Ella Emhoff Stole the Show on Inauguration Day

Vice President Kamala Harris' Jewish stepdaughter is our new national style icon.

A few days after this article ran, we learned Ella Emhoff does not identify as Jewish. We’re sorry for this error, and you can read more here.

Ella Emhoff is Vice President Kamala Harris’s stepdaughter and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff’s daughter. She and her brother Cole refer to Kamala as “Momala.” And she simply stole the show at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20, 2021 (along with Bernie Sanders’s mittens, of course).

Ella, 22, is an art student in New York who lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn and likes to make cool knit designs. Being in a room with the extended Harris-Emhoff clan, Ella has said, “It’s like you get the most confident, strong personality people, a lot of them being women, and it’s like you’re layering all of them on top of each other and it becomes everyone trying to talk over each other. So it’s a lot of really enthusiastic yelling.” (Adopt us, please!)

On Inauguration day, Ella stood proudly with her family while wearing an embellished Miu Miu coat with her curls looking pristine and suddenly, the internet joined us in our newfound Ella Emhoff obsession. Here’s what everybody’s saying about our new favorite Jewish style icon/human being:
