Vice-President Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter Ella Emhoff has made her modeling debut for Proenza Schouler.
Ella, who was signed by IMG Models a week after the 2021 presidential inauguration, stars in the designer’s new campaign, rocking a tuxedo suit and her now iconic glasses.
In a second shot, shared by Vogue, the 21-year-old poses in a turtleneck and leather jacket, clutching a quilt bag.

Wearing minimal makeup and her short curly hair left loose, the fashion designer appears at home in front of the camera.
"Ella Emhoff, @VP @KamalaHarris’s step daughter, was signed by @imgmodels not long after the Inauguration, and this cameo appearance at @proenzaschouler is her #NYFW coming out," shared Vogue.

Her mom Kersten Emhoff also shared the snap, calling herself a "proud mama."
Ella went viral after her appearance at the Presidential inauguration in a Miu Miu coat with oversized collar and chunky boots.
The fine arts student - who is attending Parsons School of Design in New York - had previously caught the eye of the president of IMG Models, Ivan Bart, who told The New York Times: "It's not really about shape, size, or gender anymore. Ella communicates this moment in time. There's a cheekiness and a joy she exudes."

Ella hadn't planned to forge a future in modelling and told the publication: "I was pretty surprised when everything with IMG was happening because when I was younger, I never saw that as being part of my timeline.
"As someone who, like a lot of young girls out there, had self-confidence issues, it is intimidating and scary to go into this world that is hyper-focused on you and the body."
But Ella hopes to be a "part of that change" and can’t wait to display her "really weird tattoos and kind of funky haircut."

While she’s excited for her new venture, she had to convince her dad, stepmum, and mum, Kerstin Emhoff, that it was a good idea.
"Modelling can be a pretty intense industry," she added. "They were a little protective of me."
However: "When they saw my interest in it and saw what is changing in that world,” she said. “I think they’re pretty excited I can be part of that."
