Is Willow Smith about to take on the world? Chanel and brother Jaden seem to think so
Yes, Willow Smith is just 15 and she's already had a hit single, starred in a few films, amassed 1.7 million Instagram followers and become a Chanel ambassador. But that's old news, right? The Smith wunderkind has already briefly previewed her Chanel Eyewear campaign, but today the French label revealed the full campaign on its website. Featuring a behind the scenes video, polaroids and other visually striking and appropriately Chanel-esque images; all it does if offer more proof that Willow Smith is NOT your average 15 year old.
As brother Jaden Smith says in a recent Interview Magazine story with Pharrell William: "We never really felt competitive because Willow's always been better than me at everything. There's been no competition." In the interview, the self-confessed yin-and-yang siblings wax poetical on social media, creativity, and their "ludicrous fashion ideas" from when they were tiny children. As Willow explains, "We would just be so rambunctious with our clothing choices" (what teenager uses the word rambunctious in conversation?).
Anyway, when asked about her Chanel ambassadorship, Willow had this to say: "If we didn't have the kind of exposure to the world that we do now, people wouldn't hear the positive thoughts that we have. It's amazing to be able to work with iconic people and to have my name on something that's so beautiful, but at the same time, the only reason why I do it is so that I can have more of a reach to different kinds of people and spread my message. The only thing that really matters is spreading love and light and acceptance and unity throughout the entire world in any way that you possibly can."
And that, my friends, is precisely how and why Willow Smith is going to take over the world.
