Kamala Harris' Stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, And National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman, Have Both Signed With IMG Models
Hot on the heels of signing National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman days prior, IMG Models has now also signed Ella Emhoff, the stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris and daughter of second gentleman, Doug Emhoff.
Both Emhoff and Gorman caught the attention of many during President Biden's Inauguration Day earlier this January. It was the first time that the political scion was introduced and no doubt made her appearance memorable by wearing a custom Batsheva dress and Miu Miu coat. Searches for both items has surged since Emhoff was seen wearing them.
By day, Emhoff is a textile design student at Parsons School of Design The New School and by night, she's an aspiring designer, showcasing her designs on Instagram including bright knits that she sells by commission.
Gorman, the youngest poet to ever perform at an Inauguration also sent many into a frenzy.
Clad in Prada from head-to-toe—from a sunny yellow Coat to a red satin puff headband—the young poet delivered a powerful performance of her self-penned poem, The Hill We Climbed. She also wore Nikos Koulis earrings and an Of Rare Origin ring given by Oprah Winfrey.
Searches for "yellow coats" and "headbands" skyrocketed according to Lyst. Also due to overwhelming demand, her upcoming books will get one million prints, transforming Gorman into a household name overnight. Building on to that, Gorman is set to become the first ever poet to perform during a Super Bowl.
