Melania Trump, the wife of Donald Trump, wore the conservative dress for an event that took place at the White House. The First Lady recycled the Gabriella Hearst dress that she was first spotted in last year.
The First Lady showed off her slim waist by pairing the outfit with a chunky navy belt.
While she has access to a range of designer clothes, Melania showed off her thrifty side by recycling the timeless look.
Similar designs from the brand are currently on sale for around £1,100.
Melania wore her long hair down and styled into a middle parting with a soft curl.
She opted for her signature make-up look and paired a smokey eye with a nude lip.
The mum-of-one appeared to be taking style inspiration from Kate Middleton, who is well-known for repeating her favourite outfits.
The Duchess of Cambridge has previously worn a chic navy polka dress by Alessandra Rich.
The gown is strikingly similar to Melania’s and the royal also wore it buttoned up to the top.
The sleeveless gown had a drawstring waist with black ties at either side of the torso.
It continued into a full pleated shirt that cut off just above her ankles.
According to reports, the dress was by the fashion house Jason Wu and similar designs cost £600.
She teamed the look with her favourite Manolo Blahnik classic black pumps – costing £515.

Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
