It seems like just yesterday that Brangelina were firmly ensconced at a compound in Swakopmund, Namibia, where Jolie gave birth to Shiloh and did her best to hide her growing family from the paparazzi. In a bid to make pictures of the newborn worthless to eager paparazzi, Pitt and Jolie sold pictures of Shiloh — for a record $4.1 million — to People magazine, who published the images. In the U.K., Hello magazine paid an additional $3.5 million for the pics, but all proceeds from both sales were donated to charity.
Altough less than a decade old, Shiloh already has her own style which mom Angelina Jolie describes as “tom boy” and has drawn comparisons to another high-profile kid, Suri Cruise — who is usually spotted out and about in dresses.
In 2010, Jolie defended Shiloh’s style:
“I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making,” said Jolie. “And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting… Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth. Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go.”
