Is Willow Smith the Next Rihanna?

Willow Smith and Rihanna

Rihanna better watch her designer-draped back. Pint-sized fashionista Willow Smith is quickly making her mark on the fashion world with her daring style, and has plans to start her own clothing line.

Smith, who shares the same stylist as Rihanna, admires the elder star’s bold look. “Willow is definitely inspired by Rihanna’s style,” stylist Mariel Haenn tells HollywoodLife.com. “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.”

Her mother Jada Pinkett Smith wants to make sure her kids stand out from the crowd. “Jada said upfront that she didn’t want us to dress them like standard kids, like with Sesame Street T-shirts,” says Haenn. “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.”

There are already talks of a clothing line for Will Smith’s nine-year-old daughter and her actor brother Jaden Smith. “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.”

    Judging by that picture, yes, its a possibility.

    If they mean “Music of the Sun” and “A Girl Like Me”-era Rihanna, that’s a compliment. If they mean modern-day, it’s not.

    [Reply]

  18. MATT DOFAT

    @lakai… i absolutely agree…she nor anyone should listen to haters or any other ppl who bring negative energy towards others they don’t know. Come on… haters say nasty things about ppl (*cough* mike missz lillt *cough*) while rihanna expresses herself how SHE WANTS and doesnt care about what ppl say about her.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I not a rihanna stan at all but im mature i dont waste my time sayin nasty stuff behind a computer

    (dat goes for you true blue)

  19. xoxoxo

    @Rhino…anyway you say it its a compliment…rihanna is a beautiful successful TALENTED girl who has sold millions has grammys in her 5 year career and doesnt give a shxt bout what ppl think

    her first two albums she was like every other industry chick that didnt have a voice of her own now she’s out makin herself known. i dont understand why a little girl must grow up to be cookie cutter clean…she should be able to express herself and be different, so more power to her

    In order for me to be a “hater”, I would have to have said something that wasn’t true about Rihanna. As far as I know, I have yet to do this, and I don’t believe in spreading lies about people.

    @TRUE BLUE

    “In order for me to be a “hater”, I would have to have said something that wasn’t true about Rihanna.”

    DAT’S NOT THE DEFINITION OF BEING A HATER, ITS DISSING, SAYIN CHILDISH, AND SMART THINGS ABOUT SOMEONE YOU DONT KNOW ALL BECAUSE YOU HATE WHAT THEY GOT

    ALL THE OPINIONS ON HER, EITHER THE PICS OF LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE OR THIS POST HAVE BEEN NEGATIVE OR UNFAVORABLE OF HER IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER

    IM NOT SAYIN U CANT EXPRESS UR OPINION BUT ITS CLEAR THAT U DONT LIKE HER

    [Reply]

    @ Matt:

    I would take you more seriously if you didn’t copy Kanye’s typing style. And how can something be both “childish” and “smart”? It’s either one or the other, it can’t be both.

    Anyway, do I stop you from saying anything you like about Rihanna? No. I go on stories about artists I like, and I read unfavorable comments about them, too. Unless someone says something factually incorrect, I don’t say anything to them because they’re entitled to their opinions, whether they’re “hating” or not.

    Hating would imply I’m jealous of Rihanna. I’m not. She doesn’t have anything I want, and anything she does have, there’s someone else who has it ten times more, and I usually have nothing against that person. You stans brand anyone who doesn’t like your idol as being a “hater”. Believe it or not, it is possible to dislike someone and think they’re terrible at their job without “hating” on them at all. Throwing out the “hater” excuse all the time is what looks childish.

    @TRUE BLUE

    AGREE TO DISAGREE, DIS CAN GO BACK AND FORTH ALL U WANT BUT ALL I KNOW IS IM NOT GONNA GO ON A POST ON AN ARTIST I DONT PARTICULARLY LIKE AND SAY CHILDISH THINGS LIKE :
    “Does that mean that Willow can’t sing, either?”
    or
    “Please, this song is number one because it’s EMINEM. Rihanna is insignificant, so don’t give her so much credit.”

    sorry to break to ya, but u sound like a HATER in the second QUOTE

    @ Matt:

    And what I said is true. When has Eminem put out something for it to not have success? He doesn’t NEED other people to get a hit record, not especially at this point in his career where he is a tried and true veteran. Love The Way You Lie is his song, not Rihanna’s. So the success of it shouldn’t be credited to her. It really wouldn’t matter who sang on it, the song would’ve been a hit nonetheless, Rihanna didn’t do anything special with it. And I would say this if it were any other female singer featured on the track instead of her.

    You stans have a hard time accepting facts that aren’t in favor of your idol, so naturally you stoop to the level of calling people who call it as they see it “haters”. That is pure childishness. I do give credit where it is due. Live Your Life was a T.I. song, yet Rihanna being featured on it did help its success. Umbrella was a smash hit because it was a fire track, not because Jay-Z was on it. His part was even cut out in some versions of the song that went on the radio.

    @True BLue

    im not that really of a rihanna fan, i mean like her music but im no stan. i TRULY speak it as it is and we can agree to disagree on this but i HIGHLY DOUBT it would be as big if rihanna was on it. she adds the radio hit aspect to it and most importantly she can FULLY relate to da song, that’s one of the biggest reasons why its big…she can relate

    but since you said that eminem can get a hit record without the need of a featured guest we’ll see…lets see how i high his next single charts im not doubting him but i’ll go off what you said

    [...] serious or fun who knows). Not to be confused with RiRi’s single, though she has somewhat copied the pop icon’s style. A lot of tweeking before this track was finalized i’m sure! *Whips hurr* Download: Willow [...]

  52. lilli

    i cant belive dat he mother let
    THEM acutually dress like adults. And she lets them do watever. She is the parent she should tell them wat 2 wear. ’cause it says,”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.”

    I mean LOL!!! who would possibly let their child dress like a hucci mama if they wanted 2. There’s nothing wrong with her wardrobe or I don’t think jada is a bad mother,its just bad paretnting. I am 11 and I know dis s***.
