Angelina Jolie is a style icon to millions of young women around the globe, but photographed earlier this week with her children in Japan it looks like daughter Shiloh, 4, may be taking her fashion tips more from dad, actor Brad Pitt, than mom.
She was seen sporting a short 'do, together with khakis and a polo, while arriving at Tokyo's Narita Airport, where mom Angelina stopped on the first leg of an Asian tour to promote her new spy thriller "Salt."
Little Shiloh seemed very at ease, happily holding her mom's hand and breezing through the airport, along with older brothers Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, and big sister Zahara, 5.
Shiloh's "tomboy chic" style seems to be her new preferred look -- quite different from the pretty girlish dresses we have seen her photographed in in the past. She seemed oblivious to the shots the paparazzi wanted to have of her showing off her boyish look.
While the "copy cat" look she has of Brad when he was younger has many people weighing in on the blue-eyed beauty's penchant for pants, Angelina is taking it all in stride and says she loves her daughter's self-expression.
"I think she is fascinating the choices she is making," the 35-year-old actress told Reuters recently. "And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is bad parenting."
It may be, however, that Shiloh does take some of her fashion cues from mom after all. Jolie recently acknowledged that she surprised her son Maddox with her disguise as a male naval intelligence officer when he visited her on set for "Salt." He shook hands with her, not knowing the "man" he met was his mother, until she came clean and said, "Honey, it's mommy!" before promptly peeling off the fake face amidst much laughter from everyone on set!
