Watch: Christine Lagarde's 'priceless' reaction to Ivanka Trump (Evening Standard)

Christine Lagarde's "priceless" reaction was caught on camera when Ivanka Trump tried to talk with world leaders at the G20 summit.

In footage posted on Instagram by the French Presidential palace, Donald Trump's daughter can be seen speaking with French President Emmanuel Macron, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Theresa May and IMF chief Ms Lagarde at the event in Osaka.

The camera pans to Mrs May, who adds: "As soon as you start talking about the economic aspect if it, a lot of people start listening who wouldn't otherwise listen."

Ms Trump then speaks up, referencing the "male-dominated" nature of defence as she joins in the conversation.

But Twitter users were quick to suggest that Ms Largarde looked less than impressed when Ms Trump began giving her opinion.

Her reaction was described as "priceless", with several people praising her "side eye".

One wrote: "The shade Lagarde gives Ivanka Trump is everything."

Broadcaster Jeremy Vine was among the people who commented on the video, writing: "Watch Lagarde's face when Ivanka Trump tries to get into the conversation."

Another said: "Look at the way @Lagarde powered her sight towards #IvankaTrump - God knows what was going on in her mind when #MRSTrump began talking."

Another wrote: "Living for the shade thrown at Ivanka Trump by Christine Lagarde #G20."

Another said: "Lagarde's reaction needs to bottled & sold as a fragrance."

White another said: "Largarde's double take says everything in this video."

Describing her "side eye", one wrote: "​@Lagarde wins the world side eye Championships."

Ms Trump, an advisor to her father, spoke during a special session at the G20 summit.

She said that the world economy would get a boost of up to $28 trillion by 2025 if women were on an equal economic footing, before describing improving the status of women as a "smart economic and defence policy."

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, the U.N. secretary-general's special advocate for inclusive finance for development, was also at the event.

Ms Lagarde later posted a picture, posing with Ms Trump and Queen Maxima.

She wrote: "The #G20OsakaSummit had a special event on Women's Empowerment and I was pleased to participate with Queen Maxima, @IvankaTrump and many others."
