Jaden dons a skirt and fringed top in the fashion line's Spring 2016 campaign and poses alongside models Sarah Brannon, Rianne Van Rompaey, and Jean Campbell. Nicolas Ghesquière, creative director of Louis Vuitton, was first to share the photos, writing, “Happy to introduce Jaden Smith.”

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son has never been shy about wanting to change the way society thinks about gender -- or about his fashion choices. Remember when he wore a Batman suit to prom?

Those two sides of his style have more in common than you would think. “I’m just expressing how I feel inside, which is really no particular way because everyday it changes,” Jaden told GQ. “I like wearing super drapey things so I can feel as though I’m a super hero, but don’t have to necessarily wear super hero costumes everyday.”

Jaden previously tweeted, “That Moment When Your Wearing A Dress With No Pants And You Swerve Way To Hard.” He also posted this selfie on Instagram, captioning it, “Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean ‘Clothes’"

"Jaden, because we're both artists, we decided a long time ago that it's sort of better to flow with what people are naturally," Will explained of how his son expresses himself. Find out what else the famous father had to say:
