Ivanka Trump's miniskirt is too short for Japan, says social media: 'Inappropriate!'

The Japanese have been huge fans of Ivanka Trump‘s style, but the miniskirt she wore to a women’s conference in Tokyo may have changed that.

Wearing a $1,960, bubble-gum pink Miu Miu crepe jacket with a matching miniskirt, Ivanka, 36, took the podium at the World Assembly for Women on Friday. After being introduced by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is reputed to have established a “bromance” with President Trump over their united front against North Korea, Ivanka spoke on workplace harassment and economic empowerment for women.

But the public questioned her hemline.

The scrutiny felt familiar. In September, Melania Trump appeared at the United Nations to give a speech denouncing bullying, in a $2,950 oversized pink dress by Delpozo, and was ridiculed for the overly bright outfit.

Casting further shade on Ivanka’s trip were reports of the meager audience that turned out to hear her speak. After media outlets reported that the room was half-empty, commenters on social media drew parallels with the controversial issue of attendance at President Trump’s inauguration.

Later that evening, Ivanka joined Abe for dinner wearing a $1,995 pink, silk kimono-inspired dress with a black obi bow designed by Johanna Ortiz, with black pumps and her hair in beachy waves.
