Melania Trump made an effort to win over the UK public with her choice of dress on Friday.

The First Lady, 48, stepped out in a statement dress by British designer Victoria Beckham this morning.

The structured striped dress  hugged Mrs Trump's curves as she arrived at the Royal Hospital Chelsea to meet the Chelsea Pensioners and local schoolchildren.

She paired the pricey piece with a pair of patent nude heels for her morning engagement alongside Philip May while their spouses spend the morning together.

And while glamorous they may be, Melania was surely reluctant that she didn't opt for a more practical pair of shoes as she joined the Chelsea Pensioners and Mr May for a game of bowls on the green.

Mrs Trump is embarking on her own public appearance as the President and Theresa May carry out engagements ahead of a working lunch at Chequers.

Mr and Mrs Trump will later reunite to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Mrs Trump was greeted by Mr May when she stepped out of her vehicle at the Royal Hospital London today.

On arrival she also met Lieutenant Colonel Nicky Mott, hospital CEO Gary Lashko and Chelsea pensioners John Riley, Alan Collins and Marjorie Cole.

The hospital was founded as a retirement home for soldiers by King Charles II in 1682, and the Chelsea pensioners are famous for their distinctive scarlet coats.
