When Willow Smith, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's youngest daughter, walked the red carpet at the premier of her brother Jaden's film, "The Karate Kid," her outfit for the event had tongues wagging. Smith, who likes to dress up at every red carpet turn, wore a velvet pair of leopard-print harem pants, a cheetah-print jacket, tall combat boots and thick gold link necklaces. While some applauded Willow for her creative spirit, others deemed the outfit way too grown up for a nine-year-old girl.
Whichever side you lean on, Willow is no doubt a budding fashionista.
“My mom walked in and said, “Willow.” And I was like, “Mom, give me a minute,” because I was focused on writing. And I looked up and there was Dolce,” says Willow recalling the first time she met one half of the Italian design duo, Dolce and Gabbana.
