New Chanel face: Smith, who is the youngest at just 15
WILLOW Smith, 15-year-old daughter of American actor Will Smith, was named on Tuesday as an ambassador for French fashion house Chanel.
She is the luxury brand's youngest "trendsetter", following Hollywood star Johnny Depp's 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose, who was named a Chanel ambassador in July last year.
The actress and singer made her screen debut at seven in the 2007 film, I Am Legend, which starred her father.
Chanel said Willow Smith has been wearing its clothes for public appearances since 2013, and that her first encounter with its designer Karl Lagerfeld was in 2014, when he photographed her for the American magazine V.
She recorded her first album at the age of 10 and supported singer Justin Bieber the following year on a part of his European tour.
Her rapper and actor brother Jaden appeared in a skirt earlier this year in a photoshoot to promote the Louis Vuitton spring-summer collection.
