Power Dressing

Before I tell you who and what this person is, what do you think?

A. It is the cover of Trannie Today
B. The before picture in a plastic surgeon’s sample book
C. A mug shot of a suspect in the police station
D. The new pick for Miss Hathaway in a remake of The Beverly Hillbillies

Well, none of the above is the right answer.
Meet Ella Emhoff. Never heard of her? Don’t recognize this model?

She’s the daughter of Kamala Harris’ husband, therefore the stepdaughter of the Veep. The Daily Mail reports she made “her runway debut at New York Fashion Week after signing with IMG Models — a month after she turned heads at the inauguration.”

Here’s the shot that “turned heads.”

De gustibus non est disputandum as they say, but a challenger to Christy Brinkley, Karlie Kloss or Gigi Hadid she ain’t. Perhaps what we have here is a version of the Emperor’s New Clothes. Only she has some on – thankfully. No one wants to speak the truth because it would deny her cashing in on her stepmom’s powerful position. That would be going against the DC creed, which is paying powerful peoples’ children is an acceptable form of, er, lobbying if you prefer that term to bribing. It’s much practiced. See Hunter Biden. Everyone knows that he/she/xe isn’t pretty, intelligent or knowledgeable; no one wants to say that because it ruins the DC game.

The DM continues its story. “According to Vogue, the fashion show was actually filmed two Sundays ago on Long Island, but everyone involved — including designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez — kept Ella’s involvement a secret until today, when video and imagery from the event was posted online.”

Gee, maybe because it would be a turnoff?

“‘It’s not really about shape, size or gender any more,’ said Ivan Bart, the president of IMG Models. ‘Ella communicates this moment in time. There’s a cheekiness and a joy she exudes.'”

He’s probably right. She is a sign of our mixed up times. I see sullenness instead of joy that she exudes, plus an unwillingness to make herself attractive.

Here’s another picture of her, this time before the inauguration.

I had trouble figuring out which one was the young girl.

Just remember that Melania and Ivanka Trump were deemed not worthy of magazine shoots and covers.

What universe are we living in?
