Vice President Kamala Harris‘ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff enjoyed a romantic hand-in-hand stroll with her boyfriend Sam Hine through Manhattan on Monday.
The IMG Model, 22, displayed her unique sense of style by rocking a brown bucket hat and black bomber jacket with eye-catching green-striped pants.
Ella and the 27-year-old Chicago native – who’s a senior associate editor of GQ and GQ Style – were first pictured dining on Hokkaido cuisine at Dr. Clark in Chinatown four months ago.

Ella looked relaxed during the stroll, completing her laid-back ensemble with a grey T-shirt and black loafers with white socks.
Sam also kept things casual in jeans and a black shirt which boasted quirky white butterflies and piping on the arms.
Elsewhere on Wednesday, Ella weighed in on the mullet going mainstream after getting her curly locks coiffed by Vacancy Project gender-neutral salon owner Masami Hosono.
‘I feel like in the past, the mullet was deemed unattractive and kind of odd, and I’m really drawn to that almost ugly-chic look,’ the Bushwick tastemaker told Vogue.

She added: ‘The more you have this style, the more you want to push the limits of how mullet-y you can get it.’
In January it was announced that Ella had signed with IMG Models, joining the ranks of Gigi Hadid, Kate Moss, and Alek Wek, who are also signed by the agency.
And in April, Ella nabbed her first high-profile modeling gig, storming the runway for Proenza Schouler at New York Fashion Week.
Ella said the approach from Ivan Bart, the president of IMG Models, took her back even though she had been dabbling in modeling for a smaller agent.

‘I was pretty surprised when everything with IMG was happening because when I was younger, I never saw that as being part of my timeline,’ she told The New York Times.
‘As someone who, like a lot of young girls out there, had self-confidence issues, it is intimidating and scary to go into this world that is hyper-focused on you and the body.’
She said she was encouraged by the diversity of models working today, and the opportunity to be ‘part of that change.’
‘I am so proud of you!’ On May 15, the Bushwick tastemaker’s famous 56-year-old ‘Momala’ (R) congratulated her on receiving a bachelor of fine arts from The New School’s Parsons School of Design
‘I’ve obviously got a bigger platform now, and I’m excited to share a lot of things I really care about, and do some good,’ Ella said, adding she was ‘excited to do things like wear fun clothes’ and ‘to bring a bit of Bushwick into the high fashion realm’.
It has been a busy few weeks for Ella, and on May 15 her ‘Momala’, 56, congratulated her on receiving a bachelor of fine arts from The New School’s Parsons School of Design.
‘I am so proud of you,’ Kamala gushed on Instagram. ‘Keep dreaming with ambition and there is nothing you cannot achieve!’
