Willow Smith’s Stylist Shares Fashion Secrets

Jaden Smith has been on one red carpet after another in recent weeks promoting his new film The Karate Kid. Not to be outdone by her big brother, aspiring singer Willow, 9, was spotted on a photo shoot of her own in Paris, France yesterday (July 25). The trendsetting tot showed off her usual funky fashion sense - not surprising since it turns out she has her very own stylist!

Willow's stylist Mariel Haenn recently dished on her young client's look, saying, “Willow is definitely inspired by Rihanna’s style.... Willow really knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like, and she’s vocal about it.”

She adds that mom Jada Pinkett-Smith has a say in both of her kids' clothing choices: “Jada said upfront that she didn’t want us to dress them like standard kids, like with Sesame Street T-shirts. And the kids really like dressing as adults and hope that adults will want to dress like them. But Jada will put her foot down if there’s something she doesn’t like, though if the kids really love it, she’ll usually let it pass.”

It turns out fashion is more than just a hobby for the Smith kids.

"I think the ultimate goal is for Willow and Jaden to have their own line," Mariel reveals.

What do you think of Jaden & Willow having their own stylist?

Jaden, who's becoming quite the Hollywood star, recently said his A-list papa taught him how to kiss for the big screen.

Will recently joked that he's worried that his son is already surpassing him:

The Karate Kid three day box office was 56 million in the United States which was bigger than any of my movies other than Hancock and I Am Legend, so for me I'm wondering if he even still needs to live at our house. People started calling me the Karate Kid's dad, I was like alright, Men In Black 3 is out immediately!"

Jaden's proud mom Jada Pinkett-Smith recently revealed that she always knew her son would be a star:

Jada Pinkett-Smith: I Always Knew Jaden Would Be A Performer

As the star of the new movie The Karate Kid, 11-year-old Jaden Smith has been stealing the spotlight from his very famous parents. Mom Jada Pinkett-Smith says she's not all surprised by her son's success.

On an appearance on Lopez Tonight this week, the HawthoRNe star revealed that she knew Jaden would be an entertainer before he was even born!

"I knew when I was carrying him. You know, it's Will and I... I just felt like two artists would create a little artist," she said. "When he was born he used to love dancing to Michael Jackson.... And then as he got older, he had some real skills. We were actually sitting at the dinner table and Will was saying, 'We're having a really hard time finding a child to play my son in The Pursuit of Happyness. And I looked at Jaden and Jaden looked at Will and said, 'Daddy, I'll audition.' And I said, 'We know this, Will: If he auditions, there's not going to be any child that's going to be able to do what he does.' 'Cause I just knew."

Not to be outdone by her big brother, 9-year-old Willow also has big plans for her future.

"She loves music," Jada revealed, adding, "She's going to have an album coming out. She's 9 years old, I don't know where that voice came from. She sings like she's a grown woman, like she's been around.... Music is her thing."

 

Jaden Smith: Dad Will Taught Me How Not-To Kiss On-Screen

Veteran actor Will Smith has been teaching son Jaden the ropes of the movie industry. One aspect that Will is an old pro at is kissing scences, and he has shared some of his wisdom with his son. Of his dads tips, 11-year-old Jaden, who is currently starring in The Karate Kid, told the Daily Record via Contact Music,

My dad said, 'Don't kiss with your mouth open, you're definitely too young for that!' I'm good at kissing, so it wasn't as challenging as it could've been had I not had previous experience."

The younger Smith then called the experience of kissing for a scene, one of the"most awkward things I've ever done in my 11 years of being on this planet."

Actress mom Jada Pinkett-Smith was banned from the set, Jaden reported, saying that she knew she would be better off in her trailer. "She agreed to stay in the tent, because she knew that she would come out like, 'Jaden, what are you doing, boy?'"

Along with newly release film, The Karate Kid, Jaden has two other movies lined up.

On putting her music career on hold for Willow's: "I started a metal band called Wicked Wisdom. I toured and I loved it. But soon after, my kids’ careers started taking off, so I sacrificed it. I am pleased to say my daughter, Willow, will be putting out an album soon and I look forward to enjoying music through her creations. So I am excited about that, and she’s pretty awesome. She will be better at it then I ever could be anyway! (Laughs)"

On Jaden's first star role in The Karate Kid: "That experience was quite unique, and that was probably one of the most difficult projects I have worked on because this was my son’s first starring role, and it was for such a classic movie. He was working in China away from his friends and family. Even though we brought family out there from time to time, it was still long hours. Not only did he have to shoot but he also had to practice during lunchtime and weekends. He really had no downtime for about four months. It wasn’t an easy thing to do or to watch. But the reward is knowing that he is so proud of the product. As a parent, it was amazing to see my child understand the fruits of hard work, and he sees that from what was produced just with his own talents. I also think that this was really the first time Will and I worked together at that 
capacity on such a project like The Karate Kid (2010). Like I said, it was hard, but I’m really proud of the product we were able to create as a family. I’m extremely proud, and I’m sure we will be doing a lot more of that."

Oprah, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Penny Hardway have all made the “The Giving Back 30″ list. This list features the top 30 celebrities who have made the largest donations to charity. Oprah is listed in the top ten, while Will, Jada, and Penny are all in the top 20. For the past two years Oprah has been named the most generous celebrity but this year the spot was taken by Paul Newman.

The Giving Back Fund’s third annual Giving Back 30, a list of celebrities who have made the largest donations to charity according to public records, was released in the November 1st issue of PARADE Magazine.

Readers may have been surprised to learn that Paul Newman replaced Oprah Winfrey as the most generous celebrity of 2008. Oprah had occupied the number one spot by a wide margin for the first two years of the list. Before his death, Newman made a donation of nearly $21 million to his self-named Newman’s Own Foundation. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were second with a $13.5 million donation to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which distributed $6.4 million to charity, including a $2 million grant to The Global Health Committee for an Ethiopian clinic project, a $1 million grant to the Make it Right Foundation founded by Pitt, and $500,000 to the Armed Services YMCA USA.

“Our hope is that celebrities will begin to become more comfortable sharing information about their charitable giving — perhaps not disclosing everything they give, but sharing enough to enable them to serve as role-models to their peers and fans,” said Marc Pollick, President and Founder of The Giving Back Fund.

It’s always nice to see celebrities giving back and helping those less unfortunate. This year we had four names on the list, lets see who will step up to the plate so we can keeping adding more of us each and every year.

 

Jada Pinkett Smith Spills How She and Will Smith Keep Their Sex Life Strong


Need a little TMI today? Jada Pinkett Smith's got it for you! A long lasting marriage in Hollywood is pretty non-existent so we've wondered how Jada and Will Smith have kept it alive all of these years. Sure, there are multiple rumors surrounding the couple as being swingers and getting it on with their own genders, but Jada has revealed what's made them strong for all of these years. Basically having sexy times at her girlfriend's house...
 

Jada Pinkett Smith:Will Smith’s private little porn star

will_smith_444879a1

If you always wondered why on earth did Will Smith marry a garden gnome, you’re about to have your question answered.

A few months ago, Jada Pinkett Smith told us how she loved her lesbian sex scenes in her movie The Women and how she wanted raunchier, and more explicit scenes (but was stopped by the director, who is obviously either a eunuch or gay).

Now, she tells Redbook magazine that she and Will sneak into other people’s bedrooms or bathrooms to have a quickie.

Sharing sex tips, Jada told the magazine: “Be sneaky… your girlfriend’s house at a party. The bathroom. A bedroom.”

 Talking of other places they like to get down to business, the actress added: “Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex.

 ”Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Pull over on the side of the road… Just switch it up.

 ”Anything like that can keep it going. Anything it takes to keep the flame alive.”

Ok, if the following saying stands, ”the smaller the dog the bigger the bite”, then can we deduce that the shorter and tinier the girl…the better the ride?
