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.”

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
