The 50-year-old grew up in Slovenia (then part of Yugoslavia), before moving to Milan, Italy when she was 18-year-old to pursue her dreams of modeling.
She moved to the United States in 1996 to continue her career and eventually went on to work on a number of magazine cover shoots including In Style Weddings, New York Magazine, Avenue, Philadelphia Style, Vanity Fair and Vogue.
In September 1998, Melania met real estate mogul Donald Trump at a party and the couple began dating while Trump was in the process of divorcing his second wife, Marla Maples. The couple married in January 2005 and welcomed a son, Barron William Trump in March 2006.
Following her husband’s successful presidential run in 2016, Melania assumed the role of first lady of the United States on January 20, 2017. And with a model in the White House, Washington fashion certainly changed forever.
As her husband campaigns for a second term, FLOTUS continues to step up her style game.
