Natalia Bryant, eldest daughter of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, recently interviewed with Elle magazine. Getting candid about partnering with UGG, the importance of support systems, and honoring her late father, the 20-year-old taught us a lesson in growth, balance, and perseverance.

Speaking about her late father’s mantra, Natalia told Elle, “Mamba mentality is about constantly trying to be the best version of yourself. It’s putting your best foot forward at all times regardless of all the noise. I want to make sure that mentality stays intact, because it can be so easy to give up on yourself when things get tough. You have to remind yourself that with positivity and resilience you can do anything.”

Unfortunately, we all know the story of Natalia Bryant and the entire Bryant family. Following the untimely death of Kobe Bryant, it was almost as if a worldwide microscope was placed on the family.

The loss of a parent is hard for anyone to handle. But when your parent is a world champion, inspirational figure, and larger-than-life personality all wrapped in one, managing this loss is even more difficult. And this was the place Natalia found herself in just three years ago.

In the face of tragedy, however, the University of Southern California sophomore continues to evolve, transform, and flourish. And with every news update about the young beauty, there is a community of aunties, friends, sisters, and cousins cheering her and her family on.

Natalia discussed some of these life updates in speaking to Elle this week. She is one of UGG’s newest ambassadors. Joining the ranks of supermodel Aweng Chuol and rapper A$AP Nast, Natalia proudly rocks UGG shoes in their A/W campaign ’23 while amplifying campaign themes of power, love, and self-reflection.

“I’ve always loved UGG as a brand,” Natalia shared about the partnership. “I’m obsessed with their shoes, because they’re the perfect mix of comfort and style. You don’t need to sacrifice looking good to feel comfortable, because their designs are so cute.”

From UGG to Versace, Natalia Bryant is an emerging fashion influencer.

The California native also made her runway debut during Milan Fashion Week with Versace this September. The tall upcoming model rocked a simple black dress with a V-neckline and silver flats on the catwalk. Natalia also walked in the BOSS Spring 2024 runway show the same week.

“I love to express myself through fashion. Everyone has their own unique style, and I love to put my own twists on my looks that speak to my personality,” Natalia also said to Elle. “Whether it be with clothes, shoes, or accessories, I think fashion makes a statement about your confidence and sense of individuality.”

We love the resilience, maturity, strength, and style of Kobe and Vanessa’s eldest. Read her entire Elle  interview here.

Help Stop Hate! Spread Love

Widely disseminated misinformation is extremely harmful and serves as a catalyst for hatred, violence and prejudice of every kind. This is counterproductive to the unification and strengthening of a nation. News outlets and journalists have a major responsibility to maintain a high degree of partiality and truthfulness that many Americans feel is not being honored. ADL, the Anti-Semitism Defense League is dedicated to offering impartial education on issues involving anti-Semitism to help Americans make informed decisions. A not-for-profit public service organization powered by Love, ADL provides free resources that educate society on anti-Semitism and ways to work together to combat the ancient hatred while promoting equality and prosperity for all people.

Nonetheless, upon further examination of the circumstances, it appears that Irving might have been criminally deprived of his rights, and could potentially possess a legal claim against his former employer for violating contractual terms.
