New York Fashion Week may be located more than 200 miles away from Washington, D.C., but that didn’t stop Ivanka Trump from turning the sidewalk outside her home into a catwalk as she strutted her way home on Wednesday night.
The 36-year-old first daughter looked more like an off-duty street style star than a White House staffer as she arrived at her family home, shortly after attending a Medal of Honor ceremony with her father.
Opting for an all-black look on what was a grey and dreary day in D.C., Ivanka showed off her slender waist in a pair of slim-fit black flared trousers and a skin-tight turtleneck which was tucked into the waist of her belted pants.

The form-fitting top, which appeared to have been made out of a thin cotton material, helped to highlight Ivanka’s curves, and the long-sleeved design was no doubt a blessing on such a wet and miserable day.
Ivanka then added some fashionable flair to the look courtesy of a pair of sky-high black heels, which featured metallic embellishments, and a $3,400 Chanel Executive Tote – having clearly traded up from her once-beloved Ivanka Trump handbag.
The mother-of-three completed her ensemble with a funky polka dot headscarf, tying the black and white number around her hair, which was swept up into a low, messy bun at the base of her head.
Although incredibly stylish, Ivanka’s outfit was perhaps slightly low-key and casual for the prestigious event she had attended that afternoon – a Medal of Honor ceremony hosted by her father, President Donald Trump, in the East Room of the White House.
The soiree was held to celebrate Congressional Medal of Honor winners, with the president taking the opportunity during the event to praise their strength and courage – while also joking about his own ego, much to the amusement of the gathered guests.

‘The supreme symbol of American courage,’ Trump said, praising the 33 Medal of Honor recipients in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday evening.
‘It is the ultimate tribute to American valor. You are the strongest, the bravest and the finest among us. See? My ego’s not that big.’
He added: ‘I admit it!’ as people in the room laughed and applauded.
Trump often praises himself as a ‘very stable genius’ and touts his ability to make amazing deals.
In January, he defended his mental fitness for office, calling himself a ‘very stable genius’ and ‘like, really smart.’
‘Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,’ Trump tweeted after the release of ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,’ by author Michael Wolff. The book contained several explosive claims, including doubts among Trump’s senior aides about his mental fitness for office.
His joke certainly seemed to sit well with those gathered at the event, with images showing the guests – including his daughter Ivanka – laughing and smiling throughout the ceremony.

‘We are loving our veterans, I think honestly, even more than before. We respect them so much. There is a whole different spirit over our country. We respect our veterans more than we have ever respected our veterans,’ Trump said ahead of the ceremony.

‘We are working so hard on that.’
Ivanka’s very public arrival back at her home on Wednesday comes after months of the first daughter seemingly attempting to maintain a relatively low profile.
The senior advisor to the White House has been much more cautious about posting images of her family and her private life on social media, and has also appeared more reluctant to step out in front of the cameras that are usually gathered outside her home.
She did, however, take to Instagram over the weekend to share a small snippet of her private life, posting images of herself, husband Jared, and their youngest son Theodore picking apples as they celebrated the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
Posting the image of the happy trio on Instagram, Ivanka wrote: ‘Happy New Year to Jewish people all over the world. Shana tova u’metuka! #RoshHashanah’
Her Hebrew message translates to ‘Have a good and sweet year’.

Jared was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family, and Ivanka converted to Judaism before marrying her husband in 2009.
The two are raising their children to be Orthodox Jews as well.
Donald Trump and Melania also shared warm wishes to the Jewish community in a presidential message published Sunday.
‘Melania and I wish all Jewish people Shana Tova and send our warmest greetings to those celebrating Rosh Hashanah and the start of the High Holy Days,’ his statement said.
‘Today, we reflect on the importance of religious liberty and ask that the Almighty bless Jewish families, both in the United States and around the world. The Jewish people have endured and overcome unthinkable persecution and suffering. Yet, despite the challenges they have faced, their strength and perseverance continue to inspire us all.
‘Melania and I pray that the High Holy Days are filled with God’s peace, love and mercy. We wish a blessed and happy New Year to all those observing Rosh Hashanah,’ the statement added.
