15-year-old Willow Smith, daughter of Jada and Will Smith, has been named the new brand ambassador for Chanel.
Chanel released an announcement stating, “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.”
Young Willow also made an announcement of her own via Instagram, with a caption that read, “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.”
The Smith household is now full of fashion icons. Last month, Willow’s brother Jaden Smith turned heads as he became the new face of Louis Vuitton. Jaden stood for gender fluidity by modeling a skirt for Louis Vuitton’s womenswear “Series 4” spring-summer 2016 collection.
Jaden and Willow Smith are definitely continuing to break and bend all fashion rules, and we are here for it. Can’t wait to see what fashion statements they bring to the table next.
