Who did it best? A detailed breakdown of Chelsea Clinton vs. Ivanka Trump's weddings

How to Get Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Dress-Inspired Fashion For Less

While Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton might be at each other's necks amidst the political drama during the 2016 Presidential Election, let's take a trip down memory lane and remember their prominent daughters, Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton, who were the center of attention as they stole all eyes at their fabulous weddings.

Ivanka married financier Jared Kushner in 2009. Chelsea married her husband, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, in summer 2010. The women, who were previously friends before the election, both had stunning weddings and their nuptials remain some of the most prominent events in many social circles.

Naturally since there's a showdown on the political front, we had to take this opportunity to compare the future first daughters' (again in Chelsea's case) A-list nuptials to decide who was the ultimate bride.

The Dress

Ivanka: The bride dazzled in a detailed A-line Vera Wang gown, overlaid with three different shades of floral ivory lace. The dress had sheer lace sleeves to the elbow, and a moderate train.

Chelsea: She opted for not one, but two Vera Wang creations and went with a strapless, silk, organza gown with a glittering beaded waistline belt, and pleated tulle across the bodice for her ceremony. Her second was Grecian-inspired frock with a black ribbon belt and criss-cross strap detailing across the back for the reception.

Winner: Ivanka stole the show with her immaculate detailing. Her conservative, yet stunning gown is the clear winner here, not to mention her beautiful diamond-studded jewelry completed the look.

Hair and Makeup

Ivanka: She maintained a minimalist look. She wore her hair down in soft, polished waves and continued her classic look throughout her makeup. She did a nude lip, light blush, a slight smokey eye and full gorgeous lashes.

Chelsea: Hersleek up-do highlighted her distinct facial structure, but she really brought the drama in the makeup department. She kept her base makeup toned down, then added the oomph with rosy pink lips with some extra shine, a bold eyeshadow and a set of serious lashes.

Winner: Ivanka's subtle yet sultry style lured us in, and did just the trick to keep all eyes on her on her big day.
