Melania's seriously beautiful reaction to Donald Trump captured in viral video

First Lady Melania Trump was absolutely thrilled to be in attendance at her husband President Donald Trump's inauguration at the weekend.

She smiled. She nodded. She clapped. And then her husband turned his back and a look washed over her face that's hard to articulate. A look that now has people wondering what she was really thinking.

In a clip that's doing the rounds, the First Lady and her billionaire fella are surrounded by the crowd on inauguration day - which fell just one day after their 12-year wedding anniversary.

Melania can be seen staring at her husband with a wide smile. But when he turns around, her entire face drops. The corners off her mouth droop to a grimace before she purses her lips. Her cheekbones fall and her eyes darken before they drop to the floor. A look washes over her face similar to the one when you almost throw up at Sunday brunch after a big night out. It's not relief - more just sour disappointment that you have no one specific to blame for your current situation.

When the clip first started getting shared online, there was speculation it must have been altered in some way - slowed down or reversed - to exaggerate the wonderful high of Melania's low. But it is indeed authentic.

Other clips have surfaced showing the moment from wider angles.

And even from different angles, the rate at which Melania's spirits fall as her husband turns away is telling.

The reaction is so beautiful it should be wrapped up and preserved in a Tiffany & Co gift box.
