Fashion hounds suspected that First Lady Melania Trump would wear something more conservative than the leather skirt Melania wore, as reported by the Inquisitr, when President Donald Trump and Mrs. Trump left the U.S. en route to their big foreign trip. And Melania didn’t disappoint those fashionistas awaiting photos of Melania’s latest ensemble. As seen in the above photo, President Trump and Melania landed at the Royal Terminal of King Khalid International Airport on Saturday, May 20.
At first blush, it appears that Melania is wearing a long black dress in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the first visit abroad as First Lady Melania and President Trump. However, in photos like those above and below, wherein Melania walks or stands in a certain stance, it can be seen that Melania is wearing a long black jumpsuit with a large gold belt and not a black dress. The black jumpsuit is not fitted, but very flouncy, seemingly more appropriate for the conservative views of the land. The fact that Melania did not wear a headscarf was duly noted by those seeking photos of Melania’s attire.
Whereas Melania’s fitted high-waisted leather skirt and cream sweater with the feminine details, such as ties at the sleeves, won Mrs. Trump raves on Friday from social media, the views about Melania’s choice of a black jumpsuit are still flowing into Twitter and other social media platforms as the photos make the rounds online.

Whereas President Trump and Melania were photographed deplaning Air Force One together, as the Trumps walked down the stairs as a couple, other photos show Melania walking far behind Trump on the red carpet, as seen below. Melania’s arrival at the Royal Terminal of King Khalid International Airport proved that Mrs. Trump chose not to wear a headscarf in the Islamic country, a choice also made by former First Lady Michelle Obama.
With Melania choosing not to wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia, as reported by ABC News, Melania made a bold and controversial choice not to cover her flowing mane, which can be viewed as a sexy thing in some countries. Meanwhile, the publication notes the below tweet from President Trump from 2015, when Mr. Trump criticized Mrs. Obama for not wearing a headscarf.
The following tweet is being re-tweeted aplenty in the wake of Melania choosing to not wear a head scarf in Saudi Arabia, just like Mrs. Obama.

Other photos of President Trump and Melania in Saudi Arabia are being uploaded to the Associated Press image gallery, tagged with the Trump name.
Photos of Melania in Saudi Arabia are also being uploaded to the Getty Images gallery of photos tagged with Melania’s name.
For example, one photo shows Melania with her legs crossed in the black jumpsuit, sitting with President Trump as the Trumps met with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
Another photo shows Saudi King Salman placing The Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud Medal on President Trump at the Royal Court Palace.
Plenty of photos offer a great view of Melania’s black jumpsuit, with lots of photos showing Melania several paces behind President Trump in Saudi Arabia.
The feminine details of Melania’s sleeves on her black jumpsuit can be seen via close-up photos of Mrs. Trump’s attire.
Photos of Michelle Obama with no headscarf in Saudi Arabia, just like Melania
With Melania choosing to not wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia, just like Michelle, photos of Mrs. Obama in Saudi Arabia, hair flouncing fiercely in the wind, are of renewed interest. That photo from January 27, 2015, was captured just two days prior to President Trump’s tweet criticizing Michelle for going without a headscarf.
