Let the fashion face-offs begin. Ivanka Trump and her stepmother, Melania Trump, both made appearances at several pre-inaugural events. The grades are in, and Ivanka is the winner of the first round, while poor Melania made a fashion faux pas. Early Thursday morning, Ivanka Trump turned heads as she painted New York’s skyline green. The future first daughter stepped out in an emerald green dress and matching coat. She completed the envious green look with a pair of nude shoes from her eponymous clothing line that is priced at $135 and a pair of surprising cat-eye sunglasses.
The businesswoman was accompanied by her husband, Jared Kushner; their three children – 4-year-old Arabella, Joseph, 2, and Theodore, 11 months. Ivanka Trump joined the rest of her family, President-elect Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Melania Trump, Tiffany Trump, and others during a somber wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
Social media has been on fire wondering, where is Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump? Why is he skipping all of the events? During the ceremony, the former reality TV personality and fashion model stood out with her stunning green coat.
According to fashion experts, she looked elegant and ready to embrace all things linked to the color green such as money, nature, and good fortune. Whereas Melania Trump, who opted for a military-style coat by Norisol Ferrari and a large and dramatic pair of Gucci sunglasses just blended in with the other family members.
Social media slammed the former European model for her decision to apparently be disrespectful by keeping her glasses on during the event. Others called her an elitist who did not understand the importance of the role of a first lady.
Here are few comments from Twitter: “@MELANIATRUMP Can’t bother to take off her sunglasses when visiting the #TombOfTheUnknowns.”
“Is Melania Trump part of secret service? Shouldn’t she have taken off her sunglasses?!?!? No one told her?”
This first fashion round foretells what is to come – Ivanka, who is moving to Washington, DC with her husband and their kids will be in the spotlight making deals and pushing policies. Saturday morning, Melania will fly back to New York and return to her role as mom.
