Melania Trump chose a white shirt dress with embroidered floral motifs by Venezuelan fashion designer Carolina Herrera on Day Two of her India visit.

The flowers on the dress have been inspired by the designer's Venezuelan roots, and the outfit costs around ₹1,15,265. 

The cotton-poplin dress featured a collar, and the First Lady added a pop of colour to the outfit with a red belt cinched around her waist.

With her hair worn loose, she completed the look with white pumps.

This is not the first time that Melania chose an outfit by Carolina.

When President Donald Trump met Japan's new emperor Naruhito, Melania opted for a stunning white midi-dress by the same designer.

Priced at $4,290 (approximately ₹3,08,249), the dress had lovely floral embellishments.

The Venezuelan fashion designer, who has always maintained that 'it is an honour for her to dress the First Lady', has dressed former first ladies including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
