Jaden Smith attends the Louis Vuitton fall 2016 show as part of Paris Fashion Week in Paris, France.
These kids are getting quite the PR push lately. And the weird part is, we don’t even mind. But it’s early days on their respective poledances – Jaden is not only modeling womenswear for LV, but has a part in an upcoming buzz-heavy Baz Luhrman-directed Netflix series and Willow is the latest Chanel Ambassador . Check back in with us in a week or two to see if we’re feeling as generous about them; possibly tomorrow or the next day, given how ambitious this PR plan seems to be.
But for now, we’ve gotta say…
We kind of love what both of the Smith progeny are bringing to the style table at the moment. Whatever else you might say about their pretensions and privilege, their style choices are of-the-next-moment modern. Even more notable, they’re each chipping away at gender and racial norms – all before their respective 18th birthdays. Yeah, their social media accounts offer much to roll your eyes at (which makes them no different from 98% of teenagers), but the way they’re using their fame and privilege is at least noteworthy. We wonder how much of that is mom and dad and how much of that is them.
