Melania's $3,700 Gucci coat that stole the show during her Finland trip
The former model and current First Lady Melania Trump seems to have been inspired by the style of Duchess Kate Middleton during the recent visit of the President of the United States to the United Kingdom.
Melania, 48, was in Helsinki a few days after visiting England, and one of the dresses she wore at the official appointment caught everyone's attention, generating comparisons with Middleton, according to Express.
On July 16, Melania attended the summit in Finland where the long-awaited meeting between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin took place, dressed in a lemon yellow coat by Gucci valued at $ 3,700, according to Farfetch.
The outfit reminded fashion experts of a look that 36-year-old Middleton, a trend-setter in her homeland, is often seen sporting. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
The knee-long dress coat appeared to float as the First Lady followed her husband at their arrival to the historical meeting, and it reminded some people of the Alexander McQueen designs that the Duchess is so fond of.
The US presidential couple finished their European tour in England and Finland. President Trump’s busy schedule included meetings with Queen Elizabeth II, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

During all of her appearances, the Slovenian-born showed the best of her style and diplomacy, staying away from any major controversies.
Melania’s yellow dress at the summit added a cheerful tone to the mostly cold hues that predominated in the event. It featured long sleeves and was cinched in at the waist by a tie belt that had a butterfly buckle.
She added a few inches to her height by wearing a pair of bright yellow stiletto heels. Her hair was styled straight and down.
As Daily Mail reported, Melania’s butterfly-themed accessory turned out to be perfect for the occasion, as earlier that day she had breakfast with the Finnish President and his wife Jenni Haukio, who wore a butterfly-patterned dress.
‘Enjoyed conversation w the First Lady of Finland today - good conversation about issues facing our nations. Thank you to Jenni Haukio for hosting me!’ Melania captioned a picture along Haukio that she posted to Instagram.
