Ivanka Trump spoke in the Roosevelt Room a the White House on Friday, during an announcement about 5G network deployment. And, while the focus was on the work that the adviser to the President Donald Trump was carrying out, some fans of her fashion choices took a closer look at the outfit she’d picked out for the occasion. The 37-year-old wore a black, white and red colour-block wool dress.
It is from the Michael Kors Collection, and is no longer available to buy on the website Net-A-Porter.
The dress itself costs $1,247.50 via the site, which works out at around £954.
The midi dress had a round neck and a black buckled belt at the waist.
During the day, she was spotted leaving her Washington DC home in the outfit.
Ivanka teamed it with a black leather shoulder bag.
It was her Loewe’s ‘Hammock’ bag, which sells for £1,495.
She finished the ensemble with a pair of sunglasses and black court shoes.
While Ivanka pulled off the look in her own way, the dress itself is clearly very popular amongst some of the world’s most famous faces.
Last year, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, 47, wore the same dress.
The royal teamed it with open-toe black high heels.
Today, Ivanka was pictured attending a meeting with women from the coffee industry during her visit to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Here, she discussed the empowerment of women in the Ethiopian coffee industry, as part of her visit to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP).
The initiative aims to train women worldwide, in order to help them secure well-paying jobs.
Across the world, women earn approximately 77 per cent of what men earn, U.N. Women reported, excluding self-employment income.
Another shocking statistic revealed by U.N. Women reveals that of the Fortune 500 CEOs, only five percent of them are women.
The relationship Melania and Ivanka share has made headlines recently.
With just 11 years between them, some people may wonder whether the pair, who both serve in Donald Trump’s presidential administration, get on.
Ivanka’s mother, Ivana Trump, spoke about how she thought her daughter was amicable with her step-mother.
“She likes her fine,” the 70-year-old told The Atlantic.
Donald Trump is a father-of-five.
He shares his three eldest children, Donald Trump Jr, 41, Ivanka, and Eric Trump, 35, with Ivana.
The US President is also dad to Tiffany Trump, now 25, from his marriage to Marla Maples.
Melania and Donald welcomed son Barron Trump, now 12, into the world back in 2006, a year after they wed.
Ivanka Trump: Five facts about Donald Trump’s daughter
Ivanka is not, in fact, her real name. She actually shares her mother’s name Ivana.
Explaining why she is known as Ivanka in a 2010 tweet, she said: “In Czech, Ivanka is the baby name for Ivana, like Bobby is to Robert.”
Ivanka was well known to the American public before her father became President thanks to appearances on TV.
She made short cameos on Project Runway and Gossip Girl, as well as becoming a primary boardroom member on The Apprentice with Donald.

Barron Trump served as ring bearer, as Ivanka wore a custom Vera Wang gown accessorised with diamonds from her fine jewellery collection.
Ivanka was raised as a Presbyterian Christian, but converted to Judaism to allow her to marry Jared Kushner.
Ivanka studied with Elie Weinstock from the Modern Orthodox Ramaz School, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City.
She now keeps kosher and observes the Jewish Sabbath. Ivanka said in the February 2015 edition of Vogue: “We’re pretty observant… It’s been such a great life decision for me… I really find that with Judaism, it creates an amazing blueprint for family connectivity.
“From Friday to Saturday we don’t do anything but hang out with one another. We don’t make phone calls.”
Ivanka ran a fashion line for 11 years, only recently closing it down. She also had a fine jewellery store which closed in March 2017.
Ivanka now focuses on her role as an advisor to the President, Donald Trump.
