Willow Smith, the pre-pubescent daughter of Hollywood power couple Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, makes waves every time she does something as simple as cut her hair (or whip it back and forth, for that matter). But the pint-sized fashionista has a swagger rarely seen in someone so young -- and in a new interview, she even reveals some surprising sources for her inspiration.
Last night (July 1) at the 2012 BET Awards, female singers and rappers strutted their stuff at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Entertainers like Brandy, Monica, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Michelle Williams and Willow Smith all dressed to impress for the show, with some taking on more edgy looks while others kept it classic in fancy dresses.
It's easy to forget that under the fierce style and fame -- much of it earned, some of it inherited -- that Willow Smith is still just 11 years old. Yes, 11! The starlet, who recently came under criticism for rocking what was likely a magnetic tongue ring, is still a kid trying to find her way and find herself, a theme that she explores in her new 'I Am Me' video.
We're already convinced that Willow is an infinitely stylish creature. When she's not whippin' her hair, she's shaving it. She's always brightly adorned in fabulous attire, the epitome of street style. Now, judging from a photo she tweeted, it appears she has a pierced tongue! Or does she?
Willow is one of the most stylin' pre-teens of her generation. The long and lean singer, known for whippin' her hair and then shaving it and/or dyeing it, showed off her bright and bold style in Los Angeles earlier this month, hitting a Barnes & Noble in Calabasas, California, which is the site of the Justin Bieber paparazzo altercation.
