For her father’s first address to a joint session of Congress, Ivanka Trump took off her choker and bright red blazer that she wore to the White House earlier on Tuesday and changed into yet another youthful look.
For the evening, the first daughter opted for a magenta dress from French fashion designer Roland Mouret, which retails for $2,995 (approximately £2,418). From the brand’s Resort 2017 collection, the Rawlings Dress in orchid pink, is, according to the product’s description, “an easy choice for that evening affair when you think you have ‘nothing to wear’” and the flourishes also make it the “‘It’ dress for nighttime soirees. The design features an asymmetric neckline with a black spaghetti strap.
Trump, who moved to Washington, D.C. following President Donald Trump’s inauguration and has been an active member in his administration, shared an image of herself at the White House with her husband, Jared Kushner, before heading to the Capitol building.

The tweet received nearly 10,000 hearts in less than an hour. However, while it was warmly received by many — “very nice” and “gorgeous” were among some of the many comments — others were confused.

Social media took note of the fact that Ivanka’s seemingly able to flaunt her arms and shoulders at the Capitol without controversy whereas former first lady Michelle Obama was criticized for doing the same.
Remember all that crap about Michelle Obama showing her arms & if it was appropriate? Well, behold Ivanka and her shoulders. ????????♀️ https://t.co/eqLrc7misg

Ivanka’s stepmother was subjected to a similar critique for her £7,749 sequined skirt suit ensemble. Melania Trump’s Michael Kors ensemble was called “inappropriate” for the function and more fit a New Year’s Eve party or “da club.”
