Jaden Smith Challenges Masculinity Norms With Shirtless Skirt Photo

“Karate Kid” star recently signed on to model Louis Vuitton womenswear

Jaden Smith has once again challenged traditional views on masculinity with a new shirtless pose in a skirt.

The “Karate Kid” star posted the photo (below) on Instagram. “Just Come Here,” the caption reads along the picture of the teenager sporting blue nail polish and a flower behind his ear.

Jaden also found himself in the headlines recently when he joined the illustrious ranks of models chosen to represent Louis Vuitton — for their new women’s line.

Jaden, the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, appeared in two photos posted to the Instagram account of Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director for Louis Vuitton.

In both pictures, Jaden sports a black skirt and a mesh, fringed tank top. He appears alongside several female models in one of the photos.

In addition to modeling, 17-year-old Jaden has also had several high-profile acting roles, most notably in films starring his father. The two appeared together in “Pursuit of Happyness” and the box office bomb “After Earth.” Jaden also starred in the 2010 remake of “The Karate Kid,” which his father produced.

He will also appear in the upcoming Baz Luhrman Netflix series, “The Get Down,” about a rag-tag group of teenagers who run wild in the streets of the late-1970s Bronx.
