Why does Tiffany, Donald Trump’s youngest daughter, often copy her sister Ivanka’s style?
Tiffany and Ivanka Trump are half-sisters, and their story may explain why their looks are so similar
Does Tiffany Trump too often copy Ivanka Trump’s style? Or do the two sisters call each other to dress in a coordinated fashion?
The suspicion arose spontaneously after the latest case, the White House celebrations for Father Donald Trump’s birthday, which brought all the children together to celebrate in style. Tiffany appeared in a sleeveless sheath dress, white with black profiles and black veil inserts on her bust. In her blond hair, a black headband coordinated with her outfit.
Tiffany shared a photo of herself with her dad on her popular Instagram profile, giving him a loving dedication: “Happy birthday dad, I love you!”
And Ivanka Trump? The eldest daughter and adviser to the president wore a long-sleeved dress with a full skirt. The color was white, with black profiles. Not the exact same Tiffany dress, of course, but the vibe and choice of color palette are the same.
Of course, that’s not the only case where the Trump sisters look a lot alike, too. Even on the occasion of Donald’s swearing in as President of the United States, Tiffany and Ivanka were both in total white. Ivanka had made a more sartorial and elaborate choice, Tiffany had rather worn a sober pure white coat, but the effect was that of two twin sisters who cannot differ too much from each other…
Always white? Yes, because the women of the Trump family all have a love affair with this non-color. First Lady Melania Trump also often dresses in white, and Ivanka never misses an opportunity to wear short dresses in all shades of white, from cream to pure white.
And it’s not over yet. Months earlier, when Trump’s victory was announced, Ivanka and Tiffany were all overdressed the same. Both had chosen a blue dress, and despite the differences in style, they looked like twins when photographed side by side.
But to understand why Tiffany Trump often seems to copy her older sister’s style, perhaps it’s necessary to recap their story.
The story of Tiffany Trump, from illegitimate daughter to rightful heiress
Tiffany Trump was born from an extramarital affair between Donald Trump and Marla Maples, an American actress. At the time, it was in the early 90s, Donald was still married to Ivana Trump, mother of Ivanka, as well as Donald jr. and Eric. Marla Maples herself confessed to the affair on the covers of American newspapers, as well as her pregnancy. The scandal led to Donald and Ivana’s divorce, and the future US president married Marla two months after Tiffany’s birth in October 1993. Tiffany is named after the famous high-end jewelry brand, which was associated with the tycoon in New York.
Tiffany then grew up with her mother in California, especially after her parents divorced after only 6 years of marriage. While Tiffany was growing up and studying, Dad Donald paid her bills, but apparently Ivanka managed to reduce Tiffany’s “pocket money” to just $500 a week. Even now that they’re grown up, Tiffany and Ivanka have a rocky relationship, according to unnamed insiders.
But then, is their similar appearance a reflection of this particular relationship? Copy Ivanka Tiffany just looking for her approval? And how does Ivanka Trump feel about all that unsolicited admiration?
