Jaden Smith is the new face of Louis Vuitton womenswear campaign, now we never usually see a male star model womenswear, so this is a big deal; you could say it’s a step forward in defeating the gender barrier in fashion.
Jaden Smith is quite a character, as some of us know. His dress sense is also rather bizzare in some ways; however the 17 year old is all about equal rights (if you can’t already tell from his Twitter account)
There was quite a reaction when the campaign first appeared, “A guy wearing women’s clothes, he must be gay” – I heard people say that very often, I was rather annoyed by these comments, I just thought to myself “why is it that it’s okay for women to dress in men’s clothes, if men can’t dress in women’s?” Over the years we’ve seen women dominate fashion and breaking the gender barrier by taking over the white shirt, leather jacket and jeans which was originally made for men, of course in this day and age it’s the norm, but we still get really awkward when we see men do it...
I personally think the Louis Vuitton campaign is great; I’m super excited to see what else is to come from Jaden himself and the brand.
