Step aside, first ladies. There’s a new fashion queen in town and her name is Melania Trump.

Melania effortlessly showed up all the other first ladies at the NATO gathering in Belgium Thursday. Trump was joined by French first lady Brigitte Macron and Turkish first lady Emine Erdogan on a visit to Magritte Museum in Brussels.

Also in attendance were Amelie Derbaudrenghien, the partner of Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, and Ingrid Schulerud, the wife of NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, and several other ladies.

 Melania looked elegant in a belted tan skirt suit alongside Brigitte, 64, who wore an unflattering low-waisted Louis Vuitton mini-dress.

Trump supporters gleefully noted there was no contest between the two first ladies, pointing to an awkward photo of Brigitte Macron looking a confident Melania Trump up-and-down.

Later that day, the NATO first ladies visited Belgium’s Queen Mathilde at the Royal Castle of Laeken, where Melania slayed in a glamorous off-the-shoulder, black lace gown.

The event provided a hilarious unplanned photo-op of Turkish first lady Emine Erdogan giving what appeared to be a side-eye to the statuesque Melania (see above).

While Melania opted to change outfits, French first lady Brigitte Macron wore the same mini-dress she wore hours earlier as she posed for a group photo with the NATO spouses.

The European press has written numerous articles comparing the fashion styles of Brigitte Macron and Melania Trump amid petty liberal media claims that diminutive French president Emmanuel Macron had “crushed” President Trump’s hand with a manly, alpha handshake when they first met.

Twitter observers begged to differ once they analyzed the handshake.

Later that day, Macron appeared to deliberately shade Trump, but only ended up looking petty and small.
