After four years of shunning the most fashionable first lady in American history (tied with Jackie O), Vogue Magazine announced Tuesday they had returned to the White House to put First Lady Jill Biden on the cover. In the upcoming issue, which goes on sale July 20, Jill wears an Oscar de la Renta navy and floral dress as she leans on the balcony overlooking the South Lawn.
As America looks dully at Jill’s ensemble one could probably pick out in the grandma section at Target, we are reminded of overlooked former model and First Lady Melania Trump. Melania’s poise, beauty, and taste are incomparable to any first lady in recent memory. Yet, because Vogue Magazine, like so many others in the cultural left, suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome, they were incapable of looking past politics and focusing on fashion. Consequently, Melania never graced the cover of Vogue like Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and now Jill.
Vogue has a history of labeling powerful conservative women as unfashionable by purposely not showcasing them on their pages. If a conservative woman is featured in Vogue, you can bet it doesn’t have anything to do with fashion.
If you need any more proof Vogue cares more about politics than fashion, recall how Michelle Obama, who is unequivocally the least fashionable first lady in American history (one of her favorite labels was J.Crew), has been on the cover of Vogue three times, including once during the Trump presidency.
Fortunately, Melania never needed a Vogue cover feature to prove her sense of style. She was always dressed to represent America beautifully and tactfully in whatever foreign and domestic task she faced. As the New York fashion editors struggled to make Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris’ pantsuits look “in,” Melania’s impeccable style likely infuriated them just as much as her husband’s politics.
Even though Vogue can’t bring itself to recognize, as they say in their mission statement, “high-quality fashion [and] beauty,” that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t. Here are Melania Trump’s top 10 greatest fashion moments:
