Ivanka, who received a lot of flak on social media when she wore a $5,000 dress amid the her father’s implementation of a controversial travel ban, went with another pricey look for the occasion: a Roland Mouret pink dress that retails for $2,995. She paired the bright dress with black pumps, probably from her Ivanka Trump line. It was a more unconventional look to wear during a speech at Congress, particularly since her shoulders were exposed.
Melania, meanwhile, went with a slightly more formal look. She opted for a black Michael Kors suit, but it certainly wasn’t conservative in terms of price. The jacket alone retails for nearly $5,000, and the skirt goes for about $4,500. We didn’t get a look at her footwear, but we do know that the first lady is partial to brands such as Christian Louboutin. Melania received both praise and criticism for her outfit; some said its roughly $10,000 price tag was not exactly appropriate for Congress.
