Just 15 years old, still in school and she just became the new face for Chanel. Willow Smith was the big announcement at Chanel’s Fall Winter 2016 show this morning in Paris. Clever move from Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld as the youth is the future and they have that fresh innovative mind to wear existing silhouettes with that newness which keeps on surprising and influencing the fashion established designers. Willow is the brand’s newest brand ambassador. She is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and certified cool-girl which now joins fellow faces and muses Lily-Rose Depp, Kristen Stewart, and Blake Lively in her new role.
Smith said, “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.”
