Jaden Smith – the 17-year-old son of actors and musicians Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith – is the newest face of Louis Vuitton.
He’s been hired by the French fashion house to model for the spring/summer 2016 womenswear campaign and Nicholas Ghesquiere, creative director for Louis Vuitton’s women’s collections, has now shared some preview shots from the campaign.
The young man is well known for his gender-neutral stance on clothing and made it onto GQ’s Most Stylish Men Alive list in 2015.
Some of his bold fashion choices have included wearing a skirt to his high school ball and wearing an outrageous white Batman suit to Kimye’s wedding.

In an interview with GQ, Smith said:
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. I like wearing super drapey things so I can feel as though I’m a superhero, but don’t have to necessarily wear superhero costumes everyday.
The gender-fluid ad campaign is basically just an extension of Smith’s everyday wardrobe and, to be honest, both him and the photographs look great – mind you, he should look good in £600 clothes!
