Bermuda: virtual model with scandals and music career

Blonde, perfect figure, beautiful face. Is she real? This is the question many ask, but the blonde model is not real. One of the most famous and scandalous virtual influencers is Bermuda. She became successful through her scandals and former negative nature. The It-girl has a budding music and modelling career. Are digital influencers the replacement for Naomi Campbell or Bella Hadid? Find more articles on virtual influencers here.

Who is Bermuda, and what triggered it?

Bermuda, is a controversial blonde virtual model from LA since 2016, who is known for stirring up the digital world of social media. The virtual model is very politically related and was a Trump supporter, her views have since changed. She also did not believe in climate change. She brought other scandalous actions that helped gain more followers. April 2018, Bermuda hacked Miquela’s Instagram account. In the process, she deleted many photos and posted computer-generated avatars, including her photos. She wrote in the description:

“Hi guys! This is Bermuda. Sooooo… You have been lied to by a fake person. Who literally buys that for a second? Apparently a lot of you. …Sorry, Miquela. I tried texting you, I tried calling, but you keep ignoring me. You brought this on yourself, girl ?. Leave me a comment if you care about the truth, k? ? Follow me @bermudaisbae.”

However, this brought Miquela to 1 million followers on Instagram, and was a milestone that opened a lot of doors in the influencer world, including lucrative brand deals with celebrity designers. Miquela didn’t let herself get down and kept trying to prove to people that she was a real person. And that’s exactly what Bermuda didn’t like. She posted pictures on her own Instagram account and continued to threaten Miquela. The two have since reconciled and are now very good friends.

Was she really hacked?

No, the whole story was a marketing strategy by its creators to help gain more followers and attention.

What does Bermuda do for a living?

Bermuda is now a well-known influencer and has advertised for Chanel, Balenciaga, Tesla, Adam Selman and Starbucks on her Instagram. She has also released her own music, which has garnered 378,735 views on YouTube. On Instagram, Bermuda now has 288,000 followers and gets around 20-40 thousand likes per picture.

Love between virtual influencers?

Bermuda and Blawko22 used to be a couple. However, the relationship ended. They met through Instagram. Blawko discovered her through the argument between her and Miquela. When Bermuda changed companies, where Blawko and Miquela were, they met. Bermuda got a better look and her personality changed. The two met more often and then became a couple. However, the two had different characters. Blawko was always very positive and always wanted the best, whereas Bermuda was very negative. They parted ways because Bermuda wanted to change Blawko and he didn’t like it. However, the three virtual characters are friends despite this. Just like Blawko22 and LilMiquela, Bermuda is the project of Brud, founded by Trevor McFredries and Sara DeCou. The Three Virtual Models are represented by PR firm Huxley and have been backed by Spark Capital, Sequoia Capital, M Ventures, BoxGroup, Chris Williams, Founders Fund and WME.

Zoe Dvir: From bartender to catwalk model

Zoe Dvir is not alone on the avatar stage. The first virtual infleuncer was created in 2016 by Trevor McFredries and Sara Decou. LilMiquela is one of the most famous digital models. A true revolution in the fashion world.  Kendall Jenner, Bella or Gigi Hadid were yesterday’s news. The virtual models are slowly working their way up into the fashion world. Zoe Dvir has only been around for a short time and has already walked a fashion show and been on the cover of a magazine. With her perfect look, Zoe can be multi-faceted and is a real role model for younger people. She campaigns for animal welfare and manages to start a modelling career while studying. And all this despite the fact that she is not real. You can read about her success here:

Who is Zoe?

Zoe Dvir is 22 years old comes from Tel Aviv and is quickly working her way up to success. She has blue eyes and dark brown curls. She is vegan, fights for women’s rights and influences social media with it. She is not only a model but also works as a bartender and studies art and design. In her free time, she loves to paint and walk with her dog. She is a real role model for many young women.

Activist Zoe a real role model

More and more restaurants are opening with vegan dishes and more vegan food is also available in supermarkets. In Zoe’s home country of Israel, 5% of the population eats a vegan diet. That is more than in any other country in the world. How fitting, then, that Zoe also counts herself among the ranks of the veggie front.

It’s clear that veganism can be a perfectly healthy diet, and it also explains the 22-year-old’s great body, but Zoe is about much more than her own health and body. Her goal is to draw her followers’ attention to abuses in the area of animal husbandry, but also sustainability. Zoe stands for reduced, conscious consumption, against fur and has the goal to make the masses aware of grievances and the effects of our impact on the earth.

Experts and stylists: Zoe01 to success

It’s impressive how Zoe Dvir manages to find time for modelling alongside her studies and job as a bartender. That’s one of the advantages of being a 3D animator: Time doesn’t matter. Zoe was created by an Israeli company that has been active in the tech scene for several years. The company, Zoe01, has a team of art, styling and social media experts as well as computer engineers to create Zoe Dvir and Ella Stoller. Zoe is not based on a specific person but was created by experts to create success. The only feature that has been adopted is Zoe’s curls. Her curls come from the fact that the creator’s daughter has curly hair. Zoe is one of a trio of avatars created in Tel Aviv that have recently become popular in the United Arab Emirates. Zoe was taken on directly by the modelling agency MMG and has been signed to a contract there. You can find information about the other virtual avatars here:
