Willow self-styled her locs with a whimsical safety pin design she came up with herself. From the W Magazine interview;

That was my idea,” Smith said. “I was in my bathroom yesterday and saw some safety pins on the counter and was just like, ‘Let me stab a dread real quick.’ When I did it, I was, like, ‘Oh, this is dope.’”

Willow, who was featured alongside “Dream Teens”, Zendaya Coleman and Kiernan Shipka, spoke of breaking into singing at age 10 with her hit single Whip My Hair.

I kept telling my parents that I wanted to sing, and they said, “Okay—we can get some writers and producers here if you want this to be real.” So they got all those people in a room, and I was talking, talking, talking about the things that I loved, and the writers came up with that song. It was a beautiful experience.”

She also shared that her famous parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, trust her to set her own fashion boundaries.

Only when I was 6 or 7. I wanted to wear things then that might have been too crazy. But now they know I set my own boundaries.”

Willow is beautiful. Does she come off as that cool cousin who just happens to be a little odd? Yes, but it works for her.

Is Willow Smith considered a “carefree black girl “?

I’m having a hard time understanding how a safety pin stuck in her dreads is being disrespectful. It seems mostly silly to me. Not trying to pick a fight. I’m just truly curious as to why you find it so disrespectful.

Too bad I can’t say the same for her brother.

Why does high fashion have to equal looking miserable? I guess letting them smile would be a bit too …normal!

the purpose of the model not smiling is to not draw attention away from the item(s) you’re modeling. the actual verbiage “you are simply a hanger.” interned at a local modeling agency
