Alright, so we know that the new futuristic action flick After Earth is Will and Jaden Smith’s movie. We get it. And although the Smith men have been ruling the red carpet as of late, right now we’ve GOT to give it up for Willow! The younger Smith sibling might not be acting in the film, but nobody can deny she absolutely nailed her look last night at the New York premiere. Dressed in head-to-toe black and white (a trend she’s been loving!), the 12-year-old was the epitome of chicness far beyond her years. A statement collar, striped pants, and sleek, super shiny hair… the result is an unexpected preppiness with a dash of signature Willow cool.
Rather than toughen up the look with edgy details like her trademark combat boots, this time the singer kept the things simple in achromatic layers. Side stripe trousers have been huge the past couple of seasons on the runway, with designers like Derek Lam, Chloe, and Prabal Gurung showing various high fashion twists on the tracksuit bottoms. Willow styled her version with a pointy white collared shirt under a crewneck sweater, giving the outfit a VERY grown-up, Karl Lagerfeld vibe. It might be an unusual fashion muse for a tween, but let’s be real—we’re not talking about your average 12-year-old, and if there’s anyone who can steal the spotlight from her own family (temporarily, at least), it’s Willow Smith.
