Meet LA's Humanoid Fashion Influencer And Her Massive Instagram Fan Base

Meet Miquela Sousa, 19-year-old, Los Angeles-based social media influencer. She's Brazilian/Spanish model who not only sports the latest streetwear fashion but also advocates hard for human rights.

Oh, and did we mention she's not real?

Yep, this socially conscious teenage influencer is a digital avatar. Although clearly, her digital status hasn't stopped her from attending events like ComplexCon, hanging out with celebrities, and releasing her music on Spotify.

I'd like to be described as an artist or a singer or something that denotes my craft rather than focus on the superficial qualities of who I am.

Though Miquela may be a humanoid, her following is %100 human and very engaged. Her debut single Not Mine hit number eight on Spotify Viral in August 2017 and her Instagram following is made up of 564K engaged followers affectionately dubbed "Miquelites".

And in case you were wondering, none of those "Miquelites" were bought. Those are real numbers representing real people who are ready to follow computer-generated influencers.

But it's not just Instagram fans who are ready to support Miquela. She's also being asked by iconic fashion houses to model their brand.

As for the mastermind behind Miquela's fame, they prefer to stay anonymous and Miquela is staying tight-lipped about it too.

"I'd like to be described as an artist or a singer or something that denotes my craft rather than focus on the superficial qualities of who I am," she says.

Watch Miquela's bizarre rise to fame on Instagram.
