Willow Smith Named New Face Of Marc Jacobs
Willow Smith is only 14, but she already has
Hollywood privilege a budding music career and has posed for fashion shoots. Now she can add the distinction as “face of a major fashion house” to her list of accomplishments.
Marc Jacobs announced that Willow was chosen to join Cher as the face of his Fall/Winter 2015 collection on his Instagram account earlier today, citing Willow as one of his inspirations in the attached message:
Ever since our first Juergen Teller ad in 1998 which featured Kim Gordon on stage wearing my dress, I have always preferred collaborating with the people who inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway.
Over the years we have photographed an incredibly diverse and exceptional group of talented friends and individuals who I greatly admire: Victoria Beckham, Jamie Bochert, Jarvis Cocker, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, William Eggleston, Jessica Lange, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stephen Malkmus, Samantha Morton, Kate Moss, Charlotte Rampling, Winona Ryder, Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Sherman, Michael Stipe, and Rufus Wainwright, just to name a few. Beauty, style and talent know no age. It is those individuals whose creativity, unique vision, and voice inspire all of us here to create and express ourselves through our medium: fashion.
Photographed by David Sims, this season’s ads feature friends, each of whom evoke a sense of intrigue and inspiration and collectively provoke a true consideration for individuality.
Here today I would like to share (not CHER) with you first, the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith @gweelos
Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more…
Must be nice being a Smith kid…
