Natalia Bryant is making a name for herself in the fashion industry. On Feb. 9, Natalia, the daughter of Vanessa Bryant and the late Kobe Bryant announced that she’d signed her first modeling contract with IMG Models. “I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” Natalia told Women’s Wear Daily. “I have a love for the industry, and ever since I can remember, I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn, but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”
Through the agency, 18-year-old Natalia will join the likes of Ashley Graham, Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and more. Natalia will also join Ella Emhoff and Amanda Gorman as one of IMG’s most recent high-profile signings. “Natalia has such a bright future ahead of her, and we were taken aback by her beauty, talent, and drive from our first encounter,” said a representative for IMG Models. “We’re honored to partner with Natalia in shaping her career in fashion and beauty, and we look forward to connecting her with fresh, exciting opportunities that showcase her multifaceted personality and look.”
