Child of privilege, Willow Smith can’t dress herself and has had a stylist for years, her stylist is now adding injury to insult by using stolen designs. It seems the one armed half jacket Willow wore to the AMAs was a copy cat. We’re not talking borrowed elements, but a full fledged rip off of a piece by Mother of London. The designer of the original piece Mildred Von Hildegard told Haute Macabre, “I’m disappointed and saddened that this will negatively impact my business. My original design is now recognized in the mass media as someone else’s work, and it’s very hurtful on both a personal and professional levels.”
If Willow was just some normal 1o year old shopping for herself this might not be a big deal but she’s made such an concerted effort to have a fashion impact, by having a stylist from so early on, that it really is a shameful fashion crime she should be held accountable for.
The worst thing about it, Willow not only can afford the original look, but more than likely could have borrowed it for the event. Furthermore, if you have all the money in the world and are going to reproduce someone’s designs, at least make it look good and not like some Forever 21, ill fitting, pleather bo bo version. To be fair Willow’s karma coach has probably come to the decision and advised Smith that she shouldn’t wear leather for cosmic reasons.
