Why Is Melania Trump Eating Jewelry on a Magazine Cover?

It’s being called strange for more than one reason.

The latest cover of Vanity Fair’s Mexico edition shows first lady Melania Trump in a strange situation indeed — sitting at a table with a bowl of jewelry, fork in hand as if to eat the baubles.

Presumably the scene is a play on the Trumps’ wealth and extravagance. But many found the timing of the cover even stranger than the pose, given the current controversy over President Donald Trump’s plan for a wall along the Mexico border.

Business Insider explains that after Vanity Fair tweeted the cover image, commenters unleashed a “torrent of animosity,” with sentiments such as, “Apologize to Mexico for this stupidity.”

The image and article were actually repurposed from GQ, which shares a parent company with Vanity Fair, Business Insider explains.

 

Among the subjects addressed in the feature are Melania Trump’s plans to “become the new Jackie Kennedy.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
