Jaden Smith is the New Face of Louis Vuitton!

Hello, everyone. First of all, happy new year! 
Secondly, I want to share some exciting news with you if you haven't heard about it already. Jaden Smith, son of actor Will Smith, is going to be one of the new faces of Louis Vuitton! To be exact, he's going to be part of the new womenswear campaign. I'm very much out of the fashion loop, I do my reviews of red carpet outfits at award shows but that's very much it. I appreciate fashion but I probably couldn't tell you a thing about it.

This is clearly a great publicity stunt for Louis Vuitton but who cares? It's working because it's got everybody talking about it both positively and negatively. Many thought Louis Vuitton exclusively sold handbags but who knew they were actually selling women's clothing for men all this time? And who better than Jaden Smith, who has seemed to be gender neutral much of his teenage life, to be the face of this campaign?

The fashion house's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, announced the new campaign on Instagram with a first look at the new photo shoot by Bruce Weber:

Jaden Smith "represents a generation that has assimilated the codes of true freedom, one that is free of manifestoes and questions about gender". I, for one, LOVE this. To me, he just looks like a normal kid wearing women's clothes, not necessarily a man in transition. And, damn, doesn't he look good? He doesn't look like a girl in them either, he just looks like a guy who is wearing obviously female clothes which works for me.

Let's get educational for a moment. For the people at the back who are complaining and saying that this is not 'normal'. Well, men wearing skirts is not a new thing at all. In some cultures, men wearing skirts has been occurring for a long time historically.

Here's some examples:

This is why I love this new campaign already. We have to give some love for Will and Jada Pinkett Smith as well for being so flexible and allowing their children to literally be whatever and whoever they want to be while they're young.

I couldn't put it better myself.

I'd love to hear your thoughts about this new campaign, do you like it or hate it?
All opinions are welcome!
Thankyou for reading.

  2. It is weird at America and Europe But In Bangladesh, India, Sri-Lanka, Mayanmar, Japan is common. Bangladesh, India, Srilanka, Mayanmar called this Lungi. You find Lungi in Sir Waltman's poem.

  9. Jaden slightly annoys me as a person, but I don't have a problem with this campaign. It's definitely a publicity stunt but is shaking things up. I like the pictures!

  18. I heard that Jaden would be the new face, and I absolutely love it! I think that gender shouldn't decide what kind of clothes you can wear. Love this post! :)
