“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,” announced Chanel.
Once only known for ‘whipping her hair back and forth’ and appearing alongside her famous dad in I Am Legend, Willow has now joined the ranks of Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, Cara Delevigne and Julianne Moore as high fashion royalty. To top it off this accomplishment is only six months into her IMG contract.
The whacky ‘It Girl’ posted this message to her Instagram account:
“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”
Fame and fortune surrounds the Smith family. Her parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are two of the most powerful A-listers in Hollywood, with Will Smith being ranked as the most bankable star worldwide by Forbes. The family has notoriously been in the spotlight recently for snubbing the 2016 Oscars, accusing them of having a lack of diversity.
Willow’s older brother Jaden Smith has also inherited their dad’s knack for drawing attention to himself. He famously modelled womenswear for Louis Vuitton’s Series 4 spring-summer 2016 collection advertising campaign.
The Smith family are making their mark in every creative industry around the world.
We can only guess what is next for the young, irrepressible Willow.
