Jaden Smith wore Louis Vuitton and carried his dreads at the Met Gala: weird or fun?

Jaden Smith is one of the young faces of Louis Vuitton womenswear (that’s not a typo) so he was dressed in LV at the Met Gala. His all black outfit is decent but nondescript. Jaden chopped off his dreadlocks (or his dad did) almost a month ago and so he saved them and carried them around with him, lest people not recognize him I guess. He also wore a gold grill, which was overkill. With his dreads as accessories he really didn’t need to look like a comically inept villain in a bad kids’ movie.

Jennifer Connelly slayed in this beaded tweed LV dress, but like Jaden’s outfit it really does not fit the theme. This would have been amazing if the theme was Burberry, to steal a line from Kaiser. I love her boots.



Riley Keough had on a black and red sequin LV dress with graphic stripes and chains draped across the left shoulder. This is more LV than Kawakubo but they tried somewhat. Her styling is so damn pretty. I really like how her hair is strategically messy.


Sophie Turner got the worst LV gown, this white and nude thing with ruffles and a really confusing print. I just feel bad for her. It’s like someone laid one of those sexy lingerie aprons on top of a white and silver sequin gown.

    He’s such a try hard.

    • Jen says:

      Weird, fun or just obnoxious.

    • Megan says:

      I actually find him quite silly and charming, but, I agree, the dead hair needs to go.

    • Amanda DG says:

      I’ve found him to be obnoxious ever since Will and Jada tried to make him a movie star.

    • Pandy says:

      Ew! The grill. The dreads. Why is he there again?? Jennifer “just” pulls it off but really, not liking any of these looks. Riley does have a great smile.

    • Aaron says:

      He isn’t any different then the Jenners or the Baldwins or the Hadids.
      He has no talent at all and neither does his sister. If Will Smith wasn’t a big movie star, where would this kid be? He would be struggling in Hollywood trying to land roles. He isn’t even good looking either, so thats another thing he would have trouble with.

  2. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Riley has a nice smile. That’s all I got for her.

    Sophie’s is not that bad.

    Jaden had a missed opportunity to wear a skirt. Where is his sister?

  3. Lynnie says:

    Idk why he decided to bring his dreads and the grill is overkill, but I like the rest of his outfit. And the third picture of him is just so carefree lol

    • Cherise says:

      The dreads were probably some kind of performance art about his old self. I like his outfit too and he has a cute face.

      Just to add I think this kid just gets an inordinately unfair ride. He isnt harming anyone unlike some, or pushing intolerance unlike others, he is just being himself and living his life aloud despite the hate. I mean once the teenage black son of one of the most successful action movie stars ever decides to model womens wear, I can only admire that courage. Money or no money, it takes a lot to flout gender convention so publicly.

      • sanders says:

        Agreed Cherise. I have no strong feelings about will or jada, not a fan or a hater.
        I don’t get why this young black man gets all the put downs either. I’m aware his interviews are a bit out there but he is a cutie with a unique sense of style.
        He is consistently non conformist. Within the pretense and hype of hollywood, I think he is being authentic. I’m always happy to see nonconformists because they create an environment for the rest of us to let go too.

      • Aaron says:

        And how did he even get that gig? Nepotism!

  4. Mike says:

    I have zero clues about high fashion. I think Sophie looks sexy in her outfit though

  5. KatM says:

    Riley Keough looks great. Atleast she tried. Carrying your hair around? Um, NO.

  6. Lizzie says:

    Jennifer Connelly looks beautiful as always but she could have really worked the theme better. She has worn more on theme dresses to movie premieres when she worked with Ghesquière at Balenciaga. I don’t get why he didn’t just tweak the shirt or shoulders on this dress a little for her to be closer to theme. Still pretty though.

    I look at the background of these pics wondering which one could be “Andrea” with the job “a million girls would die to have.”

  9. chaine says:

    I like Jennifer’s look from the waist up, especially the styling with those earrings. The skirt part is all wrong–to me it should be floor length and very fitted, not a girly flippy miniskirt. And the flippy miniskirt look is jarring on her–she is in her mid-40’s, plus her legs are too freakin’ tiny for it to work.

  10. detritus says:

    Nope, the flesh coloured holes on Sophie’s dress give me deep seated creeps.
    Big nope.

    the other girls were meh, and Jaden should make his dreads into a purse, or other accessory, if he wants to carry them around.

  11. QQ says:

    I Just am Fully on Board with Loving Jaden at this point, His Locs-man flare included, I’m actually IN

    Riley looks great

  12. Beth says:

    Very weird. When I get my hair cut, it’s on the floor until the hairdresser puts it in the trash. I don’t keep it to carry around! Yuck

  13. Rosie says:

    Get rid of the metal vampire fangs, you look like an idiot. Just because your parebts buy you fame doesnt mean you are anything important.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Everytime I look at Jaden, I think, you should be in school.

    • jwoolman says:

      Probably too late for school, he seems to lack basic skills thanks to the Scientology approach to education. But he just might make it as an eccentric rich model. He seems to be a kind person, and that goes a long way. He’ll be depending on his parents to smooth the way for him for quite a while, though. He’s a terrible actor, I hope he stops trying to do that.

  15. Marie-France says:

    Jaden is a bit try hard, but he has a gorgeous face.

  16. Aysla says:

    Jaden is beautiful. I love everything about this look, minus the definite overkill grill. It’s not on theme, but he looks great. I’m also here for the performance art aspect of his old dreads.

  17. Goobie says:

    Rich Entitled Clueless Empty

  18. Neens says:

    Scientology really messed up Will Smith and his family.

  19. matahari says:

    He’s nasty and tacky AF

  20. bella says:

    A big resounding no and all of them!

  21. Mei says:

    Jennifer Connelly is the spitting image of Allison Williams at the end of Get Out, they could be twins!

    I think Jaden is actually being very clever with his hair. The theme is around deconstructed fashion right? He’s actually one of the most on-theme, it’s taking it to a whole new level.
