Ivanka Trump was the belle of the ball on Thursday evening, when she attended a dinner at the royal palace in Rabat alongside her host, Princess Lalla Meryem of Morocco.
The first daughter looked radiant when she arrived at the royal residence in a golden caftan-like dress down to the floor, which is thought to have been made by the local designer Fadila El Gadi, who created all the looks of Ivanka during the trip.
Mother of three Ivanka immediately looked at home in her graceful environment in the dazzling design – her third outfit of the day – which she combined with some simple naked heels, so that all the focus remained on the beaded dress.

Matchy matchy: the 38-year-old's dress was almost identical in silhouette with the design worn by the princess, with both women choosing kaftan-like dresses to the floor
Close friends: the ladies seemed excited when they chatted during dinner because they already enjoyed afternoon tea together earlier in the week
The long dress had piping along the neckline and at the front, and it had a built-in belt to tighten Ivanka's waist and show off her natural curves.
To top off the look, the White House adviser had her short blonde locks withdrawn into a bulky updo and added a few large pearl earrings as a last sparkle.
It seems that Ivanka certainly received the memo as far as the dress code of the evening is concerned, because her elegant dress was almost identical to the beautiful dress worn by the princess, who chose a deep blue, pink and gold design.
Both women were cheerfully radiated as they invaded their dinner, apparently attached during their first meeting on Wednesday, when Princess Meryem met Ivanka at the airport, before enjoying afternoon tea together.
Since then, Ivanka has had an incredibly busy schedule, visiting a number of different local areas, while showing off an impressive array of wardrobe options during the process.

She then injected a little edge into the look with a funky patterned cape that she wore over the long-sleeved dress.
The fashion piece, which looks like it was made by a local designer, had gold and teal blue patterns over its beige fabric, while the upper and lower third of the design were covered with black cross shapes.
Ivanka clearly wanted to embrace a more glamorous style for her night out, and let go of her short blonde hair from the updo she had modeled earlier in the day, and she seemed to have added a little more makeup to her glamorous look.
