London, Nov. 9, 2019 (AltAfrica)– Daughter and Advisor to US President Ivanka Trump warm herself to the heart of Moroccans during her three days visit to the North African country when she don beautiful local dress to the admiration of locals
She capped the day with a traditional kaftan fit for a Moroccan princess while attending a dinner at the royal palace in Rabat, hosted by Princess Lalla Meryem.
Ivanka glittered in her gold Moroccan gown, which she accessorized with pearl earrings and nude pumps.
Ivanka looked at home seated next to Princess Lalla Meryem, who stunned in a blue velvet kaftan with intricate gold detailing.
The dinner came after a full day of appointments for Ivanka Trump in and near Rabat on the second day of her three-day trip to Morocco. As with all of Ivanka’s appointments in Morocco thus far, the CEO of the Millenium Challenge Corporation, Sean Cairncross, was at her side.
Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported that the King’s adviser, Andre Azoulay, attended the royal dinner. A White House official said the charge d’affaires of the American embassy, David Greene, also joined the meal.
Ivanka has been routinely styling Moroccan-inspired looks during her trip.
At least three of Ivanka’s Morocco outfits so far were designed by Fadila el Gadi, a Moroccan designer who teaches underprivileged children the art of embroidery.
El Gadi designed the gray jacket Ivanka wore during her first meeting with Princess Lalla Meryem.
On November 7, Ivanka wore a white Moroccan-style top with black details designed by El Gadi on her visit to the rural town of Sidi Kacem. Ivanka fashioned the top with a black turtleneck and cinched it at the waist with a black belt.
El Gadi took to Twitter yesterday to express her gratitude to Ivanka, who styled one of El Gadi’s ornate capes with a silk green jumpsuit upon returning to Rabat.
Ivanka donned the jewel-toned ensemble at her meetings with Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita and Morocco’s Head of Government Saadeddine El Othmani on November 7.
Much like the Western officials who have come before her, Ivanka seems to be taking a liking to Moroccan fashion.
