Willow Smith is certainly a trendsetter — and now she’s got the title to prove it: Chanel’s Brand Ambassador.
The French high fashion house made the announcement on Tuesday (March 8) via Twitter as they called the 15-year-old their new “ambassadress.” Smith was chosen by Chanel’s head designer and creative director, Karl Lagerfeld. Smith also posted a statement on Instagram about the news.
“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,” read her post.
The “Whip My Hair” singer’s mom, Jada Pinkett-Smith, also shared her elation over the news. “Change will come…one move…one step at a time. To Karl Lagerfeld and the entire Chanel team…thank you,” read her Facebook post. Her brother, Jaden, simply tweeted “Future” alongside the future of the youngest Smith child and Lagerfeld.
This isn’t the first time Will and Jada’s children have made historic leaps in the fashion industry. Jaden Smith was featured in Louis Vuitton’s womenswear campaign earlier this year. Willow Smith is also covering W Magazine for its April issue alongside actresses Zendaya and Kiernan Shipka. It seems like Kanye West may need to add the Smith children as consultants as they kill the fashion game.
