Willow Smith is the new face of Chanel!
On March 8, Smith sat front row for Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2016/2017 runway show at Paris Fashion Week. She sported twin buns high on the top of her head and electric blue winged eyeliner. After the show ended, Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld made the announcement that Smith would be the fashion brand’s newest beauty ambassador.
It’s no surprise that Chanel picked Smith to take on this influential role. The young musician and model has a unique edgy style that is all her own. With Smith’s new access to the fashion house’s wardrobe and collection of beauty products, we have a feeling her style is about to get even better!
“I feel like there’s a lot of things that come from youth nowadays that need to be expressed and amplified to the world,” Smith told Teen Vogue.
Smith has come a long way since her big screen debut at seven in the 2007 film I Am Legend. At only 15 years old she is the brands youngest ambassador. Lily-Rose Depp is the next youngest at 16 years old, according to the Daily Mail UK. Other ambassadors for the luxury brand include Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively.
It’s no question that Smith loves Chanel. “You can just tell all the clothes are just crafted with so much care, and you can tell that there’s so much soul put into how they are designed,” she said to WWD after the runway show.
