They already knew she looked good in a coat. So the designers at Proenza Schouler decided to dress Ella Emhoff — art student, knitwear designer, fledgling model and stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris — in a couple of coats (plus a pantsuit) for her modeling debut in their new collection, unveiled Thursday for New York Fashion Week.
Designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough said the fashion world took quick notice when 21-year-old Emhoff appeared at the inauguration in January, dressed in a quirky Miu Miu coat with bejeweled shoulders along with a starchy white collar. Social media took notice, too.
Soon after, the designers were planning their February show — actually a digital short, for pandemic reasons — and the casting director mentioned Emhoff. “And we said, ‘We were just talking about Ella.’ Seemed like everyone was kind of talking about her,” McCollough said in an interview.
As it turns out, Emhoff, a senior and art major at Parsons School of Design (where Hernandez and McCollough met and began their partnership), had just signed with IMG Models, joining an even bigger breakout star of the inauguration: poet Amanda Gorman.
The outdoor shoot took place recently on a blustery weekend at the Parrish Museum in Water Mill, New York. It was the first time Emhoff had walked a runway. Watch her in the video here:
“I have to say I was a little nervous,” Emhoff, daughter of Harris’s husband Doug Emhoff, said later in a streamed talk with the designers, also released Thursday. “I definitely lost a little sleep the night before. I’m walking for the first time, I’m in this professional environment for the first time… the anticipation was really high.” She spoke of her love for knitting and textiles, and her dream of her own knitwear brand.
“She kind of reminded us of of our friends and ourselves in a lot of ways back when we were at Parsons,” McCollough said. He and Hernandez launched their own brand from their senior thesis collection.
For Emhoff, the designers chose a long gray wool coat with fluffy embellishments on the shoulders, then a midnight navy leather trench-type coat, and finally a black pantsuit. Also walking in the virtual runway show is Meadow Walker, daughter of the late actor Paul Walker.
Veteran Filmmaker Rahul Rawail Gets Vaccinated Against Covid-19 in Mumbai
Veteran Filmmaker Rahul Rawail was seen at the jumbo Covid facility in BKC, Mumbai, where the 69 year old received his first dose of vaccine against Covid- 19. While many of his peers from Bollywood are still contemplating whether they should take the vaccine shot or not, Rawail known for films like Arjun and Betaab walked straight into the vaccination center in BKC on 1st March to get vaccinated.
When we caught up with the veteran, this is what he had to say about his experience “This morning I got a call from David Dhawan saying ‘I heard you are taking the vaccine today, are you taking it today?’ I said yes. David said he will take it after two weeks, I told him what’s the point…..I didn’t even feel the pinch when I was administered the vaccine. I would prefer Covisheild over Covaxin. My doctor told me that I can go straight to the airport after the vaccine.”
Rawail who also plays an important part as a head of jury at for one of the categories at the prestigious International Indian Film Festival of India or IFFI also revealed how he had to cut his travel plans due to Covid restrictions and fear of catching the bug at his age, he said “ In this one year I traveled only for one day to goa for IFFI as there was pressure on me to come but my family didn’t want me to travel in this situation. I still went for the festival with mask, shield and gloves. Luckily nothing happened but now with this dose that fear has gone. I would ask my sons close friends parents who are elderly like me whom I will ask to come and take the vaccine. I will ask David Dhawan, my friend, to come and take a jab immediately . I will call up all the people whom I can and ask them to take this vaccine”
Now we hope Rawail inspires more seniors from-town to come and take the jab in days to come.
