(Newser) – Jaden Smith's new gig: modeling Louis Vuitton womenswear. The 17-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith appears in a new modeling campaign wearing a skirt, fringed top, and leather jacket alongside three other models, all female. As Business Insider reports, Jaden is a longtime advocate of "genderless clothing" and has worn skirts before. FastCo Create says the whole thing feels right: "Fashion models, especially female models, tend toward androgyny. The body types draped in the latest designs are usually light on curves, and are almost uniformly tall and slender—you might even say the ideal female fashion silhouette were that of a teenage boy."
