    Melania Trump is one of the most talked about people in the world, and from her controversial fashion choices to her rules within the White House walls, she never fails to make viral news.

    Well, unsurprisingly, the festive period has been no exception.

    In fact from baffling the internet with her red gloves to being the focus of a viral meme seeing her tall red Christmas trees turned into characters from the Handmaid’s Tale, she has been one of the most divisive figures over the holidays.

    This week, Melania made news again, shocking everyone with her New Year’s Eve appearance. And surprise, surprise – it was all about her wardrobe choices.

    No, don’t worry, there were no jackets with offensive slogans or huge white hats involved – the shock in question was about the colour of her clothes.

    Despite making a tradition out of wearing pink on New Year’s Eve, Melania surprised everyone by opting for a black number this year, with some speculating that it could even be a political warning.

    Melania wore the black long-sleeved gown to her New Year celebrations at Mar-a-Logo, posing for photographs with friends.

    ‘Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!,’ she posted alongside a black and white snap of herself.

    What does it all mean?
