The 17-year-old son of Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is the new face of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2016 collections appearing in the ad with female models. ‘Happy to introduce Jaden Smith @christiaingrey in the new SS16 @louisvuitton ad campaign photographed by Bruce Weber,’ wrote Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicholas Ghesquiere on Instagram, where the ad campaign made its debut. It comes as no surprise to see Jaden Smith in a skirt. Smith’s gender breaking has been an on going topic since he was first seen rocking a dress back in April 2015. He has since worn a dress to prom, Batman costume to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding and in an interview with GQ, Jaden talked about his fashion choices, “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,”
Jaden wears a pleated studded skirt teamed with a crochet top, biker jacket and loafers from the collection, Jaden poses alongside three other models in a series of images for the campaign.
