Ivanka on Fashion, Weight Loss & 'Apprentice'

It was a Trump family affair last night in NYC as the Donald's famous daughter, Ivanka, debuted her 2012 fashion line at Lord & Taylor.
Sporting her own reasonably priced, career-oriented duds, Trump's modelesque offspring introduced her new ready-to-wear collection (with 10 percent of sales from the evening benefit The UN's GIRL UP campaign ) to the world with her mom, dad, husband and a healthy scattering of her siblings sitting front row center.
"[It's been] a lot of fun," beamed an excited Ivanka just moments before her line's runway debut, which essentially combines her various collections. "What's nice about it is seeing all the different lines come together. I started with the jewelry, then shoes, then hand bags, then coats and most recently, apparel."
In addition to her fashion pursuits, the multi-talented Trump has been uber-busy in the past months caring for her newborn daughter Arabella as well as fulfilling her boardroom duties on the wildly-popular Celebrity Apprentice. Ivanka made a quick return to the show post-baby, a decision she says may have been a bit impulsive.
"We started filming two months after Arabella was born. I watched the first episode and I was like 'ouch'," she says wincing at the memory. "You think you're looking good [she laughs]...That took me a while to get over, but with each episode I seem to be slimming down a bit."

As always, you can catch the fabulous Ivanka on Celebrity Apprentice airing Sundays on NBC.
