Willow Smith stepped out in a giant pink-tipped perm wig while shopping at Louis Vuitton on Friday, and it IMMEDIATELY reminded us of another serial high-hair wearer—Ms. Nicki Minaj! As it turns out, the Marie Antoinette-inspired wig was actually from Barbz herself. Willow tweeted to her “Fireball” video costar “Thank you @nikkiminaj you’re amazing!!!” with a picture of her sporting the new ’do. Nicki replied “Ha!!! WORK willowcita!!!!! You’re more than welcome!!!! @OfficialWillow BOOM!” showcasing the ENTIRE ensemble (plus hair!) in a full-body pic. Cue our minds exploding. The 18th century wig paired with a preppy mixed-prints ensemble and metallic puffy coat looks like if Marie Antoinette went on a shopping spree at Madewell and then IMMEDIATELY after decided to explore the galaxy in her custom-made spacesuit and decked-out space shuttle. Amazing.
But we’ve always wondered—what DOES make Willow’s style so enticing? How does she know what pieces to throw together? Does she have a stylist? Is Nicki Minaj her fashion inspiration? And, most of all, what hairstyle did she regret wearing most? Well, to our luck, Willow actually stopped by the ol’ MTV Style office to chat and answered all of our BURNING questions. We bet you can’t guess what her favorite shoes are that she bought recently! Watch the video below to find out.
