Willow Smith Named Fashion Icon by Derek Lam in Vogue


From C+C — It’s quite an accomplishment to be named a fashion icon by a well-respected designer. That achievement is even more commendable when you haven’t even celebrated your 11th birthday yet.

Young starlet Willow Smith achieved that distinction when Derek Lam named her a fashion icon in Vogue Magazine. Of Willow’s spirited fashion and imaginative beauty looks, Derek said: “Naturally talented, charismatic, unblemished optimism, with the whole wide world open to her possibilities and abilities. I think she is the future-forward American icon” when asked to name a person he considers a fashion icon for Vogue Magazine.

The daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow is lauded for her funky, fearless sense of style from her heart-shaped braid in “Whip My Hair” music video to her pink Converse sneaker-pants at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

She has named Rihanna as one of her fashion inspirations and Mariel Haenn as her stylist.
