Our avant-garde Lord and Savior Jaden Smith has landed an ad campaign with Louis Vuitton that features him in women’s clothing.


Vuitton’s creative director Nicholas Ghesquiére announced Jaden as the new face of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection in an Instagram post on Saturday, writing:

“Happy to introduce Jaden Smith @christiaingrey in the new SS16 @louisvuitton ad Campaign photographed by Bruce Weber.”

Jaden has worn a dress or two before quite boldly (he likes “super drapey things”), so this is nothing new—but it’s certainly a good look for fashion and a milestone for famous black kids.

A wise man once said, “I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things.”

That man was Jaden Smith.

Whatever, I’m here for it. I appreciate Willow and Jaden and their “weirdness”. I appreciate folks in the limelight who show the multiplicity of Blackness. We will have little Black kids who see themselves as weird/different/eccentric, who don’t fit their peers idea of what it means to be Black (and yes, this even happens within our own communities). I think having large pop culture figures who these kids can relate to is good for them and good for others to begin to understand there is no one way or right way to be Black.

So I’m here for weird/carefree Black folk. Shoutout to Willow, Jaden, Amandla and all the non-famous Black kids and adults who are just doing their own thing and not letting other people’s criticisms define them.
