The former model likes high heels which she says gives her an extra air of confidence

Melania Trump

Dress by Jason Wu

It fits very well and, although it’s simple, it’s still elegant, chic and powerful. It has a special design on the sleeve and the material and colour is very springlike and very fresh. Dresses in strong colours with open shoulders are important because when I present the jewellery I design, it really pops. I do love dresses but also trouser suits, a fitted blazer, black skinny jeans and heels. It’s New York chic.

Shoes by Christian Louboutin

I have a particular love for nude-coloured shoes. They make the leg go on forever and don’t distract from the outfit. These Louboutins are very feminine but comfortable at the same time.

I am definitely a high-heel kind of woman. You walk differently when you wear heels, and they give me an extra air of confidence.

Bag by Hermès

I love the size and material of the Birkin bag. It fits a lot inside, from my iPad to sketches to samples. This was a specially ordered off-pink colour that I got in Paris. It’s also a great carry-on for when I travel between Manhattan and Palm Beach. It’s just very versatile.

Watch by Melania Timepieces & Jewellery

This Louvre watch I designed is from my Paris collection. It’s meant to look like a bracelet that you could wear to lunch or a night out. The other two collections are New York, more business-like, and Palm Beach, which is sportier.

Rings by private jeweller

One is my engagement ring and the other a 15-carat yellow diamond that I got as a gift from Donald on our one-year anniversary.
