Willow Smith to Design a Fashion Line, Says Rihanna is Her Fashion Icon

    Remember when we discussed Willow Smith's funky style? Most of you believed she was picking out her own crazy outfits and Mom, Jada Pinkett, was letting her walk out the house in them. Well, we were wrong.

    It turns out the budding fashionista has the same stylist as Rihanna, which isn't completely far-fetched considering Rih's head-turning looks. That stylist, the amazing Mariel Haenn, told the backstory behind Willow's daring style. She said that Willow admires Rih's look, weighs in on her outfits (which she prefers to be more rockstar than princess) and is starting her own fashion line! Gasp.

    Will more teens walk around looking like this? Only time will tell...

    Check out the clip below and read more here:

    On Rihanna:

    “Willow is definitely inspired by Rihanna’s style,” Mariel Haenn tells “We make an effort to give Willow her own style, so as not to be a mini-version of Rihanna, but Willow really knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like, and she’s vocal about it.”

    Mom, Jada Pinkett's input:

    “Jada said upfront that she didn’t want us to dress them like standard kids, like with Sesame Street T-shirts,” Mariel says with a laugh. “And the kids really like dressing as adults and hope that adults will want to dress like them. But Jada will put her foot down if there’s something she doesn’t like, though if the kids really love it, she’ll usually let it pass.”

    On Future Clothing Line: 

    "With Rihanna, pretty soon after she came on the scene, you started seeing designers from Forever 21 to Gucci coming out with styles mimicking her look. We hope the same thing happens here, but I think the ultimate goal is for Willow and Jaden to have their own line." 

    Would you wear Willow Smith's designs? And what do you think of the painted ear look she recently rocked?
