Tallulah Willis: Mom Demi Moore Taught Me to Love My Body

04/12/2012 at 03:30 PM ET

When Tallulah Willis needs a fashion fix, she just calls on her mother, Demi Moore. “My mom has a warehouse of vintage clothes that she’s collected,” the college student tells StyleLikeU.com. “Every time we go back [home] to Idaho we grab a little bit more. It’s like your own personal vintage store.”

Showing off her favorite fashion finds in a video for the site (big sis Scout did her own video for them last year), Willis recalls the moments when she first got into clothes.

“I remember every day I would be like, ‘Scout, dress me. Put an outfit on me,'” she shares. “She’d dress me in these outfits and I would look ridiculous because they would be 10 sizes too big, but I didn’t care. From them on, dressing just because something I appreciated.”

She also appreciated her parents’ support; according to Willis, mom Moore “was very much like, ‘Love your body, love yourself, run around naked.’ Whatever we wanted to do, it was very accepting,” she says.

Dad Bruce had a similar mindset; Willis says he believed that “whatever you want to do, we love it.” However, it did take a little while for him to let go. “They’re a lot more protective; they want to keep me the baby for as long as possible,” she shares.

But it seems like the teen is doing just fine. Ruminating on friends who’ve battled eating disorders — “especially before Coachella,” she shares — she says she feels good about herself, proudly stating, “I don’t have to be insecure to fit in.”

she looks SO much like her mom, with her dad’s eye color…pretty girl and wholesome, grounded. Demi and Bruce must be proud.

I think the video is adorable. She is very down to earth, very well-mannered and I can appreciate how she likes to thrift shop. Tip for you Tallulah, you can make the boots fit better by drenching them with water and putting a shoe horn in them to stretch them to your size by letting them dry completely or wear them wet until they dry but that can cause blisters. This only works for going up or down one to one and a half sizes. Good luck and great video!

It amazes me that someone can talk and talk and talk and talk and not say anything.

What a beautiful, lovely girl – inside and out! I think it’s really brave to put a video together like this and I applaud her intelligence and sincerity. Obviously she has lovely parents. And such an adorable name – love that!
