Selah (pronounced: “sell-uh”) Marley is more than the daughter of her famous mother and grandfather. Though, it goes without saying that if you are the daughter of a Grammy Award-winning musician and the granddaughter of an iconic reggae superstar, the spotlight is destined to find you. Though the budding 19-year-old singer and model is the spawn of Fugees frontwoman Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley (Bob Marley’s son), she’s quickly carving out her own lane, independent of her iconic family lineage.
Need receipts? For starters, the teen’s fashion résumé includes Chanel, Rag & Bone and Calvin Klein, and she’s worked with the biggest superstars in music, including Kanye West and Beyoncé. She’s even got one magazine cover under her stylish belt. When it comes to serving fashun, there are very few girls doing it better than Selah Marley. Take note: Here are nine of her most fashion-forward moments.
1. In Ivy Park
On modeling for the brand, Selah said she loves that Ivy Park draws attention to the fact that “women are capable of anything and we can dominate anywhere we go.”
2. In Chanel
