IN­SIDE THE BELT­WAY

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - BY JENNIFER HARPER

Trump’s in­au­gu­ra­tion, and here is what she found.

“Dur­ing her ten­ure as first lady, Me­la­nia has only graced one magazine cover — Van­ity Fair Mex­ico — in Fe­bru­ary 2017. At the time, the cover caused a com­mo­tion due to the pres­i­dent’s in­sis­tence that Mex­ico pay for a bor­der wall, some­thing that has yet to come to fruition,” Ms. Steigrad writes.

“Re­gard­less, not one Amer­i­can magazine has put the for­mer model on its cover, although ru­mors did swirl in De­cem­ber 2016 when Anna Win­tour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, paid a visit to Trump Tower,” she con­tin­ues, not­ing that there was noth­ing to the chat­ter.

“But Win­tour, an Obama fundraiser, did pull out all the stops for Michelle Obama when she served as first lady from 2009 to 2017. Dur­ing Barack Obama’s eight-year pres­i­dency, Michelle ap­peared on at least 30 U.S. magazine cov­ers, three of which were Vogue. She also ap­peared twice on the cov­ers of Essence magazine, Time magazine, More magazine and Glam­our magazine. Other cov­ers in­cluded Red­book, In­Style, and Radar,” Ms. Steigrad said.
