The Real Willow Offically Whips It In New Music Video

The fashion in Willow Smith's eagerly awaited "Whip My Hair' is the 9-year-old's sure to be must have tween sensation's details: the 3-D built out fingernails, the rainbow-curled eyelashes and the I-don't-think her lip is really pierced-lips. (I hope the folks at Claire's and Forever 21 are taking notes) The littlest Smith succeeds in letting her hair douse color on a bland school cafeteria. And she pays homage to old school with beatbox. The video, which was released on Monday has already had nearly 2 million hits on You Tube. Yes, really. The song is like a millennium Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Want To Have Fun Smart video. Lots of fun. Totally manageable young kiddie fashion. We just hope little Willow stays young for as long as she can.

This just in:  If anyone loves that hooded, aeronautical one-piece Willow is wearing, it's a OneZ from new Callifornia Brand  CCR (California Christiania Republic).  The video marks the debut of CCR's OneZ. We'll be watching them.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
