Willow Smith: Beauty Icon?
We’re not going to pretend to know why Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—is turning up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her frighteningly toned mother, but we can tell you that we have been intrigued and, yes, even a little impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came on Saturday, in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferragamo. But even that piece of exceptional outerwear came in a close third to two next-level hair looks that have really captivated our attention over the last 72 hours:
Exhibit A: Side-Swept With a Skunk Stripe at Emporio Armani
Having rocked the über-trendy side shave all summer long to support her brother Jayden’s Karate Kid press junket, Willow is no stranger to experimenting with the asymmetrical ‘do. At Emporio Armani, this meant adding frosted tips to a free-flowing coif that was brushed out and pulled to the side.
Exhibit B: Mesozoic Rattail at Dolce & Gabbana
Getting snapped in the Dolce & Gabbana VIP room is not to be taken lightly, something that was not lost on Willow, who sported a French-braided, single triceratops ridge that transitioned into a woven, navel-grazing rattail last night—appropriate fare for hobnobbing with the likes of Naomi Campbell, of course.
No word on whether or not the pre-teen is headed to Paris as well, but we secretly hope that more outrageous cameos await us in the week to come.
