Melania Trump made sure she stood out from the crowds as she joined her husband in Helsinki on Monday while wearing a very summery pale yellow jacket coat that came complete with a unique butterfly-shaped belt buckle.

The first lady, 48, looked radiant in the $3,700 sunshine-yellow Gucci jacket dress, which features a funky enamel butterfly at the center of the attached belt, even making sure to wear a matching pair of bright yellow high heels to complete the look.

Wearing her long brown hair in a straight style that swept slightly across her fave, Melania looked picture-perfect as she stood side-by-side with President Donald Trump, 72, and Russian Vladimir Putin in Finland's capital, where her husband looked ahead to 'great opportunities' between the US and Russia.

Look your best in this Gucci coat like Melania's

First Lady Melania Trump cut a stylish figure as she was photographed having tea with the first lady of Finland.

During this highly photographed trip to the United Kingdom, and now Finland, Melania has favored muted pale colors like the Burberry trenchcoat she wore off Air Force One, her pale yellow J.Mendel gown for dinner at Blenheim Palace or the Robin's Egg blue color of her riding jacket she wore yesterday from Isoude.

In keeping with her sleek 'do and fashion-forward ensemble, Melania opted for a very glamorous makeup look for the photo op with her husband and Putin, accentuating her high cheek bones with a healthy helping of contour, and lining her eyes with a smokey brown shadow.

She finished the look off with some pale pink lip gloss. 

It is the second time that Melania has donned the bright sunshine-inspire hue on this trip; on Thursday evening the first lady wore a very similar shade, but this time in the form of a stunning caped gown while attending a lavish gala dinner with her husband at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.  

Although her Monday morning look was much more low-key than the lavish floor-length dress, the bright shade of the fabric was almost identical.  

And, as it turned out, Melania's choice of outfit was perfect for the occasion; before meeting with Putin, Melania and Trump joined Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and his wife, poet Jenni Haukio, for breakfast at the president's home in Helsinki, where Finland's first lady showed off her own butterfly-themed look.

While it is not known whether the first ladies coordinated their ensembles in advance, Jenni appeared to have the warm summer weather in mind while picking out her ensemble, just like Melania.

The Finnish first lady looked every inch as summery as her American counterpart in a short-sleeved pale blue dress with a colorful pattern that featured florals and butterflies across the fabric. 

However, while Melania's outfit might have looked perfect for the day's events, she may well have regretted her decision to wear something so heavy given that Helsinki is experiencing its hottest day in years. 

Temperatures soared to 86 degrees Fahrenheit, which no doubt made for a rather uncomfortable few minutes while Melania posed for pictures alongside her Finnish counterpart and their husbands outside in the heat.

After posing as a foursome on the balcony at the president's official residence, Melania and Jenni enjoyed a conversation 'about issues facing our nations', according to the former's Twitter account.

Posting on the official FLOTUS account, Melania shared an image of the two women sitting together at the residence, in which she can be seen beaming happily at the camera, while Jenni smiles alongside her.

'Enjoyed conversation with the First Lady of Finland today - good conversation about issues facing our nations,' the tweet read. 'Thank you to @JenniHaukio for hosting me!'

However, Melania's chic sense of style wasn't the only skill she showcased on Monday; during a press conference held by her husband and the Russian president, the mother-of-one showed off her sporting prowess when Trump threw her a soccer ball that he had been passed by Putin.  

Having mentioned this year's FIFA World Cup, which Russia hosted, Putin gifted Trump a soccer ball, saying: 'Speaking of the football, Mr President, I give this ball to you and now "the ball is in your court". All the more that the United States will host the World Cup in 2026.'

Having been given handed the ball, Trump then thanked Putin, saying, 'Thank you very much, we will host it, and we hope we do as good a job. 

'That's very nice, that will go to my son Barron, we have no question - in fact, Melania, here you go!'

Trump then threw the ball over the podium towards his wife, who was sitting in the front row - and deftly caught the soccer ball, before perching it on her lap for the remainder of the conference.

However, while her soccer skills may have overtaken her stylish display on this occasion, the first lady's wardrobe has certainly had its fair share of time in the spotlight during the couple's trip. 

Indeed, Melania's Gucci dress is just one of her latest runway-worthy styles on her European tour; as well as the beautiful J. Mendel she wore to the Blenheim Palace bash, the first lady has also showcased pieces from Burberry, Victoria Beckham and Ralph Lauren, as well as toting an Hermes Birkin handbag on several occasions.

She was seen carrying the high-priced purse on Sunday, when she arrived at Helsinki Airport wearing a very trendy outfit of brown leather trousers and a sleek pale grey jacket over a white button-down. 

However, despite wearing heels on almost every outing throughout this trip, Melania chose to keep her trusty Christian Louboutin heels tucked away on this occasion and instead wore brown flats from the designer brand as she descended Air Force One.

She finished off the look with a pair of large sunglasses, and once again wore her brown hair in a sleek straight style around her shoulders.
