the last book I ever read (The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, excerpt nine)

from The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump by Mary Jordan:

She laid out her story: She was born and raised in a small town. At nineteen, she won a contest at Rome Cinecittà film studios. She left the architecture program at the University of Ljubljana before the end of her first year of studies to pursue modeling. She had lived in Milan, the Paris, and “for the past two years, my address is on Park Avenue in New York City.”

At times, her story seemed to veer into exaggeration or pure confection. She described a luxurious life as one of the highest-paid models in the world and added that she was “among the top 50” internationally, according to multiple articles published right after the press conference. “I know some of the top models personally, as well as other famous personalities, like Elton John, Jon Bon Jovi,” Melania said. “Sometimes we get together, or we see one another at various events.” The Vienna office of Elite models was representing her, she said, and “other big agencies are trying to get me. People all over the world know my name and my work.”
