I remember seeing pictures of Melania when she was younger and I used to like some of her outfits, but there is always something wrong about the way she carries herself. She’s always a bit tacky, regardless of what she wears.

Melania is like a Chanel bag purchased on Canal Street. Similar to what it wants to be, but it will always be a bad copy of the real thing.

R12, EVERYONE knows that quote is attributed to Kathryn Parker! And OP, Michelle Obama may be smart and a seemingly nice person but she DOES NOT know fashion. Sorry but she does not know how to dress for her body type. Melanie on the other hand may or may not be a nice person but she does know fashion. Clothes look good on her.

by Anonymousreply 7110/11/2018

R24 There is a photo of her in the SI swimsuit issue with a big inflatable dolphin, and she did do a few print ads as well.

I don't think that she or even he has claimed she did runway work. She was a model in the same way that Howard Stern's wife Beth Ostrovsky was. They did bridal mags and catalogs. No one refers to either as a big girl in the biz, but that does not mean that they did not work.

I would post the SI pic but I don't know how. It is readily available online though.

Melania misses far more than she hits. She just doesn't have taste and she's aiming for young. Fact is, she's past it. I did like the yellow and magenta evening gowns.

I used to think Michelle Obama had more misses than hits, but looking at these pictures, she really could pick an outfit for the most part. I always think of her in poodle skirts and kitten sweaters, don't know why. But she looked good.

What I'd kill to see is how Melania has done up the private quarters upstairs at the White House. It's not uncommon for Architectural Digest to score a spread but so far it hasn't happened. I'm dying to see. I am not sure the Obamas did it either.

Melania is tall and broad. She has really no waist. She uses fabric to give herself s shape. She adds fabric to widen her shoulder for a waist or wears a circle skirt to give herself a waist. Doesn't work. She has enormous fake boobs that ruin the line of her clothes. She would look better in simple silhouettes that are tailored around the bust. She needs to get rid of the wig and the fillers around her eyes.

[quote] I'm dying to see. I am not sure the Obamas did it either.

Here ya go, R73. Also, it is worth noting that it is reported that the Obama's forsook the budgeted money that goes towards the White House private residence decorating and used their own money. The Trump's on the other hand used that budget and much more. It's reported that the Trump's used donated inaugural money for private residence decoration.

Nice try R72. But as a matter of fact, both Donald and Melania lied their asses off about her entire past including her education and modeling work. The lies are documented in the link at R47. As part of his many lies to the media, he repeatedly referred to her as a successful European supermodel when he first introduced her as his girlfriend.

Michelle Obama was comfortable in her own skin and it showed, especially in sporty clothes. She had a definite style, and stuck to it most of the time.

Melania does look like she’s playing dress up, trying different looks, different costumes. She not as sure of herself.

Then, too, I wonder if our perception isn’t influenced by our knowledge of her past?

by Anonymousreply 7910/11/2018

The big thing about Melania is that she has no confidence. She never wears her clothes with pride and she never owns it. That's one of the main reasons why she looks so bad most of the time.

With Michelle, even in her worst outfits she still has a smile on and her confidence shines.

Remember when we found out that Melania worked illegally without a green card? But journalists just don’t care about that anymore, because emails, Kanye in the White House and other super important things.

From the article:

“Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the US worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country”

Ok, so Melania received 2 grand per “modeling job”? That’s not how this works for successful fashion models. Melania has said that she was a very successful model on the runways of Milan and Paris, which is bullshit.

You can watch the Larry King interview right after their wedding where both Trumps talk about her supermodel career.

It's funny because one Howard referred to Beth O as a supermodel when they were dating and she was genuinely mortified. She knew exactly what she was and was not...a working NY model--nothing else.

But Melania did look cute in the SI shoot, and the pic was not racy at all(like those horrid jet photos which looked to be art directed by Trump himself.)

What I thought was interesting was finding out that Victoria Silvstedt was Melania’s roommate when they both lived in Paris.

Melania just has an ex stripper vibe to her. The spray tan, the boob job, the badly Botoxed face. Ivanka has intentionally upstaged her as the true fashion darling /First Lady of the WH. Lots of plastic surgery work on that face as well but not obvious. You would have never guessed she once had a slackjaw, pudgy face, and crooked nose.

They're trying to make her into something that she is not. In the link is part 2 of her interview last night. And, given the amount of YouTube hits no one is watching it or her. But, two things I would like to point out; 1) Notice at the one minute mark how her staff (save one person) are all wearing Black or very dark blues. That looks like a set up to me. 2) If ever you thought that a GOP internet strategy was just a conspiracy just look at the comments of this video (and the others if you want) and you will see that they are 99% negative towards ABCNews. That's rather strange, non? Here's a sampling;

"Terrible that ABC didn't just show the Interview & clips with Melania, instead they edited the hell out of this, cut off her answers & edit it with people saying nasty things about She & Trump? Things that she can't even respond to? why didn't the interviewer says THOSE things to Her Face? It's supposed to be Being Melania Not a hit piece, But of course it's ABC Mockingbird Media. Melania still shines despite ABC's Attempt to make She & Trump look bad. What an elegant well spoken Woman. Great wife & Mother."

"Melania is correct, the bullying is direct and very subtle, just like ABC's little piece on her. ABC complains about Donald being crude but you can see that for yourself , however media is a bit more " hidden " in their criticism. Think about it for a moment,, would ABC have aired this type of mystery theater on Michelle ? Probably not , I'm certain it would have been presented in a much more favorable light , instead of the Rod Serling science fiction approach. Subtle."

"People will do anything to attack her. She is just another human being, when will people have common sense and treat her with the respect she deserves."

"NEVER. Despite being a smart, five language speaking supermodel, we will never see her on the cover of a fashion magazine. Instead, we're still seeing Michelle. The media has NO intention of ever cutting Melania a break...just hoping to subtly finding an opportunity to make fun of her or get her to say something off about her husband. I have no idea why she would ever agree to be interviewed....colossal waste of her time."

"abc NEWS, the only thing you accomplished here was to make her even more amazing and how ridiculously STUPID and FAKE as hell you are... unbelievable !!"

"This interview was such bullshit and a waste of Time."

"Pretty shabby "profile." Melania's an old-World, old-fashioned, intelligent but relatively simple woman. She doesn't get a tenth of the respect of any other First Lady in living memory because of her husband's politics. A better title for this would be "Being the Mainstream Media as it Carries On Its War on the Right." Just another reminder as to why I, and millions of others, avoid the MSM."

"I found the interview hostile toward our FLOTUS. Why must the media hate on her? She's a lovely woman who is doing a fine job. Leave her be!"

"ABCD had no intentions of giving her a fair and honest interview instead they used it as bashing President Trump. They edited what she would be saying from the full sentences and then interjected negative things about the president. This was not an interview of Melania it was to bash her husband. Shame on ABC but then what do you expect they are a communist organization and the people that work for them are communist. Wake up America🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸"

R138 Cindy Crawford and 3 other top models of the 80s-90s did Playboy. Would you not describe that as soft porn as well? Nude photography does not mean one wasn't a working model; and I have always claimed she was only a working model. I have never maintained she was anywhere close to a top name brand model.

You can pan her looks all you want, but can you say with a straight face that she wasn't attractive enough to do catalog work at 5'10? Shit, I am 5'8 1/2 and even I did a lot of catalogue work out of fucking ATL in the 80s. And I have never even called myself a model...just a girl making a few bucks to supplement her real job.

And finally, can anyone provide any porny photography she did BEFORE she met Donald? You know, when she was an escort in Paris with Victoria Silvestadt?(sp?) It is my opinion that pervy Trump pushed her to do that shit so he could brag to other men: "see what a great body she has? I fuck that every night!"

R163, so you're posting a "joke" picture about Michelle from Alex Jones. What is your point?

I mean, I'm not the one saying Melania is a real model and dresses well.

I'm the one refraining from pictures of Melania figuring herself.

I suppose I can post her soft porn pictures or her pre surgery face.

But that crap is too ugly and unfunny for me.

by Anonymousreply 165Last Saturday at 8:50 PM

I actually think Melania can sometimes look stunning, but 99% of the time she always looks stiff and overdressed. Michelle Obama genuinely had flair but she wore her clothes more easily--as Liza would say, SHE wore THEM; they didn't wear her.

Her pre-surgery face was gorgeous. It was pointed out here a long time ago that she looked a bit like Paulina.

She is not a Kyle case. Kylie was a plain fugly little girl before cosmetic surgery, Melania was a very pretty woman before hers.

And I have not mentioned beauty once until this comment, but since you brought it up, Michelle is no beauty in the face herself. Her look comes from an all over put together look, not beauty. If you showed the pics of Michelle and Melania and took them to some hole in the wall where no one knew either, you know damn good and well Melania would win the beauty contest hands down. Michelle looks like a bull dog in the face half the time because of her underbite, and her rear view is hilarious.

You in. You brought out the ugly in me. I said up thread that I would never besmirch Michelle because I admire her and she does the most with what she has to work with. And she does. But, unfortunately you got under my skin here at the end, and so I did dishonor the last FLOTUS,

Congrats. I'm done. You sound oddly like the poster who soiled the entire thread about Heather Locklear with your insane ravings that she was a drug whore and no one should speak well of her. You called her plain and basic bitch.

Then you went on to speak about how beautiful and talented Whitney Houston was, and if people spoke badly about her for being a drug addict, then no one should speak well of Heather who was completely without redeeming qualities.

To the poster who said that Melania looked like Paulina Porizkova, that's a hard nyet. First of all, Paulina was a real model and a very successful one. Here's a picture of PP nude, just to show you how a real model does nude. Always tasteful, never cheap and tacky unlike Melania.

If Melania wants to tell the world that she was a model, then I would like to see some hard evidence. Catalogue model? Show me the catalogues. They don't exist.

There's no doubt that Melania was a pretty girl, and she had the right height for modeling. But, she is not versatile and has one facial expression, and her big surgically placed tits would have been detrimental for any fashion modeling.

Probably because she is much more substantive than just being a fashion plate. Michelle Obama made careers for unknown designers. She used her platform to definitely make advancements for causes that she believed in. She gave J. Crew new life. She inspired the average women that they too could afford many of her fashions. Maybe not everything but one or two pieces. A lot of fashion that Michelle Obama wore literally sold out as women rushed to buy the same items.

What Michelle Obama Wore and Why It Mattered

It began with Jay Leno.

It began, to be more specific, in October 2008, when Mr. Leno, the host of “The Tonight Show” at the time, turned to his guest, Michelle Obama, the wife of the Democratic nominee for president, and said — with glee, with gotcha expectation, because it had just been revealed that the campaign clothes budget for Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential candidate, was $150,000 — “I want to ask you about your wardrobe. I’m guessing about 60 grand? Sixty, 70 thousand for that outfit?”

“J. Crew,” Mrs. Obama said of her silk blouse, gold skirt and cardigan fastened with a big rhinestone brooch. “Ladies, we know J. Crew. You can get some good stuff online!”

And thus was an eight-year obsession born. Not to mention a new approach to the story of dress and power.

When Mrs. Obama understood the impact of that early answer — when she saw the public response to her outfit (which had been chosen specifically as a riposte to the Palin news) — it set in motion a strategic rethink about the use of clothes that not only helped define her tenure as first lady, but also started a conversation that went far beyond the label or look that she wore and that is only now, maybe, reaching its end.

Though amid discussion of legacy and historical change fashion may seem the least of the matter, consider the number of words devoted to what both the first lady and President Obama wore since the original campaign began. Consider that for five and a half years there was a blog chronicling Mrs. Obama’s wardrobe choices, arguably the first devoted to the clothes of a political figure, and that when Mr. Obama wore a tan suit to a news conference it practically broke the internet (ditto when he eschewed a tie). Consider that Mrs. Obama’s effect on fashion brands was the subject of a study by a New York University professor in the Harvard Business Review entitled “How This First Lady Moves Markets.”

Consider all that, and there is simply no ignoring the fact that during these two terms, clothing played a role unlike any it had ever played before in a presidential administration.

A noncomprehensive litany of some of the designers whose clothes the first lady wore during her husband’s two terms in office includes: Carolina Herrera, Narciso Rodriguez, Michael Kors, Maria Cornejo, Thom Browne, Isabel Toledo, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Marchesa, Tom Ford, Vera Wang, Tadashi Shoji, Cushnie et Ochs, Tory Burch, Naeem Khan, Brandon Maxwell, Rodarte, Bibhu Mohapatra, Zac Posen, Barbara Tfank, Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, Joseph Altuzarra, Tracy Reese, Monique Lhuillier, Thakoon, Christian Siriano, Calvin Klein, Sophie Theallet, Reed Krakoff, Diane von Furstenberg, Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler and Alice & Olivia. Also Talbots. And Target. And Ann Taylor. Sheesh.

Plus, of course: Gucci, Versace, Givenchy, Alaïa, Junya Watanabe, Christopher Kane, Roksanda, Moschino, Lanvin (those controversial expensive sneakers), Dries Van Noten, Alexander McQueen, Duro Olowu, Lanvin and Kenzo. To name a few.

It is, by any measure, an unprecedented list.

The twin conditions of the historic nature of this presidency and the fact it occurred alongside the rise of social media, which turned every public second into a shareable, comment-worthy moment, combined to create a new reality where every appearance mattered. Not everyone listened to all of the speeches or read the analysis or considered the context. But everyone paused for a moment to assess the visual. And a couple who had spent their entire lives being scrutinized as pioneers understood what that meant, and instead of bridling at it, leveraged it. If you know everyone is going to see what you wear and judge it, then what you wear becomes fraught with meaning. Certainly Mrs. Obama’s significance as a contemporary role model goes far beyond her image, but no one understood the role of fashion, and the potential uses of that, better than the first lady.

by Anonymousreply 217Last Sunday at 1:53 PM

“She realized very early on that everything she did had ramifications,” said Thom Browne, who made the tailored coat and dress Mrs. Obama wore for the inaugural parade in 2013, as well as a dress she wore to the 2012 Democratic National Convention and also during the final debate that year. And she understood, he went on, “that people did not just want to know how she looked, but what she was about,” and that she could plant subliminal cues to the latter with her clothes.

Change was the promise, and change was the look — far beyond the amount of upper arm on display, or the riot of color and prints. Or the cardigans.

Just because something appears trivial does not mean it is any less powerful as a means of persuasion and outreach. In some ways its very triviality — the fact that everyone could talk about it, dissect it, imitate it — makes fashion the most potentially viral item in the subliminal political toolbox. Talking heads complained early on in the second term about Mrs. Obama’s allowing the clothes conversation to dominate the substance conversation, but in fact she made the two inextricable.

There have been a lot of words since the 2016 election devoted to how Mrs. Obama loved fashion and fashion loved her in return, and that is true; to listen to designers who have dressed her is to hear a chorus of “it was the privilege of my career.” That the first lady, a Princeton-and-Harvard-educated lawyer and hospital power player, was publicly able to enjoy clothes allowed a swath of smart women to stop being so neurotic about dress (as she said to Vogue in her third cover story, the most of any first lady, one of the factors in choosing a garment always has to be, “Is it cute?”).

But her real contribution went far beyond giving women a license to like clothes and use them to celebrate their own strength and femininity. Just as, despite the attention paid to the study on how much the first lady was worth to a brand — “I have been publishing for 25 years,” said David Yermack, the author of the study and a professor of finance at the N.Y.U. Stern School of Business, “and nothing has compared to the interest in this” — it wasn’t ultimately about revenue generation. Indeed, despite Mrs. Obama’s patronage, a number of labels she wore have struggled financially, including J. Crew; Maria Pinto, which closed; and Bibhu Mohapatra, which filed for bankruptcy last week.

Rather, like first ladies from Jacqueline Kennedy to Nancy Reagan, Mrs. Obama understood that fashion was a means to create an identity for an administration. But unlike any other first lady, instead of seeing it as part of a uniform to which she had to conform, with the attendant rules and strictures that implies, she saw it as a way to frame her own independence and points of difference, add to her portfolio and amplify her husband’s agenda.

“Our glorious diversity — our diversities of faiths and colors and creeds — that is not a threat to who we are; it makes us who we are,” she said during her final speech, and the proof was, literally, on her back. While most first ladies turned to a small number of trusted designers to help them create their look (Oleg Cassini with Mrs. Kennedy; Adolfo and James Galanos with Mrs. Reagan; Oscar de la Renta with Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush) Mrs. Obama seemed to work with them all.

That is not a situation that, as any woman would know, happens by accident. We all tend to gravitate toward certain designers in part because of sheer laziness: We know what suits us, what we like, and so we go there first. To have been so, well, evenhanded in her choices could have happened only with careful calculation.

by Anonymousreply 218Last Sunday at 1:55 PM

We should start a DL investigation to uncover Melania’s old fashion modeling pictures. How can she keep up the “fashion model” scam when there are no damn pictures to prove that she’s ever worked as a model prior to meeting Trump?

Are the pictures in Kenya with President Obama’s birth certificate? How does she get away with this lie?

by Anonymousreply 219Last Sunday at 1:57 PM

“I am not sure people really realized the extent of what she was doing,” said Tracy Reese, whose custom-made pink and gold silk dress, worn by Mrs. Obama for her speech at the 2012 Democratic convention, became her best-selling dress when remade for sale, and whose black dress with big red poppies, worn by the first lady for the 50th anniversary of the 1963 march on Washington, is now on display at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture. “It was really about us all.”

Especially because Mrs. Obama not only wore their clothes, she also took their business seriously, framing fashion as a credible, covetable job choice during her education initiatives. She put fashion on a par with the movies by hosting a Fashion Education workshop at the White House, just as she had held a Careers in Film Symposium. She invited students to witness Jason Wu donating his first inaugural gown to the Smithsonian, and designers were occasionally included on the guest list for state dinners alongside officials, artists and executives — though no designer ever attended twice.

“She came in at a time when the economy was particularly tough and really shone a light on fashion in the broadest sense,” said Narciso Rodriguez, whose dress she wore on the night in 2008 that ushered in the Obama era, and recently at the National School Counselor of the Year event when she gave her last speech as first lady. If you think that was an accident, there’s a bridge I can sell you — just as the fact she wore Jason Wu to her husband’s farewell address in Chicago, a designer she also wore at both inaugural balls, was no coincidence. It was closure.

Mrs. Obama’s dress choices were often labeled “sartorial diplomacy” and “democratic,” and they were that; she made something of an art out of pairing designers with countries during state dinners or trips, wearing, for example, Mr. Khan, an Indian-American designer, to the India state dinner, and Mr. Ford, an American designer then based in London, when she dined with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Especially in her husband’s second term, Mrs. Obama used her leverage and visibility not only to raise the profile of a host of local designers (the biggest struggle for a young designer, Mr. Wu said, is attention; she solved that), but also as argument against isolationism and in support of allies across the world. It was not happenstance that she wore a Gucci gown to the Kennedy Center Honors the same day Italy went to the polls to vote on a referendum widely viewed as a verdict on Matteo Renzi, the country’s now former reformist prime minister.

But above all, her wardrobe was representative of the country her husband wanted to lead.

It was about the melting pot and the establishment; the 1 percent and the accessible. There was something in her closet for everyone, yet she was beholden to no designer — free of any specific allegiance to, or association with, a brand. She worked at a remove, through her aide Meredith Koop, and no designers contacted for this article said they knew when the clothes she bought would be worn (if they were for personal use she did buy them, though often at a discount; if they were for state occasions, they were donated by the designer and archived, either at the National Archives or a museum). They were not told in advance, and they found out at the same time everyone else did. It was a business relationship, not a personal one.

by Anonymousreply 220Last Sunday at 1:58 PM

Will it continue? To a certain extent both Samantha Cameron, the wife of the former British prime minister David Cameron, and the Duchess of Cambridge have taken a page from Mrs. Obama’s wardrobe book, swinging from high to low, working with a variety of London Fashion Week designers, and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau has done so in Canada. But according to Professor Yermack, who looked into the market response to both the Duchess of Cambridge and Carla Bruni Sarkozy, when she was first lady of France, “they had nowhere near the same effect.”

It may be because the point of what Mrs. Obama wore was never simply that it was good to mix up your wardrobe among a group of designers, but rather that clothes were most resonant when they were an expression of commitment to an idea, or an ideal, that had resonance. And maybe it shouldn’t really matter if anyone else in her position adopts the same approach. Each administration writes its own catechism, after all. Whether we follow is up to us.

Because the primary motivation is to beat the Obamas at and in everything! Is the basis for this racism? For many, yes. But. for many others it's this sports mentality attitude of "It's us versus them"

I posted the LONG NYT's article because I thought it was important that people understand the motivation and thinking behind the Obama White House. Also, the NYT has a fire wall now and many people wouldn't be able to access the article.

But, take a moment to remember all of the criticisms that the Obamas received. The right-wing were waiting like jackals to pounce upon them--especially Michelle's clothing choices. Remember the outrage over her $600 jacket (in the link)? However, the gal in the White House now wears a Dolce & Gabbana jacket that is $51K and you barely heard a peep.

I miss reading about the State Dinner For Children; the LGBT(A-Z) reception and dinner; and many, many, other events that included an average schmoe like me.

And, Mrs. Obama's clothing choices and the designers she used only amplified that attitude. As the DESIGNERS in the article noted;

“it was the privilege of my career.”

The thing about Michelle Obama is that she always looks to be enjoying herself, and what she is wearing seems (to me) to express that joy as well. As noted above by several posters, Michelle used her position as FLOTUS to give opportunities to many young designers. And she always exuded confidence, seeming not to give a rats' ass whether or not other people liked her fashion choices.

Melania, on the other hand, has a better figure than Michelle, but projects little confidence. And with good reason. Everything about her is dubious - her 'modeling' career, her citizenship, her marriage, and her husband's fraudulent presidency. One thing I find odd is that Melania often seems to favor low hemlines and bias cut skirts, which do not show off her figure so much as swath her in fabric. Her look is a throwback to the 50s, and I believe she is deliberately encouraged to dress this way to evoke nostalgia for what the deplorables consider the 'good old days.'

And, you're just looking for friends in order to keep this thread going. The fact is that the girl does nothing. Now, that's her right. She wouldn't be the FLOTUS that wasn't active. But, the problem is that it is a bad reflection upon Trump. Or, she is not bringing any value to Trump--and he needs it. STOP trying to make her into something that she is not.

This was a Nancy Reagan problem too. Therefore they created the "Just Say No" campaign for her. With this girl, they're still trying to find something that sticks and build some traction. It's definitely not her "Be Best" mess or her opioid campaign.

Or, the genuine love that they have for each other.

Interesting. I would not consider them the same dress.

R246, great dress, because we have not seen enough of Melania’s vagina yet.

Melania is comfortable in a thong and stilettos and nothing more.

Melania does not have a good body for high fashion. Those 36DDD tits are not made for haute couture, which is one reason why everything she wears looks cheap.

Yes, R255. With many of her outfits it's like; "Her lie my breasts".

Michelle has had some tragic outfits too, such as in the OP's photo

Okay... You didn't like it. That dress sold out within 24 hours. It's all about the numbers and the bottom line.

Some people don’t seem to understand that it’s not all about looking “good” as FLOTUS, it’s also about dressing appropriately for official occasions.

Melania doesn’t know how to dress appropriately and some of her fashion statements have been offensive. She has never been a fashion model, but she seems to think that every event she attends is some sort of imaginary Vogue photo shoot.

And 110 mm heels will never be appropriate when you visit any place after a natural disaster.

But, what gets me is how she, and the rest of the unwashed, are so upset because she is not receiving coverage and respect. Are they serious? This is the Palin effect all over again. It doesn't matter if she is smart or not. It doesn't matter if she has any good ideas or not. BUT, is she pretty?

I mean, c'mon.... She's a "trophy" wife. Accept it and move on.

R14.. Most of the time, when she modeled... she had her clothes off.

R260, that picture is so heavily retouched that it resembles an oil painting.

I don't find her pretty. Yes.. she has a look.. tall, shapely.. the long hair, made up.. the formula for trophy wives. She has a hard face, though... not that attractive to me.

Easy to sell out when they made three of them R258

The tawdry and sad story of Melania is that in fact she tried to be a model for years, particularly in Paris, and she failed. She may consider herself a model out of delusion, shame and pride. I know people in fashion in fashion who report she was around and trying trying trying any not getting bookings or agency rep. She switched to NY and also failed. She didn't give up after she met Trump. But he couldn't make it happen for her, nor could he make it happened for Ivanka. Also, she and he both have horrible taste. She settled for the faux billionaire (he personally was always rich enough, though bankrupted many versions of his companies) and did what HE wanted - the sleazy mens magazine. I dont think she EVER expected to be under the microscope like this when she made her compromises with the Orange turd.
