Karl Lagerfeld has named his newest Chanel ambassador -- Willow Smith.

During the Chanel Paris Fall 2016 fashion show at the Grand Palais on Tuesday, the brand announced that Willow Smith will be joining the ranks of Kristen Stewart, Lily Rose Depp, and Blake Lively as one of the faces of the line. Smith attended her first Chanel fashion show on Tuesday donning a futuristic Chanel body suit and bold purple eyeliner.

Lagerfeld met his latest muse in 2014, when he photographed her for V magazine, although the singer/songwriter has been wearing the luxe brand for public appearances since 2013.

It's not surprise that Willow was chosen to be the next face of Chanel, considering her brother, Jaden Smith, has made such a name for himself in the fashion world.

In January, Jaden Smith was named the model for Louis Vuitton's women's wear.

"Thank You So Much For The Opportunity To Impact This World," he wrote on Instagram of a photo from the campaign.
