Professional skier, shopping magnate, businesswoman and socialite: Ivana Trump (who died today) made a name for herself wherever she went.
Before her divorce from Donald Trump in 1990, Ivana was one half of the quintessential 1980s power couple, with the pair becoming synonymous with the flashy excess of the late twentieth century.
With her active involvement in the New York social scene, Ivana garnered almost as much media attention as her then husband. Her lively personality and daring fashion choices made her a fixture on the societal fixtures, attending everything from weddings and charitable galas to Barbara Walters’ four-month wedding anniversary celebration.
We take a visual walk through the style lexicon of the Czech American businesswoman who embodied what it meant to be a socialite in the ‘80s and ‘90s. One thing is clear – this woman knew how to party.
