Melania Trump poses in the White House for her first portrait as first lady. (White House)

Melania Trump's first official portrait was unveiled. And it's a total glamour shot.


The White House unveiled the first official portrait of Melania Trump as first lady on Monday. 

In the soft-focused photo, Trump is looking directly into the camera and is posed with her arms crossed. She's pictured wearing an all black outfit with two large rings on both hands.

"I am honored to serve in the role of First Lady, and look forward to working on behalf of the American people over the coming years," Trump said in a press release from the White House.

The White House also released a biography detailing Trump's modeling career, which began when she was just 16 years old. 

It goes on to list some of the top photographers Trump has worked with in the fashion industry, as well as the magazine covers and layouts she was featured throughout her career. 

The bio also notes that Trump initially began pursuing a degree atUniversity of Ljubljana in Slovenia before pausing her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris. 

Portraits of the first lady aren't typically controversial, but Michelle Obama's 2009 portrait caused an uproar because she wore a sleeveless dress. 

Some said the dress was too informal for an official White House portrait, which could be why Trump chose to cover her arms.
