The President of the United States' daughter appeared both graceful and flashing in a Rodarte gown at a state dinner in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron's visit.


Although the point of the gathering, which took place on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, was to celebrate the 250 years of good relations between the United States and France, Ivanka stole the show.

The 36-year-old arrived at the White House event hand-in-hand with her husband, Jared Kushner, and her expensive dress caught everyone's attention, as reported by Yahoo Lifestyle.

The pink polka-dot gown was part of Rodarte's spring 18' line and had a tired tulle silhouette, a ruffled collar and a decorative floral accessory around the waist.


To complete the look, Ivanka opted for a pair of black pointy pumps with a 4-inch heel. Her blonde hair was carefully tied in a bun, and sparkly earrings could be seen dangling from her ears.

But Donald Trump's daughter wasn't the first one to wear the dress created by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who have a vast legion of celebrity fans who love to show off their designs.


In 2017, the same polka dress was worn by Kirsten Dunst, the actress who played the role of Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man Trilogy alongside Tobey Maguire.

Dunst walked down the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in the pink Rodarte gown. Millie Bobby Brown, also an actress, wore a white version of the creation at the BRIT Awards in February

Usually an icon for high-end fashion, Ivanka seemed to have found inspiration regarding her wardrobe in both actresses. On the other hand, her mother-in-law, Melania, hasn't been so lucky in the fashion department.

The First Lady has been criticized in the past for her dubious choices of wardrobe. In September 2017, while addressing bullying issues, she wore a bright and puffy pink Delpozo dress.

During her speech, Melania added that children should be protected and adults needed to make sure that no child would ever go hungry; all while wearing the $2 950 gown.
