President Donald Trump and First Lady, Melania Trump, have welcomed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife, Jenny, to the White House with a pomp-filled military arrival ceremony on the South Law on Friday morning.

And for the occasion, 49-year-old Melania cut a chic figure in a misty blue tailored dress and nude Christian Louboutin snakeskin court shoes with her hair perfectly coiffed.
