She has also found a way to lend her voice to the rights of the LGBTQ+ community especially as she is also gay.

Nats Getty – Bio
Ariadne Getty and Justin Williams welcomed their daughter Natalia Williams to the world on the 30th of November, 1992. She is the first child of her parents and is the elder sister to August Williams who was born two years after her. August also happens to work in the fashion industry as well but as a designer. Natalia’s mother is the grand-daughter of the oil magnate Jean Paul Getty.
Some other members of her family, especially from her mother’s side of the family have also held important stations in society. One of such people is the actress, Ann Rork Light who was her mother’s grandmother, making Light her great-grandmother. Mark Getty who is the progenitor of the popular company ‘Getty Images’ is also a family member; he is her mother’s brother.
The early years of her childhood were spent in Santa Monica in California, while there she attended Willows Community School. The family’s relocation to England when she was just eight led to her continuing her education at boarding school. For her tertiary education she moved back to the United States and attended Mount Saint Mary University, the course she studied in this private Catholic University is not known.
Nats Getty has found a way to lend her talents to different streams of income but asides from the fame she gets for being a member of the Getty family; she is a widely recognized model. She is signed to Next Management modelling agency but most of her work as a model has been for her brother’s fashion line called August Getty Atelier.
The family business, which is the source of the wealth they enjoy, is called Getty Oil and as a play on the name, Nats Getty started her own fashion line called Strike Oil. The biggest part of her fashion line is the leather jackets she designs and sells.
But making money is not all she does with her time. As an openly gay person who is deeply involved in the happenings of the gay community and is a member of the non-governmental organization, Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), she finds ways to help and assist the community. Her work with the organization has helped to provide funding for infrastructural development that the organization might be inclined to undertake. After the nightclub shooting of 2017 in Orlando, Getty had a mural made in honour of the victims and this mural is located in front of the scene of the mass shooting.
With the combined income from modelling and designing, Nats Getty is believed to have an estimated net worth of $5 million. The fact that she comes from wealth also helps with her generation and retention of wealth. Her family is considered to be the 54th richest family in all of America and the state of her assets and finances speaks to the wealth she hails from.
Relationship with Partner – Gigi Gorgeous
Nats Getty has been openly gay all her life. In 2016, Getty began dating Giselle Loren Lazzarato, popularly known as Gigi Gorgeous. Gigi is a transgender woman, and that was her initial claim to fame; however, she works as a model right now. It was during Fashion week in Paris that they met and thus began their relationship. However, nine months after they started dating the couple split up, but it would seem like they have a very strong connection as they got back together shortly after.
In 2018, the two had flown out with Nats telling Gigi they were going for a photo shoot only to surprise her with a proposal at a private ceremony in a castle in France, Gigi said yes. The two are yet to tie the knot but it is believed that it will happen soon.
