Modeling career

Before she married Donald Trump, Melania had a rather successful career as a model.

In 1996, Melania moved to New York where she worked in the fashion industry for two years until she met her future husband.


During her modeling career, Melania managed to grace the covers of several popular fashion magazines. However, after becoming the first lady, Mrs. Trump hasn’t been featured on any magazine’s’ cover. Why is it so?

A popular actor James Wood discussed this topic on Twitter alongside a charming photo of Melania Trump sitting in the blue long dress.

Wood explained:

If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.

The First Lady of the U.S.

Melania gave up her modeling career when she married a business magnate, Donald Trump. The couple raises a son together.


It’s hard to say whether FLOTUS has ever regretted about her decision to leave her native country and move to America. We may suppose she has no regrets, as her current life is rather successful and even luxurious.

Melania has been an American citizen for 22 years after moving to Manhattan. By the way, Mrs. Trump is a real star of her hometown in Slovenia.

The small town is still holding onto Melania turning her name into successful businesses. Melania cake, Melania cream, Melania wine, Melania tea, and even Melania slippers are all available there.



This is a story of the Slovenian girl who has managed to become the first lady. Some people love Melania, others don’t… but agree that not every young lady can reach the same status as she did.
