Jaden Smith, 17-year-old son of American actor Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is modeling ladies skirts as the New Face of Louis Vuitton's Womenswear and this is not funny!
He looks more like he is wearing a Scottish kilt most popular in Scottish Highlands since the 16th century and still a cultural trend for special occasions.
I don't see this as a transgender publicity stunt, because boys and men wearing skirts is nothing new since Jews, Romans, Egyptians, Albanians, Anglo-Saxons and Normans, Asians, Arabs and African have worn skirts in the evolution of fashion over the centuries until trousers became the uniform for boys and men.
David Hall promoted men wearing skirts in the 1970s as documented on Wikipedia.
Other male celebrities have worn skirts and have been endorsed by famous fashion designers, including Jean-Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, Kenzo, Rei Kawakubo, Marc Jacobs and Yohji Yamamoto.
According to Wikipedia, in June 2013, Swedish train drivers won the right to wear skirts in the summer when their cabins can reach 35 °C (95 °F) and in July 2013, parents supported boys wearing skirts at Gowerton Comprehensive School in Wales.
So, if guys are cool with wearing skirts as ladies have been rocking trousers with us, Louis Vuitton should not label this campaign only for their Womenswear and let Jaden Smith not be labelled a transgender model.
