Jaden Smith rocks a skirt in new Louis Vuitton campaign
Only four days into 2016, Jaden Smith — actor, musician, and fashionista — is already proving it’s his year by landing a Louis Vuitton ad campaign that features him in women’s clothing.
In a move that totally shatters fashion boundaries, Louis Vuitton creative director Nicholas Ghesquiere recently took to Instagram to announce the ad campaign for the company’s spring/summer 2016 collections, and yep, 17-year-old Jaden is the new face of Louis Vuitton, because there’s honestly nothing Jaden can’t do.
“Happy to introduce Jaden Smith @christiaingrey in the new SS16 @louisvuitton ad Campaign photographed by Bruce Weber,” Ghesquiere wrote in the caption of the shot that features Jaden strutting his stuff in womenswear — specifically, a skirt, fringed top, and moto jacket. He looks amazing, obvs.
Jaden has made his passion for eclectic fashion clear in the past, like the time he wore a dress to prom and a Batman suit to Kim and Kanye’s wedding. He started wearing all back when he was a young teen, only to let his fashion choices evolve from there. And a few years ago, he started his own clothing and lifestyle brand, MSFTSrep.
Back in April of 2015, a source told Hollywood Life, “Jaden is a very experimental dresser, he’s always been a fashionista at heart.”
“I’m just expressing how I feel inside, which is really no particular way because every day it changes how I feel about the world and myself, but I like wearing super drapey things so I can feel as though I’m a super hero, but don’t have to necessarily wear super hero costumes every day,” he told GQ back in June.
We’re honestly in love with this choice and can’t wait to see Jaden totally KILL it in the fashion world. After all, Jaden’s known for breaking the norm — what better choice than him?
