Jaden Smith Doesn't Really Get Gender Norms

"I don’t see man clothes and woman clothes, I just see scared people and comfortable people."

Jaden Smith is really coming into his own as a fashion icon. The 17-year-old's already got a Louis Vuitton campaign under his belt, which is holding up a gorgeous skirt or dress. In the latest issue of GQ Style, Smith talks about just how unbothered he is by this whole gender divide thing:

"I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms. I feel like people don't really get it. I'm not saying that I get it, I'm just saying that I've never seen any distinction. I don't see man clothes and woman clothes, I just see scared people and comfortable people."

Smith's gender-defying taste in fashion is a statement equally personal and generational--a recent study found that only 44 percent of teens buy clothes specifically designed for their gender.

Also of note, Jaden sees his Chanel-clad little sis Willow as his female doppelganger, and vice versa:

"I'd say it's like full-on sibling brain connection. I'd say that she's definitely the female version of me, one hundred per cent, in every single way. And I'd say I'm the male version of her."

Meanwhile, how great is this generation of celeb kids? Between Lourdes Ciccone Leon serving more face than an open sandwich for Stella McCartney, Kaia Gerber giving her mom Cindy Crawford a runway run for her money on the cover of Vogue Paris, and the Smiths just living their best lives we're all in good hands.
