Biden’s New Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Is Called Out by Twitter, Don Jr. for Wearing $65 Dress Designed by Ivanka Trump
President Joe Biden’s new press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had a fashion faux pas – as she was pictured posing at the White House in a dress designed by Ivanka Trump.
The internet is reeling after Jean-Pierre, 47 – who became the White House press secretary on May 13 following the departure of Jen Psaki – was spotted rocking one of Ivanka’s gowns.
White House press assistant Megha Bhattacharya shared a snap of Jean-Pierre in the dress to Twitter on Sunday, while celebrating her new position, writing, ‘Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has a nice ring to it.’
However, when someone pointed out that Jean-Pierre was donning an Ivanka Trump design, many social media users were entertained by it.
They branded the style blunder ‘hysterical’ and ‘priceless,’ calling it ‘ironic’ that she wore a gown designed by the former president’s daughter.
But despite her boss and the former president’s rocky past, it appears that Jean-Pierre is a fan of his daughter’s fashion sense.
‘Love the Press Secretary’s dress. I too own this Ivanka Trump dress and I’m even wearing it in my profile pic,’ wrote one Twitter user.
‘Styled by Ivanka,’ replied another, alongside a laughing emoji.
‘The irony! So cute though,’ said someone else.
A different person added, ‘They love her style, they just don’t admit it.’
Ivanka’s brother, Donald Trump Jr., even noticed it – and he reposted the original tweet to his own account and tagged Ivanka.
‘Flagging for you @IvankaTrump,’ he wrote.
The number, entitled Embellished Sheath Dress, is currently out of stock but originally sold for $65. It is being resold on Poshmark for $85.
‘Own the room in a sleek, sophisticated sheath dress from Ivanka Trump, exquisitely detailed with tiny embellishments and a modern slit at front,’ a description of the dress reads.
Made from 94 per cent polyester and six per cent spandex, the knee-length, sleeveless dress features a mock neckline and two front slits. It comes in various colors, but Jean-Pierre opted for blush ballet pink.
Ivanka launched her own clothing line in 2011, which focused on women’s office attire at an affordable price point.
