Style Triple Shot: Jada Pinkett Smith in Guy Laroche, Chloé and Balmain

Posted on October 01, 2015

Now we know why she was making such a show of getting on that plane the other day. Because Miss Lady needed to let the world know that she was jetting out to the Paris shows. This woman knows how the game is played. That highly impractical flying outfit? That was her way of saying “Pack your cameras, boys and girls. I’m stepping out.”

And then she hit Paris and followed it up with a succession of attention-getting looks. Nothing but respect.

But we’re still going to judge her.

You know what? We had an entire paragraph outlining why we think this doesn’t work, then we looked at her again and said “Fuck it” and trashed the whole thing. Whatever quibbles we have doesn’t matter. For pure power and head-turning factor, this really can’t be beat. It’s unique and it suits her.

What’s most notable about this look is how conventional it is compared to some of her other looks this week. It appears that she’s playing a succession of roles (a maneuver we can’t applaud enough when it comes to attention-seeking through fashion) and this one would seem to be “Fashion Editor Guest Star Role on Empire.”

Works for us.

This, on the other hand, does not work for us.

But hey, we get it. You definitely still have it, Lady. And it is Paris Fashion Week after all. It’s not out of place to be sporting a look like this. We just hope there was a little towel or something in your gift bag so you could put it on your seat before sitting down.
