Willow Smith joins Cher as the newest face of Marc Jacobs

2015-06-05 10:34

Cape Town – Willow Smith has landed her first deal with fashion label Marc Jacobs.

The 14-year-old’s campaign image was debuted on Marc Jacob’s Instagram page on Thursday, joining I Believe singer Cher – whose image debuted just last week.

Both images sport a burgundy background with Willow and Cher dressed in Marc Jacobs ensembles.

Along with Willow’s doll like pose, Jacobs excitedly reminisced about those who "inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway", he then introduced "the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith".

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…
