“All the rules in the world were made by someone no smarter than you. So make your own,” tweets Jaden Smith, brother to creative wunderkind Willow and son of Hollywood royalty. Working his magic over music, art, acting and modelling, the creative polymath channels his profound worldview into his introspective songs, like recent track “Scarface”, which defiantly chants “the government will not be killing me”. 

In addition to his unique online persona, the 17-year-old is known to rock a skirt or dress with enviable swag, making a case for a mode of dressing that does away with gender stereotypes. After causing a stir last year by wearing a mid-calf, monochrome gown to his school prom with date Amandla Stenberg, Smith was cast by Nicolas Ghesquière to appear in Louis Vuitton’s SS16 campaign, shot by legendary photographer Bruce Weber. Smith is seen rocking a embellished kilt and tailored moto jacket, refuting gender stereotypes and reaffirming his position as a dynamic style icon.

With a background in so many different industries, it’s hard to foresee which route Smith will ultimately take – but given his recent debut in the fashion world, his future seems promising.
