Ivanka Trump rectified her Instagram gaffe after cropping her brother’s fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle out of photos from the family wedding over the weekend.
Ivanka, 41, was maid of honor at the wedding of her half-sister Tiffany Trump, 29, on Saturday. She married 25-year-old billionaire Michael Boulos, who she met on vacation with Lindsay Lohan in Mykonos in 2018.
All of the family members were in pastel-colored or gold dresses, except for Guilfoyle, 53, who stood out in black at the end of the line of women.
Ivanka’s light blue dress was a replica of the gown Grace Kelly wore in the 1955 film To Catch a Thief – a parallel that raised eyebrows, given Donald Trump’s current legal battles, and his claims of the 2020 election being stolen.
Ivanka shared photos of Tiffany’s big day at Mar-a-Lago, with their father Donald Trump walking his daughter up the aisle beneath a pastel-hued floral arch, and with the pastel-wearing bridal party – with one photo in particular drew attention.
Tiffany, in her sparkling Elie Saab gown, was in the center with her mother Marla Maples dressed in mauve on her right, next to her sister-in-law Lara Trump in a gold-sparkle dress.
To Tiffany’s left was her stepmother Melania Trump, in a gold-hued gown, and Ivanka in her baby blue dress. Next to Ivanka was Guilfoyle, all in black.
But in the photos Ivanka shared on social media, Guilfoyle had been cropped out, in what some fans claimed was a snub against Don Jr’s fiancee.
However Ivanka appears to have acknowledged her social media faux pas by sharing the original photo of all six women on her Instagram story with heart emojis.
The original photo showed Tiffany Trump surrounded by pastel-clad family members – all bar one. From left: Tiffany’s sister-in-law Lara Trump; her mother Marla Maples; Tiffany Trump; her stepmother Melania Trump; her half-sister Ivanka Trump; Don Jr’s fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle
Ivanka shared a cropped photo on Twitter, with the black-wearing Guilfoyle cropped out, but four hours later she shared the original image on her Instagram story with a love emoji
Ivanka did not delete the original post on her story, which she followed up with some footage of the former President giving her some golf lessons, simply reposting the original photo four hours later.
Don Jr., 44, brought fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle, 53, to his younger sister’s wedding with the family appearing in high spirits – though experts claimed her choice of colour could have been considered a gaffe.
‘In many instances, especially here in the United States, wearing black to a wedding has been seen as a fashion faux pas because typically the color black is associated with mourning,’ said wedding etiquette expert Elaine Swann, in an interview with Brides magazine last year.
But, she added, the color was gaining acceptance among modern brides.
Swann added: ‘It is absolutely acceptable for a female to wear a black dress to a wedding. Always avoid wearing anything that’s too low cut, too short, or too tight.’
It is not known whether Tiffany asked her guests to wear pastel colors.
Swann said if a bride made such a request, it should be strictly adhered to.
The family had all gathered to watch as Tiffany, 29, said ‘I do,’ to 25-year-old billionaire Michael Boulos. The happy couple are pictured here with Tiffany’s mother, Marla Maples, who donned a lavender Elie Saab gown, and her father, former President Donald Trump

Don Jr., 44, brought fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle, 53, to his younger sister’s wedding, and Kimberly’s son Ronan, 16. Guilfoyle was married to Ronan’s father Eric Villency from 2006-9
Don Jr posted that all five of his children with ex-wife, Vanessa, behaved themselves at the extravagant wedding
Guilfoyle, 53, a former Fox News host, has been dating Don Jr, 44, since 2018.
The pair got engaged on New Year’s Eve in 2020.
Both Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner and Guilfoyle and Trump Jr live in Florida, with their homes only 80 miles apart.
Ivanka and Kushner are building a home in Indian Creek near Miami; Trump Jr and Guilfoyle bought a $9.7 million home in Jupiter, north of West Palm Beach.
But they are not believed to be close.
Ivanka and her husband are said to be ‘done’ with Washington DC, and have no intention of returning to the White House if Trump runs again and wins.
Guilfoyle and Trump Jr, on the other hand, remain extremely active on the campaign scene and are believed to be encouraging Trump to go for a second term.
The women also have very different style: Ivanka is diplomatic and reticent, while Guilfoyle, famed for her eyebrow-raising speeches, is flamboyant and outspoken.
It is unclear whether they were seated near each other at the wedding, or if they spend time together.
