Ivanka Trump reads to children with Betsy DeVos and snaps selfies at museum before speaking at a Mike Pence fundraiser

17:37 • 26.07.17



Ivanka Trump showed off her maternal side on Tuesday as she spent time with a group of children during a museum visit in Washington DC.


The businesswoman and mother-of-three was joined by Betsy DeVos at the Smithsonian for a special event aimed at getting early school age girls interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.


Ivanka, 35, was in high spirits for the occasion. She gave an animated reading of the children's book Rosie Revere, Engineer for the group before posing for selfies with the kids. 


The first daughter then spent her evening speaking at a fundraiser for Vice President Mike Pence, the Daily Mail reports.


During her speech, Ivanka said the vice president had been an ally to her father and that Republicans ought to start preparing for the 2018 elections. 


The room was full of Republican donors. 


For her trip to the museum, Ivanka wore the same blue lace dress and heels that she was spotted leaving her home in earlier in the day.

 

She paired the $895 Jonathan Simkhai dress with some nude suede pumps and added an elegant set of drop earrings to complete her look. 

DeVos opted for a bold, blue pantsuit which she wore with a white t-shirt underneath and a pair of blindingly bright white pumps.


The visit to the museum brought a no-doubt-needed injection of levity to the first daughter's Washington agenda. 


While Ivanka has spent her time focusing on the role of women in the workforce and how best the government can support them, her husband Jared Kushner has been dogged by scrutiny over his contact with Russian officials.

  Ivanka and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos were at the museum to promote STEM education among girls 

The pair both read from the book, which tells the story of a young engineer, to the group of girls gathered beneath
