Willow and Jaden Smith x Interview Magazine with Q & A by Pharrell Williams.Willow and Jaden Smith are the definition of modern day prodigies. The 15 and 18 year old siblings have accomplished more in their young careers than most entertainers will in a lifetime. The duo embark on their latest fete together, gracing the September cover of Interview magazine. Bursting onto the scene with her confident and explosive, Whip My Hair single, Willow Smith hasn’t looked back since. Following her charismatic debut, the 15-year old entertainer has added some serious accolades to her portfolio. Garnering the attention of major brands, Willow has fronted campaigns for Marc Jacobs, appeared on the covers of Teen Vogue and CR Fashion Book, and is currently the face of Chanel eyewear. Jaden’s accomplishments are just as impressive. Starring in blockbuster films and nurturing a promising music career of his own, Smith has quickly become a cultural influencer. The unapologetic gender-bending fashionisto routinely finds himself as the topic of controversial debates concerning his very public androgynous style. On the cover Jaden and Willow Smith stand confidently side by side outfitted in sleek, futuristic looking outerwear. Photographed by industry veteran Steven Klein and styled by legendary editor Karl Templer, the duo are captioned as the The New Order. Inside the issue, the teenage stars pose in an assortment of street style focused Fall collection. pieces from Hood By Air, Juun J, Anne Demeulemeester, Rick Owens, and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Pharrell Williams joins Willow and Jaden for an intimate Q & A where they discuss everything from being famous to current issues in the world today. “Yep. I know so many kids who literally are, like, Instagram-famous. They have done nothing but post pictures on Instagram. And they have followings. People love to see them in person, but it’s only because they post on their Instagram. It’s literally crazy. Kids will paint a picture of themselves that is so far beyond who they actually are. It’s like they’re wearing someone else’s skin, shared Willow. A question I would like to present to the world is: Where is the love? And what are we doing? Who’s making the decisions that are putting us in the predicaments that we are in, with all of these people losing their lives around the world in so many different ways? I feel like a serious revolution needs to take place in order for human beings to evolve in a way where we can truly exist as a society. Because, right now, we do not act as a true society. We act as a world under terror, just scrambling to survive”, explains Jaden.
Where is the love? And what are we doing?
