My Date With the President’s Daughter? How ’bout a date with the vice president’s stepdaughter?
Ella Emhoff‘s buzzy introduction to the fashion world continued on Monday night, when she attended her very first Met Gala. The 22-year-old stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris walked the red carpet in a red outfit by Stella McCartney for Adidas, featuring a diamond mesh top, shiny trousers and embellished sneakers.
“I’m someone who’s really passionate about comfort,” she told The New York Times. “It’s definitely something I would wear in my own day-to-day life… It makes me feel more comfortable in my own skin, in this environment that I’m not really used to.”
It was a fitting debut for someone with familial ties to the White House, as this year’s Met Gala theme celebrated the evolution of fashion in the United States. Ella embodied “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” in her bright red futuristic ensemble, with some eye gems to give an extra sparkle.
