“For several different retailers, Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the best performance ever,” Abigail Klem, the president of the Ivanka Trump brand said in a statement to The Washington Post.

As the first series of America's Next Top Model without Tyra Banks at the helm (the model-turned-business entrepreneur did make an appearance for the finale episode) comes to a close, the 43-year-old has announced her next venture. "America's Got Talent's cray new host right here!," she captioned a series of filtered selfies.

Banks will replace the series's long serving host Nick Cannon who announced last month he would not be returning to the show after clashing with executives after telling a joke on TV that implied NBC is an acronym for a racially loaded statement.

When they leave we have to make sure the people who replace them more accurately reflect the way the world actually looks."
