feature: willow is on a major roll this month! check out the creative wunderkind on the cover of w magazine’s april 2016

March 11, 2016

Just days after being named Chanel’s newest brand ambassador, 15-year-old creative wunderkind, Willow, covers W Magazine’s April 2016 issue alongside Zendaya and Kiernan Shipka. Decked out in Dior Haute Couture, Schiaparelli Haute Couture, and Atelier Versace, Willow rocked her navy blue-dipped locs and a crown of safety pins; a look she came up with on her own. “I was in my bathroom yesterday and saw some safety pins on the counter and was just like, ‘Let me stab a dread real quick.’ When I did it, I was, like, ‘Oh, this is dope,’ ” the singer told Lynn Hirschberg in her cover story interview.
