The creative polymath has joined the agency which has Dazed favourites Molly Bair, Kendall Jenner and Andreja Pejić signed to its books
Actress-slash-singer-slash-dancer Willow Smith has already proved her modelling credentials this year by featuring in Marc Jacobs’ star-studded AW15 campaign lensed by Steven Meisel. Now the young star’s career seems set; she’s been signed to a major modelling agency, The Society NYC, which announced their new face via Twitter yesterday afternoon.
It’s the same agency that has former Dazed cover stars Molly Bair, Kendall Jenner and Natalie Westling, along with other favourites Andreja Pejić and SS16 breakout star Ruth Bell already on its books. However it’s not just posing for the camera that the 14-year-old is making a name for herself for. Friends with The Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg and publishing wunderkind Tavi Gevinson, Willow is part of a generation of whip-smart politicised young women redefining teen femininity.
Whether it’s challenging the censorship of women’s bodies with a torso-printed t-shirt on Instagram, showing support for Amandla as speaks out against cultural appropriation or advocating for black women worldwide, the “Whip My Hair” singer is never afraid to make her views heard. Now that she’s signed to a modelling agency, we're looking forward to seeing Willow make her mark on the fashion industry.
