Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett-Smith is one of those women who only seems to get better with time. We loved her native Baltimore-inspired style on A Different World back in the early '90s, and her array of hairdos as she graced the screen in different projects (remember the box braids she wore in The Nutty Professor, or the platinum crop she rocked in Woo—way before anyone heard of Amber Rose?). We also can't forget the gutsy, out the box style she matched with her rock group, Wicked Wisdom, before they dismantled.

At 39, her style is more impeccable than ever, packing a huge punch on her tiny 5’1” frame—or around 5’6' if you factor in the beautiful, sky rocketing heels she's known to wear (we still want those Nicolas Kirkwood for Rodarte pumps she wore the last time she visited us on 106 & Park). While she’s currently back for another season on TNT’s Hawthorne playing a tough-as-nails nurse, her style has evolved into feminine pieces that incorporate bold jewel tones and statement making accessories. Her outfits, usually a trendy twist on classic staples, pair perfectly with the dapper style of her husband, Will, and have inspired the fashion of her rising stars Jaden and Willow. Jada also commands her own shine with ensembles that inspire her fans to be that much more dashing.
