Why hasn't Melania Trump been on the cover of a magazine since becoming first lady?

Melania Trump fans are calling for the first lady to become a magazine cover star, with some tweeting her most glamorous photos. The issue was raised on Saturday when actor James Woods tweeted, “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month,” alongside a photo of the first lady wearing a strapless blue gown. On the surface, the first lady has enough cred to cover every fashion magazine on the newsstand. The former model from communist Slovenia worked in Milan and Paris before moving to the United States in 1996, where she scored covers for Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, and GQ. Another possible reason Melania doesn’t appear on covers stems from personal politics.
