Loved Natalia Bryant's Met Gala dress? Well, wait until you see her second look.

After walking the red carpet at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in a Conner Ives dress on Sept. 13, the 18-year-old daughter of Vanessa Bryant and the late Kobe Bryant changed into a black ensemble. Natalia gave her 2.7 million Instagram followers a peek at her outfit, and fans could see that the gorgeous garment featured a high neckline with semi-sheer fabric and dramatic detailing around the shoulders and sleeves. She also switched up her hairstyle from a beautiful half-up, half-down 'do to a chic ponytail and accessorized her look with sparkly earrings. 

The young star gave a shout-out to her stylist Law Roach—who's also worked with Zendaya, Addison Rae and Chance the Rapper—as well as to her hairstylist Ro Morgan and makeup artist Jose Corella

Just like with her first ensemble, Natalia received high praise from her family and friends. "Beautiful," Vanessa wrote in the comments section. "GORGEOUS!" Ciara also added three heart emojis.

To celebrate Natalia's Met Gala debut, Vanessa joined her daughter for an after-party held at a club in The Standard Hotel. She wore a gorgeous long-sleeved gown for the occasion.

This marked Natalia's first Met Gala. At the event, guests had the opportunity to peruse the first of The Costume Institute's two-part exhibition "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion." In fact, Natalia's first ensemble was a piece from the exhibit selected by co-chair Anna Wintour.

"I definitely wanted to do something really fun and young, and so I'm just so glad Anna Wintour allowed me to wear this exhibit dress by Connor Ives," she told Entertainment Tonight, later noting, "This just feels like a dream."


It's certainly a busy time for Natalia. In addition to making her Met Gala debut, she's a freshman at the University of Southern California and a model with IMG Models.
