Willow Smith, 15, is definitely not your average teenager, Teen Vogue’s global issue fully confirms what a star she truly is. The daughter of Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith is now set to make her mark in the fashion world as the face of Chanel.
For her Teen Vogue cover look, Willow went retro with a graphic winged-out eyeliner Cleopatra inspired look. In her interview with the mag, Willow talks about how her style doesn’t really change who she is: “I have some cool shoes on and I wear crazy eyeliner, but it’s really all about emulating the colors you feel inside. A lot of clothes are cute, but after you buy the Yeezy shoes, after you get your hair done with a weave, you’re still the same person. I feel like more and more kids are starting to realize this.”
On her brother Jaden: “We’re like binary stars, like two parts of one thing. I know what he’s thinking at all times. And he knows what I’m thinking. We’re not identical twins, but it feels like that in a lot of ways.”
On working with Chanel: “Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. Like, how am I a Chanel ambassador? It is so beautiful. I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further. But I am doing it every day just by being myself.”
