Dr. Miriam Adelson, the wife of prominent businessman and philanthropist Sheldon Adelson, arrived at the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday dressed as... Jerusalem.

The Israeli-born Adelson was spotted in a white flowing dress decorated with Jerusalem stone, adorned with the capital’s skyline, with edges flanked by two Jerusalem lions.

Down the back of the dress was printed in Hebrew “Im eshkachech Yerushalayim, tishkach yemini,” - the biblical phrase meaning: “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill”

By contrast, Ivanka Trump appeared in a rather staid cream skirt suit.

Adelson’s dress was reminiscent for many of the gown that Culture Minister Miri Regev wore to last year’s Cannes Film Festival. That dress featured a gold bodice and a white skirt printed with a 360-degree image of the Jerusalem skyline along its hem.
