Melania's long legs steal the spotlight in Africa as she dons a $2,000 Celine dress
Melania Trump dazzles in Ghana on the first leg of her African trip.
The First Lady of the United States of America Melania Trump is on her first official visit abroad on her own.
The First Lady is visiting four African countries where she will be working towards a project aimed at promoting nutrition in children, which is supported by funding from the US government's foreign aid organization, USAid.
According to BBC News, though Melania will be visiting Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and Egypt as a goodwill ambassador for children's health and education, what is making headlines is her beautiful wardrobe.

"She is interested in Africa because she has never been before and knows that each country will have its own unique history and culture."

FIRST LEG OF THE JOURNEY: GHANA
Melania Trump was greeted at the airport on her arrival in Ghana by traditional dancers and drummers, and Ghana's First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo.
Public reaction to the First Lady's presence has been low key, which is attributed to President Donald Trump's description of African nations as "shitholes" in February.
BEAUTIFUL AS EVER IN A STUNNING CELINE FROCK
Fans of the First Lady's impeccable fashion sense and inimitable style were delighted to see her step off the plane into the African heat wearing a lovely Celine dress boldly striped in burgundy and white. The dress had 3/4 sleeves and was cut just below the knee, showing off her long, perfect legs. Melania paired the dress with a pair of elegant ivory-colored pumps.
MELANIA'S FIRST VISIT WAS TO A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
The First Lady started off her visit in the Ghana capital Accra by visiting a children's hospital where she watched babies being weighed as part of the campaign for adequate nutrition for all children.

MELANIA'S SPECIAL INTEREST IN CHILDREN'S ISSUES
The First Lady, who has maintained herself distant from her husband's administration's political agenda has come out several times in the defense of children's issue, the most relevant probably being her initiative to visit immigrant children separated from their parents in detention on the Texas/Mexico border.
MAKING THE FIGHT AGAINST CYBERBULLYING GLOBAL
Melania will be promoting her own personal project "Be Best," a program designed to fight cyberbully. Cyberbullying is now a serious problem in today's digital age and sees many young people facing ostracism and depression.
IVANKA LOOKED BEAUTIFUL AT UN SUMMIT WHERE SHE CHANNELED MELANIA
The First Daughter Ivanka Trump was seen recently wearing an outfit clearly influenced by her step-mothers low-key elegance.
Ivanka attended the UN General Assembly on September 25, 2018, and clearly channeled the suit Melania had worn to the same event in 2017.
Ivanka wore a double-breasted jacket and a pencil skirt. The grey jacket was beautifully tailored and was adorned with large black buttons for a sophisticated and polished look.
The First Daughter accessorized with discreet and elegant pearl earrings and wore her blonde locks loose to cascade down to her shoulders.
