White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump joined President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday to witness a historic launch of America’s first manned space launch from U.S. soil before the mission was scrubbed due to incriminating weather.
For the historic launch, Ivanka wore a summer-ready floral print dress from Lela Rose. From the designer’s Spring 2020 collection, the floral print button-detailed midi dress consists of an elegant golden-yellow rose on the center of the white midi dress. It is made from a crisp blend of cotton and silk with delicate buttons fastening through the front of the dress. It features a squared neckline, thin straps, a front slit, and is cut for a slim fit. It retailed for $1,790 but is on sale for $1,074 at ModaOperandi.com.
She accessorized her look with donning a mask that matched her Lela Rose midi dress with yellow flowers. Ivanka completed her look with a pair of nude pumps and a white handbag from Max Mara that she held during the duration of the trip. The Max Mara Whitney leather small handbag retails for $1,080 and is available for purchase at Maxmara.com.
While this eye-catching floral midi dress is still available to purchase, below are affordable and similar floral midi dress one can purchase to mimic Ivanka’s look this Spring! Team it with nude pumps and a white handbag to emulate Ivanka’s Outfit of the Day.
The Senior advisor celebrated the historic moment earlier by sharing a throwback picture of herself visiting NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, in 2018.
“Looking back on an incredible visit to @nasajohnson with @nasa Administrator @jimbridenstine two years ago,’ she wrote captioning the Instagram images.
“Today I will join the President, @nasa and @spacex to watch the first launch of humans to orbit from United States soil in almost a decade – an important milestone in American’s renewed leadership in space!”
A tornado warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Brevard County, the location of Kennedy Space Center with less than three hours to go before the launch. Lift-off was scheduled for 4:33 p.m., but at 4:17 p.m. the mission was scrubbed. It has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 30, at 3:22 p.m.
“Due to the weather conditions, the launch is scrubbing,” NASA wrote. “Our next opportunity will be Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 pm ET.”
Ivanka brought two of three children with her to attend the launch. Shortly after the launch was scrubbed, Ivanka shared on social media that the delay was “disappointing” but that safety comes first.
President Trump vowed to return to Florida Saturday to watch NASA’s second attempt to launch SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule.
“Thank you to @NASA and @SpaceX for their hard work and leadership,” the president tweeted. “Look forward to being back with you on Saturday!”
