Ivanka Trump

Celebrity Relative / Model

Born: 30 October 1981
Birthplace: New York City, New York
Best known as: The daughter of real estate mogul Donald Trump
Ivanka Trump is the daughter of President-elect Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana. She played a prominent role in Donald Trump's successful 2016 run for president. A tall and elegant blonde, Ivanka Trump began modeling as a teen, her career helped along by the Trump name and by her mother's own background as a model. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School with a bachelor's degree in economics in 2004; the next year she joined the Trump Organization and eventually became executive vice president of development and acquisitions. Her 2006 appearances on her father's show The Apprentice pushed her to a new prominence, and she launched her own line of jewelry, the Ivanka Trump Collection. She also inherited, as The New York Times put it, "her father's prodigious flair for self-promotion," and in 2007 Harper's Bazaar magazine called her "The New Queen of Diamonds." As Donald Trump began his presidential campaign, Ivanka spoke often on his behalf and served as a confidante to her father; Politico called her "his most influential adviser, his de facto first lady in waiting and his character foil." She is the author of the 2009 book The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.
