Natalia Bryant, the 18-year-old daughter of Kobe Bryant, dares to step into the limelight. She signed her first modeling contract.

Just a few weeks after her 18th birthday, Natalia Bryant opens a new chapter. The daughter of the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant (1978-2020) wants to get started as a model. She laid the foundation for this together with the modeling agency IMG Models, where stars like Ashley Graham (33) and Gigi Hadid (25) are also under contract. Natalia Bryant can now count herself among them.

As the agency announced on Instagram with a black and white picture of the 18-year-olds, this is one of their new faces. The joy on the part of the young model is great. "I've always been interested in fashion, from an early age," said Natalia Bryant, commenting on her debut. "I love the industry and for as long as I can remember I've wanted to model." Although the 18-year-old says she still has "a lot to learn", she sees the model contract as a "great opportunity" to do so.

Farewell to top model Gisele Bündchen?

In the past few weeks, there have been several well-known newcomers to the file of the model agency IMG Models. Among other things – shortly after the inauguration of US President Joe Biden (78) – poetry slammer Amanda Gorman (22) and Ella Emhoff (21), the stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris (56), enjoyed model contracts.

However, the agency should also have to cope with a painful departure. As the US portal "Page Six" recently learned from an insider who was not named, top model Gisele Bündchen (40) is said to be turning her back on the agency after 22 years. From now on, she wants to be represented by her twin sister Patricia (40).
