Melania Trump Arrives in Ghana Wearing Heels, Changes Into Flats to Visit Baby Clinic

Melania Trump arrived in Ghana today, marking the start of her first major solo international trip as first lady, during which she’ll promote the well-being of children and her Be Best program.

Landing in the capital of Accra, Trump showed off a sleek look that included a red and white striped tie-front midi shirtdress from Phoebe Philo’s Celine fall ’18 collection and classic pointy white pumps.

Flotus reached for one of her go-to shoe styles, Manolo Blahnik’s BB pumps, to pair with her Céline design for the occasion. The 4-inch heels, featuring a low-cut vamp, retail for $625.

The 48-year-old Slovenian-born former model was greeted by Ghana’s first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, and was presented with flowers by a young girl at Kotoka International Airport.
