Melania Trump wears $51K Dolce & Gabbana jacket in Sicily

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals will reportedly play an outdoor game at the U.S. Naval Academy next season

Melania Trump's European wardrobe is just as luxurious as the tour she's on.

First lady Melania Trump on her premiere trip overseas with her husband, President Donald Trump, was spotted wearing a $51,500 Dolce & Gabbana "3D flower" jacket from the Italian designer's fall 2017 ready-to-wear line, according to published reports.

The black midi dress incorporated a crew neckline, short sleeves and decorative buttons at the bodice.

She wore the floral jacket with a matching clutch while having lunch with other G7 leaders' spouses at the Elephants Palace, a historic building that houses Sicily's Town Hall.

The dress retails for $3,995 and is now sold out on Modaoperandi.com.

The mother to Barron, one of Donald's five children, participated in several rallies across the country wearing Louboutin's So Kate style throughout his election bid. She and Pope Francis hit it off very well and she was a big hit in Israel.

The coat, worn over a simple beige dress, sells for only $5,000 less than the median USA household income in 2015.

Gabbana has been celebrating each appearance with Instagram posts. Gabbana tagged the photo with hearts and a Thank You to @flotus #melaniatrump. The first U.S. lady arrived in Sicily, accompanying Donald Trump for the G-7 Summit, wearing a classic black dress.

Dolce & Gabbana have made Sicily their fashion muse, so it makes sense that she would turn to them also in Sicily.

While many in the fashion world have refused to dress the First Lady due to her husband's policies, Dolce & Gabbana have embraced the 47-year-old.

While the ready-to-wear label's designs can frequently have four-figure price tags, the Dolce & Gabbana piece she wore in today is substantially pricier - $51,500, to be exact. Her fashion choices so far have been a contrast to her predecessor, who liked to mix designer items with more accessible brands like J. Crew.

Trump ran a populist campaign, promising to raise workers' wages and revive American manufacturing, but never shied away from showing off and talking about his personal wealth. Trump has proposed a $4.1 trillion spending plan that slashes safety net programs for the poor, including food stamps and Medicaid, while spending billions more on the military and protecting retirement programs for the elderly.
