These Are Ivanka Trump’s Met Gala Glamour Rules

Ivanka Trump has been a red-carpet fixture at the Met Gala over the years.

Her style statements have been consistent since 2004: figure-flattering silhouettes from head to toe that highlight her shoulders, legs and décolletage. For footwear, she has stepped out in strappy sandal styles or a simple open-toe heel profile — the better to show off a pretty pedicure.

Last year, she arrived in a striking red Ralph Lauren dress with her husband, Jared Kushner, at the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, which launched the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” exhibition. Yes, handsome arm candy can complement an outfit, too.

Dramatic, splashy jewelry — especially chunky bracelets and sparkling earrings — are also not spared.

The businesswoman has mingled with Blake Lively and Wendi Deng Murdoch, among many other famous faces, at the annual star-studded soiree — including her father, President Donald Trump, who has also made appearances over the years with his wife, Melania.
