    While First Lady Melania Trump may want to visit "a desert island" for the holidays, her popularity may be inspiring others to flock to her native country, Slovenia. Slovenia reported a 9 percent hike in tourism revenue this year, Reuters reported, with a 23.4 percent increase in tourists from the United States. The first lady was even more popular among Americans than her husband, President Donald Trump, according to a December Gallup poll. Tourists may be exploring the central European country but Melania Trump would rather escape on a tropical vacation. On December 8, she paid a visit to the...

White decorations at Christmas? The horror!No, wait, that was the Obamas in 2015. Never mind…This is truly beyond the pale: In a year during which many have speculated that Melania hates her husband and does not want to be First Lady at all (a claim that has recently resurfaced), Melania’s White House Christmas...

    First lady Melania Trump hosted children to the White House Monday as she walked through a fully-decorated executive mansion, unveiling her vision of a Trump Christmas – simple, yet elegant, with elements of Americana and nature. 'She's beautiful, like an angel!' one young boy remarked, as the first lady – whose cream-colored belted dress with bell sleeves could have been worn by a tree topper – walked into the East Room to help a group of kids make garland. 'Are you the first lady?' another youngster asked. Melania Trump entered the holiday festivities by taking the grand staircase, into the...

    It is the most wonderful time of the year - and it appears first lady Melania Trump is already full of the festive spirit. The 46-year-old mother-of-one began preparations for Christmas at the White House this week, first receiving the official tree on Monday, along with her 11-year-old son Barron, and then beginning the all important task of decorating it - and the building itself. Melania shared pictures of herself, taken across a couple of days, on Twitter in which she can be seen hanging ornaments on a tree, putting some finishing touches to a bow on a wreath, and...

    Christmas preparations are in full swing at the White House, and they sure are a lot more involved that what goes on in most houses, which usually involves dragging the tree out of storage and flinging a bit of tinsel around. Melania Trump and son Barron joined in an old-fashioned tradition of receiving the official White House Christmas tree, something that the first lady of the house does every year, though Michelle Obama had trouble dragging her teenagers out into the cold for the festive event last year. Melania and Barron welcomed a 5.9 metre- (19 foot 3 inch) tall...

    First Lady Melania Trump will accept the official White House Christmas tree Monday evening. The event is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET. Normally, the first lady receives the White House Christmas tree on the Friday following Thanksgiving. This year, however, and due to the family's rigorous schedule, the holiday season will hit the White House a bit early. What does that mean, exactly? Well, according to the Palm Beach Post, the Trumps will be extending their Thanksgiving respite at Mar-a-Lago until November 26, which would be well after the normal tree delivery day. As a result, the tree...

    JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — Melania Trump might have been a fashion model at one time in her life, but she had no qualms ripping off a chunk of messy play dough and getting her hands dirty, just like the three preschoolers seated at the table with her Friday at a military base in Alaska. Trump expertly rubbed the material between her two hands into a perfect sphere and then rolled the red small ball on the table to the girl seated across from her. The nation’s first lady then moved to the table to her right and made a...

    Hope Hicks has looked like perfection during the Trump trip to Asia, to the point people thought she upstaged Melania. But In China, FLOTUS shined! Why Did Hope tone it down? During the Trump administration’s two-day tour of South Korea, PR director Hope Hicks, 29, has been slaying the fashion game. She’s rolled out perfect outfit after outfit for the official trip, including an adorable tuxedo for an event, and a cute, ruffled sweater paired with a black skirt for a meeting. But as President Donald Trump and his team arrived in China, her wardrobe adopted a decidedly different look....

    First Lady Melania Trump stepped out in shimmering metallic stilettos on her second day abroad in Tokyo, Japan Monday to visit Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School. Melania coordinated her caped, circle-skirt navy Christian Dior dress with Japanese First Lady Akie Abe, who also wore a long-sleeve navy dress and patent leather belt. But it was Melania’s metallic — almost iridescent — Manolo Blahnik snakeskin stilettos that glimmered through her otherwise pared-down ensemble. As Breitbart News reported, Melania grabbed worldwide headlines when she arrived in Tokyo in a multicolored, embellished Fendi coat. Later that evening, for dinner with President Trump, Japanese Prime...
