Vice President Kamala Harris' stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, stole the fashion limelight on Inauguration Day on 20th January 2021. Standing out next to established style icons like Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga was always the one to steal away the event’s thunder. Still, on a day of block colors and monochromatic looks, Kamala’s stepdaughter, Ella, 22, stole the fashion limelight.
Ella sported a plaid Miu Miu coat with embellished shoulders and a large embroidered white collar. Underneath, she wore a Batsheva dress with a black mask and a Loeffler Randall headband. Much of the buzz centered on her Miu Miu coat.
Ella’s look went instantly viral, leaving many excited about what the design student and budding artist specializing in knitwear at Parsons School of Design in New York City might bring to the White House over the next four years.

Ooof. Guys. I am just now processing Ella Emhoff's look. The doily-evoking collar, the bling because you must, the metal glasses that enhance the sassy expressions, the curls — it's all very Jewish grandma-chic in the best way. pic.twitter.com/UabwcWMO0E — Lior Zaltzman (@liorca) January 20, 2021
Walking down the Capitol steps alongside her brother, Cole, Ella instantly became the center of attention.
