When it comes to stylish first ladies, Melania Trump is up there with the best of them.

Trump’s sleek style has captured attention around the world ever since her husband announced he was running for president and people have only become more obsessed every time she steps out for an official engagement.

On Friday, she accompanied the president to the Joint Andrews Airforce base in Maryland and boy did she bring the style.

Taking her inspiration from the military uniform, the first lady rocked a khaki jacket, beige cigarette pants and snakeskin heels.

However, an awkward exchange between the pair quickly went viral after the president chose to vigorously shake his wife’s hand rather than give her a hug or kiss.

The first lady appeared surprised by the gesture and put on a strained smile as she made her way to her chair.

Much has been made of the couple’s public relationship since the election campaign with many comparing their often stiff and clinical appearences to those of Barack and Michelle Obama, who were regularly affectionate with each other in public. 

The Obamas even shared a smooch on the kiss cam at a basketball game between the US and Brazil in 2012. 

Do you think people are overreacting or was the handshake a bit odd? Is this just a case of different couple, different ways of showing affection?
