Last week, Marc Jacobs announced Cher as the first face of his Fall '15 ad campaign. The internet freaked out, as they're apt to do. Now, it seems as if Jacobs is keeping that traction going, continuing to win over our hearts with the introduction of his newest model, Willow Smith.
Just as he did with Cher, Marc Jacobs took to Instagram and Twitter to share the image. Photographed by David Sims, the photo shows Smith perched on top of a tall, wooden stool, slaying in a black, full-skirted dress. She looks almost doll-like, if dolls were ever this fierce.
In the caption, the designer recalled the first 1998 Juergen Teller ad that featured his dress. He shares that he has since preferred, "collaborating with the people who inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway," before deeming "the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith" as one of those people.
If anyone had any doubts regarding Smith's fashion icon status, we think this safely puts them to bed.

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. 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…
