Melania Trump: The Story of Cinderella

Donald Trump's wife, Melania, is really gorgeous woman. Press repeatedly discusses her expensive clothes and scandalous photo shoots.

It's the second time in US history, following Louisa Adams in 1825, when the US First Lady is a foreign-born woman.

But what do we really know about Melania? She was born in the former Yugoslavia in a family of a patternmaker Amalija Knavts and a manager of car and motorcycle dealerships Viktor Knavs. She grew up in a modest apartment in Sevnica. Melania attended Secondary School of Design and Photography in Ljubljana and studied at the University of Ljubljana for one year before dropping out. Melania decided to devote herself to modeling and made a successful career in it. It’s modeling career that brought the 26-year-old Slovenian girl to the city of her dreams - New York.

Melania met Donald Trump in September 1998 at New York Fashion Week party.

They married in January 2005 at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida. The bride wore $100 thousand dress by Dior, decorated with 1500 crystals. It is said that it took 550 hours for its production.

The basis of today’s Mrs. Trump’s wardrobe are laconic monochrome knee-length dresses, elegant costumes of bright colors and luxurious evening attires with fancy details like asymmetrical neckline and puff sleeves. Casual look of Donald Trump’s third wife are skinny jeans and leather pants-pipes, basic shirts, T-shirts and close-fitting jackets of soothing shades. With her talent of mixing basic things with designer clothes Melania may become not only the sexiest, but also the most stylish First Lady in history.

Whether she cares about fashion or not, first ladies are usually more seen than heard, given their supporting role in the presidency. Thus, the first lady's clothes can speak volumes for millions of Americans watching.

Impressions on Melania’s personality and style are as much contradictory as reviews about her husband's candidacy for the US presidency.

Meanwhile, since Trump’s victory, Melania has become even more popular in her home town, Sevnica. One of pizzerias of the city named a dessert in her name. Who knows, may be in near future we will see "Melania" fashion collection or a dress design.
