    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...

    First Lady Melania Trump and White House Communications Director Hope Hicks each held their own in high fashion during a Japanese state dinner in Tokyo Monday night, while the pair are overseas with President Donald Trump on his 12-day trip through Asia. Melania brought the drama when she donned a monochromatic, vibrant red Valentino draped silk gown with matching Manolo Blahnik stilettos while her usually tousled hair was fanned into an updo to show off diamond earrings. Alongside Melania, Hope Hicks shined through a crowd of men in suits by wearing a menswear-inspired tuxedo with her caramel-toned wavy hair draping...

    First Lady Melania Trump visited a Tokyo elementary on Monday afternoon, where she learned about Japanese calligraphy, and learned to write the word 'peace'. Mrs Trump visited Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School with Japan's First Lady, Akie Abe, the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The first lady, accompanying her husband President Donald Trump on his first official trip to Asia, will again have her turn in the spotlight, due in part to a familiar phrase: "What is she wearing?"

    Melania Trump is lonely and obsessed with Michelle Obama. At least in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s version of events anyway. The Nigerian author has penned a short story for the The New York Times’ style magazine, T, which paints the first lady—referred to throughout only as “Mrs T”—as the reluctant wife of the president who displays an unease with her political fame. And she’s a little bit racist, too. Adichie’s “micronovel,” Janelle Asked to the Bedroom, envisions a conversation between a forlorn Trump and her pilates instructor Janelle. The story was published on the Times website and on the T magazine...

    Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history. According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady's office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama. During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year. This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries...

    Did you know there is a woman in Texas who paid a fortune for 9 cosmetic surgeries to make herself look like Melania Trump? She looked perfectly fine before the surgeries but I guess if anyone can make you suffer from self esteem issues it would be Melania.  Odd, isn’t it? Because during the entire 8 years of the Obama Occupation, during which Lady M reigned as the unchallenged fashion icon of America, I can’t recall anyone having even one cosmetic surgery to make themselves look more like Michelle. I wonder why that is.FLOTUS Melania, comforting Las Vegas mass shooting...

    First lady Melania Trump fired back Friday at a Massachusetts elementary school librarian who rejected her donation of Dr. Seuss books, claiming their illustrations are examples of “racist propaganda.” Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady's office, said in a statement to Fox News that the response was "unfortunate," and Mrs. Trump wanted to use her platform "to help as many children as she can." "She has demonstrated this in both actions and words since her husband took office, and sending books to children across the country is but one example," she said. "To turn the gesture of...
