The teenager has been named as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty and her pictures from the campaign show that the model has a lot of potential and talent.
Kate Moss's daughter Lila Grace celebrated her 16th birthday only a week ago and the upcoming model has already landed her first massive modeling campaign - Marc Jacobs Beauty.
The teenager has been named as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty and her pictures from the campaign show that the model has a lot of potential and talent and is a natural in front of the camera. Marc Jacobs Beauty confirmed the news via Instagram and posted a picture of Lila sporting a purple cat-eye and a glossy nude lip which was created by the makeup artist Diane Kendal.
In the stunning photograph, Lila's green eyes are totally enhanced and highlighted by the purple shadow. The picture was clicked by fashion photographer Davis Sims. Lila is seen posing as she rests her hand on her chin and pushes her upper lip up. Her blonde hair was styled by Guido Palau and her nails had been done by Jin Soon Choi. Kate has previously appeared on a number of Marc Jacobs' catwalk shows and has also been friends with the fashion mogul for a long time.
In a statement about Lila Grace being the new face of his beauty brand, Jacobs shared, "When I met Lila Grace for the first time in 2008, I was on a holiday in Ibiza and went to Formentera for the day to visit with her mom, Kate Moss, and other friends and family. At just six years old, Lila's strong character, demeanor, and great beauty was already very apparent," he wrote.
The next time that Jacobs saw Lila was at Kate's wedding in 2011 to her now former husband Jamie Hince. According to Jacobs, "Lila's character was more dynamic and her beauty even greater." Last July, Kate took Lila to the sets of a shoot and Jacobs shared that it was "surreal" to have both mother and daughter in the studio.
"It brought back memories of the first time I met Kate when she was 18 years old and cast to walk for the Perry Ellis Spring/Summer 1993 grunge collection," he recalled, referring to a line which he had designed and Kate had modeled. "Kate and I became very close after the grunge collection and remain lifelong friends (much of which is well documented!)." Given that Jacobs and Kate have been very close friends for a long time, the designer shared that Lila coming to shoot the campaign in New York "felt a bit like an intersection of my personal and professional life coming full circle."
"It is with great pride and a full heart that I share this first image from our shoot with the incredible Lila Grace in her first ever beauty campaign for Marc Jacobs Beauty," he continued. "Lila’s beauty, composure, patience, and kindness made this project even more special than I could have imagined. With each look we photographed, she got into each character effortlessly and gracefully," he added.
According to the British Vogue, Lila reciprocated all the love and affection for Jacobs and his products and shared, "I love his makeup! Especially the bronzers. Makeup can give you confidence and make you feel better about yourself. A few years ago my mum gave me a Marc Jacobs perfume, Daisy, and I’ve loved it ever since. Shooting the campaign in New York was a really fun experience. I’ve known Marc since I was little and had heard a lot about Guido from my mum."
