The recently signed IMG model and Hollywood’s Smith offspring Willow announced during the Chanel #FrontRowOnly Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear show that she has been chosen by Lagerfeld to be its newest brand ambassador. The 15 year old prodigy will be joining the fresh face likes of Lily-Rose Depp and Cara Delevingne. Being the face of Chanel comes with an agenda of sitting front row at shows and carrying an endless amount of Chanel bags which seems like a great job to pick-up in your Sophomore year.
There has yet to have been news surfacing on whether Chanel will be featuring Smith in an upcoming campaign as per their usual routine. However, this is the first time that Chanel has had a brown girl take the lead and represent them to this level. She placed emphasis on the brand “for expanding the perceptions of ‘beauty’ by picking me to be the new Chanel ambassador” Willow Smith took to social media with a caption of gratitude below her Instagram photo with Lagerfeld whom she met back in 2014 at her V magazine shoot.
At the event, Willow wore a white and black mesh bodysuit look that she described eccentrically as “Chanel ninja” paired with an electric blue cat eye which comes just in time for Spring. Willow Smith is no newbie to starting headlines from her music to her recent Stance collection. One thing that can be said is Willow is a prime example of what the youth needs to see in order to expose the possibility of opportunities,even that you can make it at Chanel!
