Jaden Smith is no stranger to challenging the norms of society. He’s worn dresses and skirts before, and it caused quite an uproar in the media. People were shocked, some were outraged, but a lot of people cheered him on. He spoke out about his opinions on fashion. He’s a big believer in wearing whatever you want as long as you feel comfortable in it. He doesn’t believe in the gender divide when it comes to fashion. If he wears a dress or a skirt, that doesn’t mean he’s wearing “girl’s clothes”, he’s wearing clothes, and that’s it. Don’t try to define him.
This spring, Jaden is taking his fashion statements to a whole new level. He’s going to be the face of Louis Vuitton’s women’s collection. Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s creative director has already shared some pictures on his Instagram. In the spring campaign’s preview pictures, Jaden can be seen wearing his hair up, dressed in a leather jacket and an embellished skirt, standing alongside the female models. Say what you want, but Jaden is rocking that look and looks absolutely stunning.

Androgynous fashion has become quite popular recently. Many brands started having fashion campaigns that aren’t targeted at a certain gender, instead trying to appeal to everyone by featuring gender-fluid collections; Marimacho and Wildfang are good examples of this. Menswear collections have started featuring female models too, like Craig Green and Alessandro. Acne Studios had male models wearing high heels in their spring collection. Huge fashion brands like Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Burberry, and Gucci all featured female models on the runway for their menswear collections.
Louis Vuitton is a fashion giant and the fact that they chose to incorporate this into their campaign is a huge step in fashion. So is gender conformity on it’s way out? Is androgynous fashion and gender fluidity the way of the future? Let us know what you think in the comments.
