Ivanka Trump was the picture of elegance and style as she left her home on Tuesday morning, wearing a blue lace designer dress – and a wide smile on her face.
The 35-year-old stepped out of the D.C. property she shares with husband Jared and their three children shortly before 10am, before making her way to the Smithsonian, where she hosted a summer reading event with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Clearly aware that all eyes were going to be on her – not least because her husband Jared is facing another day of questioning over his Russia contacts – Ivanka put on an incredibly stylish show, turning the front steps of her home into her own personal catwalk.
Ivanka was modeling a $900 lace design by designer Jonathan Simkhai, which features an asymmetrical hemline, and several shades of white and blue lace, as well as a plunging neckline that showed off her bare decolletage.
She completed her pretty ensemble with a pair of nude high heels – from her eponymous Ivanka Trump fashion line – and a pair of dainty dangly earrings, leaving her neck and wrists bare.
In a rare move, however, the First Daughter chose to wear her wedding ring, perhaps as a show of support for her husband Jared, 36, who faced questioning from the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday, and is meeting privately with the US House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday as the probe into his undisclosed Russian contacts continues.
But any stress that Ivanka may be feeling certainly wasn’t showing as she stepped out on Tuesday – having had an early morning visit from her glam squad, who ensured that she was looking her very best in time for the reading event.
With her hair in a chic up-do, Ivanka opted to go without the sunglasses that she has been modeling almost every morning of late, instead choosing to show off her beautiful make-up look, which featured a nude lip and a subtle smokey eye.
Beaming at the cameras as she made her way down the front steps of her house, she looked every inch the successful businesswoman, event pausing to wave at the photographers before climbing into her waiting SUV.
Indeed, throughout the ongoing controversy surrounding her husband, Ivanka has kept her head up, and yesterday sought some happy comfort in the form of her children.
On Monday morning, Ivanka took to Instagram to share a very happy image of her eldest child Arabella, who turned six last Monday, and her youngest son Theodore, one, who appeared to have covered his face in yogurt while enjoying his breakfast. But despite the mess, both children were grinning happily at the camera – with Arabella donning a smart straw boater hat for the occasion, while her brother was wearing some giraffe-print shades.
‘Good way to start the day!’ Ivanka captioned the cute picture, before adding a sunglasses smiley, no doubt in reference to her son’s rather unique early morning ensemble.
Pairing his sunglasses with a silver spotted bib – a sensible addition to his look given the messy mass of breakfast foods covering his face – Theo can be seen beaming happily at the camera, while his sister Arabella, dressed in a white T-shirt and shorts, looks equally thrilled to pose for the picture.
