Ivanka Trump Celebrates Her Mom’s Birthday With a Throwback Including Retro Shoes

Today marks the 71st birthday of Ivana Trump, mother to Ivanka, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric.

To celebrate her mom’s birthday, Ivanka shared a series of throwback photos, including one of the duo skiing together in snow-ready ensembles and ski boots and another showing Ivana on the slopes in a stylish metallic set. The third image from the post shows a young Ivanka kissing her mom’s nose and taking off her retro purple Mary Janes before standing up on an extravagant bed; in the shot, Ivana sports a monochrome white outfit with a tie-neck blouse and cropped pants. On her feet, she wore matching almond-toe, round-vamp pumps with a mid-height heel as she smiled up at her daughter.

Ivanka captioned the post: “Happy birthday, Mama!”

The style worn by Ivana in the last picture is reminiscent of shoes that Ivanka now wears at 38 years old. While she sometimes chooses flats and sneakers over stilettos, the adviser to the president more often favors pumps with almond or pointed toes and a higher heel. Her favorite power pumps come from brands like Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo and Gianvito Rossi and she can be spotted still wearing styles from her namesake line that sold apparel, footwear and accessories until July 2018.

Ivanka also enjoys a monochromatic ensemble, just like her mother, demonstrating that the streamlined styling hack transcends generations and decades.
