Pretty in Punk – Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump had a punk phase when she was a kid. LoL.
If youth is often characterized as embodying disaffection with the status quo, then no single subculture has more stridently captured the spirit of ‘fuck u’ rebellion than punk. And Ivanka, once an angsty and tweaked out teen, went full ‘fuck u oi, oi’ punk way back when, at least according to her hot to trot mum.
In her mom’s intriguing new parenting memoir, Raising Trump, Ivanka apparently had a punk and grunge phase. “One day after school, I dyed my hair blue,” according to the First Daughter’s mom. “Mom wasn’t a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice ‘n Easy.”
Moreover, Ivanka’s wardrobe was once comprised of “ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts.” She also had a penchant for blasting Nirvana and was heartbroken when Kurt Cobain blew his brains out. “It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathized only so much,” she wrote.
“After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone — major melodrama — Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.” Naturally, a few people aren’t convinced of Ivanka’s punk street cred. From social media:
“Her punk phase involved heavy eyeliner, ‘Complicated’ by Avril Lavigne and trying to ride a skateboard once while being trailed by chauffeur,” said one Twitter user.

Anyway, we love you, Ivanka. You’d be the prettiest punk ever.
