Kamala Harris’ model stepdaughter Ella Emhoff stuck with her red theme Monday after heading to The Standard hotel for the Met Gala afterparty
The 22-year-old switched her dramatic scarlet carpet Stella McCartney outfit for a more subdued red tiered dress as she headed to the hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District with journalist boyfriend Sam Hine.
Ella was spotted walking into her second exclusive party of the night wearing a long bright red dress tiered with levels of ruffles.
The modest sleeved dress tied at her collarbone covering much more skin than her earlier look.

The dress was paired with her red clutch from her Met Gala ensemble, a pair of platform boots mixed with splashes of red, maroon, and purple, and her usual round wire-rimmed glasses. Ella’s subdued afterparty attire was more aligned with her everyday style than the show-stopping red sheer and sequined design she wore to the Met.
Ella entered the Standard hotel hand-in-hand with boyfriend Samuel Hine, who did not attend the Gala itself. Samuel wore a black suit and bowtie with a white button down shirt accentuated with a ruffled collar which paired well with Ella’s ruffled dress.
The outfit was a relatively conservative choice for Hine, the GQ assistant style editor, who is often spotted wearing more fashion forward looks.
The afterparty on the 18th floor of the Standard hotel has become the most sought-after ticket to close out the star-studded night with its floor-to-ceiling windows that provide scenic views of the New York City skyline.
In 2014, The Standard afterparty famously saw Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles attack Jay-Z in an elevator amid claims of infidelity.
Ella, who is signed to Gigi Hadid’s modeling agency IMG, proved herself more than capable of holding her own alongside some of the industry’s biggest stars when she stepped out at the star-studded events.
The rising fashion star, who is known for favoring more funky fashion looks, eschewed a more traditional gown, instead opting for a skin-tight red shirt with a sheer pattern across her abdomen and arms, and a glittery panel over her stomach and cleavage.
She paired the figure-hugging shirt with some baggy shiny red pants which were tied up at the waist and tight around the ankles, finishing her ensemble off with some comfortable-looking red sneakers.
The look was from vegan fashion designer Stella McCartney, and tied in with the event’s environmentally conscious theme, which saw guests served a plant-based menu.

The model and knitwear designer – who is the daughter of Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff and his first wife Kerstin – typically opts for a barely-there natural makeup look, however she underwent an incredibly glamorous makeover for the Met Gala.
Choosing to go without her signature wire-rimmed glasses, she styled her curly hair in a sleek straight ‘do that flicked up slightly above her shoulders.
Her tresses were pulled back behind her ears, allowing Ella to show off her sparkly makeup look – which featured glittering gems around her eyes, a bold brow, and a slick of mascara.
She also had highlighter on her cheekbones to emphasize her angular features and wore some pale pink lip gloss to complete the look.
Upon her entrance to the event, she added a matching red face mask to her outfit in keeping with the strict COVID regulations that were put in place ahead of the Met Gala – where all guests were required to show proof of full vaccination status and get tested ahead of their arrival.
Attendees also have to wear masks indoors whenever they are not eating and drinking.
Ella clearly felt right at home at the star-studded event, where she happily posed and waved for the cameras as she made her way up the Met’s iconic steps.

Ella’s appearance at the Met Gala comes at the end of a busy New York Fashion Week for the rising star, who attended several events alongside her magazine editor beau Samuel – including the Thom Browne show on Sunday.
There, the model stepped out in a more typical look, donning a striped blazerm matching long skirt, and a sharp suit and tie – matching her boyfriend, who wore a grey jacket and kilt with his own shirt and tie.
The couple held hands as they made their way out of the fashion show, with Ella sporting a funky stuffed animal-style handbag across her body as they left the event.
Ella has long had a relationship with the designer, having worn his design at a COVID memorial shortly before President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, where she quickly cemented her status as a style star thanks to her quirky look.
The model attended the inauguration as the step-daughter of Vice President Kamala Harris, who she calls, ‘Momala’, and she signed with major modeling agency IMG just weeks later, having generated a huge social media buzz with her appearance.
Three weeks later, she made her runway debut at New York Fashion Week, walking for designer Proenza Schouler – a brand for which she also modeled on Wednesday,

In July, she made her couture debut at the Balenciaga show in Paris in front of the likes of Kanye West.
Emhoff is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York City, where she lives.
Little is known about her beau Hine, 27, who is a senior associate editor at GQ magazine. He’s written a profile on John Mayer, which he called his favorite piece in an interview with Grailed.
He told the outlet that he grew in Chicago in a ‘prototypical sheltered suburban childhood experience’ before moving to New York.
‘I was in college during what I guess was the height of the #menswear era, and I read all the blogs, and was basically like, I could do that.
‘So I convinced a super fly English professor – shoutout Gage McWeeny – to let me do an independent study on fashion and I wrote some silly essays on, like, Oscar Wilde and fit pics. It was kind of insane that my conclusion from that was “I should get paid to do this stuff,” but here we are.’
