Willow Smith stars in the CR Fashion Book for a second time.

Willow Smith is sporting face tattoos for her second appearance in the CR Fashion Book.

Editors of the fashion magazine, created by former Vogue Paris boss Carine Roitfeld, invited Will and Jada Pinkett's Smith 15-year-old daughter to be part of their Issue 9, The Weber Series, featuring shots taken by famed photographer Bruce Weber, and Willow opted for a striking new look in the pictures.

She appears with markings on her face as well as ink on each of her fingers.

Willow's older brother Jaden, 18, has also posed for the publication, starring in the first ever CR Men’s Book in 2015.

Willow bears an uncanny resemblance to her actor dad in the shots, wearing high end fashion pieces including a tight corset over a crisp white shirt, and an oversized blazer worn with another white shirt, black pleated skirt and dark beret.

The styling is markedly different to her first appearance in the fashion bible, last year's (15) issue 6, for which she wore an array of colourful and exotic looking clothes.

The striking new photoshoot comes as Willow serves as a Chanel ambassador. She landed the new role in March (16) and in June (16) she was confirmed as the face of the brand's new eyewear collection.

Attending the Chanel Haute Couture show last month (July16), the teenager opened up about what her role means to her and what she plans to do with the new title.

"It’s not every day that a 15-year-old black girl with dreads gets elected to be the Chanel ambassador” she told Britain's The Telegraph. "I know a lot of girls that look like me feel that they’re not beautiful and feel like they don’t have a place in the media or a place in the world.

"I want them to know that’s not true, and if you’re confident and you love yourself then everything you see, your perception, will start to change and you’ll see things differently. I want to show those girls that might not think they’re beautiful they are."
