Ivana Trump made a pretty bold sartorial statement Wednesday, when she stepped out for a rare solo excursion on New York’s Upper East Side.
The 72-year-old ex-wife of former President Donald Trump was dressed to perfection for her city walk, for which she donned a western-inspired denim jumpsuit with two breast pockets and bold white thread.
But while the former model stuck to a monochromatic palette as far as her outfit goes, she added a lot of color with her accessories, including a long necklace with rainbow beads, a cowboy-esque turquoise belt buckle and matching turquoise earrings dangling from her. lobes as she stepped down the sidewalk.
She finished off her outfit with a pair of simple black pointed-toe pumps and her favorite $4,500 Dior handbag.

Always glamorous, Ivana went all out with her beauty look for the day – sporting bold pink eyeshadow and thick black eyeliner, while her signature blonde locks were styled in her signature beehive updo.
Ivana — who had three children with her ex-husband Donald, 75: Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka — looked lost in thought as she sauntered down the sidewalk.
While the businesswoman is no stranger to the upscale neighborhood where she’s lived for decades, she’s rarely photographed alone, preferring instead to be in the company of her on-again-off-again partner Rossano Rubicondi, 49, or her close friends.
Last night, Ivana was spotted shopping near her home with a female companion, whose arm she was holding as they exited a luxury shoe store.
This summer seems to have been relatively quiet for Ivana – who usually travels to Europe during the warmer months, but seems to have refrained from long-haul travel, perhaps due to the COVID pandemic.
Instead, the businesswoman has been spotted in New York a few times, including a leisurely stroll with Rossano in August.
It is unclear if the duo is currently in a romantic relationship; they’ve always maintained that they’re just really good friends, although Rossano has said before that a romantic reunion is always possible.

Ivana announced their split in June 2019 before fleeing to Saint-Tropez for the summer, admitting that the time she spent on the French Riviera was part of the reason she and her longtime beau couldn’t make their relationship work. .
“The relationship just ran its course,” she told Page Six. “Rossano spends a lot of time in Italy and I’ve spent a lot of time in New York, Miami and Saint-Tropez, and he has to work.”
“The long-distance relationship really doesn’t work,” she added. “We had a good time and are friends. The break up was amicable.’
Rossano, meanwhile, claimed he has “great respect” for the businesswoman after their breakup, but he later made it clear that her children were a source of anger in their romance.
He emphasized that he was not after the matriarch’s fortune and suggested that he often argued with her children about money.
The former couple dated for six years before they tied the knot in 2008 in a lavish $3 million ceremony at Mar-A-Lago, the Palm Beach estate owned by none other than Ivana’s second ex-husband, Donald. Trump.
But just eight months after their Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding, Ivana and Rossano announced their impending divorce.
Ivana said she filed for divorce three months earlier, blaming her and Rossano’s different hometown preferences.

The couple had been dealing with rumors that Rossano had been unfaithful to her while filming the TV show Survivor in Honduras, which Ivana denied in her column in Page Six a month before their split.
Rossano was Ivana’s fourth husband after Alfred Winklmayr, Donald and Riccardo Mazzucchelli, but the two didn’t stay apart for long.
Ivana has lived in New York City since the mid-1970s, having moved to the US from Canada after moving from her home in Czechoslovakia, and has spent much of that time on the Upper East Side, where she currently lives in a sprawling apartment.
It was in Manhattan where the former model met Trump, whom she married in 1977. The couple was married for 13 years before divorcing in 1990 after Trump had an affair with Marla Maples, who later became his second wife.
Ivana’s solo outing came just as her former husband Donald and current wife Melania, 51, were thrust back into the spotlight – this time in the Middle East, where wax figures of them were unveiled at the newly opened Madame Tussauds museum in Dubai. .

The pair, who have kept themselves relatively inconspicuous since losing reelection last year, are just two of the stars immortalized at the tourist-friendly wax museum, known for its celebrity likeness.
The new branch is located on a small man-made island near Dubai, where the wax figures of 60 celebrities and world leaders were unveiled on Wednesday at the opening.
The statue of Trump, dressed in his signature navy blue suit and red tie, sits at a desk, but he does not sign any executive orders or documents. He looks at his cellphone.
Next to him is Melania’s figure, dressed in a form-fitting cobalt blue dress, one of her classic looks from the 2016 presidential campaign.
“It looks very real, but it’s not quite orange enough,” said 27-year-old visitor Marwa al-Haddad after taking a selfie with Trump’s likeness.
Trump’s first wax figure debuted in Madame Tussauds New York in 1997, long before he became a politician.
His effigy received a presidential update at the New York site in 2017, a year before his wife got her own statue at the site.
Apart from their positions, the figures of the Trumps in Dubai appear identical to the versions shown in New York.
