A week after the US Presidential Inauguration, Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter joined the modelling and talent agency, which also signed poet laureate Amanda Gorman a few days prior.

Emhoff is a senior studying fine arts and textiles at the Parsons School of Design in New York and attracted massive online attention during the Inauguration wearing Thom Browne and Miu Miu. The two new additions to the IMG roster signal the firm’s nimbleness in signing talent whose social media followings explode seemingly overnight — Emhoff’s own Instagram following grew from 50,000 to 300,000 followers in one week, the NYT reports. IMG has also signed popular fashion TikTok stars like Wisdom Kaye.
