First daughter and foreign policy enthusiast Ivanka Trump debuted a blonde lob as she arrived in Bogota, Colombia Monday night to promote the Trump administration’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative or WGDP.

“Thank you Vice President Marta Lucía Ramírez for the warm welcome. Looking forward to a great trip!” she tweeted after touching down in South America.

Trump, who holds the nebulous position of senior advisor to her father, paired the new cut with a recognizably “Ivanka” outfit: white double breasted suit-dress, white heels to match, and silver earrings. But the stick-straight, all-business hair takes it in a Shiv Roy-ish direction.

If you’re not familiar with Shiv Roy, she’s a character from HBO’s Succession, which follows a Murdoch-esque nepotistic media family living in Manhattan. The series zeroes in on tycoon and patriarch Logan Roy, founder of entertainment conglomerate Waystar Royco, and his four children, who are all vying for a slice of his empire. Queen among them is the sleek and sophisticated Shiv Roy (brilliantly portrayed by Sarah Snook), Logan’s only daughter.

Snook has previously said she channeled the 37-year-old Trump while playing Shiv. “That was actually the brief: ‘Think: Ivanka Trump,'” Snook told E! News. “I think that was to be more of a ballpark, like here’s the daughter of a wealthy businessman who seems to be her own person and independent, and what does that entail? It could be any daughter from any dynastic power family, but the daughters in particular who have made something of their own and of themselves, like Shari Redstone.”

Perhaps Trump views the Succession character as an inspiration in return: She chopped off her locks just three weeks after Shiv debuted a lob in Succession‘s season 2 premiere in August. For most of her father’s presidency, Trump has kept her hair relatively long, worn straight and parted right down the middle, or in loose waves.

According to other media outlets, this is the shortest it’s been since the first daughter was photographed with a chin-length bob in 2005 at the Planet Hollywood in New York City.
