Ivanka Trump wears unusual sky blue suit to speak at Beverly Hills conference
Ivanka Trump, 37, spoke at the 2019 Milken Institute Global Conference yesterday, and the First Daughter put on an animated display in eye-catching blue. Donald Trump’s eldest daughter wore the sky blue suit jacket and trousers with a simple white shirt and black suede court shoes. She wore her long blonde hair in defined curles which hung over her shoulders. Letting her outfit do the talking, Ivanka opted for classic makeup, sticking to heavy mascara and peach lipstick.
A pair of pearl stud earrings could be seen in her ears, and the thin red bracelet she often wears was on her left wrist.

Ivanka Trump: Five facts about Donald Trump’s daughter
Ivanka is not, in fact, her real name. She actually shares her mother’s name Ivana.
Explaining why she is known as Ivanka in a 2010 tweet, she said: “In Czech, Ivanka is the baby name for Ivana, like Bobby is to Robert.”
Ivanka was well known to the American public before her father became President thanks to appearances on TV.
She made short cameos on Project Runway and Gossip Girl, as well as becoming a primary boardroom member on The Apprentice with Donald.
Ivanka married Jared Kushner on 25 October 2009 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, after a three month engagement.
Barron Trump served as ring bearer, as Ivanka wore a custom Vera Wang gown accessorised with diamonds from her fine jewellery collection.
Ivanka was raised as a Presbyterian Christian, but converted to Judaism to allow her to marry Jared Kushner.
Ivanka studied with Elie Weinstock from the Modern Orthodox Ramaz School, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City.
She now keeps kosher and observes the Jewish Sabbath. Ivanka said in the February 2015 edition of Vogue: “We’re pretty observant… It’s been such a great life decision for me… I really find that with Judaism, it creates an amazing blueprint for family connectivity.
“From Friday to Saturday we don’t do anything but hang out with one another. We don’t make phone calls.”
Ivanka ran a fashion line for 11 years, only recently closing it down. She also had a fine jewellery store which closed in March 2017.
Ivanka now focuses on her role as an advisor to the President, Donald Trump.
