Ivanka Trump sat down to talk with the International Monetary Fund’s managing director, Christine Lagarde, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel at an international women’s summit today in Berlin, Germany.
The first daughter was invited by Merkel to participate in a panel discussion at the Women20 summit, which aims to “promote women’s economic empowerment.”
For her first international trip as a member of her father’s presidential team, Trump chose to wear a blue floral belted wrap dress paired with navy suede pumps. The first daughter, who was recently named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, has been known to frequently wear shoes from her own brand.
At the summit, Trump vowed to push for “incremental, positive change” for women, while also defending her father’s attitude toward women. Amid groans from the crowd in response to her standing up for him, the president’s adviser simply brushed it off, adding, “I can speak on a very personal level knowing that he encouraged me and enabled me to thrive.”
