Kamala Harris' stepdaughter Ella Emhoff stuns in futuristic diamond bodysuit in Met Gala debut
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.

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