Donald Trump’s 23-year-old daughter is carving out a space in the fashion spotlight, too.
Tiffany Trump, the daughter of President-elect Donald Trump and former wife Marla Maples, has been working with celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch on her inaugural weekend looks, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
Bloch has been consulting with the mother-daughter duo as a “friend of the family,” he says, noting that he has known Tiffany since she was a little girl. “I want to see her have a moment,” says the stylist, adding that while both women will be attending all of the inaugural events, along with the rest of the Trump family, they “do not have a glam squad.”
Bloch said that for Friday’s daytime events, including the presidential swearing-in, church service and parade, they are still deciding between coat-and-dress looks by American designer Elie Tahari and Toaray Wang, a Chinese designer who shows at New York Fashion Week. For Friday night’s inaugural balls, they’re looking at glam, champagne-colored gowns by Los Angeles-based label Simin Couture. “That was a Tiffany find that got my approval,” the stylist says of Simin Taghdiri, an Iranian-American designer who is based on Robertson Boulevard and has dressed Ivanka Trump (as seen in the Instagram post below), Lisa Vanderpump, Gigi Hadid and Abigail Breslin in her creations, which start at $400 and go into the thousands of dollars.
Tiffany grew up in Los Angeles. She is a 2016 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania who is a social media personality, a former Vogue intern and has recently been seen touring law schools. She was in the news earlier this week when her friend, Scream Queens star Abigail Breslin, was attacked on social media for posting a picture with her pal. And mom Marla landed in hot water when it was reported she had asked a local hairstylist for free hairstyling services for herself and her daughter on Inauguration Day.
Bloch began styling in the early 1990s when the role of Hollywood stylist was still fairly new, and worked with a whopping 12 celebrities at the 1997 Oscars, including Sandra Bullock, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez and Salma Hayek. He also has functioned in the role on television, including The Tyra Banks Show and America’s Top Model.
“I’m in the princess business, and I make dreams come true,” Bloch says. “I’m honored to serve the first daughter of our country. This isn’t about politics, it’s about a cool girl.”
