Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, stepped out on the Capitol balcony in an eye-catching look for the inauguration, fitting for the fashionista who is in her senior year at Parsons School of Design.
The 21-year-old Brooklynite — one commentator declared her “first daughter of Bushwick,” referring to the hipster neighborhood — paired a purple Batsheva brand dress with a dramatic Miu Miu tweed coat embellished with yellow crystal beading and a white lace collar.
Meena Harris, the VP’s niece, wore a similarly feminine frock in bright green paired with sparkly heeled boots in silver.
Emhoff’s dress was designed by Upper West Sider Batsheva Hay, who is known for her prairie-style dresses with ruffled accents. Her plaid coat, which accented her waist and exaggerated her shoulders, was from last year’s Miu Miu runway collection.
The Los Angeles native accessorized her edgy outfit with a black headband and a black mask as she stood by her older brother, Cole, 26. He made more traditional sartorial choices with his blue suit, tie and long wool coat.
On Tuesday, during an official visit to the Lincoln Memorial with the families-elect, Ella opted for a Thom Browne skirt suit with a long, chic double-breasted overcoat, a blue oxford and a striped tie.
