Ivanka Trump gave a nod to Middle Eastern fashion as she attended the National Museum of Qatar during the Doha Forum in the Qatari capital on Saturday.
The First Daughter, 37, opted for a tailored kaftan by local Qatari designer Sanaa El Haddad, whose brand Jabador specializes in oriental and Moroccan-inspired hand-embroidered bishts and dresses.
She paired the navy velvet kaftan, which featured intricate gold embellishment, with a stylish light blue jumpsuit with bow neck-tie detail, and completed her outfit with a pair of chic stiletto heels.
During her visit, she was photographed taking a tour of the museum with Qatar Museums chairperson Sheikha al-Mayassa bint Hamad al-Thani and US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Ivanka wore her blonde hair loosely tied back, revealing a pair of dainty gold earrings.
Posting about the museum visit on her Instagram account, the mother-of-three praised the space, while thanking her tour guide for the personalized visit.
‘Beautiful final evening at the National Museum of Qatar,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you to the Amir of the State of Qatar for hosting.’
In a second post, she added: ‘The National Museum of Qatar brings to life the unique history of Qatar and its people.
‘Thank you @almayassabnthamad for the wonderful tour of this national treasure.’
It’s been a busy few days for the First Daughter, who traveled to the Middle East in order to take part in the Doha Forum on Saturday and Sunday, but also found time to pay a trip to a local US air base.
She looked chic in a camel-colored ensemble for the visit, wearing a chic coat that had bright red lapels over a matching turtleneck, which also had red detailing on the collar. She finished the ensemble with knee-high camel boots.
Sharing photos from her trip on her Instagram account, Ivanka praised the men and women serving, while sharing Christmas wishes with them.
‘It was an honor to visit Al-Udeid Air Base, the largest U.S. military installation in the Middle East, to thank the brave men and women who keep America safe,’ she said.
‘Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win! God bless you and Merry Christmas!’
The senior White House adviser stood out in a black and pink $2,600 (£1,947) Alexander McQueen blazer, which she paired with slightly flared black trousers and heels.
Her blonde bob was dried poker-straight and parted down the center, a style she has favored since cutting her hair in September.
Ivanka was at the Doha Forum in the Qatari capital to ‘participate in the forum’s programming and meet with government and business leaders regarding key economic objectives’, a US Treasury statement said.
She was pictured speaking with several high ranking politicians and business leaders at the event, including Qatari Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani at the event, held at Doha International Airport, on Sunday and Monday.
But while other politicians and high ranking figures were grilled by journalists at the event, Ivanka only answered questions posed to her by a member of Trump’s administration, according to Buzzfeed Editor in Chief Ben Smith.
‘Ivanka being interviewed by *State Dept PR person*, a former Fox News contributor, at the #DohaForum. Never quite seen anything like it,’ Smith tweeted.
‘Other, higher ranking figures, including the Malaysian PM and Turkish foreign minister, did tough interviews with journalists.’
