Willow and Jaden smith land the latest cover of Interview magazine
The two fashion icons spoke on a variety of things in their interview conducted by style icon, Pharrell Williams. Willow who was recently named a brand ambassador for Chanel reveals how she and Jaden gained confidence to go along with their bold, eye-catching and iconic personal styles with Interview Mag.
“Me and Jaden, when we were younger … Ooh! We would wear the craziest things. Jaden would only wear his Spider-Man costume. I would freaking mismatch every single shirt and pants in my closet. We would just be so rambunctious with our clothing choices,” she said. “And when we were old enough to start dressing ourselves, my mom was like, “Are you sure you want to go out like that? And me and Jaden would be like, ‘You know what? Yes.’ And she’d totally accept it.'”
Willow say’s her parents play a huge role in allowing her to experiment without judgement.
“I feel like that’s where most of our confidence comes from. Because we weren’t told, ‘Oh, you don’t look good in that. You look crazy. People are gonna think this about you,'” Willow continued. “Like, obviously, that was going to be happening regardless, but it wasn’t like that ruled what we did or the choices that we made.”
The two of them continue to receive a huge amount of criticism from social media but also receive a huge amount of respect and praise.
“Nobody knows that Willow and I were much, much cooler before,” he told Interview. “Like, before people were looking at the things that we were doing, we were so much more, like, method with fashion. We really went all the way. We went the extra mile on everything because there was no one looking at us. We’ve been through the roof, with ludicrous fashion ideas since we were extremely young.”
Both Jaden and Willow are faces of two of the most legendary brands in Chanel and Louis Vuitton in which Jaden was featured as the face for the spring 2016 womenswear campaign for LV.
“If we didn’t have the kind of exposure to the world that we do now, people wouldn’t hear the positive thoughts that we have. It’s amazing to be able to work with iconic people and to have my name on something that’s so beautiful, but at the same time, the only reason why I do it is so that I can have more of a reach to different kinds of people and spread my message,” said Willow. “The only thing that really matters is spreading love and light and acceptance and unity throughout the entire world in any way that you possibly can.”
