Jaden Smith has been rocking it in the fashion scene for some time now, and he’s certainly no stranger to dresses and skirts. Well, it seems that Louis Vuitton has caught on to his stylishness, as well as his penchant for “super drapey things” by including him in their new Spring/Summer ’16 ad campaign for this season’s women’s fashions!Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicholas Ghesquiére announced Smith’s participation via Instagram this weekend.
I am digging this Smith’s style and fearlessness. Also, the fact that he embraces an androgynous look in life. It goes a long way not only toward relating the message that gender is a construct that is up for being fucked with to a wider audience, but it also goes a long way toward showing men of color – whose communities are often harder on them for breaking gender roles – that femininity is nothing to be ashamed of or threatened by.
Smith’s barrier-breaking sartorial choices have been buzzed about since he was first seen rocking a dress back in April. He has since worn a dress to prom, as well as a Batman costume to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding. In an interview with GQ, Smith discussed the motivations behind his fashion choices, marking them as a form of expression.
“I’m just expressing how I feel inside, which is really no particular way because everyday 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 everyday,”.What do you think of Smith’s look and participation in this campaign?
