I Trumped Melania! She's the First Lady's Double - But as ALICE SMELLIE Proves, You Can Get A Millionaire Look Without The Donald's Wallet

First Lady's double proves you can get a millionaire look without The Donald's wallet
As this week's UK state visit proved, the First Lady always looks impeccably stylish. While I'd love to dress like her, with some of her outfits costing north of £50,000 a time, there's little chance of me picking up the same pieces. Perhaps this budget Melania could imitate her wardrobe for a knock-down price. After searching the High Street and online retailers for her state visit looks, I discovered it is possible to look positively presidential without breaking the bank

Ever since Donald Trump's political star ascended, I've started getting funny looks from friends and family.

Not, I hasten to say, because I've become a Trumpette but because they're convinced I bear more than a passing resemblance to his wife Melania.
