Hope Hicks, Melania Trump bring fashion a-game to Japanese state dinner

First Lady Melania Trump and White House Communications Director Hope Hicks each held their own in high fashion during a Japanese state dinner in Tokyo Monday night, while the pair are overseas with President Donald Trump on his 12-day trip through Asia.

Melania brought the drama when she donned a monochromatic, vibrant red Valentino draped silk gown with matching Manolo Blahnik stilettos while her usually tousled hair was fanned into an updo to show off diamond earrings.

The dress featured a round neck and cap sleeves, and matching red stilettos with pointed toes completed the outfit.

Melania Trump and President Donald Trump are currently on a five-country Asian tour, with Japan being their first stop.

The pair touched down in Japan late Saturday ahead of their 13-day trek.

Since then, Donald is said to have formed a strong bond with the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, as the pair discussed trade in an informal setting on a golf course on Sunday.

After meeting with the Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko earlier today, Melania and Donald headed to the state dinner with Shinzo Abe at Akasaka Palace.

Alongside Melania, Hope Hicks shined through a crowd of men in suits by wearing a menswear-inspired tuxedo with her caramel-toned wavy hair draping over one side of the androgynous ensemble. For a touch of girlishness, Hope loaded on mascara, a sharp eyebrow, and punchy-pink lipstick.
