Even beautiful, powerful businesswomen (and fashion designers in their own right) sometimes have trouble choosing what to wear, so Ivanka Trump is putting one such decision to her fans.

Winter may be in full force this season of New York Fashion Week, but for Ivanka Trump, Kristin Cavallari, Paris Hilton and Hailey Baldwin, it may as well be spring (and much, much warmer than the below-freezing temps N.Y.C. has been experiencing). These four stylish stars are ignoring the weather reports and envisioning spring in their unfit-for-the-frigid-temps ensembles.

It might only be Wednesday, but Ivanka’s Instagram post featured a very #TBT-worthy fashion statement: a glittering, fringe-y Bob Mackie number borrowed from her mom Ivana’s closet. Here’s Ivanka wearing the dress this week, and a snap of her mom wearing it in 1991:

Tonight’s the big night! The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala (newly renamed the Anna Wintour Costume Center and otherwise known as the Fashion Prom) is only hours away and we have spent the day finding the best social moments that you can’t miss. With tables full of makeup, animal attacks and beauty teams galore, it’s crazy to see how much work has lead up to tonight’s event.
Who had your favorite social moment of the night? Let us know in the comments below!
How did designer Ivanka Trump get ideas for her latest collections of clothing and accessories? By walking through her hometown and museum-hopping.
“It’s a fashion homage to this great city,” Trump tells PEOPLE about her fall apparel, handbag, jewelry and footwear. “The central inspiration was a walk through New York. So we have a MoMA-inspired collection, a Metropolitan Museum of Art collection and a floral collection evocative of the seasonal flowers in Central Park.”
Trump also reveals the type of woman she designs for, and that woman happens to sound a lot like the mogul herself. “She is professional, smart, polished, sophisticated, but youthful and likes to have fun,” the designer explains. She adds that it’s key to create clothing for women who are working, but also have a social life, saying that the transition “from day-to-night is very important to me.”
When Ivanka Trump met teen jewelry designer Linda Cifuentes in May, the day was filled with lots of laughter. But just months before, Cifuentes’s life hadn’t been so happy.
Adopted two years ago, 16-year-old Cifuentes was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma earlier this year. As she battled the disease from her hospital bed, her mother brought her beads to make jewelry with. In time, she realized she had quite a talent — and a passion was born.
Now in remission — and busy planning her Quinceañera — Cifuentes was recently granted a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and got to spend a day with Trump at her SoHo jewelry boutique. Her family — four of her sisters, plus her parents — came along for the trip, spending a weekend at the Trump SoHo hotel.
