    Earlier this month, Ivanka Trump’s role as key advisor to her father was confirmed. With the news of her being given her own West Wing office in the White House, as well as a higher level of security clearance, it’s not surprising that she’s recruited the help of someone to organise her working wardrobe.

    Ivanka wore a white Oscar de la Renta suit, for her father’s Inauguration ceremony.

    Ivanka is reportedly working with celebrity stylist Cat Williams, who began her career at Australian Vogue, before assisting Kim Kardashian’s stylist Christine Centenera, as well as working with Hollywood stylist Micaela Erlanger, helping dress the likes of Meryl Streep and Lupita Nyong’o for their red carpet looks.

    The celeb stylist is said to have impressed the first daughter with the Ralph Lauren jumpsuit Ivanka wore to the 2016 Met Gala.

    Favouring labels like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and Altuzarra, the 35 year-old can’t seem to win over the public. Bashed for not wearing her own line, then unfairly accused of being ‘out of touch’ because of her choice to wear exclusively high-end designs. So, Ivanka Trump loves luxury brands, but if we were brought up in a multi-million dollar household, wouldn’t we all be wearing our catwalk favourites?

    We say, give the girl a break. While we look to her style as inspiration, it’s what she’s doing in the White House that really matters – whether she’s wearing Primark or Prada.

    Donald Trump was first to comment on Twitter, after her fashion line was pulled from Nordstrom stores allegedly in protest of Trump’s inauguration. The retailer claimed it was because of the line’s low sales. Amid the harsh backlash of Ivanka’s decisions, we think the the eldest daughter of the President and now White House employee will have more pull in the style stakes yet.

    Whilst Ivanka has come under fire from the media for her clothing company pushing sales, we’ve got give her credit – she is first and foremost a business woman and this is one incredible business move, nothing more. But as the newly appointed White House member has said she will be taking a step back from her fashion and jewellery lines, we are likely to see a more subtle approach when it comes to her wardrobe.
