Willow Smith -  daughter of celebrities Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith - has burst on the fashion and music scene in a big way.

The 10-year-old has spent the last week sitting front row with her mom, Jada,  at high end fashion shows Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Ferragamo. Her outfits - well, they've been an eclectic blend of snakeskin leather leggings and vintage sneakers. The knee-high, tie-up boots have been cute. But not sure about the mini-minis on such a young girl and  I think it just bothers me that this barely-there-tween has a mohawk and is dressed like Rihanna, but oh well. Anyway fashion bloggers have been dedicating posts to her outfits. See some of them here.

But it's her single, "Whip My Hair" produced by Jay-Z and dad, Will, (whom she amazingly looks just like) that has garnered the most chit chat. The song is catchy and fashionably cute. Her voice is deeper then I'd expect for a 10-year-old, but who could resist that infectious hook? I've heard the song once and I can't get it out of my head. I know a "fashionable" video is on its way.

Looks like we have a fledgling fashion icon on our hands. What do you think? 

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.
