Melania Trump & Ivanka Trump slammed for designer dresses and no masks
Both Melania Trump, 50, and Ivanka Trump, 38, are well known for their expensive wardrobes and for making headlines with their latest outfits. The First Lady, who is a former model, is regularly spotted in designer dresses and accessories with hefty price tags, and President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka is always dressed to impress. However, for their latest appearances ahead of the Republican National Convention, both women have caused a stir on social media as they failed to wear an important item.
However, it’s reported that an official with the East Wing stated that all children had received a test for the virus before the launch.
Melania was dressed in her usual designer attire for the event, wearing a bright orange floral number by Dries Van Noten.
Dresses by the Belgian fashion designer typically sell for anything from £500 to £1,500.
Melania paired the eye-catching look with matching bright orange So Kate stiletto pumps from Christian Louboutin, which retail for around £525.
Ivanka also caused a social media storm with her appearance on Monday, as she wore a £1,500 dress yet failed to team it with a protective mask.
The daughter of President Trump has previously been spotted wearing a face covering in public, and even had a chain so she could comfortably wear it around her neck.
However, the Senior Advisor chose not to wear a face mask as she headed to the Charlotte Convention Centre to hear her father speak.
Ivanka wore a white dress from Lela Rose with a two-toned blue floral design, paired with white stiletto sandals with a neat ankle strap.
Posting about the outing on Instagram, Ivanka wrote: “Our Farmers to Families Food Box Program has fed more than 100 Million meals to people since its launch just weeks ago in response to COVID-19.
“Today, the President committed $1 Billion more to this historic program — a big win for the American people.”
But social media users were critical of the outfit as Ivanka visited the food production plant in North Carolina with her father.
“Your attire is completely inappropriate for the setting,” remarked one Twitter user, as others commented to ask where her mask was.
“You’re standing in a dress that cost just under $2000 talking about handing out food boxes. ‘Let them eat cake’,” wrote another.
