Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s 14 year old daughter Willow Smith is the latest name to be unveiled as featuring in Marc Jacob’s Fall 2015 campaign. The announcement comes a week after pop star Cher was named as fronting the campaign at the age of 69.
At 14, Willow Smith is the latest Marc Jacobs model.
Announcing the news on Instagram designer Jacobs wrote, “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 Jacobs has received criticism for his use of controversial star, Miley Cyrus, as the face of his SS14 collection.
Miley Cyrus has certainly been a point of controversy for the past year. The ex-Disney star has seemed more than a little desperate to prove that her Hannah Montana days are behind her and what a grown up she is these days.

However, Richardson aside, most notably Miley caused a global stir with her provocative performance alongside Blurred Lines singer, Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs 2013. I’ll never be able to look at a foam hand in the same way again.

Designer Marc Jacobs has told of how his long-time photographer Juergen Teller flat out refused to take part in Miley Cyrus' new campaign for the high end fashion chain. A long-time photographer of numerous fashion shoots for Jacobs, Teller apparently wanted absolutely nothing to do with Cyrus or the new campaign and stepped down from the projet before it had begun.
Miley and Marc had been planning the collaboration for some time
"Secret's out, @MileyCyrus star in the MJ SS14 Campaign shot by David Sims!" a tweet from the fashion chain read on Wednesday, 8 January, in the company's fist announcement of the collaboration. Since then Jacobs has spoken with Women's Wear Daily to discuss the new spring look and to also mention Teller's refusal to work alongside the 'Wrecking Ball' singer.
