Melania Trump Almost Recreates Marilyn Monroe's Iconic Scene in an Airy Dress in Japan (Video)

US First Lady Melania Trump had a Marilyn Monroe moment while stepping out of an airplane in Japan.

The former model managed to handle the near-wardrobe malfunction moment with grace, as shown in a video shared on YouTube.

Melania has been scrutinized heavily since becoming the First Lady, particularly over her fashion choices at public outings.

The First Couple were climbing down the stairs from their plane when gusts of wind blew, prompting Melania to place a hand on the front of her thigh, to keep the skirt of her $2,615 Calvin Klein dress from billowing out.

The attention-grabbing dress is printed with postcards from the sunny beaches of the West Coast.

Melania and US President Donald Trump are spending four days in Japan as guests of the new Emperor Naruhito.

BUSY SCHEDULE IN JAPAN

Among their activities in the country was a visit to the graveside of fallen soldiers.

Melania also went to a Tokyo museum while her husband played golf with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

For the visit, the Slovenian-born first lady sported a Loro Piana jumpsuit, with her waist cinched in with chunky belt adorned with an oversized buckle.

The couple also watched a sumo match at the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament at Ryogoku Kokigikan Sumo Hall in Tokyo.

Melania’s style looked on point as she wore an elegant pink dress in an asymmetrical style.

The dress featured a wrap-around effect at the bodice while the sleeves fell just off her shoulders.

UNDER DEEP SCRUTINY

Melania has been scrutinized heavily since becoming the First Lady, particularly over her fashion choices at public outings.

She once came under fire after she was spotted wearing a controversial jacket while visiting child immigrants.

Melania traveled to the Mexico border for a surprise visit to children who were forcefully separated from their families. 

She wore a Zara jacket for the occasion, with the slogan “I really don't care, do u” emblazoned on the back. It was deemed “a bizarre and insensitive choice.”
