I'm putting this here because it's "uncanny" how this NFT project to raise funds "echoed" immediately my suggestion for the circus, after Stephanie created a fundraising perfume. Here's Vanity Fair:
"(...) many people’s initial response was “What?” When had the former first lady ever expressed an iota of interest in blockchain technology? Why was she flooding the universe with portraits of her chilling gaze? What…was happening?
Of course, we quickly realized that the whole thing made perfect sense, as it was another classic Trump grift. For one thing, as The Independent wrote at the time, it was (and remains) “unclear exactly what value investors in the NFT are getting for their money.” For another, though a press release noted that a portion of the proceeds from the sale would “assist children aging out of the foster care system by way of economic empowerment and with expanded access to resources needed to excel in the fields of computer science and technology,” Melania and company did not say exactly how big that portion will be, and the former first lady’s office chose not to respond to The Washington Post’s questions about the actual figure. In other words, it’s entirely possible a significant portion of the proceeds could go to directly to Melania Trump, which would be in keeping with Donald Trump’s outlook on charity, which has historically involved bold claims “that don’t always add up” and “persistently illegal conduct.”
Tatler revisited Stéphanie's style over the years. I think she broke the mold of the Stepfordian Hollywood Barbie stereotype and embraced the androgynous 80s & 90s where strong girls could wear heels too. Look at the Bond girls then too. You were not your bust size back then and you could be romantic, complex and sexual without being blunt. I think that's why the kids today like that era.
I'm addicted to this blog who filters the wildest gossip mag headlines 😄 Here, Stephanie is abandoning CC in her hour of need because she's turning her attention to a race. Haven't they heard of texting??
That Gossip aggregator site says Stephanie had an alarming incident a few years ago, regarding her SUV on Île Maurice that could have been very dangerous. 😳 Considering anything of that nature could ignite PTSD or at the very least rattle her, that's just awful. 2017 is when it happened. I can't imagine why anyone would tamper with her car. Really low. Is that the year the son-in-law killed Mrs Pastor or something? I have to check. The same site mentions the Halliday/Pastor couple's troubles a lot. 🤔
Stéphanie en famille at the circus to see Ukrainians perform. I like Gabriella's outfit a lot actually. Jacques too, but she looks really well put together. They're growing fast. The twins seem to have opposite demeanors where she's kind of static and he's displaying a range of emotions. Jacques tries to smile. Even Stéphanie seems unconvinced of the whole thing, though it's no doubt meant to entertain the kids and take some stress away. Personally, I wouldn't put them through more photo ops right now. They're trying but it's not easy when you're not happy.
