Willow Smith isn’t just the daughter to two major Hollywood Superstars, she’s also a starlet in her own right. With her most recent splash into the music scene with the chart topping “Whip My Hair,” understandably she’s become a normal target for the paparazzi and regular on the celebrity blogs. But she’s notably one of the most interesting when it comes to the whole tribe of celebrity kids, and it’s her unique fashion sense that is no doubt a result of her rebel like style that continues to keep everyone talking. And even some in shock that an 11-year-old could convince her parents to allow her to dress with such fearlessness and disregard to her age.
Whatever Willow decides to wear or do to her hair always ignites a debate about parenting. So it’s no surprise that when Willow decided to rock a very interesting pair of spiked platform sneakers on Mother’s day that the whole internet began immediately chasing Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith with pitchforks and disheartening blog comments.
The shoes that caused an uproar:
I actually find the shoes intriguing for some odd reason. I think for me I just think it’s refreshing that someone as young as Willow has the courage to do what the hell she wants despite the criticisms of others. That takes a lot of courage rather it looks good or not. When I was her age, I had no interests in rocking platforms, but I would hope people didn’t question my parents’ parenting abilities because I opted to dress differently. I was a weirdo at 11, and I turned out to do well in life.
Although that is my take, I can see why Willow causes such a debate amongst others. She has a polarizing sense of style and I have a feeling that she’s only getting started.
What are your thoughts on Willow’s interesting pair of kicks? Would you let your 11-year-old rock platforms?
