Wild Willow!

Willow Smith is stirring up controversy once again in a new photo she posted via Instagram on Thursday, Jan. 22. In the snapshot, the 14-year-old appears topless as she glares into the camera with her arms above her head — but there's a catch!

The daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, in actuality, only appears to go naked. Instead of baring all, the young star stands proudly in a colorful long-sleeve top that depicts a woman's nipples and naked body. 

"#Vfiles #willowsmith," Smith captioned. The "Whip My Hair" singer also added a touch of glossy lipstick and bright yellow eye shadow.

Smith has been at the center of social media outrage before. Back in May 2014, at age 13, she lounged in bed with a shirtless, grown man: her pal, actor Moises Arias, 20.

Despite the outcry, her famous mom Pinkett Smith defended the risque black-and-white shot on numerous occasions. "Here's the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," she told TMZ cameraman that same month. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You're acting like covert pedophiles and that's not cool."

She added to Net-a-Porter: "Just don't pollute something that's not dirty…I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves."
