Natalia Bryant, the oldest daughter of late basketball legend Kobe Bryant on Monday night walked the red carpet at the 2021 Met Gala in a whimsical Conner Ives creation covered in multicolored sequins that will be featured as part of the museum’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” exhibit.
Natalia Bryant who’s a fast-rising model paired her egg-shaped, ’60s-inspired gown with lavender platform heels and a bouffant.
Speaking to pressmen on her Met Gala debut, Natalia said, “I definitely wanted to do something really fun and young. I’m so glad Anna Wintour allowed me to wear this exhibit dress. This just feels like a dream.
“Having my whole family support me is just so nice tonight… it means everything,” she added, adding that she couldn’t wait to see mom Vanessa Bryant’s BFF Ciara, who dressed in a neon green football jersey and wore the Seattle Seahawks quarterback’s Super Bowl ring.
Vanessa Bryant, Natalia’s mom wasted no time in showing her support for the rising star, writing on Instagram “Bringing back preschool drop off feelings as I send my first born off to her first Met Gala. The VOGUE team and Anna Wintour appointed Natalia this incredible dress designed by Conner Ives which will also be featured in the American Lexicon EXHIBIT.”
Natalia Bryant began schooling at the University of Southern California last month. The youngster has also been making significant progress in her modeling career. She and her mom appeared in Bulgari’s Mother’s Day campaign earlier this year, and she was recently featured in Teen Vogue’s September issue.
