Mrs Trump posted the photo on social media on Tuesday after hosting a lavish New Year’s Eve ball at Mar-a-Lago in
The First Lady’s selfie had a glittery 2019 social media filter emblazoned across it.
She posted just one photo to mark the New Year but several guests at the glamorous Mar-a-Lago party shared their own photos of the First Lady.
First Lady Melania Trump has marked the New Year by posting a rare, close-up selfie of herself
Melania was dressed in a long-sleeved sparkly v-neck black dress and her son Barron was spotted wearing a black tuxedo during the event.
Amanda Ungaro, the model wife of United Nations Ambassador of The Commonwealth of Dominica, Paolo Zampolli, shared a photo of herself posing with Melania during the event.
She also shared an Instagram story of Melania chatting animatedly at a dinner table before panning to a smiling Barron.
Among the other attendees posting photos was conservative Charlie Kirk.
He also shared a selfie with Melania and his Instagram story featured a series of videos with Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.
President Trump has spent most of his New Year’s Eves over the last decade at Mar-a-Lago but opted to spend the end of 2018 at the White House instead.

He wished the country a happy new year in a Twitter video with a self-pitying reminder that he’ll be ringing in 2019 at the White House instead of at Mar-a-Lago with Melania as was previously planned.
‘While I’m at the White House working you’re out there partying tonight, but I don’t blame you,’ Trump said in the 11-second video.
‘Enjoy yourselves, we’re going to have a great year. Have a really, really happy new year.’
Trump followed that tweet up with a string of posts about the border wall – which is the reason he’s spent the holidays alone.

The president cancelled his trip to Mar-a-Lago amid the government shutdown that began December 21 when Democrats refused to put the $5billion Trump wants to fund the wall into the Congressional budget.
The president was originally supposed to spend 16 days over the holidays at his Florida estate.
Melania returned to the White House for Christmas Eve and to join her husband on his visit to see U.S. troops in Iraq.
She flew back to Florida on Thursday to be with their 12-year-old son Barron.
This year, tickets for the lavish New Year’s Eve event cost $1,000 for club guests and $650 for club members, up from $750 and $600, according to the Palm Beach Post.
