His family was by his side for the entire ceremony and day's festivities (including a very long parade), so it's no surprise that they accompanied him to the official inaugural balls—and gussied up accordingly.

Ivanka chose a sparkly champagne-colored ballgown by Carolina Herrera as her end-of-night look:
