Jaden Smith poses in a dress in the early shots from Louis Vuitton's spring/summer 2016 ad campaign.

Jaden Smith is taking his talents to the fashion world, and for latest gig, he's been hired by Louis Vuitton to model for the French fashion house's spring/summer 2016 ad campaign. Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director for Louis Vuitton's women's collections, has shared a couple of shots from the campaign, and indeed, the photos show Smith posing in women's clothing. 

Of course, the idea of having Smith star in the new campaign is to portray fashion as art that need not be attached to any traditional gender roles, but it was certainly bold for Louis Vuitton to hire a 17-year-old and one with the name recognition of Smith. 

This is not the first time Smith has been spotted in a dress, so perhaps it's not surprising he isn't sporting menswear for the biggest moment of his modeling career.
