Melania Trump wears Gucci cheongsam for China state dinner

  • The couple will be treated to a tour of the famed Forbidden City as part of their visit

But America's first lady did finally bow to practicality - walking the Great Wall of China in pointy heels would've been no joke, so she donned a pair of sensible flats for the trip, during the Trumps' 12-day state visit to Asia. After the ceremony, Mrs. Trump and Madame Peng toured Banchang Primary School to participate in a variety of classes, including Peking opera, astronomy, fashion and design, calligraphy, cooking, and Chinese architecture. Later, she greeted a group of schoolchildren and handed over stuffed toy eagles to them.

With that, Trump climbed aboard a rattling cable auto for the steep ride up to the top of a mountain, where she posed for pictures in front of the assembled press, accepted a ceremonial scroll, and then turned and walked, alone, along the Great Wall of China.

In reflecting on her time as first lady, Melania Trump told CNN: "Well, it's my honor to be a first lady of the United States, and it was a very busy year".




We'd suggest avoiding these areas until Trump's visit ends Friday (November 10). "It's exciting, as well", she added. Several other first ladies have visited the giant pandas in Bejing, engaging in what is fondly dubbed "panda diplomacy", including Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama.

She also signed a panda print during the visit, writing: "Thank you to the Beijing Zoo!"

I am leaving China for #APEC2017 in Vietnam.
