Ella Emhoff is making comfort look chic with her Met Gala debut look.

The 22-year-old stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris walked the red carpet in New York wearing a red Stella McCartney diamond mesh body suit with matching trousers and diamond studded platform sneakers. She topped off the futuristic look with sparkling eye gems and Cartier jewelry.

"I'm someone who's really passionate about comfort," she told The New York Times Monday. "Even though this is the Met, everyone is allowed to still feel comfortable in their own skin, their own style. There’s no playbook to how you dress to this.”

After turning heads with her fashion choice for her stepmother's inauguration in January, Emhoff soon after signed with IMG Models.

The biggest names in Hollywood descended upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art's carpeted stairs in New York Monday night, more than a year after the COVID-19 pandemic upended nearly all entertainment events and canceled the 2020 Met Gala. All attendees were required to be fully vaccinated from COVID-19, the museum announced in August.

This year's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," honored the 75th anniversary of the museum’s Costume Institute and will "explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion," the museum said.

Andrew Bolton, the curator behind the Costume Institute, told Vogue in April that "American fashion is undergoing a Renaissance."

Stuns? Don’t think so. The only reason she is even there is because of her relationship with the vice president. Not sure why this media feels the need to gush all over this.

The funny thing is AOC wearing a tax the rich wedding gown at a $30,000.00 a plate tax exempt dinner. By the way she was served a warrant for not paying her taxes in2016. Hypocrisy at its finest.
