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.
I think Jaden Smith carrying his cut-off hair in his hands as an accessory wins the avant-garde prize of the #metgala night so far.
