Jaden Smith's New Fashion Modeling Gig Might Surprise You (Photos)


Louis Vuitton has officially affirmed that gender fluidity is here to stay.

Echoing the resounding non-gendered sentiment of celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Ruby Rose, the fashion house goes bold for its Spring/Summer 2016 womenswear campaign.

The ads feature actor and Twitter poet laureate Jaden Smith wearing a skirt.

On January 3, the brand's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, unveiled a first look at the campaign on Instagram.

Smith, the son of Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, wears a fringe-accented top alongside models Sarah Brannon, Rianne Van Rompaey and Jean Campbell.

Now, if you've been paying any attention to the pyramid-building teen you're well aware this attire isn't outside of his comfort zone. Smith famously wore a dress to prom with Amandla Stenberg back in May and has been spotted in skirts several times.

While I'm a champion for both men and women being more experimental when it comes to fashion, women shouldn't have to compete with men over womenswear.

Is there no market in which women can shine without men tiptoeing into our territory? Was LV muse Liya Kebede unavailable?

Although men in dresses isn't a new phenomenon, it's the first time LV has promoted the idea.

Men draped in lady garments could potentially be more mainstream if fashion campaigns continue this wave.

If anyone's going to lead Generation Gender Fluid into this new norm, Jaden will.
