Melania Trump in 2001

All the times Melania Trump stunned at the Oscars

Before she was the first lady of the United States, Melania (Knauss) Trump was a New York socialite and model with a millionaire husband. And as most celebrities do, the couple delighted in attending Hollywood’s biggest night, the Oscars, and Oscar parties.

When attending Academy Awards parties, the Trumps maintained an elegant and refined style. Melania often chose blush and simple, delicate gowns. She accessorized the designer dresses with stunning jewelry and flawless makeup. Donald often kept it simple with a black tuxedo.

From loose locks to classic updos, take a trip down memory lane to admire all the looks that FLOTUS rocked at the Oscars, pre-White House.
