Ivanka Trump had pep in her step as she left her Washington, D.C. home in a seafoam green shirt dress on Tuesday, after standing by her father’s side at the Republication National Convention the day before.
The 38-year-old looked elegant in the belted $1,990 Ralph Lauren frock, which was buttoned to the top collar and featured slit sleeves that gave her the appearance of wearing a cape.
President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter has worn the now sold-out dress a few times before, but on this occasion, she paired it with an accessory she may not have imagined wearing pre-pandemic — a floral face mask.
Ivanka has faithfully donned a protective face covering for the majority of her public outings, despite her father’s wavering stance on masks.
She has also taken great care to match them to her outfits, with Tuesday’s look being no exception.
Keeping the focus on her sleek shirt dress and her colorful mask, she wore classic suede pumps in an understated shade of nude.
Matching seafoam green earrings peeked out from underneath her hair, and she carried a cream leather clutch in her hand.
Ivanka also had on a red string bracelet on her left wrist, which she has been wearing off and on for a few years now.
Although she hasn’t spoken about the purpose of the bracelet, it does bear a resemblance to the type of red string that Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the ‘evil eye.’
Ivanka had a twinkle in her eye as she headed to work, and while there was no way to tell, she appeared to be smiling behind her mask.
She got a late start on Tuesday, leaving her home at 10:30 a.m. — three hours after her husband, fellow White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, stepped out the door.
Ivanka seemed well-rested and chipper, despite spending most of the day on the campaign trail in North Carolina with her father the day before.
She put on a show during her short walk from her front door to the Secret Service vehicle waiting at the curb for her, giving a cordial wave to the paparazzi as they captured her departure.
Her long blonde hair was center-parted and flat ironed straight. Coincidence or not, it was the same hairstyle that she donned to speak at the RNC in 2016.
Ivanka may be on hand to support her brother Eric Trump, 36, and half-sister Tiffany Trump, 26, who are both slated to speak at the RNC on Tuesday evening.
It’s a rare appearance for Tiffany, who gave a well-received speech four years ago at the convention in Cleveland, Ohio, where she talked about her father in personal terms, showing a different side to the GOP nominee.
‘My dad is a natural-born encourager, the last person who will ever tell you to lower your sights or give up your dreams,’ she told the crowd.
President Trump’s youngest daughter usually pops up at major events in his administration — the State of the Union address, the trip he took to Mount Rushmore on July 3, and the state dinner in London.
In early August, she was seen at a boat parade for President Trump in Montauk, cruising along with Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.
All of the oldest children of President Trump are all participating in the convention in some form. However, it’s unclear if 14-year-old Barron will make an appearance.
The president’s youngest child may show up for his speech on Thursday, which traditionally ends with the nominee’s family taking the stage for a photo-op (and, in a normal convention year, balloons).
First Lady Melania Trump will also be addressing viewers on the second night of the convention from the White House.
Her words will likely be scrutinized following the controversy surrounding her speech at the 2016 RNC, which heavily mirrored a portion of Michelle Obama’s address at the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
While President Trump is expected to speak on all four nights of the RNC, his eldest daughter will not address supporters until Thursday — the final evening of the event.
It is understood that she will introduce her father as he prepares to accept the Republican party’s official nomination.
It’s already been a busy week for Ivanka, who traveled to North Carolina to be by her father’s side on Monday.
She was seen strutting out of her home in a $1,990 white dress from Lela Rose that had pretty blue flowers printed across it.
Ivanka added matching accessories, opting for a white face mask, white strappy sandals, and a $1,540 white Max Mara handbag.
Clearly conscious of the fact that she will spend the next four evenings in the spotlight as she joins President Trump at the RNC, Ivanka went all out on the glam.
She chose to go all out with the eye makeup, modeling bold eyeshadow complete with plenty of mascara.
Meanwhile, her blonde hair was styled in loose waves that hung down below her shoulders.
Shortly after leaving her home, Ivanka traveled to North Carolina, where she and her father visited a Farmers to Families Food Box program site in Mills River ahead of the start of the convention.
‘I am incredibly excited to join the President in North Carolina as he sees first-hand the incredible work being done through our Farmers to Families Food Box program,’ she said in a statement.
Ivanka was pictured disembarking Air Force One at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, having taken off her face mask and replaced it with a glamorous pair of sunglasses.
She then made an unexpected visit to the convention ahead of schedule, where President Trump accepted the nomination in person, while Ivanka watched on from the wings.
During his speech, the president told the scaled-back convention: ‘We have to win. This is the most important election in the history of our country.’
Soon after the surprise speech, Ivanka and her father flew to Asheville Regional Airport in Fletcher, North Carolina, before making their way to Mills River for their visit to the Farmers to Families Food Box program site.
They were met by a crowd of fans, with Ivanka’s arrival, in particular, eliciting cheers and screams.
