Willow Smith is Conquering Fashion as the new Face of Chanel!
Move over Jaden, you’re not the only Smith who’s repping a major fashion designer.
On Tuesday morning Chanel released a statement dubbing Willow Smith as a new brand ambassador.
“The young singer, songwriter, actress and trendsetter has been wearing CHANEL for public appearances since 2013 and her first encounter with Karl Lagerfeld was in 2014 when he photographed her for the American magazineV. She was notably present at the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to-Wear show presented this morning at the Grand Palais.”
It looks like Willow was handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld himself as they were close on Tuesday morning at the Chanel show in Paris.
At just 15-years-old Willow is the youngest person to hold the title of Chanel ambassador. She took to Instagram after the announcement to thank Chanel and Lagerfeld for “expanding the perceptions of ‘beauty.'”
Backstage at the show on Tuesday Smith told Teen Vogue, “I feel like there is so much creativity going on that I want to inject some of my ideas and some of my energy into the brand, because I feel like there’s a lot of things that come from youth nowadays that need to be expressed and amplified to the world.”
Last year Willow racked up in the fashion world signing a modeling contract with The Society Management, landing the cover of i-D magazine, and then a Marc Jacobs campaign.
We can’t wait to see her spin on Chanel fashion.
