The New York Times dubbed Ivanka Trump as “the most powerful first daughter since Alice Roosevelt Longworth.”
And, she has acquired an unprecedented position in the US politics- being a top White House adviser.
She’s acquired her own West Wing office, and has received security clearance and even a government-issued communications device.
Before getting involved in politics, Ivanka was building her own empire and making headlines for everything from her wealth, to her style, to her controversial marketing tactics.
But, What Do You Really Know Of Ivanka Trump?
Ivanka has her own secrets that she doesn’t want to be exposed. These are the very secrets that Ivanka Trump does not want you to know.
1. Cosmetic Work Done
Ivanka Trump is a beautiful woman, no one can deny that. She was on Maxim’s Hot 100 list in 2007 and the Top 99 Women of 2007 list.
However, after seeing her at multiple public appearances, fans are curious: has Ivanka has had any cosmetic enhancements done?
While she has not confirmed that she has had any work done, rumors have always swirled that she has gone under the knife for a nose job and breast augmentation at some point in her early twenties.
2. Ivanka’s Relationship Troubles With Jared
Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have an intriguing relationship. Only a year before Ivanka wed Kushner, she broke up with him reportedly because of religious differences- Ivanka was a Presbyterian and Kushner is an Orthodox Jew.
According to a New Yorker article published in 2016, Kushner’s parents hoped he would marry a Jewish woman; Kushner’s refusal to take her side caused her to end things. There was trouble in paradise for a while, but the break didn’t last long.
Ex-wife of Rupert Murdoch Wendi Deng, a friend of the couple, apparently contrived to bring them back together by inviting them both on the same yacht trip, and the two eventually reunited, with Ivanka converting to Judaism upon marrying Kushner.
3. Party-Loving Socialite
She has been a business executive, runway model, socialite, doting mother, and now key adviser in her father’s White House. Ivanka Trump has lived her life in the public eye.
Ivanka put the socialite on her socialite/entrepreneur business card first — she’s well connected with some famous names also. Or at least, she was.
Although she has left her socialite image behind in favor of a women-empowering, political one, the truth is that Ivanka once lived that socialite life.
She was even friends with Paris Hilton! She dated Topher Grace! Ivanka and Chelsea Clinton had long had a tight bond. However, the two have reportedly not spoken since the election.
4. Hosted Secret Dinner Parties
Reports have surfaced that Ivanka has been hosting “secret” dinner parties with powerful women, her most recent one which was at Wendi Murdoch’s home, with a guest list packed full of powerful businesswomen.
According to Pattie Sellers, executive director of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summits, the guest list was comprised of
“IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert, Xerox chairman Ursula Burns, Tory Burch, Mika Brzezinski, Tina Brown, Christy Turlington Burns, Time editor Nancy Gibbs, Ford Foundation president Darren Walker, National Urban League CEO Marc Morial, and Goldman Sachs partner Dina Powell.”
The purpose of her dinner party, according to one of the attendees, is to learn the strategies to promote women’s economic empowerment from women who know about such things.
Ivanka talked about entrepreneurship, equal pay, paid leave, and a lot about where the Donald Trump Administration may have the most opportunity: education.
5. She’s A Luxury Feminist, Not A Real Feminist
“Ms. Trump has found both professional and personal success by enjoying many of the benefits of feminism, she is far from an avatar of a feminist future.
Instead, she’s a kind of post-feminist huckster, selling us traditional femininity and support of male power wrapped up in a feminist bow,” says Jill Filipovic in The New York Times.
6. The Truth About The Relationship With Her Father
Donald and Ivanka’s relationship caused controversy when the 36-year-old former TV personality and socialite was made Assistant to the President. She has been called “the favorite.”
Apart from the questionable comments he has made about Ivanka’s body and looks over the years, people tend to find their father-daughter relationship a little odd.
Donald trusts his daughter’s opinion and it has been said that he gives her more authority than any of his wives. She keeps Donald in control.
