US Election results have come in and Donald Trump is the clear winner. However, a controversy has been stirred up with the resurfacing of Melania Trump’s nude photos. These photos were taken way earlier but are now causing ample embarrassment to the new First Lady.
The US Election results have led to intense speculation over Melania Trump’s role in the White House. She is anyway the first immigrant First Lady in history. However, several nude photos have now emerged again.
Melania did a nude photo shoot with another female model around three years before meeting future husband Donald Trump. The pictures were taken in Manhattan way back in 1996. Melania Knauss (her original surname) was then a professional model.
She went by Melania K as her modeling name. Ale de Basseville was the photographer for the shoot and many of these pictures came out in Max Magazine. Several other photographs were never printed but have now resurfaced again. Some of these can be seen here.
The photographs are quite racy and show Melania getting cozy with Emma Eriksson. However, Basseville talks of how the pictures represent beauty and are not meant to titillate. The shoot was held at a Chelsea apartment where Melania worked like a “true professional”.
Melania had come to New York after modeling in Milan and Paris back then. She did an advertisement for Camel cigarettes and other commercial assignments. Basseville also shot Melania in the nude from several angles.
What Donald Trump Had To Say
Donald Trump confirmed that these pictures were taken “prior to my knowing Melania”. He also added that such pictures were “very fashionable and common” in Europe. He also talked about how Melania did several photos shoots for leading magazines as a successful model.
Melania met Donald Trump in 1998 and married him in 2005. They have a 10-year-old son named Baron. She has been the hostess for Trump’s personal 727 jet and there are several racy photos from that period as well. You can see some more of these pictures here.
