Model Christine Teigen, known to be a vocal critic of current US President Donald Trump and his administration, has shared the result of a makeover, which made her look like her arch-enemy’s wife, Melania, as she claimed on Twitter.
“I..I look like melania [sic],” John Legend’s wife, who is also a television personality and author, noted in the caption to a short video, which pictured her trying to mimic the FLOTUS’ facial expression.

Her take on the resemblance with the first lady was not unanimously shared online. Some even branded her claim “an insult” to Melania Trump.
Too bad you don’t have her beautiful heart! This is an insult to Melania!!— Melanie Smith (@melaniecsmith65) December 7, 2019
If she had botched collagen injections and gained a 100 pounds or so...— Vance🇺🇸 (@Vance444) December 8, 2019
I'm... I'm so sorry. Is there someone I can call for you?— Charles. Just Charles. (@rev_chas) December 7, 2019
That would require class Chrissy.— 💝🙏🏼🇺🇸 #MAGA #TRUMP2020 (@RealityGoneWild) December 8, 2019
The First Lady is Beautiful and Graceful. You don’t have either— Marianggh7 (@marianggh7) December 8, 2019
You tried. It just wasn't possible.— Matt (@MatthewMaryland) December 7, 2019
However, others seemed quite pleased and even suggested that she could cash in on the effort.
You could be one of her many stand ins. I’m convinced she hasn’t actually been around Trump in the last 3 years.— Stephanie Powers⭐️⭐️ (@StephRaePowers) December 7, 2019
Now you get to go on SNL and play her— Justin Kenta Welch (@JustinKWelch) December 7, 2019
Teigen has a history of spats with the US president, which includes a vicious exchange and blocking on Twitter. In September, Trump blasted her husband, Grammy-winning singer John Legend, as “boring” and Teigen as “filthy-mouthed”, although not directly tagging her - after Legend appeared on NBC Nightly News to discuss the US criminal justice system and praise the reform group FreeAmerica founded by him.
The president had seemingly been vexed at not getting due credit for the passage of criminal justice reform legislation. She responded swiftly, firing back that he was a “p***y a** b****.”
