Willow Smith photographed by Karl Lagerfield in “The world according to Willow” written by Steffie Nelson for V Magazine (Feb 2014) Fashion editor Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.
“I can never tell what I’m gonna wear,” Willow says. “I kind of just put on what feels right. Sometimes that’s Converse and a T-shirt, sometimes it’s Givenchy heels and leather pants.” Karl Lagerfeld and fashion editor Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele certainly noticed. For the shoot featured here they asked Willow to bring some of her own pieces to Paris, so they could mix it up. Boy-drag boxer shorts and oxford shoes? Straight out of her closet. Willow describes Lagerfeld as “very, very friendly and open.” She giggles. “I thought he was gonna be really mysterious, like peering over his glasses, evaluating. But he was just awesome. I don’t have words, because he’s such a huge icon.”
