Natalia Bryant Signs with IMG Models: ‘I Am Beyond Thrilled’


The eldest daughter of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant is stepping into the modeling world.

18 year-old Natalia has signed with IMG models as the agency announced on Monday. IMG represents more than half of the highest-paid supermodels and celebrities.

Last month, the agency landed two high-profile clients, Ella Emhoff, the 21-year-old stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris and inauguration poet Amanda Gorman.

Natalia expressed in a statement her excitement for this deal.

“I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” she continues “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.”

“I am beyond thrilled and so honored to be a part of the IMG family!” Natalia wrote on her Instagram story, reposting her headshot from IMG.

Natalia isn’t the only one excited about this deal, her mother Vanessa shared Natalia’s news via social media. Vanessa shared IMG’s original announcement on her Instagram Stories and added a GIF that said “I am so proud of you.”

Natalia shared her mom’s post and added, “Thank you momma.”

We are excited to see where Natalia’s modeling journey will take her!
