Ivanka, an influential White House adviser, introduced her father and incumbent US President Donald Trump during a speech at the event on Thursday.
Mr Trump later formally accepted his party’s nomination to take on Democrat challenger Joe Biden in the US' November election as he brought the four-day convention to a close.
But it was the seemingly frosty exchange between Melania and Ivanka which piqued social media users' interest and prompted the creation of an array of memes.

5) So weird
The conclusion of the Republican convention came as the US continues to gear up towards the November 3 presidential election.
Mr Trump, 74, said on Thursday that "at no time before have voters faced a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies or two agendas".
