Early Life  

On April 26, 1970, Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto, Yugoslavia, which is now a part of modern Slovenia. Her father, Viktor Knavs, was in charge of the motorbike and car divisions of a government-owned automaker. He was from the nearby village of Radee. Her mother, Amalija, was a patternmaker for children’s apparel at Jutranjka in Sevnica. She was from the Raka village. When Melanija was a small girl, she and other kids whose parents worked at the company took part in fashion displays that showcased children’s clothing. She also has an artistic older sister named Ines and a brother from a prior relationship with her father that she doesn’t seem to have ever met.

Knavs was reared in a modest flat inside of a housing complex in Sevnica, in the Lower Sava Valley. Her father supported atheism as the official state religion as a member of Slovenia’s League of Communists. Yet as was customary, he secretly had his daughters christened as Catholics. When Pope Francis and Melania Trump met at the Vatican in 2017, Melania asked him to bless her rosary.

When Melania was a teen, her family relocated to a two-story house in Sevnica. When she was a high school student, she lived in a high-rise apartment in Ljubljana. Before departing, she spent a year studying architecture and design at the University of Ljubljana, where she also attended a secondary school for design and photography.


After appearing for Slovenian fashion photographer Stane Jerko when she was five years old, Melania began doing commercial work when she was sixteen years old. When she began working as a model, she changed her last name from Knavs in Slovene to Knauss in German. At the age of 18, she joined an Italian modeling agency. In 1992, she finished second in the “Look of the Year” competition held by the Ljubljana-based Jana Magazine, which granted its top three finalists contracts with foreign modeling agencies.

Melania moved to Paris and Milan to work as a model for fashion companies after spending a year in Ljubljana, Slovenia, for academic purposes. In 1995, while he was on a scouting trip around Europe, she met Paolo Zampolli, a friend of Donald Trump and the co-owner of Metropolitan Models. She was advised to travel to the US by Zampolli, who allegedly wanted to represent her there. In 1996, she moved to Manhattan. He arranged for her to share a residence with photographer Matthew Atanian at the Zeckendorf Towers in Union Square.

The now-defunct French men’s magazine Max published an explicit photo shoot featuring Melania and another female model, Emma Eriksson, for the January 1996 issue. Photographer Alexandre Ale de Basseville photographed the scene. Moreover, she participated in a nud* photo shoot for the January 2000 UK issue of GQ magazine, appearing on the cover decked out in nothing but diamond jewelry and relaxing on fur before taking off in Trump’s specially adapted Boeing 727. When asked about the photos in 2016, Donald Trump replied, “Melania was one of the most successful models, and she did many picture shoots, including for covers and huge publications.”

In 2010, Melania Timepieces & Jewelry, her own jewelry line, started selling on QVC. She also advertised a Melania Marks Skin Care Collection in upmarket department stores. Her businesses earned royalties in the range of US$ 15,000 and US$ 50,000 in 2016, according to a financial report. In 2017, the two companies that made her jewelry and skin care products under license announced that they had stopped working with her. On the day of the inauguration, her businesses and products were first included in her official White House biography, but they were quickly removed. According to a White House representative, her businesses are no longer active, and “the First Lady has no intention of using her position for profit. In 2021 she launched a non-fungible token endeavor.

Let them fall once in a while… Be their friend and parent as well. When they’re in trouble, they will come to you first. Don’t try to change their opinion.”
