She handed out stuffed eagles to the children at the zoo and posed for pictures near the enclosure of GuGu the Giant Panda, a beloved 17-year-old fixture at the zoo that houses several giant pandas.

First lady Melania Trump and China's first lady, Peng Liyuan, are escorted by a student after a cultural performance during a visit to the Banchang Primary School in Beijing on November 9.

With President Trump and the First Lady now overseas in Asia to discuss foreign relations, the 47-year-old former model stepped out in Beijing to meet with President Xi Jinpeng and his wife, Madame Peng Liyuana, in a custom Dolce & Gabbana gown with an estimated price tag of $3,975.

She then signed a guestbook and took an hour and a half stroll besides aides and security officers.

Beijing Zoo's world famous giant pandas refused to be upstaged when Melania Trump came to visit, with one cheekily "photobombing" the First Lady. The children later sang for the first lady. She received a scroll as a gift before leaving China for Alaska, where she will greet troops.

Mrs Trump, 47, visited the Beijing Zoo as part of a state visit with her husband, President Donald Trump. POTUS traveled to Vietnam, where he will attend meetings for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.

In a statement issued at the conclusion of her trip to China, she thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan for their hospitality during the visit.
