Melania Trump: the first non American first lady

It is now official Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States of America. The American people have chosen an outsider as their representative for the next four years. A choice that included the vice -president Michael “Mike” Pence and above all the new first lady of America: Mrs Melania Trump.

Melania Trump (nee Melanija Knavs aka Melania Knauss) was born on the 26th of April 1970 in Slovenia which, at that time, was still part of the USSR.

Almost 30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall and the disappearance of the iron curtain between the western european countries and the communist east it seems that relationships between America and Russia will be much easier…at least “language-wise“! The new first lady speakes fuently several languages due to her career in the fashion industry.

Melania Trump started her career as a model when she was only 16 years old. Her looks brought her to travel the world and to work for the most notable photographers and fashion designers.

Magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair featured Melania Trump on their pages and it was fashion that brought her to be the first lady of America.

She met Donald Trump during New York’s fashion week in September 1998. Seven years after their were tightening the knot in a super fancy ceremony in Palm Beach (Florida) which saw the participation of Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton.

Melania Trump might not be the usual wife of an unusual president but for sure will be competing with her predecessor Michelle Obama when it comes to fashion and sense of style.

Given her past career it should be easier for Melania to find herself comfortable in the role of fashion icon but will she be able to be more than that?

Michelle Obama was able to find her own vocation during her husband’s mandates. She became the official spokesperson for the obesity-related issues and promoted healthy nutrition.

What is up for Melania Trump? Maybe she will really be the ideal link between Russia and this new America that we are about to see.
