  • Actress and model Louise Linton married US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin this June.
  • Linton has gained attention due to public fights via her Instagram comments.
  • Most recently, she was the subject of criticism after a photo of her holding a sheet of newly printed $1 bills circulated on social media.

   

Louise Linton, wife of US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, was in the spotlight well before her involvement with Washington insiders.

An actress and model from Edinburgh, Scotland, Linton married Mnuchin in an extravagant ceremony in June. She most recently made headlines after she and Mnuchin were photographed holding up a sheet of freshly printed $1 bills. The photos drew attention and criticism on Twitter, as well as a write-up in the Styles section of The New York Times, which critiqued her all-black leather outfit. 

Earlier this year she caused news when she published an Instagram photo that showed her and Mnuchin stepping off a government jet, adding the caption: "Great #daytrip to #Kentucky!" She tagged several high-end designers, including Tom Ford and Valentino, in the post. The resulting comments were less than charitable; Linton then bashed one commenter for being "adorably out of touch" and made her Instagram account private for a period of time. She has since made the account public again

But the jet photo and ensuing comments were not the first time Linton sparked a controversy. Below, see more about her life.
