Willow Smith Thanks Chanel for 'Expanding The Perception Of Beauty'



Fifteen-year-old musician, model, and sometimes-philosopher Willow Smith has taken on another title: Chanel brand ambassador. The fashion house announced the news on Tuesday, following her attendance at the Fall 2016 runway show. Willow celebrated the new job with an Instagram shout out. "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.

Willow first met Lagerfeld when he photographed her on the set of a V Magazine shoot in 2014. She follows in the footsteps of Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Julianne Moore, and fellow teen stars Lily Rose Depp and Elle Fanning. Willow also posted a close up shot of her hair in locs with the hashtag #expandparadigms–perhaps a subtle comment on the much-needed movement toward more inclusivity in fashion and beauty, especially from a major brand like Chanel.

Like previous brand ambassadors, Willow will likely sit front row at runway shows, star in campaigns, and, of course, wear a whole lot of Chanel. She already gave us a taste of that in her mesh catsuit:

We can't wait to see what else she and Chanel have in store.
