Melania Trump gets high marks from press during Saudi Arabia trip

During her recent visit to Saudi Arabia, first lady Melania Trump opted to forgo a headscarf, a covering typically worn by the nation's women.

While some have expressed concern about U.S. first ladies not abiding by the custom, it appears the matter is not a pressing one. In fact, citizens and publications alike were highly complimentary about Mrs. Trump's sartorial choices, notes Arab News.

The outfit winning her the greatest positive press was the modest yet stylish black Stella McCartney jumpsuit she wore as she exited Air Force One and throughout her early hours in the country.

It was a loose fitting, long sleeved, and cinched at the waist with a big, gold belt. CNN notes that many likened it to an abaya, the black robe traditionally worn by women in Saudi Arabia.

In fact, one woman proudly posted a side-by-side photo of the first lady's outfit and her own, an abaya also accented with a gold belt.

Mrs. Trump, of course, was not only there flaunt her fashion sense.

Prior to her trip, she said via a statement, "This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and foreign relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives."

While in Saudi Arabia, she did exactly that, visiting a school and an electric service center staffed entirely with women.
