For inauguration events, Ivanka Trump wore three Oscar de la Renta ensembles. But for the grand finale, the first daughter switched things up and opted for a piece from Carolina Herrera.

The businesswoman and Herrera have been friendly for years. In November 2015, Herrera presented Trump with an award at 19th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards. A year later, the entrepreneur posed on the cover of Town & Country magazine in a pink, gauzy Herrera dress while pregnant with her third child.

While designers are divided on whether or not to dress first lady Melania Trump, Herrera supported her. “I think that in two or three months, they’ll reach out, because it’s fashion. You’ll see everyone dressing Melania. She’s representing the United States,” she told Business of Fashion.
