Jaden Smith attends the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1, 2017 in New York City. 

When you hear the name Jaden Smith, a few things come to mind, including his boundary-pushing, gender-fluid style and flair for the absurd.

For the Met Gala 2017, which celebrates the museum’s Costume Institute exhibition “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” the 18-year-old donned a sleek Louis Vuitton suit and heeled boots. He also accessorized with thick gold chains, a golden grill and a handful of his recently chopped dreadlocks.

Twitter definitely had a few things to say about the unexpected  fashion statement.
