Willow Smith banking on 'fashion future'

Willow Smith

Willow Smith has "been writing dozens of letters" to high fashion magazines to secure a column.

The 12-year-old daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is committed to establishing a career in the fashion industry.

The highly ambitious preteen is creating a blog and is hoping to write for a publication like Vogue.

"She's been writing dozens of letters and applications and asking everyone she knows to pull strings for her," a source told Star magazine.

Will and Jada are very supportive of Willow's dreams.

However, the loving parents require that she excel in school.

"They told Willow they'll hire a designer to build her a website-as long as she keeps on top of her school assignments," the source said.

"She hates homework, and her parents always have to stay on her about it; she's convinced that her future is in fashion."

Jada has spoken previously about how she and husband of 14 years Will support their children's creative expression.

"[We] instill the power of individuality," she told People magazine recently.

"We… communicate with our kids in a way that our message overpowers any other message that they get out there."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
