How do you feel about Melania Trump? Okay, maybe we shouldn’t ask that question, unless we want to be bombarded with comments and left arguing with people all night long. We know that there are people who are 100% against Melania Trump and her husband, Donald. We also know that there are people who just brush them off and think of the whole Presidential election thing as a joke. And we suppose that there are others out there who actually want to give the Trumps a chance in the White House. Fine, whatever. We aren’t here to talk politics, we are here to discuss the hotness of Melania. So here is our list of 15 Stunning Photos of Melania Trump Before She Was First Lady.
2017 brings a lot of changes, and we will see just how those will play out. But for now we will take a trip down memory lane in the form of Melania Trump’s old photo shoots and modeling gigs. This woman quit University after just one year and decided to take on the modeling industry. She worked in places like Milan and Paris and eventually came to New York City, where her career and status really flourished. Now she is know more for her connections to Donald Trump, but how do you think he met her? Melania’s modeling promotions and deals left a lasting impression, and it isn’t hard to find some old-school photos of her splayed out and looking ultra sexy. So let’s take a look, shall we?
15 Silver Spoon
Just to remind you that she is worth more than the members of your entire extended family combined, Melania posed for a photo shoot with GQ magazine. In this picture, Melania is seated at a chic and pristine table with a bowl of jewels and fancy expensive things in it. She is using a strand of diamonds as if they were spaghetti noodles, for crying out loud! Her fingers and wrists are dripping in gorgeous jewelry and bangles, and Melania seems to be right at home showing off this lavish amount of wealth. If GQ was going for a photo that would make us dislike Melania, then they were successful with this one. Thanks for the ~subtle~ reminder that Melania practically poops money. And while she is a pretty woman, this photo doesn’t make others feel that great about themselves. It just shows us what a hot exotic thing Donald Trump was able to pick up.
14 Working the Shoulder Pads
Melania was bringing shoulder pads back in this 2016 photo on the red carpet. She was decked out in a white cocktail dress with a high neckline and stunning shoulders that pointed up towards the sky. It looked a bit science fiction-like, but it was also pure high fashion. Sky-high stilettos in silver sparkles accented her outfit and brought it all together. The dress also showed off her toned and trim legs, which looked even longer in those high heels! Even at 46 years of age, Melania still trumped (no pun intended) the other celebrities on the red carpet that night. It was clear that the Slovenian-American model and entrepreneur was well endowed in the good genes department, and she knows that. We wonder how the world will react to having a foreign-born First Lady in the White House? If they were able to accept Michelle Obama (and love her!) then maybe Melania will be okay, too.
13 Silver Siren
In this photo, we see Melania in a whole different light. Now, Melania started her career as a fashion model, and she quit University so that she could travel to places like Paris and Milan - fashion capitals of the world. There, an 18-year-old Melania solidified herself as a great model, and then she moved to New York City. Guess who else is in New York City? Yes, Donald Trump. Anyway, Melania continued to model, snagging a contract with Paolo Zampolli and appearing as a cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, InStyle Weddings, and of course, the incredible Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. In this photo, we see Melania showing off her assets in a tiny silver bikini, her neck splashed out in silver jewels and chokers. It’s not exactly First Lady material, but there is no denying the sexiness oozing out of this photo. Hubba hubba!
12 Husband and Wife
Ew, gross, an ageing Donald Trump clutching the hip of Melania. Oh well, she chose that life. Anyway, at least she looks downright gorgeous in this photo. She is wearing her mini cocktail dress, all decked out in sparkly accents and detail. Her legs look a mile long and they are nice and tan - not orange like Donald Trump’s face. This photo was taken on the red carpet, most likely while Melania and Donald were supporting their daughter, Ivanka, and her partnership with Nordstrom. Ivanka started a clothing and accessories line with the high-end retailer, although in recent months, Ivanka and Nordstrom have been under fire and they are being pressured to drop ties to each other. People are upset about Ivanka’s father and his hateful rhetoric. Some people are now boycotting Nordstrom entirely because the store continues to sell the Ivanka Trump merchandise. This photo goes back to happier times though.
11 American Woman
In this photo shoot, Melania was posed standing before a large American flag, most likely in an effort to show the American people that she stood with them. Whether that is true or not we will see, especially now that Melania is going to be the First Lady of the United States. Melania was born in Slovenia in 1970, and it wasn’t until 2006 that she became a United States citizen. Five years before that, she became a permanent resident of the United States. She came to America after dropping out of the University of Ljubljana. She came to the United States in the late 1990s to work for modeling agencies, and she took in thousands of dollars before she was legally permitted to...pesky visa laws. Will that little backstory hurt Melania’s public image once she is in the White House? Well, people are already seriously against her, especially since she unabashedly supports her hubby.
10 Sexy Tuxedo
Proving that she does not have to be all dolled up in an evening gown all the time, Melania took to this photo shoot with a fresh set of eyes...and a new wardrobe. She was photographed while wearing a sexy tuxedo, tailored to a woman’s body. There is no doubt about it that even in middle age, Melania still has a wonderful body. After all, she has been modeling for half of her life, and to this day she is still asked to participate in photo shoots. Now that she is primed and ready to be the First Lady of the United States, we can almost guarantee that she will be seen in even more magazines on newsstands. In this picture, Melania is posing with one hip jutting out and her hands deftly placed in her trouser pockets. Her blouse is form fitting and her blazer is perfectly fitted to her slender frame. She looks strong and powerful but also feminine and sexy. Her signature golden brown waves are cascading down her shoulders to complete the alluring look.
9 The Elephant in the Room
Speaking of Melania Trump, there are probably many times when she feels that others and herself are avoiding the “elephant in the room.” Perhaps this Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot was a play on words, as Melania was posed next to a life-size elephant statue. Melania was wearing a printed wrap dress with long sleeves and an A-line hem that fell straight down to the floor. A high neckline and a cinched in, belted waist, showed off a very svelte figure, which would be the envy of other 40-something-year-old women around the world. This photo shoot dates back to January 2016, in which Melania gave one of her first interviews about her husband and his prospects in the election campaign for President of the United States. Does Melania think it’s a good idea - really? Or is she just now being used as a pawn in Donald Trump’s game? Think what you will, but Melania is one faithful wife to her orange-skinned hubby.
8 Serene and Sexy
In this photo shoot, we see a more stripped-down version of Melania Trump. No, she isn’t naked, although she is clad in just a white knit sweater and those luscious tresses of hers. This photo is definitely one that shows her at her more vulnerable state of mind. As a high-profile celebrity and the wife of mega-millionaire Donald Trump, Melania needs to be in the public spotlight a lot, and that can be a whole lot of pressure and stress - for anyone. This photo shoot helped us to take a step back and realize that Melania is a woman just like any other, a strong and fierce and ambitious woman, but she can still be quite ordinary. Some people are just placed in precarious public positions. Could this be the case with Melania as well? While we don’t want to judge her for her life choices, we do think it is interesting to think back and imagine how her life would have been different had she not gotten caught up with Donald Trump.
7 Come and Play
Well, if you were worried about Melania Trump becoming the First Lady of the United States, this photo certainly will not put your mind at ease. In this photo shoot, Melania was dressed up in some super sexy lingerie, showing off toned and defined abs, trim arms, and golden skin that looked just kissed by the sun. A perfectly rounded booty and some ample breasts are quite obvious in this get-up, and that’s probably what the photographers wanted...now, whether that was to go against or for Melania is a different story. Some people think that Melania is totally unsuited to be the First Lady, while others think that we should give her a chance. It would be interesting to share this photo with both camps of people and see what their reactions and opinions would be. This definitely looks more like a Victoria’s Secret ad than a political one!
6 The Queen on Her Throne
Or perhaps we should say the First Lady on her throne. This photo shows Melania all dressed up in a beautiful evening gown, complete with ruffles and a sweetheart neckline. The light blue color adds a touch of innocence and femininity to the look, and that could work in Melania’s favor, since there are plenty of people who don’t like her very much. However, the rest of the photo shows off her opulent lifestyle and how much bank she is really worth. That can put a sour taste in people’s mouths. Melania is seated on a throne-style chair, with gilded gold and a luxurious cushion. Majestic pillars and columns are in the background, made to look as though they were constructed of marble, like in the Greek or Roman style. Everything about this photo says opulence and money, and that is pretty much what people think of when they hear the name Melania Trump.
5 Another Day at the Office
And by office, we mean the $100 million Trump tower in New York City, where Donald and Melania hang out and talk business - or one would assume. The office is the penthouse located on the 66th floor of Trump Tower, overlooking the city and providing a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline. The office itself is actually on three separate floors, so it resembles a house more than an office. Marble floors and columns are featured throughout the space, and there are tons of gold accents and details to be found. Grecian statues of the ancient gods adorn one corner of the space, and a Muhammad Ali tribute book worth $15,000 is used as a coffee table by the Trump family. This photograph of Melania in an office is nothing compared to the luxury that you can find the moment you step into the Trump Tower penthouse. Still, she looks ravishing, even though you might hate her for her wealth and authority.
4 Showgirl Style
This older photo of Melania may have you shaking your head, but remember that she was a model first. At age 18 she basically put everything else by the wayside and decided to pursue a modeling career full time. That is why we are seeing a lot of racy and erotic photos of Melania. A lot of these are from days of old, although these days, Melania still does a whole lot of photo shoots and such. It is clear from this photograph that it dates back years ago, but it is still worth seeing if you want to witness Melania in all her glory. In this picture she is wearing a light blue ensemble that resembles what you might see on a Vegas showgirl. She has a mink fur coat draped over her arms and string bikini bottoms that leave little to the imagination. On top, she has a cleavage-baring tank top, which is tied at the bottom to showcase her chiseled stomach.
3 Bikini Babe
Posing for the Fashion Modeling Directory, Melania showed off all of her assets in a crochet-knit bikini and little else. Is it really any wonder why Donald Trump had her eye on her? Now, we can question Melania’s rationale for marrying him, but that is for another time. Right now let’s just focus on this photo. In it, Melania looks ready for the beach - or something else - while she slyly and sensually ties her bikini bottoms before they slip off. Her golden tan skin is dewy and wet from the beachy waves and a perfectly poised hibiscus flower sits in between her breasts. Someone knew what they were doing when directing this photo shoot. Moreover, this photo was taken not too long ago, which only proves that Melania is one woman who expertly ages. She just seems to get more elegant and sexy as time goes on. We can’t say that about Donald.
2 The 2009 Oscars
Of course Melania Trump will make her way into the Oscar Awards show, even if it is just to watch others get the glory. For the 2009 event, Melania opted for a little black dress that was anything but ordinary. The gown was cinched at the waist with a jeweled belt, and it was placed right below her bust line, which was the focal point thanks to a low-cut neckline and draping sleeves. Her shoulders looked elegant and sexy, and a floor-length hem helped her to remain appropriate for the event. Melania would never be caught outside without some jewelry on, so her wrist was adorned with a large diamond bracelet, and she wore a diamond cocktail ring on her finger. Those iconic golden brown locks were swept away from her face, and a pale red lip helped to complete the look. Even though Melania is not an actress, she was still someone to talk about at this awards show.
1 Blast From the Past
This throwback picture is not something that you would see from a typical First Lady of the United States. But then again, Melania is not a typical First Lady. She actually was not very active on the campaign trail. Typically, the wives of Presidential candidates will be right there on the front lines along with their husbands. As for Melania, she was much quieter, probably because she has zero political experience - surprise! Before we get too political, let’s just focus on this photo shoot. It shows a younger Melania clad in a red-orange polka dot one-piece bathing suit. Her body looks teeny tiny, which is typical for a professional model. Melania's breasts are the prime asset in this picture, and pretty much speak for themselves. This woman is STACKED. A darker hair color is featured on her, and bright red lips add an even deeper level of sexiness to the photo.
