Kobe Bryant’s eldest daughter Natalia, now 20, is officially a runway model — although she’s not exactly skinny, Media Take Out confirmed.
And that leads to many trolls on social media making fun of the beautiful new model. Natalia was trending on Black Twitter last night – with many saying not-so-nice things about Kobe’s daughter.
The eldest daughter of the late Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant and his now widow Vanessa Bryant stepped out on Sept. 2 as part of Versace’s Spring 2024 show during Milan Fashion Week, her first runway since signing with IMG Models earlier this year 2021.
The 20-year-old wore an all-black selection from the designer, consisting of a structured mid-length dress with statement shoulder details and silver metallic flats.
“I’m really looking forward to my catwalk debut. It’s an incredible opportunity and I’m so grateful to Donatella [Versace] and I’m honored that she invited me to be part of something so special,” Bryant told Vogue.
The young model was reassured by Versace herself, who met her for the first time just a day before the show at her fitting. “She was just so friendly and kind and made me feel so comfortable, especially because it was my first runway,” Bryant says. “Meeting her definitely helped calm my nerves.”
Natalia continued: “I wanted to start over and do my own thing without having to worry about comparing myself to anyone or conforming to other people’s standards. Luckily I only had positive experiences and was so happy to see how supportive and friendly everyone was.”
The “proud” mother shared a snap from the event on Instagram and gushed about her daughter’s big reveal.
