Ivanka Trump was snubbed on an American fashion show when a contestant hit out at Karlie Kloss’ relationship with the senior adviser to US President Donald Trump. On Project Runway, the contestant made a joke about Karlie Kloss wearing his outfit to “dinner with the Kushners”. While other contestants gasped, Ms Kloss didn’t appear to be amused as she was stunned into silence before telling him to “keep it to the challenge”.
Ms Kloss, who is a Democrat, is married to Jared Kushner’s younger brother, Joshua Kushner.
She told British Vogue: “It’s been hard.
“But I choose to focus on the values that I share with my husband, and those are the same liberal values that I was raised with and that have guided me throughout my life.”
The couple have tried to distance themselves from the Trumps but Ivanka has openly addressed their relationship on social media.

The First Daughter congratulated the couple on their engagement and said: “I feel blessed to have you as a sister.”
Ivanka also cheered on Ms Kloss as she became a host on Project Runway.
She posted a video on Twitter and said: “Gosh Karlie, it’s happening! Amazing. Project Runway. Karlie is host! [laughs] Epic.”
But Ms Kloss didn’t respond to the video whatsoever and doesn’t follow Ivanka back on the social media site.
Their relationship is described at “cordial” but “not close” by CNN reporter Kate Bennett in an explosive new book, Free Melania.
The First Lady believes the US President’s oldest daughter is “invading her turf” with constant international trips.
Ivanka accompanies Donald Trump on many overseas trips as one of his senior advisers.
According to New York Times, Ms Bennett wrote: “The trips were, according to a source, too close for comfort for Melania, who thought Ivanka was invading her turf.”
