Jaden Smith is the son of well-known actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Now 17-years-old, he is all grown up and looking fine, just like his parents. Jaden Smith has also been experimenting with his fashion sense and has been seen around in a number of intriguing outfits. This is in part because he has been discovered by Louis Vuitton and has become the new face of Vuitton’s women’s wear collection. The Guardian reports that Smith is throwing away gender stereotypes as he models a skirt.
Vuitton himself posted a fabulous photo of Jaden Smith in his fashionable outfit on Instagram.
This isn’t the first time Smith has been seen wearing a skirt. He went to his prom wearing a black shirt and blazer and a white skirt.

Aside from rocking the gender-free world, Jaden Smith has been giving back to the community this holiday season. Hollywood Life reports that Smith personally delivered clothing to a non-profit organization called Casa Pacifica, which is a safe house for families and children. He surprised the kids at Casa Pacifica by showing up to personally hand out the holiday cheer and Casa Pacifica tweeted the event.

Of course, Jaden Smith and his sister, Willow, have been raised to give back to the community. Their mother, Jada, once told Parents that giving back is a must in their family.
“Oh, they have to! That’s part of what we do as a family: Giving back is a must. At least once every three months, the kids visit an orphanage or a homeless shelter or a nursing home and sit down with the families and children. My kids are very willing to give things away because they understand that they have such abundance; they don’t have to hoard. They choose things they’ve outgrown or have lost interest in and we collect them to donate to others. That’s just part of our lifestyle. We also have a huge community of extended family and friends, so our home and our resources are used by a lot of people.”
Clearly, Jaden Smith got the message loud and clear, even as he continues to stun and impress the world. Vanity Fair reports that early in December, 2015, he tweeted his love for the movie The Age of Adaline, ranking it number two, only beat out by Twilight.

Perhaps Jaden Smith will provide insight into his way of thinking in the collection of essays he is currently working on. Us Weekly reported in early December that a friend of Smith’s spoke about the essays he is writing.
“Jaden sees himself as a modern-day prophet and is working on a collection of essays. They’re new takes on string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical.”
The insider also divulged that Jaden Smith is getting help from beyond this world as he writes.
“Jaden thinks he has spiritual ties to people in other dimensions and galaxies, and they are helping him write.”
It seems that Jaden Smith is not concerned if people think he’s crazy. In an interview with GQ he spoke of himself in relation to Galileo.
“It’s fun, bro. That’s what a lot of people don’t realize. It’s fun. It’s so much fun. It’s the best thing. People think you’re crazy — I feel like it’s an honor, actually, for people to think I’m crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I’m saying? I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo.”
Those are some deep thoughts, Jaden Smith.
