Apparently actress and philanthropist Angelina Jolie must be feeling the heat from critics of her 4-year-old daughter's tomboy style.
As Shiloh makes more public appearances wearing hand picked boy's polo shirts and khaki pants, her mother is spending more time defending the little girl's style.
In an interview with British mag Stylist, Angelina said:
"It's not my choice. I have a very strong willed four-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is."
"I think children should wear what they want and express themselves, so we give them different options of things."
Angelina used her adopted 5-year-old daughter, Zahara, as an example: "Zahara dresses very much like a girl, very pink and flowery, very feminine."
On the topic of Shiloh's boyish pixie haircut, Angie said:
"Shiloh cried and said, 'Please cut my hair off, I don't want to have long hair.' I'm not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should. I want to do what's in her head and what's in her heart is to dress like that. I think it's beautiful."
