Brud launched the avatar on Instagram in 2016. Since then, the freckled, impeccably dressed character has attracted hordes of fans (she has over 2 million followers on Instagram) and has collaborated with brands like Prada, Calvin Klein and Givenchy.

A statement by CAA Global Client Strategy Executive Adam Friedman seems to hint at a future Lil Miquela movie. “We are excited to jump in and help her navigate the world of television and film, and also see a unique opportunity for innovative, forward-thinking brands to align with a culturally relevant, icon-in-the-making,” he said.

Without a doubt the future is the present.
