It took less than six months after signing with IMG for Willow Smith to ascend the fashion ranks. In Paris today, the outspoken “It” girl revealed that she has officially landed at the creme de la creme of the industry’s top tier: Chanel.
The 15-year-old, who sat in the front row at the French fashion house’s fall 2016 ready-to-wear presentation with mom Jada Pinkett Smith, announced shortly after the show that she has been chosen by Chanel’s team as its newest ambassador, joining the cool-girl gang made up of Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, Cara Delevingne and Julianne Moore.
“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,” she captioned an Instagram of herself and the white-haired Kaiser. “I am honored.”
Whether her ambassador status will translate into a campaign, as it did for Depp and Stewart, is yet to be seen. For now, it appears her duty is simply to occupy her priceless front row seat while wearing the brand head to toe. Not bad, as far as job requirements are concerned.
