Melania Trump's first official portrait as First Lady has been released and it's seriously glam
Meet America's Next Top First Lady.
It's no secret that US first lady Melania Trump likes glamour. Her couture-filled wardrobe, impeccable nails and perfectly coiffed hair for every occasion tell us that right off the bat, but her new official portrait and uncanny ability to smize would make Tyra Banks proud.
Nothing about the Trumps is usual in the White House so it stands to reason that Melania's portrait would stand out from her predecessors - including Michelle Obama, Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush's portraits, which feature open arms and wide smiles, while the Slovenia native looks much more down-to-business in front of the camera.
It also appears to be airbrushed and more representative of a feature in a glossy magazine than a portrait adorning the White House walls.
The former model is clearly taking posing tips from her husband, US President Donald Trump, with her no-nonsense demeanour and crossed arms, much like his time hosting The Apprentice.
Her enormous 12-carat diamond engagement ring (which cost an estimated €935,000) takes pride of place in the shot. Not to mention her French gel manicure.
No designer has yet taken credit for her sequin bow blouse and black blazer, although it's expected she opted for an American designer, despite her attempts at diplomacy through international fashion during her select appearances since President Trump's inauguration on January 20.
The picture was taken in the second floor of the private residence, in front of the East and West Sitting Halls, which is a location preferred by many a First Lady before her and while she has yet to share her causes or intentions during her husband's time in office, she did release a statement saying: "I am honoured to serve in the role of First Lady, and look forward to working on behalf of the American people over the coming years."
