Ella Emhoff, thestepdaughter of our new Vice President Kamala Harris, has inked a deal with international modeling agency IMG Models.
“It’s not really about shape, size or gender anymore,” explained IMG Models president Ivan Bart on signing Emhoff. “Ella communicates this moment in time. There’s a cheekiness and a joy she exudes.”
Founded in 1987, IMG is one of the world’s most premiere agencies. Among its impressive A-list roster of talent includes Gisele Bündchen, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne and Chrissy Teigen.
The 21-year-old fashion maven, who rocked a colorful coat deigned by Miu Miu on Inauguration Day, is a fashion student at New York City’s Parsons School of Design.
She claims to draw inspiration from vibrant colors as well as the long-running animated series “The Simpsons,” noted the South China Morning Post.
With 315,000 Instagram followers and growing, Emhoff has shown a keen interest in knitwear.
“I’ve obviously got a bigger platform now, and I’m excited to share a lot of things I really care about, and do some good,” Emhoff explained to The Times.
“There are a lot of people out there that need a lot of help. If I can do anything to help with that, I want to, and I think this opportunity will be really beneficial toward that.”
Emhoff’s parents are attorney and second gentleman Doug Emhoff and film producer Kerstin Emhoff. They divorced in 2008. Six years later Harris married Doug Emhoff.
“Very proud (but nervous) MAMA!” tweeted Ella’s mom after learning of her daughter’s deal. “Ella will stay true to her cheeky self with all of our support.”
It’s not like people aren’t going to be secretly taking pictures and video of her anyway and selling them to the tabloids as long as Kamala is in office. G’on head, Ella!
