Before Donald Trump mocked the Oscars and made fun of the award show's dwindling ratings, he attended the ceremony multiple times with his wife, Melania. Trump made his first appearance at the Academy Awards back in 2001 alongside then-girlfriend Melania Knauss. The high-profile red carpet outing came about three years into their romance. While Trump opted for a classic black tuxedo, his future wife opted for a figure-hugging white, sparkling gown with a plunging neckline.
