One of her outfits was recreated by Kamala Harris’s Great-Nieces on Inauguration Day
The two great-nieces of Vice President Kamala Harris, Amara and Leela Ajagu, are now emerging stars of style.
The daughters of Meena Harris, niece of Harris, author and entrepreneur, wore matching faux-fur leopard-print coats, custom-made by iloveplum, a female-founded childrenswear start-up. According to Meena, the precious coats were a sartorial ode to their great-aunt, who had just made history as the first woman vice president of the country, and the greatest Black and South Asian woman ever to hold public office in the United States. In Oakland, California, the vice president’s hometown, the pint-sized outerwear was also stitched and sewn.

The style, which will be appropriately called the Kamala, will soon be available for shopping, according to the company.
Meena posted sneak peeks into the excitement of her family leading up to the opening today, including an adorable snap of her two girls cozying up in matching white puffer coats, salmon-colored skirts, and chic boots from Doc Marten.

“WE IN HERE AMERICA,” Harris wrote.
