There’s a lot of kissing going on in France, and photographers are having a field day.

During the second day of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, President Donald Trump and his team conducted bilateral meetings with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But the “real” news being reported apparently includes some “awkward” kisses and First Lady Melania Trump’s grace and fashionable wardrobe stealing the show wherever she went.

A U.S.-U.K. working breakfast meeting started off the day’s agenda for Trump, the first face-to-face between the president and Prime Minister Johnson since the U.K leader took office in July. Day two was capped off with a summit dinner that included world leaders and their spouses at Hotel du Palais. The group assembled for photos outside the hotel, with friendly greetings exchanged all around.

Worth noting, Russian President Vladimir Putin is nowhere to be seen at the G7. Not so long ago, the group was the G8 before Russia was removed from the organization. Trump has repeatedly said that he believes Russia should be readmitted. On Tuesday, as he prepared for the summit, he said that he’d be “disposed” to allow Russia to rejoin the group if the motion was made to allow that to happen, and French President Emmanuel Macron reportedly agreed with him in a phone conversation that day.

“President Obama thought it wasn’t a good thing to have Russia in, and so, he wanted Russia out,” Trump said, referring to the country’s 2014 removal. “But I think it’s much more appropriate to have Russia in, particularly the G8, because a lot of things we talk about have to do with Russia. So, I can certainly see it being the G8 again, if somebody would take that motion, I would certainly be disposed to think about it very favorably.”

He also commented that former President Obama was the one who wanted Putin out of the group. “But as you know, for most of the time, it was the G8. It included Russia, and President Obama didn’t want Russia in because he got outsmarted. Well, that’s not the way it really should work,” Trump said.

The press, apparently starved for more substantial news out of the summit, has tried to make light of the customary kisses of greeting between some of the leaders at the Sunday evening dinner, to include descriptions of “awkward” Trump kisses on the cheeks of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Macron’s wife Brigitte.

The Daily Mail’s headline for its Day 2 dinner coverage included a description of the First Lady as “radiant-in-red Melania.”

“Melania looked effortless in a red sleeveless dress while standing in the cool, windy weather,” read the report.

Another article said that “Melania Trump wore a stunning sleeveless Alexander McQueen frock with a $2,375 price tag for night two of the G7 summit.”


Earlier in the day, Melania attended a spouses program where she and Brigitte Macron and the others toured a Basque village nearby. “Melania spent the day sightseeing in Biarritz wearing a summery Calvin Klein piece before slipping into the more eye-catching, curve-hugging number in the same color French First Lady Brigitte Macron had worn that day,” the Mail reported.


On Saturday, Melania Trump set the tone for the long weekend by dazzling in multiple outfits:
