Selah Marley has modeled for some of the most famous names in the business. From Kanye West to Michael Kors and many more in between, this rising star is definitely making a name for herself outside of that of her famous parents. It is no wonder why Vanity Fair Magazine has recently named the talented teen “the next Marley to watch,” as she is poised to takeover the fashion world.
Daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley, Selah is definitely the spitting image of her “best friend.” “People have told me my whole life I look just like her,” the 18-year-old told Vanity Fair Magazine. “That’s great news because she still looks good. Not a wrinkle in sight!”
Although the young Marley has grown up in the entertainment spotlight, surrounded by fashion elite, Marley told Vanity Fair that that didn’t seem to prepare her for meeting her fashion icons. “There’s only a few people, like Karl [Lagerfeld] and Kanye [West], that will leave me legitimately star-struck. I’m sure [Kanye] and my mom have met, but I’d never met him. The last show, my heart felt like it was about to fall out of my chest, but I just had to tell him, ‘Yo honestly, you’re one of my biggest inspirations!'”
As the floodgates of opportunities have opened, Selah, a dedicated student at NYU has taken a leave of absence from school to follow the call of the catwalk. “I got handed all of these amazing opportunities, especially travel opportunities. College takes serious dedication-you can’t just half-ass it. Honestly, I don’t think I was ready for that.”
With such wisdom to “know when,” it is no doubt that Selah is headed straight for the top!
