As the old adage goes, “opposites attract,” and this odd couple seems to be the poster child for such the saying. Donald Trump as the outspoken, extroverted half and Melania the reserved half, who hardly ever appears in the limelight. However, despite her seemingly aloof personality, you’d be surprised to find out some interesting facts about Melania – other than her “borrowing” the FLOTUS’ speech.
Here are 5 things you should know about Melania Trump…
1) She’s a great “role” model
Before Donald Trump and Playboy, Melania started her modeling career at the age of 16, she signed to a modeling agency in Milan, Italy at 18. She was runner-up for “Look of the Year” in 1992 in a Slovenia women’s magazine. She’s appeared on the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, GQ, Vanity Fair and more.
2) She’s a college graduate…supposedly
Melania graduated from the University of Ljubljana with a degree in architecture and design…..or so she claims. According to a quote from the New Yorker, Melania posted on her website that she graduated but she, in fact, dropped out her first year.
3) She knows how to ride in style
When you’re married to Trump, you roll with royalty. She spared no expense when she wore a John Galliano gown for her dream wedding. The party and the wedding itself cost over $1 million!
4) She’s a businesswoman
Not only is she a college graduate, she’s also a businesswoman. She’s also a jewelry maker and launched her own line on QVC in 2010 titled “Melania Timepieces & Jewelry”.
5) She’s a real go-getter
She’s not just beauty and brains, but she also knows how to go after what she wants. If you’re wondering how she met Donald, she met her famous husband in 1998 at a party during Fashion Week while he was in attendance – with another woman. She revealed this little-known fact in her 2016 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, “He wanted my number, but he was with a date, so of course, I didn’t give it to him,” she said, instead Donald gave her his number, which ended with her getting all of his numbers.
So now that you know these new details about Melania, do you think she’ll make a great potential first lady?
