Melania Trump news: Donald Trump’s wife wears lockdown outfits worth £4k
Melania Trump attracted attention as she joined Donald Trump for a tour of the SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 Launch at Kennedy Space Centre this week. She has worn outfits worth around £4,000 since the coronavirus lockdown began. Who pays for her designer looks?
The sleeveless garment nipped in at the waist and continued into a pleated midi skirt.
Melania completed the look with Manolo Blahnik BB pumps in white which are on sale for $665, or around £538.
The mother-of-one is no stranger to wearing pieces from designer brands and her recent style has shown this.
On the few outings she has made since the coronavirus lockdown began, Melania has worn a number of expensive ensembles.
Last weekend, the President and First Lady attended Memorial Day events in Maryland and Virginia.
For the trip, Melania wore a double breasted coat from Gucci, which costs a staggering £2,210.
The white garment had notched lapels and six gold buttons on the front.
In April, she joined Donald Trump to celebrate Earth Day at the White House.
Who pays for her designer outfits?
Being in the White House, some may be interested to know where she gets the money for her expensive looks.
However, it is likely she pays for these herself and she has a net worth of £40million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson previously stated Melania “pays for all her own clothes”.
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.
