The simple palate seems like a departure for the designer, who is regularly seen in elaborate patterns or color blocking. 

Yet one Twitter user was quick to notice a possible motive behind the hue's selection, while others saw it as a deviation from the dress codes in the orthodox community. Others viewed the "fancy" dress as disrespectful to everything else that was occuring in Israel during the opening.

This is the second time Ivanka has visited Israel while her father has been in office. In May of last year, the first family visited Tel Aviv's Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial. Both Ivanka and Melania donned white for the somber occasion -- yet Melania's outfit drew controversy for her uncovered shoulders at the memorial.

Ivanka's arrival on Sunday has coincided with a series of deadly clashes, where at least 41 Palestinians have been reportedly killed while protesting the opening of the embassy. The Trump administration announced in December they were moving the embassy to Jerusalem, therefore recognizing the city as the Israeli capital
