Ella first garnered the media's attention back in January 2021 when she went viral at the presidential inauguration. The Parsons School of Design graduate opted for an embellished houndstooth Miu Miu coat which set the internet alight. 

Since then, she has been signed by IMG Models and has walked the runway for Proenza Schouler and Balenciaga. Speaking to The New York Times, Ella said: "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."

She added: "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."

The model is currently in the process of launching her own knitwear line. Over the past few months, she has been teasing fans on her Instagram page with colourful designs and says she hopes to launch the collection imminently.
