Willow Smith’s Style Evolution, From Rock Star Teen to Chanel Muse – W Magazine

Willow Smith practically grew up on the red carpet, attending premieres of her parents’ films as young as four years old. Now, at the age of 21, Willow is a star in her own right as a musician, actress, and fashion designer, working on the sustainable streetwear label MSFTS with her brother, Jaden. She’s also a regular at many of the top European houses’ fashion shows, including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Dior. But through it all, she’s stayed true to her own personal style: always wearing plenty of black, Doc Martens boots, and taking on a commitment to executing full hair and makeup looks that will make her ensembles stand out, without fail. Here, take a look back at how Willow’s style has evolved over the years.
