Shiloh’s Such a Tomboy!

She’s got a new Peter Pan ’do and doesn’t like to dress up like a girly-girl. Does Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s daughter secretly want to be a boy?

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

French women have always been admired for their fashion savvy, but on February 21, it was a tiny American in Paris who made headlines for her bold new look. Three-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt debuted a sporty cropped ’do as she shopped for clothes at a Bonpoint on the Rue de l’Université in the Left Bank with her dad, Brad Pitt, and big sis, Zahara.

While Shiloh certainly looked adorable with her chopped locks, her cut has been somewhat controversial. Many bloggers mistook the towheaded tot for her 19-month-old brother, Knox, when Brad, 46, and partner Angelina Jolie took her boating in Venice on February 18, and critics have complained that the ’do is a don’t for a little girl.

Still, Shiloh has proudly been a tomboy from the very start. In June 2006, the infant wore a blue Kingsley Pots & Pans tee for her very first cover shoot with People magazine. More recently she’s been spotted sporting camouflage pants, ties, fedoras, and an array of outfits in gray and black. According to Jolie-Pitt insiders, it’s Shiloh — not her famous parents — who determines which duds she’ll wear. A Bonpoint eyewitness tells People magazine that while 5-year-old Zahara opted for girlie pieces, “Shiloh only wanted items from the boys’ collection.”

That certainly comes as no surprise to Papa Pitt. “She only wants to be called John. John or Peter,” he told Oprah Winfrey last year. “So it’s a Peter Pan thing.”

While several celebrity websites have slammed Shiloh for emulating the wardrobe worn by her dad and her big brothers Maddox, 8, and Pax, 6, the truth is that she may simply be following in her gorgeous mom’s footsteps. “I wanted to be Indiana Jones when I was growing up,” Angie, 34, admits. “I was a real tomboy.”

And look at how nicely she turned out!

  1. GO SHILOH!! I love that her parents let her express herself unfettered by gender conformity.

    I’m one of those people who did and still DO harshly criticize the Cruise’s for letting Suri wear heels outside of dress up because that is simply dangerous for growing feet and sexualizing little girls. Pitt-Jolie however always make sure their kids are dressed appropriately for weather and for play and outside of that give them free reign, which is how it should be.

  2. 3 years old SHI didn’t pick her clothes out.. Ugly Brad&Angie pick her clothes for her..It ashame a beautiful baby girl wearing BOY clothes..GEE! UGLY BRAD & ANGIE SHI your daughter not your son..

  3. Shiloh may end up being straight or gay. It really doesn’t matter. What matters is that Shiloh is comfortable in what she wears. Brad and Angie are smart/wise parents to understand this… I applaud them.
