The eldest daughter of the late, great Los Angeles Lakers star 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 premiere catwalk since being signed to IMG Models in 2021.
The 20-year-old wore an all-black selection from the designer, comprised of a structured midi-length dress with bold shoulder detailing and silver, metallic flats.
“I am beyond excited about making my runway debut. It’s such an incredible opportunity and I’m so grateful to Donatella [Versace] and am honored that she has invited me to be a part of something so special,” Bryant told Vogue.Embed from Getty Images
The rookie model was put at ease by Versace, herself, whom she met for the first time just a day prior to the show at her fitting. “She was just so welcoming and sweet and made me feel so comfortable, especially with it being my first runway,” Bryant says. “Meeting her definitely helped settle any nerves.”
Natalia continued: “I wanted to start fresh and do my own thing without having to worry about comparing myself to anyone or setting myself to anyone’s standard. Thankfully I’ve only had positive experiences and I’ve been so happy to see how supportive and welcoming everyone has been.”
On Instagram, the “proud” mom shared a snapshot of her from the event, gushing over her daughter’s big reveal.
