Weekly summer flame: Willow

SUMMER FLAME WILLOW SMITH INSPIRATION

Willow Smith may have been in the spotlight since she was young, but make no mistake- she is fiercely unique and has already created her own identity through her music and art, despite her age. Here’s all you need to know about the rising star.

Fun fact

Willow has been open in the past about her body insecurities. In a recent interview, she said that she used to feel like her body shape was not appealing enough, when compared to curvier girls. She overcame this negative body image though, when she realised everyone wants what they don’t have when it comes to looks. Now, Willow proudly embraces her body and places emphasis on leading a healthy lifestyle.

How she glows

Willow is a fan of pampering herself with beauty products. Exfoliating is very important to her. In the past she’s used Fresh Face Masks, which gently exfoliate the skin and get rid of impurities. She also uses foot masks and scrubs- after all, looking after the rest of your body is just as important as looking after your face.

Steal her style

Willow’s taste in fashion can be described as bohemian, adventurous and expressive. Her style is often tomboy-ish, and she prefers comfortable fits instead of flashy, uncomfortable outfits. She said herself that she wants to wear clothes she can “climb trees in”- that explains why she always looks ready for an adventure!

Why she’s a flame

Willow is no stranger to tough times, and while growing up in the public eye may sound like a dream to some of us, she’s been open in the past about fame being a difficult burden to bear. She had issues with self-harm when she was younger, and has felt overwhelmed and questioned her path in life. However, she grew past that period- nowadays, she’s a lot more in tune with herself, and isn’t afraid to go against the grain and speak her truth.

"If I know what's true in my heart and my soul, then what people say can't shape that." Willow

Willow shows us that it’s important to express yourself, and find your own identity despite outside opinions and circumstances. Her art, style and personality send a clear message- don’t let anyone else define your passion or your path in life.
