What's Up With Shiloh Dressing Like A Boy? Angelina Jolie Finally Weighs In

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter, Shiloh, is absolutely adorable. And she’s not just cute, she’s also really pretty, which is probably why so many people are confused when they see her walking around in dark colored jeans, sneakers and tees rather than girly dresses and skirts. We’ve all probably innocently wondered at one point or another why Angelina, with all the money in the world, would dress her daughter so…plainly and now has her answer:

“Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish…I think she is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not.”

As a mom, I definitely agree with Angie. Her daughter chooses to wear black, mine choose to wear T-shirts and Payless sneakers emblazoned with Dora the Explorer and other Disney characters. It’s maybe not what I would have chosen for her, but if that’s what she likes and it makes her happy, who cares.

What do you think? Do you let your child choose his/her own clothes or do you force them to wear what you want?
