Everyone knows Donald Trump, the man of whom the world’s most talked about now. But perhaps not everyone knows that this insignificant individual has a super hot wife, thanks to the money received largely inherited from his father. We talked about Melania Trump, a Slovenian model naturalized American.
Donald Trump is going to win the primaries of the Republican Party taking advantage of the irrationality of the people and the popularity he has gained with the reality show The Apprentice. How a man so treacherous can have a woman like that is one of those mysteries of the human race that should be explained.
The real name of Melania is Melania Knauss and she was born in Sevnica, in Slovenia’s Lower Sava Valley (part of Yugoslavia) in 1970. Her father, Viktor Knavs, who ran a car dealership and motorcycles, was from the nearby town of Radeče; her mother, Amalia, a fashion designer, was from a village in an area near Sevnica, within the confines of Sevnica Castle. Melania Knauss grew up in a modest apartment in an apartment building. She began her modeling career at age 16 and at age 18 signed with modeling agency in Milan. She speaks fluent English, French, Slovenian, Serbian and German.
After studying design and architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, Melania Knauss was working as a model for the leading fashion houses in Milan and Paris before moving to New York City in 1996. Working with photographers including Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino, Knauss later appeared in the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Ocean Drive, In Style, New York Magazine, Avenue, Allure, Vanity Fair, Self, Glamour, GQ, Elle, FHM and appeared as a bikini model in 2000 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. As a model, was associated with several well-known modeling agencies, including that of Donald Trump, the Trump Model Management.
In 2000, Knauss appeared with Trump while she was campaigning for the Reform Party in 2000 for the presidential campaign, and several years later. She was interviewed in May 2005 with Trump on Larry King Live, four months after their marriage. In 2010, she launched her collection of watches and jewelry, “Melania Timepieces & Jewelry”, seen on QVC, and in 2013, she debuted with a line of skin creams, “Melania Caviar Complexe C6”. Her production line later suffered distribution problems, and in 2013, won a court case and the right to an arbitrary agreement after having sued a supplier Indianapolis for $ 50 million for failing honoring their marketing contract.
After moving to New York City in 1996, Knauss met Donald Trump at the Fashion Week in New York City in September 1998. Their relationship gained notoriety after an interview in 1999 in The Howard Stern show, and additional publicity in 2004 after the launch of Trump in the business of reality TV with The Apprentice. Donald Trump described their long report in 2005: “We never had a discussion, forget the word ‘fight’ … We are just very friendly. We get along.”
After getting engaged in 2004, Trump and Knauss married January 22, 2005 at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, followed by a reception in the ballroom on the estate Mar-A-Lago Trump.
