Ivanka Trump celebrates Karlie Kloss’ engagement by calling her ‘sister’

Move over, Tiffany Trump. Ivanka Trump has got a new sister.

Karlie Kloss recently got engaged to her long-term boyfriend, Josh Kushner, during “a romantic weekend together in upstate New York,” a source told People magazine.

Kloss, who is on the board of advisers to Oath, HuffPost and AOL’s parent company, posted the happy news to Instagram on Tuesday, writing, “I can’t wait for forever together."

Josh Kushner is the brother of Jared Kushner, who is a senior adviser to President Donald Trump and is married to first daughter and fellow senior adviser Ivanka Trump. This means that when the 25-year-old supermodel marries her 33-year-old boo, she will be a sister-in-law of Ivanka Trump, who seemed excited to welcome Kloss to the family.

“So, so happy for you and Josh!” Ivanka Trump wrote on Instagram, commenting on Kloss’ engagement announcement. “I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the decades of happy memories we will create together as a family!”

If the three exclamation points after the word “sister” are any indication, Ivanka Trump seems pumped about the latest addition to her extended family.

Josh Kushner celebrated his engagement on Instagram as well, posting a photo of Kloss with the caption “fiancée.”

Ivanka Trump was eager to congratulate the happy couple in the comments for that post as well: "So incredibly happy for you Josh! You and Karlie are blessed to have found one another. Here's to a lifetime of love, laughter + adventure for you both! xx"

The Kode With Klossy founder met Kushner in 2012 and has been pretty private about their relationship. Kloss, who is active on social media, rarely posts snapshots of Kushner, and they’re rarely photographed in public together.

Kloss said she voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and has avoided making public statements about Donald Trump and the Kushner family.

As for her fiancé, who is the founder of venture capital firm Thrive Capital and health insurance company Oscar, his spokesman told Esquire in 2016 that he is a lifelong Democrat and that he would not be voting for Trump in the presidential election.

It is unclear how close Kloss and Ivanka Trump have been. According to People, they have been photographed together only once, at the 2016 U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York.

Ivanka Trump at the Met Gala

2004 

Ivanka Trump’s history at the Met Gala begins in 2004, when we were all younger and blissfully unaware of how this family would become the center of our news universe in 12 years.

As with most things that happened in 2004 (the breakup of Bennifer, Britney Spears marrying that dude in Las Vegas, the entirety of Ashlee Simpson’s singing career), the images from that night are ... bleak. This was the first gala that Donald and Melania Trump attended together, too, and Ivanka was right beside them on the red carpet.

Not weird at all.

2005

Trump was back at it again the very next year, attending the gala — a celebration of the label Chanel — in a black, frilly, chiffon, kinda Chanel-y dress.

Her father was at this one too, but didn’t take the time to pose with her.

2006

Remember when this particular style of dress — brown chiffon with a low-cut neckline and a satin bow at the waist — was everything? Unfortunately we do too.

But hey, just blame this whole thing on it being 2006.

2007

Between the messy top knot hair, the drop diamond earrings, the hair parted down the middle and the dramatic color blocking on the dress (courtesy of designer Jason Wu), this is what every girl in 2007 wanted to look like at prom.

2008

Now here’s a dress Ivanka Trump would probably never be caught in today. The theme of the night was superheroes, and Ivanka went for, like, some kind of goddess? Maybe?

The dress itself, by J. Mendel, is actually quite pretty, and Trump walked the red carpet alongside the designer as well.

For a bit more superhero-y flair, she added a diamond headpiece. Think of it as a relaxed tiara.

2009

2009 was a big year for Ivanka Trump at the Met Gala because, for the first time ever, she brought along a plus one. And who was this plus one? That’d be Jared Kushner, of course, who’d be her husband in a mere few months. Oh, happy day.

The dress Trump wore — in line with the night’s “model as muse” theme — was a swirling, pale pink Brian Reyes number with a bit of an unruly train and black accessories.

2010 

The next year at the gala, which had a theme centered on American women, the two walked the red carpet together once more, with Kushner in a tux and Trump in a sparkly, beaded lavender Atelier Versace gown with a waterfall train on the back.


It was quite mermaid-esque.

2012

 After skipping the big event in 2011, Kushner and Trump were back at it again in 2012, at the gala celebrating designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. For the night, Kushner was yet again in a tux (honestly, it might be the same one) while Trump wore a blue velvet Peter Pilotto dress with sheer cutouts and a dramatic, geometric neckline.

Peep the bangs.
2013

This is Ivanka Trump’s attempt at punk. The theme of the 2013 Met Gala was the punk aesthetic and punk-inspired couture. 

For Trump, that meant showing up in a blue and green Juan Carlos Obandodress, spiky gold accessories, a black leather belt and deep-turquoise strips of hair.
Kushner was there, too, unfortunately sans any punk accessories.

2014

This is a gown that wouldn’t be that surprising to see Trump in today. For the 2014 gala, with its theme centered on master couturier Charles James, Trump wore this chartreuse ballgown from Oscar de la Renta, who remains a favorite of hers.

2015

The 2015 Met Gala is most widely known for being the site where Rihanna almost sent everyone on earth into cardiac arrest because of that glorious sunshine yellow Guo Pei outfit. But hey guys, Ivanka and Jared were there too.

For a night celebrating Chinese design, Trump wore a traditional blue and white A-line dress, with a dramatic striped train by Prabal Gurung, a designer who has since spoken out against Trump’s father’s policies and expressed unease about ever dressing Melania Trump.

2016

And this is where this story ends — for now. 2016 was the last year we saw Trump and Kushner on this particular red carpet, as her father’s campaign was well on its way to changing the landscape of American politics forever.

The theme of the night was fashion and technology, which isn’t so evident based on the couple’s ensembles. Trump wore a bright, Republican-red jumpsuit from Ralph Lauren, who openly favoredHillary Clinton at the time, and Kushner wore that same damn tux.

The next year, as the couple both became active parts of Trump’s father’s administration, reports claimed that they were simply “too busy” to attend. In 2018, we highly, highly doubt they’d be up for it. Trump’s father was banned, by Wintour herself, after all, and it’d certainly be torturously awkward.

Maybe next year will be different though.
