While she was just a model, the brown-haired Ivanka Trump changed her image to a bright blonde, being a blonde; is not a crime… Karl Aiken, a close friend of the Trump family, once famously said: “I think her father actually listens to her, and when I say, listen to her, I mean that her father respects her very much, and not only because she is his daughter.” Who is the real Ivanka – a favorite in both the Trump household and increasingly in America?

With such a famous name and chic appearance, it was not difficult for her to succeed.
Nevertheless, she was quickly bored with modeling business and when it came to choosing the life she would pursue, Ivanka easily said goodbye to her fantasies related to the catwalk, and fully devoted herself to her studies. Her father was impressed with her decision to follow this path, as he said: “She was a successful model, but she gave up this career for the sake of the Wharton School of Business. She said that she is better to mess with real estate than walking down the podium.”

I cannot and I do not want to give up my favorite work, but I must admit that I constantly struggle with a sense of guilt because I’m not at home with my children.” Recently she sent some confusing message to her smallest son Theodore.

Happy birthday little teddy bear!” This tweet provoked a bit ironic response from her Twitter followers because it wasn’t actually his birthday!
