Willow Smith is a godsend, and every day we thank our lucky stars and both Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for bestowing the glorious gift of Willow’s style and talent upon us.
But we couldn’t help wonder where all of Willow’s swagger came from. Could it be possible, we thought, that she’d gotten all of that unencumbered style from her mother? Or did it go the other way around? Did Jada only start upping the ante when her daughter took center stage?
As it turns out, the answer is no — Mrs. Smith has had a lot of hits in her time, and some misses, too. She’s done the matchy matchy hi-low dance of pairing her orange Birkin with an orange velour tracksuit, but she’s also a huge fan of jewel tones that flatter her skin and strapless dresses that accentuate her decolletage. And, quite frankly, she’s got the prettiest decolletage we’ve seen in a while.
At the end of the day, Willow has something to learn from her mother about color and proportion, and Jada could take an eccentric page or two from her daughter’s book. It’s going in one direction now — Willow said during a radio interview with DJ Envy that her mom often picks outfits for her. We wonder if it will ever go the other way around?
