Lauryn Hill’s Daughter Selah And Her Box Braids Star In New Chanel TV Ad
She may not be the size of the average model at only 5’3,” but that hasn’t stopped Selah Marley from making some major moves in her young modeling career.
The eldest daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley recently starred front and center in ad campaigns for Ivy Park, Calvin Klein and Starter, and walked for Kanye West’s line, Yeezy, for the recent Season 5 show. But now, the 19-year-old is starring in her own spot for Chanel’s perfume, Chance.
With braids in her hair (that’s probably a first for the fashion house’s advertisements) and in the finest of frocks, Selah playfully runs around Venice to the tunes of “Bang” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It’s evident in the 16-second clip that what she lacks in height, the young starlet makes up for in striking beauty:
And when it comes to this fashion thing, Selah told Vogue.com that out of all the iconic models, her biggest style influence is her iconic mother. Oh, and Rihanna of course.
“I think my mom for one is incredibly fashionable,” she said. “She’s the one who exposed me to the fashion world simply because of everything that she has. Our basement is literally like a museum of couture! It’s insane. I can go shopping down there, and I do. I also love Rihanna. I think she’s dope. I love the way she dresses up. I have a million screenshots of her in my phone. If I had to give it to anyone, I’d give it to those two people.”
At the rate her career is already going, Selah is sure to be someone else’s style inspiration in no time.
