Ever since the world was stumped and TRUMPED at the astonishing win of US President Donald Trump, the world gaze inevitably shifted to his wife and the FLOTUS, Melania Trump. Stepping into the limelight, Melania Trump shed all the tags that the world hurled at her, that of a model, immigrant brunette to assume the coveted title of the First Lady. But doing so with a fashionable aplomb, Melania Trump born on 26 April 1970 turns 47 today. Stunning the world with her radical metamorphosis, Melania Trump captivated the attention of the fashion police who watched with bated breath as she took to donning ensembles that not only were a far cry from her powerful predecessors like Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy. Melania Trump chose to pave her own fashionable way, revamping the whole idea of power dressing, not dictated by colors and styles but adding signature panache to it, a flavor from her glorious days of modeling.
