  • Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, has displayed a remarkable transformation from

  • heiress to fashion designer, businesswoman, wife, mother, and two-time published author.

  • No matter what you might think of her father, there's no denying that Ivanka Trump has both

  • the fashion and business sense to carry her far in her own right.

  • Here's a look at the stunning transformation of Ivanka Trump.

  • From boarding school to modeling

  • When Ivanka was still a teenager, she transferred from the Chapin Day School in New York City

  • to Choate Rosemary Hall, a boarding school in Wallingford, Connecticut.

  • The change wasn't easy, as she told Marie Claire.

  • "I was all of a sudden in the prison of boarding-school life, and all my friends in New York were

  • having fun."

  • To have an excuse to travel rather than being at the boarding school all the time, she started

  • modeling, signing with Elite Model Management at the age of 14.

  • Her early career included a spread in Elle and Tommy Hilfiger ads, before landing the

  • cover of Seventeen in 1997.

  • She also walked runway fashion shows and co-hosted the Miss Teen USA pageant in 1997, which was

  • owned by her father.

  • Even though her modeling career was hot, she wasn't ready to make a long term career out

  • of it.

  • She ditched modeling for college

  • Despite a successful modeling career, Ivanka was destined for a different path, so she

  • began her college career at Georgetown University where she studied for two years before transferring

  • to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where her father attended.

  • She graduated with a degree in economics, the same as her dad, in 2004.

  • Even during college she was doing speaking engagements, like in 2003 when she spoke at

  • the Television Critics Association to promote the film she appeared in, Born Rich.

  • Venturing into the business world

  • After graduation, Ivanka worked briefly at Forest City Enterprises as a project manager,

  • which was her first professional introduction to working in real estate, despite her personal

  • connection to the business through her father.

  • According to her, it was important to her to prove that she had the chops for the business.

  • In 2007, two years after joining her father's company, she founded Trump Hotels with her

  • brothers.

  • She returned to fashion

  • Although Ivanka had left the modeling world behind, she wasn't quite ready to abandon

  • her ties to fashion altogether.

  • In 2007 she joined forces with a diamond vendor to create Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, a line

  • of diamond and gold jewelry "for women buying for themselves".

  • Just a few years later she expanded the line to include shoes and handbags for working

  • women.

  • The line has since grown even further to include apparel, accessories, home accents, fragrance

  • and sunglasses.

  • When she introduced her father as Republican presidential candidate, it was in a $138 dress

  • from her own fashion line.

  • She's an author

  • In 2009, Ivanka published her first book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and

  • Life, and celebrated with her signature funky-glam look.

  • She told The Zoe Report in 2014 that when it comes to feeling and looking glam, her

  • go-to pieces are

  • "an amazing pair of heels and a piece of statement jewelry."

  • She added,

  • "...any outfit is elevated when well accessorized."

  • Her sequined dress and sparkly hoops are a stunning example of this philosophy, and are

  • as eye-catching as her smile, which she pairs with a deep, on-trend smokey eye.

  • Even at her book release, she was attracting fans.

  • The book made it to the New York Times bestseller list.

  • She has since penned a second book, Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success,

  • which is set to be published in 2017.

  • A classy wedding

  • While Ivanka was raised Presbyterian, she made the decision to convert to Orthodox Judaism

  • after studying for over a year.

  • She then married her husband, businessman Jared Kushner, in a Jewish ceremony in 2009

  • where she wore a custom Vera Wang gown as well as earrings and other jewels from her

  • own jewelry line.

  • Ivanka described to Brides how she imagined herself walking down the aisle, saying,

  • "I would say I am a traditional/classic bride.

  • This style is translated in my dress and jewelry choice."

  • On designing the dress, Vera Wang told The New York Times,

  • "...she was actually very much about being covered and I seized on the chance to do a

  • dress that wasn't naked and very Hollywood."

  • Pregnancy didn't hold her back

  • By 2011, Ivanka was pregnant with her first child.

  • Despite her growing belly, Ivanka still worked hard as a businesswoman.

  • Forbes described her as the "world's hardest working extremely pregnant heiress" when it

  • was discovered she was working right up through her due date.

  • On maternity style in general, Ivanka told The Wall Street Journal,

  • "...you spend the better part of your youth experimenting and trying to find a style that

  • fits your body type, and all that gets thrown out the window."

  • Her history with the Clintons

  • Despite Hillary Clinton's run against her father in the 2016 presidential election,

  • Ivanka is close friends with Clinton's daughter, Chelsea.

  • "I think we have great respect for each other and that hasn't changed, she's a great girl

  • and she's been a great friend to me, and obviously the intensity and the scrutiny of this moment

  • in our lives is pretty extreme."

  • Surprisingly, Ivanka has said that, like many millennials, she doesn't consider herself

  • categorically Republican or a Democrat.

  • In 2007, she donated $1,000 to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and in 2012,

  • Ivanka endorsed Mitt Romney for president.

  • Then, just a year later in 2013, Ivanka and her husband hosted a fundraiser for Democrat

  • Cory Booker's U.S. Senate campaign and bundled contributions of more than $40,000.

  • Chelsea Clinton told Vogue that Ivanka sometimes reminds her of her father, Bill Clinton, saying,

  • "She's always aware of everyone around her and ensuring that everyone is enjoying the

  • moment.

  • It's an awareness that in some ways reminds me of my dad, and his ability to increase

  • the joy of the room."

  • 2016 presidential election

  • From 2013 to 2015, Ivanka mostly remained out of the limelight, focused on her business

  • ventures.

  • When Donald Trump announced his run for president, she stood up for him about his remarks on

  • immigration and the way he treats and feels about women, and has served as the face of

  • the campaign's outreach to women.

  • She also spoke out directly about her father's 2005 comments about assaulting women:

  • "This tape was over a decade old.

  • I'm sure he didn't remember this conversation, but was very embarrassed by it.

  • And he expressed that not only to me personally, but to the American people and I appreciate

  • that he did that.

  • I think it was very, very important for him to have done so."

  • She stands by her father, while calling herself a "huge advocate for women and women's issues."

  • She responded by vowing to be an advocate for women in her role in her father's presidency.

  • The future of Ivanka's brand

  • As a result of the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election, voters began calling

  • for a boycott of all Trump-affiliated products, including Ivanka's brand, and a full boycott

  • of stores who continued to sell her brand.

  • When asked about the boycott, she seemed unconcerned.

  • "Well the beauty of America is people can do what they like, but I'd prefer to talk

  • to the millions, tens of millions of American women who are inspired by the brand and the

  • message that I've created."

  • While the Trump name may, to many, be in conflict with what Ivanka wants her brand represent,

  • to she doesn't seem too worried.

  • With a potential role in the White House, she has bigger concerns.
