Jaden Smith Named Week's Best Dressed

Jaden Smith has been named the best dressed man of the week according to Jobs and Hire. Jaden, the 17-year-old son of Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith has repeatedly and unapologetically announced that he's decided to "immerse himself in fashion." He wasn't kidding, and Jaden Smith wasn't just talking about the world of traditionally men's fashion, either.

Jaden Smith is a notorious gender-bender. Just this week, the teenage Smith made headlines when he went to the beach in somewhat feminine attire; a lady-like denim romper. Jaden wore the ensemble, often called "overalls" in the world of male fashion, without the benefit of an undershirt or t-shirt, resulting in a nip-slip that didn't seem to embarrass Smith at all.

Jaden Smith's early career was that of a traditional "legacy" child star, following in the footsteps of his super-famous and successful parents. It didn't take long, however, for Jaden Smith to begin to make his own mark on Hollywood. While he'd had some commercial success in films, Jaden is currently best known as a fashion icon.

He's made his mark on the fashion industry of the Hollywood elite through his "gender fluid" style. Jaden Smith has no qualms going to prom in a skirt or becoming the face of a woman's fashion line.

As Jaden has said in the past, "I don't see man clothes and woman clothes."

Indeed, Jaden Smith has been very vocal in his belief that "feminine" and "masculine" are not defined by attire. Skirts, pants, heels, flats, they have nothing to do with biological gender or gender identity, according to Smith. Rather, style is personal and androgynous. Or it should be.

In a nutshell, Smith is breaking boundaries in both gender identity and the fashion industries.

Not too bad for a 17-year-old.

And even in pants, Jaden Smith was clearly the face of Louis Vuitton's women's clothing. Because, to Jaden, women's clothing and men's clothing are defined by what makes you comfortable or what makes you afraid.

No matter what he wears, Jaden Smith pulls it off.

"I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms. I feel like people don't really get it. I'm not saying that I get it."

What do you think? Does Jaden deserve props for his gender neutral/fluid fashion style? Is he deserving of the title "Best Dressed Man of the Week?" Would you let your son have the fashion freedom afforded to Jaden Smith?
