Meet Miquela Sousa, a 19 years old girl from LA. During the night she’s just an ordinary LA musician, releasing new songs, and trying to get noticed, but during the day she’s using her Instagram powers to show off some of the most stylish clothes from world-famous brands like Chanel, Prada, Vetements, and many others. Nothing too crazy so far, right? Thousands of Instagram influencers are doing these paid promos to earn money, so how is Miquela any different?
Well, for starters, she is… not actually real. I mean, clearly the body and clothes are all 100% real, but the face is just a piece of code, a virtual avatar. A very well made virtual avatar, I should say. First time I saw one of her pics, I thought it was from a game or something, but then the environment and the clothes hit me. Needless to say I was confused when I found out the truth.
