“She briefly attended the University of Ljubljana where she studied architecture for a year, but opted out when she signed with an agency in Milan to model full-time. She worked primarily in Italy before moving to the United States in 1996, where her career took off. Her initial runway success caught the attention of famous photographers and landed her the covers of many well-known magazines, including the vaunted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue,” the book also explains.
“Melania Knauss met Donald Trump in 1998 at a Fashion Week party at the Kit Kat Club in Manhattan” — and by that time, she was gracing the covers of the world’s biggest fashion magazines.
The couple were engaged by 2004 and, the following year, they “had the wedding of a lifetime in Palm Beach, Florida.” Advertisement

“On the star-studded guest list was future nemesis Hillary Clinton and her husband and former president, Bill Clinton,” by the way.
The book explains that “2006 was an amazing year for Mrs. Trump”: That year, the Trumps’ son, Barron, was born and she became an American citizen.
Just 10 years later, in November 2016, when Donald Trump was elected 45th president of the United States, “Melania Trump became only the second first lady born outside the United States. (The first was British-born Louisa Adams, spouse of John Quincy Adams.)”
“Melania Trump’s journey from a communist upbringing in Slovenia to becoming first lady of the United States gives her a perspective on true freedom that most people from western Europe and the United States take for granted.”
The book highlights the journey of someone who brings her own “distinctive elegance” to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and to her work on behalf of Americans. Advertisement
At a time when so many people appear to go out of their way to disrespect America’s first lady for their own political purposes — or simply because they can, on social media and elsewhere — it’s refreshing to see a new book that captures so much of Melania Trump’s grace, beauty and poise — and all of her charitable and humanitarian work as well.
She’s shown with children, with dignitaries, with staff, with Americans across the country. She’s shown sharing details of her Be Best campaign, a comprehensive initiative for children and families focused on three main points: well-being, fighting opioid abuse, and positivity on social media.
And she’s shown in diligent moments at the White House, as she oversees a variety of events, activities and arrangements.
Americans can appreciate their first lady — as she deserves to be appreciated.
