Ella Ehmhoff received her first magazine cover just a day after her New York Fashion Week debut
Ella Ehmhoff debuted as a cover girl.
Emhoff, the stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris, was featured on the cover of Dust’s spring 2021 issue. The triumph came after Emhoff signed with IMG Models in January and just a day after her catwalk debut at New York Fashion Week.
In a photo posted on Friday, the 21-year-old paired a patchwork sweater she created with a Gucci cotton shirt and a sleeveless turtleneck from The Row. Her prominent curls were slicked back and her glasses were missing. Emhoff, who has become a White House style icon, is a New Yorker and currently specializes in knitwear at the Parsons School of Design.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Emhoff modeled several designers, including Prada and Balenciaga, as part of a photo shoot and interviewed artist Marina Abramovich. She was photographed in a Brooklyn studio by Collier Schorr and framed by Brian Molloy.
Emhoff said in an interview that her inaugural look, praised by fashion lovers, was chosen spontaneously and reflected her personal style well. Personally, I like the cross between old and new, she told Dast. I love doily collars, I certainly love knits, I love plaids, I love classic embroidery, and I wanted to be true to myself and keep that.
Emhoff was first named a style icon after she stunned her during the 2021 inauguration. The Biden-Harris inauguration was a very stylized event, but Twitter all immediately fainted when Ehmhoff strutted onto the steps of the Capitol. She wore a Miu Miu’s Shetland Pied De Poule coat with embellished shoulders, a tied waistline and a large stand-up collar. Ehmhoff wore a coat over a burgundy Batsheva dress.
She later signed with IMG Models, which represents celebrities such as Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Justin Bieber. Ehmhoff is the daughter of Doug Ehmhoff, the first ever second gentleman and husband of Harris. The couple met on a blind date in 2013 and got married in 2014.
Harris revealed in an interview with Elle that neither Emhoff nor her brother Cole Emhoff liked the term stepmother, so they call her momala instead.
Our time for the whole family is Sunday dinner, she said. We come together, all around the table, and over time we began to fulfill our roles. Cole sets the table and chooses the music, Ella makes delicious desserts, Doug is my sous chef and I cook. On Thursday, Proenza Schouler shared a video from the Fall / Winter 2021 fashion show in which Emhoff modeled three bold outfits and spectacular coats.
