On Tuesday night, for the first state dinner hosted by the Trump administration, Ivanka Trump wore a $17,000 dress.

The first daughter opted for a pink tulle ruffle gown from Rodarte. According to the product’s description on Matchesfashion.com, the piece is “crafted to swathe the figure, with ruffles floating across the boat neck and V-shaped back, a striking blossom embellishment at the pleated waist, and a floor-skimming tiered skirt.”

The embroidered dress was made in the United States (Melania Trump went with a French label), with the American sisters behind the brand, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, a firm fave of celebrities.

In fact, Kirsten Dunst walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in the same gown in 2017 and Millie Bobby Brown wore a white version of the dress in February.

Ivanka’s look was met with mixed reviews, with many critics calling out the high price tag.
