It's a classic Bob Mackie from the 80s. I love that she rocked it. She looked better than her Mom.— Jellenne 🇺🇸🌵🌞 (@jellen805) September 21, 2019
Ivana, a former Czech model turned businesswoman had a stunning transformation from her younger years to being an adult.
The former model didn't reach her standing by traditional means and instead climbed to the top the more complicated way.
Her resilience and determination kept her going and paved the way for her to live the life she has today. Despite her lost luck in love, Ivanka has proven herself a strong and independent woman.
She started with humble beginnings in Czechoslovakia before leaving the Soviet country as a competitive athlete -- a disguise to escape for freedom.
Being a member of the junior national ski team, Ivana was allowed to travel to compete.
"Ivana didn't want to stay here," her mother told Newsweek. "She was always ambitious, and her father treated her like a boy."
Her mother wore it much better. Also seems more appropriate for the time frame. Ivanka is just so damn thirsty for attention. She definitely subscribes to her father's motto that all publicity is good publicity. I wish people would just ignore her. Now THAT would piss her off. pic.twitter.com/lYd2SM8xQh— Prickly Pear (@keksloo) September 22, 2019
The former wife of the president then moved to Canada where she became a ski instructor and continued her modeling career, that already began back home.
In 1976, she met Donald Trump at a New York fashion show, and the rest was history between them.
