In just 11 years, Willow Smith has accomplished a ton. She’s an actress, a singer who’s released a platinum single and apparently she’s also quite good at ballet. The entire Smith family is pretty talented, matter of fact. Now Willow is taking a small step into the fashion world with a new site “l’art Des Chiffons” (or as Google translates, “Art rags”). It’s a Tumblr consisting of images that the performing artist and child of Hollywood finds noteworthy.
Willow announced her new project by way of her official Twitter account on Tuesday, asking her Twitter friends to follow it. In a series of photos and gifs, Will and Jada’s youngest reveals a penchant for runway models; the Olsen Twins; Brit It Girls Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Sienna Miller; Miley Cyrus (before she cut all her hair off); bloggers The Man Repeller and Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast; and street style stars Miroslava Duma, Olivia Palermo and Miranda Kerr.
This is somewhat surprising given Willow’s personal style, which right now consists of a lot of oversize tees, lace-up combat boots and bowler hats—not the Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, studded jean shorts and Proenza Schouler handbags that populate l’art Des Chiffons.
Perhaps she’s considering a new look, one that’s more in lockstep with the fashion industry at large. Whatever happens, we hope she doesn’t forget about this girl, because she’s pretty cool just the way she is.
