When Willow Smith was ten, she entered our ear holes with her singular hit “Whip My Hair.” And, oh gosh, did we whip our hair. Back and forth, up and down, there it went, tendril after tendril flopping and resisting gravity, as if we’d all become transfixed by some sort of short siren.
But now she’s 14, and she’s back to capture our attention. This time, she’s hoping to hit the catwalk. That’s right, Willow Smith is now Willow: model. The Society has picked her up, and it’s the same management company that works with “Kendall” (nee Kendall Jenner), “Andreja” (nee Andrej Pejic), Irina Lazareanu, Adriana Lima and Lindsey Wixson. That’s a seriously stacked house of talent, considering that Irina is a former muse of Karl Lagerfeld, and Lindsey was a muse for Miu Miu before she skyrocketed to supermodel status. And, hell, Adriana has been a Victoria’s Secret angel since 2000, and Andreja and Kendall are the It Girls of the moment.
So, if anyone can make Willow (nee Willow Smith) a thing, it’s The Society.
