First Lady Melania Trump stepped out of the White House on Friday wearing a military-inspired coat to greet Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife, Lucy.

Wearing one of her favorite designers, Mrs. Trump chose a crisp, black and gold Dolce & Gabbana merino-wool blend coat that features gold trim encircling her waist and lapel. Lined in Dolce & Gabbana’s signature leopard print, the coat gives an oceanic vibe (a nod to Australia) with decorative gold buttons, reminiscent of a sea captain’s uniform.

In another nod, the First Lady wore the Dolce & Gabbana coat — which retails for $2,157 at Farfetch — just as the Italian fashion house is set to showcase their Fall-Winter 2018 collection at Milan Fashion Week.

With ocean breeze hair and gold pointed-pumps, Mrs. Trump topped off this sharp look with a regal touch of effortlessness and simplicity.
