Ella Emhoff, the stepdaughter of new US Vice President Kamala Harris, has landed herself a modelling contract.
The IMG modelling agency announced on Thursday it had signed the 22-year-old, a week after she caught the
attention of the world at the inauguration.
“Ella communicates this moment in time,” IMG president Ivan Bart told
The New York Times. “There’s a cheekiness and a joy she exudes.”
The agency also boats the likes of Kate Moss, Gigi Hadid and Gisele Bündchen on its roster.
Emhoff is the daughter of Vice President Harris’s husband Doug Emhoff and his first wife, film producer Kerstin Mackin.
Why is she suddenly in the spotlight?

Emhoff went viral online with her head-turning outfit and playful performance, as her stepmother and President Joe Biden were sworn in.
According to Vogue, Emhoff’s inauguration dress, which was designed by Batsheva Hay, “perfectly married her signature Brooklyn quirk with the solemnity of the occasion”. “Her jewel-encrusted Miu Miu coat made it clear that she wouldn’t be hewing to any outdated notions of what a White House-adjacent young woman should dress like,” the fashion magazine added.
Emhoff was seen on camera waggling her eyebrows as she sat behind former Vice President Mike Pence, a moment which
proved to be a hit with viewers. Her mother later tweeted to explain that Ella was in fact directing the look at her, but that didn’t stop the clip going viral.
So much so that her Instagram followers jumped from 50,000 to more than 300,000 in less than a week.
