Willow Smith just landed her biggest fashion coup yet, grabbing a spot in Marc Jacobs’ fall 2015 campaign (alongside Cher no less). It might mark the first time Jacobs’ customers have been introduced to Will Smith’s 14-year-old daughter, but the rest of us already know her as a style rebel-icon for the social media generation. If you’ve been paying attention since her “Whip My Hair” days, you’re aware there’s no shortage of fascinating fashion soundbites.
March 2015: In a recent interview given to Billboard, Smith called her style “high-fashion nomad. I could literally climb a mountain and survive a couple nights in nature. That’s a requirement for my clothes because one day I was on the freeway and I saw a mountain, so I literally just pulled over and climbed it.”
November 2014: “I like to go to places with my high-fashion things where there are a lot of cameras, so I can just go there and be like, ‘Yep, yep, I’m looking so sick,'” she told The New York Times this fall. “But in my regular life, I put on clothes that I can climb trees in.”
November 2014: “Flexibility with yourself and your looks shows self confidence. You’re willing to paint on your canvas with whatever comes from within you,” she told Wonderland.
August 2011: “I wear anything I feel like,” she told Teen Vogue back when she was a youthful 10 years old. “If I want to put on a pair of Converse with a pencil stuck through them, I will.” She also revealed fashion is a constant part of the family conversation. “It’s pretty much a regular family. At dinner we talk about ‘What did you do today? What did you wear today?'”
March 2011: When she cohosted an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Smith caught flak for being a little bit rude to the talk show legend in the eyes of some viewers. When asked about her closet, she answered back, “Giiiiiiirl. No, it’s like from here to there.”
Jacobs introduced Smith’s campaign imagery via Instagram, writing about “those individuals whose creativity, unique vision, and voice [that] inspire all of us.” He also revealed that the fall ’15 lineup wouldn’t stop with Cher and Smith, with more to come in the next few weeks.
