The young poet grabbed the attention of more than just the modeling industry.

Following her outbreak performance, Gorman made appearances on Good Morning America, CNN and The Ellen Show, received praise from Oprah Winfrey and Lin Manuel-Miranda and took photos with the Obamas and Clintons after the inauguration. 

As for her influence on the rest of the world, Vogue reported that the red headband she wore at the inauguration is already sold out, and online searches for yellow coats surged over 1,300% in just one night. 

Women's Wear Daily also called Gorman "a new kind of style icon," and we think the world can agree that we'll be seeing a lot more of the stylish and talented young lady.
