Selah Marley's Soul and Style

Selah Marley's Soul and Style

Lauryn Hill's oldest daughter takes over Teen Vogue.

Published March 16, 2011

Those eyebrows! That warm brown skin! That smile! Lauryn Hill part deux? Why not. The April issue of Teen Vogue features none other than 12-year-old Selah Marley, veteran rapper/singer Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley’s eldest daughter.  For anyone who has ever been a fan of her mom’s, dad’s or granddad’s (aka Bob Marley), Selah is a perfect combination of all the grace and regality of her linage.

Apparently, the aspiring singer (what else would she be?) has a cool style jones too. In the magazine, she sports easy-going, age appropriate mix and match pieces from a few trendy designers like (high) Miu Miu and (low) American Apparel. A few months ago, Selah posted a video of her covering Justin Beiber’s  “Baby.” It was a raspy and raw rendition replete with apologies for “messing up,” but not unlike every other American tween sending a video message to Beiber for his bday, it was infused with more love than a little bit. Spring has come for Selah now; Beiber might have missed the video shout out, but we doubt he’ll miss the gorgeous Teen Vogue spread.
