The First Lady is often mocked and brutally savaged online by critics and across varying publications. As a former model, most people would expect Melania to be highly regarded by those in the fashion industry.
However, when former editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour was repeatedly asked questions about the FLOTUS at an event by journalists, her response was unexpected.
Author Doug Wead made the revelation in his upcoming book ‘Inside Trump’s White House’ in a chapter dedicated to Melania.
He said: “Sometimes the mean-spirited snub of Melania Trump bordered on schoolgirl immaturity.
“At a 2017 event, Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, ignored repeated questions about the beautiful and fashionable First Lady, Melania Trump, and insisted peevishly that Michelle Obama was ‘was the best ambassador this country could possibly have in many ways, obviously, way beyond fashion.’”

Ms Wintour refused to talk about Melania’s fashion sense during a podcast but instead chose to talk about former FLOTUS Michelle.
However, despite the harsh move, Melania has remained a big fan of Michelle, according to Mr Wead.
He said in his book: “Melania has been impressed with Mrs Obama.
“After their first meeting, President Trump had tweeted, ‘Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!’
