Premier fashion label Marc Jacobs announced on Thursday its newest campaign will feature Willow Smith.

The 52-year-old fashion designer announced on his Instagram account Thursday the 14-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will be one of the faces of his Fall/Winter 2015 ads.

Last week iconic singer-and-actress Cher, 59, was unveiled as another model for Marc Jacobs’ fresh campaign and the clothing giant is elated to have such a talented group sporting his clothes in promotional advertisements.

“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,” Marc wrote on his Instagram account in a caption attached to a campaign picture featuring Willow.

“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.

“Photographed by David Sims, this season’s ads feature friends, each of whom evoke a sense of intrigue and inspiration and collectively provoke a true consideration for individuality.

Here today I would like to share (not CHER) with you first, the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith @gweelos

“Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more…”

Willow donned an embellished multi-toned coat, stacked lace-up heels and a full skirt in the photo.
