#Ivanka Trump slays when it comes to fashion and style. Her clothing makes headlines almost as much as she does being her father's special assistant. The first daughter has a fresh, classic look that has redefined what professional women in the White House wear. Ivanka is commonly seen in light colors and favors a whimsy style. This look was seen during her most recent visit to Hamburg, Germany when she attended the G-20 Summit. According to one #Political Analyst, Ivanka's dress at the summit wasn't a good choice due it's "girlie" appearance.

Representing the U.S. in pink dress with bows

Political analyst, Joan Walsh, told MSNBC host, Thomas Roberts that Ivanka Trump's pale pink dress with large bows on the sleeves was too "girlie" for the event.

She pointed out that it's especially ironic the first daughter wore the piece when she had to sit in for the U.S. president when he stepped away for some meetings -- something got a lot of people fired up.

Walsh didn't want to sound "sexist" about commenting on Ivanka's choice of clothing, but she thought the dress " incredibly ornamental" and certainly not a dress made for work or what one would wear "to go out in the world and make a difference" in. Representing the U.S. is nothing to take lightly and Walsh feels that Ivanka's dress didn't symbolize the enormity of it.

" ... Don’t then tell us that you are crusading for an equal place for women at the table because you’re not," Walsh argued.

Most at the G-20 Summit were seen in dark suits or clothing. German Chancellor Angela Merkel did wear a green pantsuit, but it lacked the "girlie" accents of bows. Additionally, head of the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde wore a white suit. Again, however, it lacked the ultra-feminine touches.

President views Ivanka as 'property' in his administration?

Walsh went on to analyze Ivanka Trump's true position within her father's administration. She said that the way Donald Trump values his daughter is the equivalent to how "patriarchal, authoritarian societies" value their daughters -- as "property." Walsh thinks Ivanka was sending a message about her own value," about her place in the White House, and about the place of women in this administration, I think, are really, pretty frightening.”

The political analyst did note that it's possible to wear a "girlie" dress and fight for women's rights simultaneously, but Ivanka Trump's pink dress was contradictory. Do you agree with Joan Walsh's assessment of the first daughter's dress at the G-20 Summit?
