    Kamala Harris's Stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, Just Made Her Paris Fashion Week Debut, And She Looks Absolutely Stunning

    "Truly amazing"

    Kamala Harris's stepdaughter, Ella Emhoff, is something of a fashion icon. Remember her look at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration? I'll never forget it.

    She's also an IMG Model, who made her New York Fashion Week debut earlier this year, walking in Proenza Schouler's virtual Fall/Winter 2021 show.

    Here's the thing — according to The Cut, the show Ella participated in was Balenciaga's first haute couture show since 1967, when brand founder Cristóbal Balenciaga left the fashion industry.

    And because of that, the show took place in "an almost exact replica of Balenciaga's original salon at 10 Avenue George V in Paris, down to the water damage and flaking plaster."

    What an honor for Ella, right? She totally killed it. I can't wait to see more of her!
