Move over Jaden, there’s a new model in the family
Daughter Willow, who was catapulted to fame in her own right in 2010 with the hit song “Whip My Hair,” has been named as the new ambassadress for Chanel by designer Karl Lagerfeld.
After recently having signed with IMG, the 15-year-old sat front row with her “Gotham” actress mom at Chanel’s fall 2016 ready-to-wear fashion show on Tuesday, before making the announcement on Instagram.
“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.#BLACKGIRLMAGIC,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself and Lagerfeld.
Earlier this year, older brother Jaden Smith found himself on the pages of fashion magazines around the world when he signed on to model womenswear for Louis Vuitton — modeling skirts and mesh tops and wearing nail polish.
In addition to modeling, 17-year-old Jaden has also had several high-profile acting roles, most notably in films starring his father. The two appeared together in “The Pursuit of Happyness” and the box office bomb “After Earth.” Jaden also starred in the 2010 remake of “The Karate Kid,” which his father produced.
Willow, meanwhile, surprise-released her first album, “ARDIPITHECUS,” on Dec. 11.
