Kamala Harris news: Vice President channels Meghan Markle in suit from New York brand

The first female Vice President wore a burgundy look for the event. She has previously worn a very similar jacket from the same brand with the same pair of trousers.

At this event she wore a customised version of the Indiana Blaxer from the brand, in “Juniper Berry”.

Kamala is far from the first high profile American woman to turn to Altuzarra for her tailoring.

Another big fan of the brand is the Duchess of Sussex and former-actress Meghan Markle.

Meghan caused excitment when, early into her duties as Prince Harry’s other half, she adopted trousers and pant suits into her wardrobe.

While her contemporary the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has been known to wear trousers, Meghan’s smart pantsuits brought a new, formal and businesslike element to royal women’s wardrobes.

And with her suits the VP often turns to the same shoe brand.

In fact, Kamala Harris has Manolo Blahnik’s worth at least £8,000.

Manolo Blahnik is a famous brand of shoes. For many, they are synonymous with popular TV programme Sex and the City as they were a favourite of lead character Carrie Bradshaw.

The shoes have also been name-checked or featured in Fifty Shades of Grey and Gossip Girl as well as a surprising number of rap songs, including by Jay Z.
