Ivanka Trump’s profile had soared since her father Donald Trump became US president.

The 36-year-old is employed as an official advisor to Donald, 71, in the White House, alongside her husband Jared Kushner.

As one of her father’s closest confidants, Ivanka has sparked controversy for her high-level security clearance. She regularly represents her father at international events.

Most recently, she has been in Lima, Peru, for the CEO Summit of the Americas.

In an interview during her time in Peru, Ivanka revealed the best advice Donald had given her since being in the White House. “My father has taught me to be brave, to think big, and always do what I feel is right,” she told the El Comercio newspaper.

“He has taught me to stay focused on the work that lies ahead of me and never give up.”

The mother of three said her aim at the Summit of the Americas was to promote economic empowerment for women, noting a specific goal to increase the number of women in Latin America who open their own businesses.

She spoke at a press conference in Lima to unveil her plans. “While in Peru, I’m excited to announce a new initiative to propel women’s economic empowerment in the region.

“Furthermore, to underline the joint collaboration between the United States and Peru, both in the public and private sector.”

The first daughter also met with female CEOs and entrepreneurs at the Lima stock exchange to encourage women to take on more “leadership roles in the workplace.”

She also toured a quinoa factory and visited local female-owned businesses.

“Today I joined an impressive group of alumni from several US initiatives that empower emerging leaders, particularly women, and guide their path for future success! Thank you for sharing your inspiring experiences,” Trump posted on Instagram.

“This week, as countries come together across the Americas, we once again affirm the critical role of women in the economy,” she added.

“Today the Administration launched 2X Americas, a new US initiative which will commit $150 million & mobilise a total of $500 million to provide access to capital and economic opportunities for women in Latin America!”

During her visit, Ivanka attended a dinner for summit guests in a sleeveless red Calvin Klein dress, channelling Marilyn Monroe with her hair in soft waves.

She posed with Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra at the event, and afterwards tweeted two photos from the dinner with the message: “Dinner at the historic Huaca Pucllana with President @MartinVizcarraC, IDB President Moreno, US Cabinet Secretaries and CEOs, culminating a great first day at the CEO Summit of the Americas in Lima. #SummitAmericas.”

Vanity Fair noted that the dress came from the spring 2018 collection which was “about American horror and American beauty.”

Her time at the summit continued her trend of wearing expensive designer gowns, such as a nude-coloured Proenza Schouler dress, worn to the press conference, which costs $1,850 (£1,600).

She paired the dress, which fell past her knees, with dark blue stiletto pointed heels.

The fashionista had started the summit posing with business leaders in a blue and yellow floral-print dress from Altuzarra, which retails at $1,147 (£806).
