Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. Those are the only two names I could come up with when I was trying to think of another Hollywood mother/daughter duo that could pull off wearing matching outfits and look as effortlessly stylish and as straight-up badass as Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow.
Last night, Jada and Willow were at Chanel's annual Chanel Collection des Metiers d'Art 2016/2017 showcase at the Ritz Paris wearing complementary black dresses, both rocking lace and fur accents. On another mother/daughter celeb combo, this would be cheesy. Willow and Jada look dope. Willow is a Chanel Ambassador. She just turned 16. This is the most grown up I’ve ever seen her look and Jada basically hasn’t aged in 20 years.
Jada tweeted about the event and called it a “Mommie Daughter night in Paris.”
Say what you will about the Smith family, but I think it’s sweet that they genuinely seem to like hanging out with each other. Pharrell, Cara Delevingne and Lily-Rose Depp were also at the event. Again, Willow is 16. At 16, I wanted nothing to do with my mother because I was a brat. At 16, if I was at an event with PHARRELL, my mother wouldn’t exist. But is it different when your mom is famous? Does that make the teenage embarrassment thing go away? Willow and Jaden used to hang out with the Jenners and we know Cara and Kendall are close. As far as I can tell, there are no pics of Willow socializing with anyone other than her mom. She took her dad to the Chanel show in Paris in July. It’s adorable. Is it obvious how obsessed I am with this family?
On Monday, I wrote about Willow’s brother Jaden’s potential after the release of his new single. Willow performed her new song for the first time at last night’s event and it’s a far cry from Whip My Hair. I’m actually more into it than Jaden’s Fallen. The song is called November 9th and it’s an emotional ballad she wrote on the day of the U.S. election.
You can listen to the full song here.
