First Lady Melania Trump donned a black outfit with a wide gold belt as she accompanied her husband to Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip.

What looked from afar like a modest and long black dress was actually a pantsuit, some photos of the trip revealed.

According to Fox News, “The first lady wore long sleeves and pants in keeping with the strict dress code that Saudi Arabia enforces for its female citizens but she did not cover her head.”

The network noted that Donald Trump had once criticized Michelle Obama for not wearing a headscarf on a 2015 Saudi Arabian trip.

According to the New York Daily News, the First Couple was greeted at the King Khalid International Airport in the Saudi Arabian capital city of Riyadh. The Daily News noted that “covering one’s head isn’t required for foreigners.”

Trump is on a five-country multi-day foreign trip. The White House has released a detailed description of FLOTUS’ itinerary.

“The First Lady will join her husband President Donald J. Trump on an eight-day, five-stop trek to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Israel, Rome, Brussels, and Sicily, returning to Washington, DC, on Saturday, May 27, 2017,” the White House announced.

Melania will participate in some events on her own, and she plans to focus on military families.

“The First Lady will join her husband throughout each day, but will also participate in many of her own events. In the latter part of the trip, Mrs. Trump will attend spousal programs at the NATO and G-7 summits. She will conclude the trip by delivering remarks to United States military personnel and families in Italy,” the White House said.
