Happy 6th birthday to Hollywood’s most famous tomboy, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt!
While scrolling through some pictures of this small human today, I was struck by the fact that even though she’s the child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Shiloh seems to have looked elsewhere for fashion advice. Looked all the way, in fact, to one of my favorite people on the planet, Ellen DeGeneres…Shiloh seems to favor the same button-ups, sweater vests, short hair, and sneakers that Ellen favors on her show. And you know what? I’m not mad about it.
A lot has been said about whether it’s appropriate that Shiloh tends toward fashion choices that are more typically ‘masculine’, but I for one think it’s awesome that her parents let her express herself however she wants. It seems pretty clear that Brangelina encourage Shiloh to be exactly who she wants to be, and if other people have issues with that, that’s their problem. In fact, I actually think it’s refreshing to see a little girl who isn’t being forced into girly-girl adult clothes like Suri Cruise is. Doesn’t it make way more sense for a six-year old to wear jeans and sneakers instead of high heels and flamenco dresses? I think so. Is there a smile on her face? Great, then shut up.
So in honor of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and her strange, loving, supportive, accepting family, I give you a gallery of ten of Shiloh’s most tomboyish looks.
Be yourself today! Do it for Shiloh.
