When you were 15, what was your resume like? Were you bagging groceries –or did you even have responsibilities? Imagine being Willow Smith, at the tender age of 15, Karl Lagerfeld named her the newest brand ambassador for the French couture line, Chanel.
In a statement Tuesday, Chanel stated “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 Magazine V. She was notably present at the Chanel Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to-Wear show presented this morning at the Grand Palais.
Willow told Teen Vogue why working with Karl and Chanel is exciting. “Sitting in the chairs and just watching the clothes walk by is so amazing because you get to see the soul that’s inside of them. 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.”
