“Melania is a fan of bold colours and tailoring, and isn’t afraid to stand out and wear something eye-catching.”
The former model has developed a strong look while in the White House.
While the changes have been obvious over the last few years, she may have started updating her look as far back as 2000.
Gianni continued: “We’ve seen a distinct change in Melania’s style since Trump was inaugurated in early 2017, though the transformation began much earlier.
“Donald’s bid for political office began way back in 2000.
“Since then Melania’s style has been moving away from fun-loving party girl to serious political figure, but still keeping to a few of her signature features.
“For example, form fitting materials, bright colours and glamorous accessories.”
By opting for striking but slightly conservative looks, the expert suggested she has shown herself as more serious.
“But she still often goes for an off-the-shoulder look or a thigh split, giving a nod to her previous wardrobe.”
While in the role of the First Lady, Melania has followed in the footsteps of those before her by backing campaigns.
She has often spoken out on issues that are important to her and has supported the Be Best initiative, which focuses on the wellbeing of young people.
Melania Trump: Five facts about the USA’s First Lady
Mum-of-one Melania can speak more languages than any other First Lady before her: English, French, German, Italian, Serbian and of course her mother tongue, Slovenian.
This also makes her the only First Lady whose first language is not English.
After Jacqueline Kennedy, Melania is the second First Lady who is a practising Catholic.
She met Pope Francis as part of a foreign tour with her husband and stepdaughter Ivanka.
Melania was a successful model, posing for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.
Her skills aren’t confined to print, and she appeared in a commercial for Aflac, an American insurance company, in 2005.
Melania’s parents are Amalija Knavs and Viktor Knavs, and the couple live together in Washington.
She has one sister, Ines, who is reported to live in New York and work as an artist.
On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as “an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children”.
There are three main strands to the initiative: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.
