Soon-to-be First Daughter Ivanka Trump is already proving to be a presidential style icon.
While the soon-to-be First Lady chose a sedate black coat for Inauguration Eve, Ivanka, by many accounts, upstaged her by choosing green. According to Hollywood Life, Ivanka’s coat was a “waterfall jacket with two, wide-open ruffled lapels that flowed into a fun, bouncy, high-low cape in the back.”
The Hollywood Reporter saw shades of Jackie O in the social media pic that Ivanka posted of “the coat”: “The photo is very fashion in its faux reality, as if it’s aiming to be one of the old 1960s and 70s’ era Ron Galella paparazzi shots of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.”
It was the green outfit that most people were talking about. But the white-and-black number that Ivanka wore to the candlelit dinner on Inauguration Eve was pretty striking too.
The back was even more unique.
USA Today reported that Ivanka’s green hue stood out in a sea of black worn by other family members and outshone First Lady-elect Melania Trump.
“The color green, according to color psychology, is the color associated with such things as new life, nature, growth, energy and renewal. It’s also the color of money, finances, banking, ambition, jealousy and Wall Street,” reported the newspaper.
It was a daring choice that paid off, judging from the fawning reaction to the garment on Twitter.
The coat – worn over a green dress of the same distinctive hue – was first glimpsed on Ivanka in New York, when she walked out of the family’s apartment building with her husband and children.
She was still wearing the outfit when she disembarked from the military plane that brought the Trump family to Washington D.C. for inauguration festivities.
She was also photographed in it again with her husband, father and stepmother, Melania, at the Lincoln Memorial.
Ivanka’s father, Donald Trump, will not take the oath of office until January 20, 2017, but the Trumps are participating in a series of activities on Inauguration Eve, such as a wreath laying ceremony and an exclusive candlelit dinner.
It wasn’t the first time that Ivanka dazzled in green. Remember the second presidential debate?
