The designer says that the ‘talented, stylish and charming’ 14-year-old is an inspiration
So just when we thought Jaden Smith was the freshest prince in the family, his crown has been snatched by little sis Willow. She’s just joined Cher as a face of Marc Jacobs’ AW15 campaign, posing in a new image wearing the Diana Vreeland inspired collection.
Smith is no stranger to style – her and her brother have their own clothing line MSFTSrep, and the young singer has often made statements with her outfits – donning an #Aintnowifey tee and weighing in on Free The Nipple after an image of her in a boob-print top caused a stir.
Jacobs had this to say of his new muse:
“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”
