Melania Trump

Since we republished the photographs of Melania Knauss in early 2016 – featuring the then-girlfriend of Donald Trump appearing scantily dressed on the wing of his private Boeing 727, wielding a silver M1911 pistol – the photo shoot has been ever-present in the US national consciousness. It sparked a vicious argument between Republican candidate Ted Cruz and Trump; was Googled tens of millions of times by curious Americans; and ended up on the list of things that Melania Trump is most proud of on her White House biography page as First Lady of the United States.

Melania Trump – the First Lady in our nude photo shoot

By GQ

Sixteen years ago we profiled Donald Trump’s then-girlfriend Melania Knauss. Now his wife, Melania featured in our naked profile shoot on his customised Boeing 727 wearing handcuffs, wielding diamonds and holding a chrome pistol (it was the lads mag era after all). It makes for some interesting reading today, considering Donald Trump’s success in the US election…

We were bombarded by requests to shoot Melania,” GQ editor Dylan Jones said when asked about our January 2000 nude shoot with Melania Trump, after we had dug through the archives and published the images online in March 2016. “Given that she was obviously so keen to be featured in GQ, we came up with a rather kitsch and camp story for her to feature in.” Donald Trump also requested that photographs be delivered to his office. “We framed the cover and a selection of prints and sent them as soon as we could.”

It appears the First Lady is ra ther proud of the images: the new White House website lists the cover shoot as one of her greatest achievements. Recently it has become a source of controversy as questions are raised over how Melania secured her US visa.

There was a time when the Mile High Club was a stand-up organisation. The price of entry was a stolen moment in the cramped and hardly seductive surroundings of a 747 loo, and the penalties for being caught were harsh. Which is a shame when you consider the undeniable frission travelling at 30,000 feet adds to any assignation. Now airlines have wised-up, with Virgin Atlantic offering double beds to its Upper Class passengers. But if you’re going to get that all-important upgrade, then you’re going to have to join the jet set. And there are rules.

Enter high-spirited Donald Trump to show us how it’s done. The billionaire New York property magnate, Reform Party presidential candidate and proud owner of this custom-fitted 727 (even the seat buckles are 18-carat gold) is an expert in the art of in-flight entertainment. And his personal hostess, 26-year-old Slovenian supermodel Melania Knauss, might just end up as the next First Lady. Flight of fancy? Not if The Donald has his way.

Heavyweight political commentators may scoff, but the delectable Miss Knauss is relishing the prospect of a future pressing the flesh on state occasions. “I will put all my effort into it, and I will support my man,” she said recently.

“She’s popular, she’s brilliant, she’s a wonderful woman,” says Trump with uncharacteristic understatement. And who are we to disagree? Not only does she manage to keep a man fabled for his erections (the latest is the Trump World Tower on New York’s First Avenue) on the right flight path, but she’s also fluent in four languages. Very handy for those summit meetings.

“I’m going to do everything I can do see that regular Americans can fly as high as their wings will take them,” says Trump. He’s got our vote.
