“The Ogle Office”
August 1, 2016 – It’s not Donald but Melania Trump grabbing headlines this week after The NY Post released nude photos of the prospective First Lady, igniting another Trump-tinted media frenzy. The photos were from a 1995 photo shoot for a now-defunct French men’s magazine when the European-born, former college student was attempting to expand her modeling career. The New York Post cover story ran with the accompanying headline, “The Ogle Office.”
The monochromatic photos, some of which were published for the first time by the Post, show the then 25 year-old brunette in little more than a pair of pumps. Said one fashion professional who was present at the shoot:
“I was quite surprised when I saw the pictures because it was . . . a racier shoot than I expected.”
The infamous NY tabloid, which endorsed Trump’s presidential aspirations earlier in April of this year, is owned by Fox News media titan, Rupert Murdoch, causing some outlets to speculate about a potential political motive for releasing the images after so many years. A spokesperson for the Trump campaign attempted to downplay the controversy describing the photos to CNN’s “Reliable Sources” thusly:
“They’re a celebration of the human body as art,” Jason Miller, the Trump campaign’s senior communications adviser.
The reaction outside pundit circles has ranged from bemusement to anger. The release of the nudes marks the second media maelstrom involving the soft-spoken Slovenian in almost as many weeks after it was revealed that two passages from Mrs. Trump’s address at July’s Republican National Convention were conspicuously similar to passages from a 2008 speech by current FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.
Don’t worry, Donald Trump is fine with it https://t.co/Yk07CEnQ8t

While Trump may be fine with it many others are not, calling the publication of the photos unfair and out of bounds.
