Where is Barron Trump? President-elect's youngest son missing from inaugural festivities

Melania Trump on Thursday picked a little-known NY designer of Hispanic descent and daughter of a wounded veteran, for her first outfit celebrating husband Donald's presidential inauguration.

"I think it's an inappropriate observation", Ivanka told "20/20" in regards to rumors that she'll be assuming first lady duties in Melania's absence. America is a country that likes their celebrations and when President Donald Trump is sworn on Friday morning, he will have numerous pre-inauguration events under his belt. With Melania Trump choosing to remain primarily in NY with their young son Barron for the first few months of the new administration and Ivanka separating herself from her own business, speculation grew that she would take over the ceremonial duties that would normally fall to Melania. Some of that is in part due in part to her insisting on a semi-private life during her husband's campaign (save a few speeches and interviews), but she never seemed particularly stoked about becoming first lady.

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have quickly ascended to become Washington's new power couple.

Currently, sources are saying Ralph Lauren will be dressing her for the Inauguration day festivities and is also preparing a gown for one of the many balls. "She's been a business partner with him", McBride said.

While Melania Trump's meeting with Michelle Obama was highly publicized, Trump noted that Ivanka had spoken to the outgoing FLOTUS as well. "Did she even ask Tom Ford?".

Since Hillary Clinton's residency, Watson has compiled his Report to the First Lady for every new White House occupant.

"The 35-year-old businesswoman and former model was responding to a question from ABC's Deborah Roberts about her reaction "when people that she's going to be, essentially, the real first lady". He also says he'll have some of the biggest celebrities in the world there. Marc Jacobs told Women's Wear Daily that he "has no interest whatsoever in dressing Melania Trump". "He says many things that I don't like".

So, how do we understand the "Slovakian sphinx", as Maureen Dowd called her in the New York Times?

Ivanka Trump will no longer be participating in the management of the Trump Organization, and she will resign from all office/director positions in her company brand.
