Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been very public with their parenting strategies and letting their kids, Jaden and Willow, express themselves through fashion has always been a point of pride with them. His latest endeavor is his role in Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign (and yes, before you ask, this is different than their previously-released Final Fantasy campaign). The American actor and rapper has been photographed by Bruce Weber and rocks designs showed at the Paris Fashion Week, Yahoo reports.
Jaden pairs a metal-embroidered skirt with a fringed white top and a retro leather moto jacket, topping the look off with a pair of glove lets and loafers.
Jaden Smith wears what he wants-be it a caped Batman ensemble or a Louis Vuitton skirt. The 17-year-old was definitely making some pretty bold style choices seven months ago when he was attending his high school prom.
Jaden Smith has joined the illustrious ranks of models chosen to represent Louis Vuitton - for their new women's line. One follower tweeted, "Jaden smith wearing skirts is great, but if u call it "womenswear" that genders it. we're trying to break down barriers, not build them".
Jaden previously told the New York Times' T magazine: "I have a goal to be just the craziest person of all time".
