A then-seven-year-old Willow Smith steps out onto the red carpet in a frilly black frock cinched with a silver belt in support of her dad Will Smith’s film Hancock.
Nearly a year and a half later, Smith takes to the stage along with her entire family for the Nobel Peace Prize concert honoring recent prizewinner Barack Obama. Here, she wears a black-and-white evening gown that might be equally at home at the Oscars.

In a grey jumpsuit with a belted-on contrasting yellow shoulder, Willow Smith takes to the stage at the American Music Awards in 2010.

Sky-high loops of hair and statement gold-dusted combat boots aren’t even the half of Smith’s look for the 2011 BET Awards — she elevates her red-carpet-casual look, showing off a bright yellow tee emblazoned with the face of none other than the Fresh Prince.
The following year, an 11-year-old Smith goes classic once more for the BET Honors of 2012. Here, she wears a vintage canary-yellow gown paired with an Alexander McQueen clutch.
The same year’s BET Awards find her keeping it in the family with a tee from brother Jaden’s line, MSFTS, worn as a tunic, anchored by Smith’s trademark combat boots — here, a pair from Chanel.
