It’s Donald Trump as you’ve never seen him before: with a full head of curly flaxen hair.

The GOP frontrunner wears a powdered wig, cravat and waistcoat on the Sept. 21 cover of “New York” magazine, accompanied by the headline “Donald Trump Is Saving Our Democracy” and a cover story by Frank Rich.

Trump’s getup was popular for nearly two centuries, beginning in 18th century France with King Louis XIV.
