Kim Jong Un's wife's outfits and looks attracted much praise during their trip to Beijing - before online comments were deleted by China.

Ri Sol Ju accompanied the North Korean leader on his surprise trip to the Chinese capital this week to meet with President Xi Jinping.

The two leaders' wives were photographed with them a number of times over the two-day trip wearing different outfits, prompting discussion on social media.

Not much is known about Mr Kim's young wife as she is only ever seen by her husband's side on occasional trips in North Korea.

But Chinese people online were full of admiration for her.

Many decided she was better dressed and prettier than Mr Xi's wife, Peng Liyuan, who is also a famous singer and in 2014 was listed as the 57th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.

Following a flurry of comments about North Korea's first lady, search results for Ri Sol Ju were blocked on Weibo, China's Twitter equivalent.

The majority of comments under online news reports had also been deleted.

North Korea's first lady had "a powerful presence", was prettier than Ms Peng and was more fashionably dressed, one user on Weibo said.

Others users compared her to South Korean celebrities, saying she was "as pretty as Song Hye Kyo", an actress who is also popular in China.

"Ri Sol Ju is indeed beautiful and amiable.

"I can tell she would be good at 'first-lady diplomacy', better than Kim's sister," another Weibo user said.

Before rumours the North Korean leader was on a visit to Beijing were confirmed, many thought his younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, was in the capital.

But instead it was the dictator himself, with his wife who wore a cropped camel-coloured jacket with high neck and matching knee length skirt and heels to the opening ceremony.

Her counterpart, Ms Peng, wore a white knee length coat with black ink splotches and black heels.

During a visit to the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Ms Ri wore a white jacket with a green dress and at a lunch at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, where they stayed, she wore an ivory skirt suit with flared waist and sleeves.

William Tang, a Hong Kong fashion designer, deemed her style "subtle" but not conservative.

He said her outfits were "outdated" but impressive considering North Korea has limited access to fashion.

North Korea only confirmed Ms Ri, believed to not be her real name, was the leader's wife in 2012 after she was seen with him at a concert.
