President and Melania Trump left on Friday for their first overseas trip and, as part of the three-country tour, will visit Saudi Arabia, where women are expected to dress conservatively and keep their heads covered.

Of course [Melania] will be joining her husband for the entire trip, and yes, she will be making several public appearances,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told the Washington Examiner last week. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner will also be joining the first couple on the trip.

In Saudi Arabia, the former-model-turned-FLOTUS may have to tone down her high-end wardrobe, which includes spiky stilettos, colorful patterns, and clothes by American designers whose fashion shows are banned in the country. She may also have to adhere to the country’s strict dress code for women: long sleeves, ankle-length dresses (no pants), and headscarves.

 

Russian state media reported that Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that Melania is welcome to wear “any style in clothing” in Saudi Arabia.
