Melania Trump was born as Melanija Knavs in Novo Mesto, Slovenia on April 26, 1970, and was later Germanized to Melania Knauss. Her father was a car salesman, and her mother was a children’s clothing designer. She would often appear in fashion shows for Jutranjka, her mother’s employer. She grew up in Sevnica with her sister Ines, and she has an unnamed half-brother. Melania and Ines were baptized as Catholics, despite Viktor’s membership in the League of Communists of Slovenia, which promoted state atheism. She attended the Secondary School of Design and Photography in Ljubljana and then enrolled at the University of Ljubljana to study design and architecture, but left after a year.
Melania began modelling at the age of five and began featuring in advertisements and posing for fashion photographer Stane Jerko at the age of sixteen. When she was 18, she signed with a Milan modelling agency and placed second in “Jana Magazine’s” 1992 “Look of the Year” competition.
Trump met Paolo Zampolli, co-owner of Metropolitan Models, in 1995 and offered her representation if she came to the United States. She lived in a Zeckendorf Towers apartment with photographer Matthew Atanian after moving to Manhattan the following year, thanks to an agreement made by Zampolli.

Melania initially argued that the article cost her “multimillion-dollar business relationships,” but she later changed her mind and revised the case to concentrate on her emotional distress. The case was settled for $2.9 million in April 2017 after the “Daily Mail” removed the claims contained in the report.
