Melania Trump's Shoe Style as First Lady

Melania Trump's Shoe Style as First Lady

Photographer Matthew Atanian, who said that he was Mrs. Trump's roommate when she first came to the U.S.in 1996, recalled her following a strict regimen to stay slim. While hosting the nation's governors and the capitol's most influential women for soirees and luncheons earlier this year, the new first lady asked her guests to leave "political labels and partisan interests behind" while in her presence.

"About six months after they married, [Trump] became pregnant with Barron-and things changed", according to Vanity Fair's new and delicious piece on Melania Trump's general unhappiness, titled "Inside the Trump Marriage: Melania's Burden". It includes claims from mostly unnamed sources that their union may not necessarily be a romance for the ages.

A former campaign aide recalled Melania Trump, 47, once admitting that she was dead-set against Donald running for president - for fear he might actually win.

However, it seems now Melania is stepping into the limelight once again as she was seen joining Trump more frequently in Washington D.C. The First Lady was seen beside the POTUS on his first military hospital visit where he awarded an Army veteran with a Purple Heart, on Saturday. "There's been no "Barron will be going to my school" gossip, a parent at prep school St. Albans told the magazine. As compared to previous presidents who have made it a point to paint a picture of a happy and healthy marriage, the Trump's pale alongside them. According to The Huffington Post, Donald Trump only agreed to have a baby with Melania Trump if she promised to work toward getting her figure back post-pregnancy. "There was no 'How do you feel?' No opening of doors, making sure she didn't fall". The couple have just one son, and their mother appears to dote on him, but a source told the magazine that Melania had to fight to have the child she wanted.

Grisham countered that the president was "very warm and supportive throughout her pregnancy".

"Even those First Ladies who evaded the spotlight-such as Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, and Pat Nixon-graciously and publicly stood by their men", A. Scott Berg, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Wilson, the best-selling 2013 biography of Woodrow Wilson, tells Vanity Fair. "And she said, 'Yeah, he's a really good husband.' It was being dragged out of her", says D'Antonio.

Melania demonstrated "Slavic discipline" in her modeling career in NY.

Vanity Fair cites two anonymous sources in fashion and media who claim that Melania and Ivanka don't have the best relationship, but Grisham claims the two are "fine".
