly.

“If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids – rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe – we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children. #SheCares #ItsJustAJacket”.

Melania stepped out in an all white outfit today for her official appearance.

However, she caused controversy in a khaki army style jacket worn over her angelic look.

The jacket costs £29 and had the words “I really don’t care, do you?” written on the back.

The choice proved controversial, with many criticising the choice on Twitter for being insensitive.

The First Lady looked unusually casual in white jeans, plus a pair of trainers worth under £40. This was an out-of-character look for the First Lady who is normally seen in heels and skirts.

On her feet, Melania opted for a pair of flat white leather trainers. Her trainers are Adidas Women’s Stan Smith shoes which are a cult favourite.

They cost just £39.98 from the Adidas website – much cheaper than her usual £509 Christian Louboutin heels. 

However, her white jeans were rolled up to show a hint of tanned ankle – a stylish touch.

She also had white cuffs visible beneath her khaki jacket. 

The long sleeved white T-shirt flattered her figure and added simplicity to the look.

She chose to wear a pair of sunglasses over her eyes to partially obscure her face for the cameras.

Her hair was in its usual blowdried style, although it looked a little windswept.

She also wore a second shorter cream jacket under her khaki one.

She wore it buttoned up as she braved the Texas rain under a large black umbrella.

During her visit, Melania shook hands with officials at the US Mexico border.

She also visited the Lutheran Social Services of the South “Upbring New Hope Children’s Centre”.

Earlier this week, Donald and Melania hosted Queen Letizia at the White House.

The two glamorous women were pictured side by side. It was hard to tell who had the tiniest waist as they both wore skinny belts highlighting their slim middles.
