Jaden Smith Is the Star of Louis Vuitton’s SS16 Womenswear Campaign


The Smith kids might not have turned themselves into Top 40 superstars or box office goldmines, but they sure have found a way to subvert their parents’ celebrity by infiltrating the art world in unexpected ways. First, Willow released a bizarre, inconsistent, and great album late last year. Now, Jaden has taken his love for fashion and focused it commercially, landing as the face of Louis Vuitton’s SS16 Campaign — for womenswear.

As Vibe reports, Louis Vuitton Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière announced Smith’s inclusion via Instagram, in photos shot by Bruce Weber.

This isn’t really a surprise, seeing as Smith has been seen wearing everything from dresses to Batman costumes. It’s also become kind of the norm for women to be seen in menswear shows — or for fashion shows to eliminate the gender distinction altogether — so Jaden’s inclusion isn’t totally surprising in that regard, either.
