Ivanka Trump stuns in simple blue Carolina Herrera gown for first state banquet at Buckingham Palace
The British Royals were seen wearing stark opposite outfits and dressed in white unlike Ivanka Trump who sported a blue gown
The Trump family were seen attending the most glamorous events of their three-day state visit to the UK and First Daughter Ivanka Trump was seen sporting a stunning blue Carolina Herrera dress for the occasion.
The state dinner took place at the Buckingham Palace on June 3 and is one of the most formal events in Trump's three-day visit. The 37-year-old Ivanka Trump was seen in the designer dress which is estimated to cost over £9,000 ($11,600). She complimented the dress with pearl accessories. Her hair was styled into a neat bun and she finished off the look with minimal and light make-up and a gentle smokey eye shadow.
However, the tie-sleeve sparkle embroidered trench gown which had a shirt collar and button down front raised some eyebrows and had people questioning whether the top half of the gown was "too casual" for such a formal event.
According to a Daily Mail report, etiquette expert William Hanson said that Ivanka had "missed the mark" with her outfit and said, "Ivanka Trump’s look was perfect... for an upper east side corporate garden party. It did cover all the requisite parts that need concealing for formal British evening occasions such as state banquets but it didn't quite hit the mark, however beautiful a color and fabric it may have been."
Hanson also criticized Ivanka's decision to not wear evening gloves and said, "There was an absence of evening gloves, too, although other British and American guests did also commit this faux pas too."
Ivanka's blue gown was the polar opposite of what the British royals chose to wear for the event and the Queen, Camilla Parker, and Kate Middleton was seen sporting white gowns for the occasion. Melania Trump was also seen matching the royals with her white Dior Couture dress with long formal gloves. Many social media users commented on Ivanka's choice of clothing.
One fan said, "Her dress seems a little out of place compared to others, does anyone agree or disagree?" Another wrote, "Ivanka did not get the memo to dress up. Really shirt collar dress. Is that the best you could do? Ugh." A third commented saying, "Ivanka, you are such a sharp dresser 99% of the time. You look so sloppy in that dress at Buckingham Palace. Surely you could have found something sharper to wear as I'm usually so proud of your choices."
