The Trump administration last weekend sent Ivanka Trump, its senior and nominally most feminist presidential adviser, to Dubai to headline a two-day Global Women's Forum called "The Power of Influence." In her keynote address, Trump praised the Persian Gulf region's "significant reforms."
"We know that when women are free to succeed," the first daughter said, "families thrive, communities flourish and nations are stronger."
Despite the tone-deaf, or perhaps simply preening, conference title, Dubai is lately known, among people who are paying attention, as the home base of true dystopic fairy tales.
She won repeated applause as she praised the region for its alleged advances regarding women. Even as Saudi Arabia incarcerates women activists who pushed for female driving rights and Dubai has disappeared two of its princesses.
Despite the tone-deaf, or perhaps simply preening, conference title, Dubai is lately known, among people who are paying attention, as the home base of true dystopic fairy tales. Three princesses have fled a nation in which women are subject to male guardianship, among other codified medievalisms. Two were hunted down, allegedly kidnapped and dragged back to Dubai, and they are reported to be living in drugged captivity. A third princess, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's sixth wife, Haya of Jordan, escaped to London.
Ivanka Trump went for a colorful look as she arrived in India today for President Donald Trump’s two-day state visit.
The first daughter looked chic in a floral splatter print dress from Proenza Schouler, which put an arty spin on the no-fail floral look. The dress was made of a baby blue viscose georgette, with a hanging tie detail, rounded sleeves and floral graphics in an abstract pattern. Initially priced at $1,690, the dress is now marked down on Farfetch.com to $1,014 (40% off).

For footwear, the senior White House advisor went with a pair of bold red pumps. The shoes appeared to be fabricated from suede; they boasted a pointed toe and a slim stiletto heel.

While the mom of three has plenty of clothing in her wardrobe — favorite brands include Carolina Herrera, Dolce & Gabbana and Max Mara — she also isn’t above a rewear. Trump first sported the Proenza Schouler dress in September 2019, for a visit to Purmamarca, Argentina during a tour of South America. On that occasion, she teamed the statement-making dress with a pair of pointed-toe baby blue pumps that appeared to be fabricated from suede.
Chrissy Teigen had a question about Ivanka Trump’s suggestion that families stuck at home with kids during the coronavirus pandemic plan a living room campout.
President Trump’s daughter and adviser had recommended that her followers “throw a bedsheet over some taped together brooms. Plan a menu & ‘pack’ sandwiches, salads.” Trump joked that s’mores were optional.
“After we quote pack unquote sandwiches can we please have Covid tests,” she wrote Tuesday to her 12.4 million followers.
The model was, of course, referencing frustrating delays in testing for the coronavirus throughout the country. She followed up her message with a series of emojis of the winking face with the tongue out.
Earlier in the day, the frequent tweeter had called on Ivanka’s step-mother, first lady Melania Trump, to do something with her Be Best initiative to spotlight “regular ass awesome people” doing good works during the health crisis.
“ALL I have seen this bot do is gently touch Christmas ornaments in a cape and stare in a cape and pat statues in a different cape and then change her cape into a rude ass jacket,” Teigen wrote, in part.
Ivanka Trump has enlisted her three children to encourage people to frequently and thoroughly wash their hands to prevent the spread of the coronavirus amid the global health crisis.
The 38-year-old first daughter took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to share a video of her kids — Arabella, eight, Joseph, six, and Theodore, three — diligently scrubbing their hands with pricey hand soap while slowly singing the alphabet together.
'We ALL have a role to play to slow the spread! Wash your hands (ohhh...and turn off the sink with your elbow or a towel while you do to save ... still a work in progress with these guys 10 days in), she captioned the footage.
