Willow Smith follows in her brother’s shoes yet again — first in film and now in fashion. The 15-year-old musician has just been named the new face of Chanel, representing the fashion house in the same way Jaden is doing for Louis Vuitton’s women’s clothing.
Smith was given the job of brand ambassador by Chanel’s creative director and head designer Karl Lagerfeld during Paris Fashion Week. She joins Lily Rose Depp, Keira Knightley and few other extremely cool women, that were hand-picked by Lagerfeld to represent the fashion line.
This is not Smith’s first dive into the fashion world. She was previously featured in the Marc Jacobs fall ad campaign and even covered iD magazine last September. Smith is also signed to Society Management, the same modeling agency that represents Kendall Jenner and Adriana Lima.
Smith announced the good news on her Instagram to her 1 million followers. She posted a photo of herself with Lagerfeld that is accompanied by a thankful message.
“Thank you Karl Lagerfeld and the entire team at Chanel for expanding the perceptions of “beauty” by picking me to be the new Chanel ambassador. I am honored. #BLACKGIRLMAGIC,” Smith writes.
