Ivanka Trump wears $12,888 polka-dot gown to state dinner

On Tuesday night, for the first state dinner hosted by the Trump administration, Ivanka Trump wore a $12,888 dress.

The first daughter opted for a pink tulle ruffle gown from Rodarte. According to the product’s description on Matchesfashion.com, the piece is “crafted to swathe the figure, with ruffles floating across the boat neck and V-shaped back, a striking blossom embellishment at the pleated waist, and a floor-skimming tiered skirt.” The site suggests to save the piece for “the most elegant of occasions.”

The embroidered dress was made in the United States (Melania Trump went with a French label). The American sisters behind the brand, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, have lots of celebrity fans. In fact, Kirsten Dunst walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in the same gown in 2017 and Millie Bobby Brown wore a white version of the dress in February. 

Ivanka’s look was met with mixed reviews, with many critics calling out the high price tag.
