Ivanka Trump: Most influential voice in the next White House

Last updated on: November 15, 2016 17:10 IST

Without question, two of the most influential voices in a Trump White House will be Ivanka Trump, Donald's eldest daughter, and her husband Jared Kushner.
Ivanka is bright and beautiful, fashionable and forthright, says Anita Aikara.

Ivanka Trump is 35 and has three children. Who would know that when they meet her, always glamorous, always poised, with nay a strand of hair out of place.

Ivanka -- whose mum Ivana was a Czech champion skier and model -- graced her first magazine cover, Seventeen, back in 1997, when she was just 16.

She then walked the runway for Versace, Marc Bouwer and Thierry Mugler, and featured in ads for Tommy Hilfiger and Sasson Jeans.

Today, Ivanka runs a lifestyle Web site, Ivankatrump.com and also has a clothing and accessory line, the Ivanka Trump Collection.

With over 2 million followers on Twitter and 1.8 million on Instagram, Ivanka is as active on social media as her dad, doling out fashion advice to her followers.

During the election campaign, when The Donald, wildly strayed from script and his campaign staff ran amuck, Ivanka and her husband, billionaire realtor Jared Kushner, restored order and talked sense into the candidate.

After her parents' messy divorce, which her brothers Donald Jr and Eric took badly, Ivanka made it a point to reach out to her dad, spending time in his office after school.

Clearly, she is the favourite among Trump's five children from his three marriages.

A look at some of Ivanka's memorable fashion moments:

1. When she painted the Met Gala red with her FAVOURITE men in tow
