In the May issue of Teen Vogue 15 year old Willow Smith spoke of her excitement in being named a Chanel brand ambassador.
“Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. Like, how am I a Chanel ambassador?
It is so beautiful. I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further. But I am doing it every day just by being myself.”
The brand had these kind words to share as to why they chose Willow to be the face of their latest fall/winter eyewear campaign.
“A multifaceted artist, writer-composer-singer and actress, Willow Smith is the embodiment of her generation’s spirit. Her youth and energy charmed Karl Lagerfeld who has invited her to join the family of CHANEL muses,”
