"I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so," he told GQ.

Jaden Smith is here to save the day -- or at least he was ready to at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding.

Smith -- known for his unusual style of wearing dresses for shirts -- was named one of GQ’s 20 Most Stylish Men Alive. He made a statement at his prom, wearing a black-and-white outfit that included a skirt, and at Kimye’s wedding in September, he showed up in a white Batman suit.

“I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom, which was fun,” Smith told GQ, “but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so.”

The young rapper told the magazine his style icons are Batman, Robin, Superman and Kanye West. At a young age he called himself the “king of animal print,” but now Smith said he prefers to wear black and draped clothing so he can feel like a superhero.

Smith continues to promote his MSFTSrep clothing line on Instagram and Twitter. His latest music project, Beast Mode, consisted of three tracks released in February.
