After attending the State Dinner hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace, it was President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump's turn to host a dinner at Winfield House, where the Ambassador for the United States resides in London. Their guests included Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

For the occasion, the FLOTUS wore one of Meghan Markle's favourite designers: Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, who of course designed the Duchess of Sussex's very famous royal wedding dress.

This particular creation was a red floor-length gown with embroidery along the neckline, and a cape draped over the shoulders. Melania is clearly a fab of minimal designs, as her white Dior gown from the previous gown was equally sleek.

She also wore a white and navy suit on the first day of their tour, which might or might not have been a nod to Princess Diana.

Meghan wasn't present at either dinner, as she is currently on maternity leave, but it's believed she would've avoided going after Trump called her nasty, though he recently denied ever making those comments.

The presidential couple's tour of the UK continues, and they're expected to visit the Republic of Ireland for a further three days.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
