Jada Pinkett Smith takes inspiration from daughter's edgy 'do

It seems Willow Smith's daring streak seems to have rubbed off on her mum Jada Pinkett Smith. The mum-of-two has debuted an edgy new hairdo, which seems to have been inspired by her daughter's latest style.

Attending a Beverly Hills gala dinner to promote equality for women and girls around the world, Jada showed off her new 'do – a buzzcut with blonde sides and a long ponytail.



It appears to be a more extreme version of the look Willow is currently rocking – long hair with shaved sides.

The mother-daughter team have just returned from Paris, where Willow did a shoot with Karl Lagerfeld.

Jada described the German style kaiser as "the sweetest man" on her Twitter page, adding she would "never forget" the "magical" day.

Jada and Willow have both had their birthdays this autumn. Willow turned 13 on Halloween and her mum posted: "I can't believe our little baby is turning 13 today :)" on Twitter.


Meanwhile Jada celebrated her 42nd birthday on September 18, and shared her reflections on getting older the day after.

"What I learned about myself is this, when I was younger I was not a good problem solver, meaning I had a very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life," she wrote.

"I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life's inevitable obstacles."
