Melania Trump Has Nailed The Same Facial Expression In Every Photo For 17 Years

What is happening here?

Step aside, Donald Trump and your never-changing hair.

There’s something else in the Trump family that has gone largely unchanged over the years, and we must discuss: the expression on Melania Trump’s face.

As Melania prepared to speak at the Republican National Convention on Monday, we did some photo research. And it seems that in the 17 years since she met Trump, the look on her face has stayed exactly the same. Whether with Donald or without, hanging out with Lil’ Kim, on red carpets or sitting front row at fashion week, there is no situation in which the 46-year-old shows any sign of age, emotion or teeth, for that matter.

The distinct look ― eyes a bit squinted, lips slightly pursed, always looking just a teeny bit angry ― is one thing, but it’s her actual face: Seemingly unchanged in 17 years, that blows our minds. Mrs. Trump has publicly slammed Botox, but let’s face it, folks: The United States’ potential first lady has a face carved from marble.

Perhaps it’s her now defunct, caviar-infused skincare line. Or maybe it’s her years of modeling and honing her craft over many a red carpet appearance. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying her smizing prowess.

Need proof? Behold, 17 years of Melania and her perfectly posed face taking the world by storm.
