Like a rock (chick)! Jada Pinkett Smith walked off the pesky chatter over her megastar husband Will Smith's alleged fling with a carefree attitude at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday, Nov. 24, sporting a very unique hairstyle and rocker chic look.

The 42-year-old Hawthorne star made an impressive entrance in thigh-high, black, leather boots with studded chains by Chanel, and a scoop-neck black tank top that showed a peek of her bra as she went through airport security. She topped her daring look with a long, black leather coat and multi-chain gold cross necklace — atop her head, was a nest of braids, elegantly piled and pushed back into a bun, while the sides of her head were still shaved.

Pinkett Smith buzzed her tresses back in early October, flaunting her beauty versatility at subsequent events including the Make Equality Reality event on Nov. 4 and her stepson Trey's 21st birthday bash in Last Vegas on Nov. 10.

The look at LAX, however, was not as shocking given Pinkett Smith's rocker roots: Will Smith's wife is the lead singer in a metal band that she personally formed in 2002. Formerly called Wicked Wisdom, the six-member troupe (including Pinkett Smith) has recently transitioned into its new name — Wicked Evolution.

While the star went rocker on Sunday at LAX, she was joined by her daughter Willow, 13, who went the more comfortable route in a hoodie, jeans and chucks. The mother of two (including 15-year-old Jaden), meanwhile, took to her Facebook that same day to share a heartfelt message on her personal page called "Ride or die!" discussing her values and loved ones: "I woke up this morning feeling deeply grateful for my journey on the streets of Baltimore city," she wrote. "There is one law I learned there that has been the center of my values ever since… ride or die. At the end of the day… I'm a chick from Baltimore who will always ride or die for what I love most… #1 being… my family."
