  • The funeral for Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, was held in New York City on Wednesday.

  • Photos from the event showed her 1992 Vanity Fair cover displayed by the altar.

  • A headline about Hillary Clinton on the original cover was gone from the one displayed Wednesday.

Ivana Trump's funeral displayed a copy of her 1992 Vanity Fair cover that appeared to edit out a headline about Hillary Clinton.

Funeralgoers gathered at St. Vincent Ferrer Roman Catholic Church on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Wednesday to mourn the first wife of former President Donald Trump.

Ivana Trump, who was 73, was found dead at the foot of her townhouse's staircase last week, authorities said. The New York City medical examiner ruled her death an accident.

Photos published by the New York Post and People showed two of her magazine covers on display by the altar at the funeral, including her May 1992 Vanity Fair cover.

The original cover features her sitting on a yellow couch alongside the headline "Ivana Be a Star!"

Clinton's name was also on the cover, with the headline "Will she get to the White House with Bill or without him?" (The issue came out during Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign.)

But the photos from the Post and People appeared to show that the headline about Clinton had been edited out of the version displayed at the memorial.

The photos also showed that the two other headlines on the cover - one about the conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh and the other about Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines - remained on the version displayed at the funeral.

It is not clear why Clinton's name wasn't there. Representatives for Donald Trump, Clinton, and Vanity Fair did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Donald Trump and Clinton used to be friends; the Clintons attended Trump's wedding to his current wife, Melania Trump. But that relationship soured when the two ran against each other in the 2016 presidential election, as Trump shared and encouraged conspiracy theories about Clinton.

The two-hour Mass for Ivana Trump on Wednesday, attended by the former president and the couple's three children - Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. - was a "big, glamorous celebration of her life," the publicist R. Couri Hay, who was at the service, told Insider.

Hay said the church was decorated with her favorite roses, and her coffin was draped in a purple cloth.

All three of Donald and Ivana Trump's children delivered eulogies, Hay said. Donald Trump did not offer any remarks, though he appeared upset in photos after the funeral.
