The Academy Awards may have chosen their winners for the year, but there was another golden star at the celebrations.
The 25th edition of the Vanity Fair Oscars party was made more memorable by Vanessa Bryant‘s eldest daughter Natalia Bryant who stunned in an eye-catching number.
The proud mother who shares the beautiful offspring with late NBA legend Kobe Bryant took to social media to show her off.
Vanessa Bryant Shows Off Daughter Natalia’s Golden Oscars Party Outfit
On Sunday, March 27, the Vanity Fair Oscars Party was held in Beverly Hills following the awards ceremony, and stars showed up in their best pieces.
Vanessa updated her Instagram page with Natalia’s outfit for the night and a sweet caption to boot. The 19-year-old made a fashion statement in a black top with spaghetti straps and a stunning bright gold skirt.
Natalia’s top featured a plunging neckline that traced down to the middle of her chest, paving the way for a large white pendant.
The proud mother gushed about her daughter’s look on the carpet, writing, “That’s my baby!!!” and “Golden Goddess.”
Vanessa also showed off the outfit in a short clip where her offspring shined brightly like a diamond in her golden piece.
The eye-catching and regal skirt began at the middle of Natalia’s stomach region and cascaded to the floor in a small train as she walked the carpet.
The black beauty tied her dark waves up behind her head and adorned her ears with large diamond earrings that dangled a few inches below.
Natalia Bryant Credits Her Mother For Her Fashion Sense
The apple does not fall from the tree as Natalia’s unique fashion sense stems from the inspiration her mum gave her while growing up.
Last September, The Blast disclosed that in a special Q&A session with her agency, IMG Models, which she joined in February 2021, she got candid about getting her fashion sense from her matriarch.
Earlier that week, Vanessa jetted off to Venice, Italy, to watch the star-studded Dolce & Gabbana runway show, proving that she stays abreast with the latest trends.
Natalia said with a laugh, “I probably take the most style tips from my mom.” She also detailed how Vanessa helped her pick her outfits for their short film. The movie was for Bulgari and Vogue and titled “A Mother’s Legacy.”
According to PEOPLE, the project featured Melanie Griffith and Stella Banderas. It focuses on the special daughter-and-mother bond and the important life lessons they pass on to each other.
The model also praised her mother for teaching her positive moral and social qualities that can never fade away. She explained:
“Over the years, she taught me confidence and that beauty comes from the inside first. Beauty fades, so be sure to be positive, confident, and like who I am, my morals, and views. That’s definitely helped shape who I am as an individual.”
Although the co-founder of the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation greatly influenced Natalia’s love for fashion, she finds drawing inspiration from other people her favorite part.
The eldest Bryant offspring praised fashion for its ability to motivate and influence citizens worldwide. She said,
“I love how fashion inspires different people from different cultures and different parts of the country. You can gain inspiration from everywhere and anyone, and I think the most beautiful part about fashion is that you can find inspiration anywhere.”
Kobe Bryant’s Eldest Daughter Talks Being Inspired By Him
It comes as no surprise that Natalia is in the Oscars scene as she also has a dream of winning an award of her own as a filmmaker after accepting one for Kobe.
The Blast revealed that during the IMG models Q&A, the University of Southern California student spoke about how her father inspired her love for filmmaking.
Natalia previously accepted an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film for late Kobe’s movie “Dear Basketball.” She recalled that they’d always go on movie marathons and analyze the films afterward. She continued,
“In 10 years. I want to win an Oscar… I want to make a film where I can incorporate fashion and those fashion aspects, and I think combining my two passions that’s just amazing. I want to be able to do that.”
