What People Don't Know About Ella Emhoff

All eyes were on the incoming first and second families when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris took the stage to be sworn in as the 46th president and vice president of the United States, respectively, on Jan. 20th, 2021. While much has been said about Michelle Obama's all-purple ensemble, or Dr. Jill Biden's blue coat and gloves, or Kamala Harris' presidential look (even Ashley Biden got some love for her chic silk suit), it was Ella Emhoff, Harris' stepdaughter, who stole the show.

Emhoff stunned as she descended the steps on the balcony of the capitol building wearing a Miu Miu coat and mostly hidden Batsheva dress underneath, per The Daily Beast. She carried a small black bag casually draped over her long leather-gloved fingers. She was, in short, the essence of cool. She looked at once as though she'd just stepped off the runway and out of the coolest coffee shop in Bushwick. 

Who is this girl, anyway? She seemingly materialized out of nowhere as the anti-Ivanka the nation craves. It turns out there's a lot more to Emhoff than just an impeccable fashion taste and an obscenely large budget for coats.

Ella Emhoff is a talented designer and artist

It's no surprise that Ella Emhoff won the fashion game at the 2021 inauguration. She is, after all, a sartorial connoisseur. When she isn't wowing the American public, Emhoff is a student at Parson's School of Design in New York City. Choosing an incredibly chic ensemble likely felt like second nature to Emhoff, who studies textiles, and will be graduating in 2021, per Hollywood Life.

Besides being a student, Emhoff is a burgeoning designer. Her Instagram page (which you should check out of you want some fashion inspo and/or are desperately missing Man Repeller) is full of brightly-colored creations she's knit or crocheted by herself. Emhoff is busy working on her thesis now, but like every good Bushwick girl, she's got a side hustle — and that is making her own wardrobe. 

To add just one more factor to Emhoff's already off-the-charts coolness, you might be interested to know that Emhoff, who has numerous tattoos (including a very chic cow on her forearm), does her own body art when she gets bored, according to The Daily Beast. If that isn't the most un-Invanka thing you've ever heard, we don't know what is.
