She went by Melania K back then, as her maiden name is Knauss.
French photographer Alé de Basseville took the photos in 1995 for a magazine that no longer exists.
From the New York Post:
The bombshell photos show Melania wearing nothing but high heels and pouting for the camera, in a series of images shot from the front, the back and the side.
“Melania was super-great and a fantastic personality and she was very kind with me,” de Basseville told The Post, adding the former model never once felt uncomfortable posing for the nude pictures.
The photographer got along fine with her.
“I was quite surprised when I saw the pictures because it was a racier shoot than I expected,” said a fashion-industry insider who was present for one of the photo sessions.
“But Melania seemed very comfortable with the whole thing, and she was very professional.”Trump's reaction to the photos?
“Melania was one of the most successful models and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines. This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”The reaction from feminists will be interesting. They tell us my body, my choice when it comes to abortion. There already is this.
