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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
