    For better or worse, the First Lady of the United States is an important figure in fashion, and Melania Trump is no exception. Starting with the glamorous white bell-sleeved Roksanda dress she wore to give her viral speech at the Republican National Convention in 2016 to the $595 black snakeskin Manolo Blahnik stiletto heels she wore en route to the devastation wrecked by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Melania’s wardrobe has given the public plenty to talk about. While her predecessor Michelle Obama used her wardrobe as a way to highlight fresh, up-and-coming American designers (putting designers like Jason Wu on...

'So after pondering about how to best celebrate the first anniversary of President Trump's victory, I decided to invite the President to Korea as a...

    While handing out candy at the White House Halloween party today, one of the trick-or-treaters surprised Melania Trump with a fun Halloween trick — her own pint-sized double. Military families from the Washington, D.C., area participated in the festivities, and among the many costumes, one of the young girls dressed as the first lady. Channeling Melania’s Hurricane Harvey look, the girl greeted President Donald Trump’s wife while wearing a white top, FLOTUS hat, black trousers and the same white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers she sported during a tour of ravaged areas in Texas in August.

    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...

    Trump visit to UK downgraded to 'working visit' amid threats of mass protestsDonald Trump is set to visit Britain early in 2018 - but for a stripped-down trip that will not include staying with the Queen. Diplomats are discussing plans for a “working visit” by the US president that will be shorn of the pomp and flummery of a full-blown State Visit. And instead of a red carpet event to showcase the special relationship, it is likely to form part of a tour of several countries by Mr Trump. The downgrading of Mr Trump’s first trip as President to...

    The Queen’s most senior courtier was forced out in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and Prince Charles. Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, left his post in July after complaints by the Prince of Wales and his brother, the Duke of York, sources have revealed now. The unprecedented ousting — the first time the Queen has got rid of her private secretary — was the climax of increasing tensions between the two royal households. It came amid differences over how to manage the transition of power between the Queen, who is 91, and her eldest son. Royal sources...

    S tanding at almost 5’10” in my stocking feet, I’ve never been much for wearing high heels. I feel freakishly tall in them, but that’s never stopped me from envying women who can pull off towering pumps and sandals—particularly the sexy, spiky kind—because it is much harder than it looks. Gracefully navigating sidewalks, stairs, and dance floors on six-inch needles requires a type of agility and confidence—not to mention  sobriety—few women possess altogether and at once. So perhaps that’s why the claws came out at the sight of Melania Trump’s stilettos Tuesday morning. The first lady boarded Air Force One...
