A 'dressing-down' for Melania Trump!

A 'dressing-down' for Melania Trump!

"Melania will bring an uncommon background to the White House", the report said.

She may be the most important woman on the planet, reported to have a high net worth of $11 million, she's married to billionaire real estate magnate and President-to-be Donald Trump and is said to have a considerable influence on her firebrand husband. She is fluent in five languages: her native Slovenian, Serbian, French, German, and English. Designer Derek Lam is quoted to have said, "While I have incredible respect for our country's political institutions, I find it challenging to be personally involved in dressing the new First Lady". "In terms of the evolution of the first lady, I see her moving us back to the more traditional role", says Wahl Harris. The first to have been a supermodel - and, without a doubt, the first to have posed nude.

Her first major foray into it - the speech at the Republican Convention - ended with findings of plagiarism. "What remains to be seen is what she will do for her husband's administration".

Like many First Ladies - and most people, for that matter - the third Mrs. Trump is more than she seems on the surface. "She is impressively one of the most self-assured, self-confident women I have ever known, and the only one who gets flustered about this sort of talk is me and those who know her and care for her the most". I'm very strong. I can handle everything. "Don't feel sorry for me".

Donald Trump still has one week until he's sworn into office, but his family is already planning changes to the historic White House.

Her decision to stay in NY through the first months of the administration is based on her desire to be with her 10-year-old son, Barron, who will finish the school year there. More than 100,000 New Yorkers have signed a petition demanding the former model leave the city, given keeping her secure there will reportedly cost city taxpayers $1m (£870,000) per day. Whilst some American designers such as Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs have been vocal in their determination not to dress Trump, others have come forward to offer their services to a woman who can put their designs in the global spotlight. Obama has enjoyed massive popularity throughout her husband's presidency and is now tipped by some to be a prospective presidential candidate in her own right.
