Jaden Smith attends the premiere of “The Get Down” at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in The Bronx, New York.
Well, it’s definitely a look. You can’t take that away from him.
We appreciate both the Smith kids for their style, which strikes us as very modern and borderline transgressive in a lot of ways. Jaden has a predilection for gender-bending in his style choices (in that he chooses womenswear on the regular), but this strikes us more in the realm of a Michael Jackson update. Even if it wasn’t intentional on Jaden’s part, you can see the roots of the MJ look – the white undershirt and weirdly proportioned pants, the heavily beaded jacket, the attention-grabbing socks.
Personally, we think the hiding of the hands is kind of irritating and the socks are too distracting and discordant. But we’re hopelessly old in his eyes so our opinion on this issue doesn’t – and shouldn’t – matter a bit to him. It’s a pretty great look all around.
We know what we’re doing this weekend. Can’t WAIT to see this.
