Willow Smith is Marc Jacobs’ Latest Model
Meet Marc Jacobs' new model: Willow Smith.
The designer revealed his first unexpected (and captivating) model, Cher, in an Instagram post a week ago. Now he's shared the latest addition to his squad, singer-actress Willow Smith. Apparently, when she's not busy making artsy music videos about her chakras, she finds the time to strike a haute couture pose for one of the world's most famous fashion designers.
Willow rocks a shorter version of the black pleated skirt Cher wore in Jacobs' previous teaser, and the same no-nonsense black leather gloves. She also wears a painstakingly detailed metallic coat cinched with a straight-as-a-riding-crop black belt. The goth glam look is finished off with black tights and a chunky lace-up heel. The often-overused word "fierce" definitely applies here.
As Marc explains in his caption, this is far from the first time he's selected musicians and other celebs as subjects. "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."
He continues, "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."
The campaign is shot by British fashion photographer David Sims. At this rate, we should see another neo-Victorian teaser from his collection in roughly seven days.
