Fifteen years ago we profiled Donald Trump’s then-girlfriend Melania Knauss. Now his wife, Melania featured in our naked profile shoot on his customised Boeing 727 wearing handcuffs, wielding diamonds and holding a chrome pistol (it was the lads mag era after all). It makes for some interesting reading today, considering Donald Trump’s success in the US election…
We were bombarded by requests to shoot Melania,” GQ editor Dylan Jones recalled, when asked by The Hollywood Reporter about our January 2000 nude shoot with Melania Trump, after we had dug through the archives and published the images online in March 2016. “And so, given that she was obviously so keen to be featured in GQ, we came up with a rather kitsch and camp story for her to feature in.” Donald Trump also requested that photographs be delivered to his office. “We framed the cover and a selection of prints and sent them as soon as we could.”
Now you know the back story, scroll down to see the images that were originally published in the January 2000 issue of British GQ.
