Melania Trump news: Donald Trump’s wife uses style to ‘stand out’ in public
Melania Trump is the US First Lady and wife of the 45th US President, Donald Trump, 73. Since taking on her role in the White House, Melania has sent a strong message of who she is and why she won’t fade into the background, an expert claimed.
When she accompanies Donald on state business, she will attract attention with her fashion choices.
Knowing her previous job, it is no surprise that Melania seems keen to wear stylish and trendy looks.
In recent years, she has also made a move towards picking flattering yet elegant outfits.
Often sporting the latest designer looks, it was estimated she spent a fortune of £193,694 on outfits for public appearances last year alone.
Melania could use her focus on fashion to make a statement, Gianni Casagrande of shoe brand Moda in Pelle said.
He explained: “When it comes to Melania Trump, America’s First Lady, she is certainly sending a strong message of who she is via her sartorial choices.”
The mother-of-one will sometimes make solo appearances in her role as First Lady.
Over the last couple of years – and before the coronavirus lockdown – the First Lady had attended events by herself to promote the Be Best initiative.
He said: “Melania is a fan of bold colours and tailoring, and isn’t afraid to stand out and wear something eye catching.
“Melania’s style choices demonstrate that she isn’t someone happy to fade into the background, and that she is confident in her position.
“She is not afraid to strike a balance between elegant and sexy, always pairing any outfit with smouldering eye make-up and glamorous waves.”
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
