If Jaden Smith were writing the proverbial book on how to be a Cool Teen — which, let's be honest, he basically has — it would probably include some of the following tips: be a multi-hyphenate creative. Have famous parents, but don't rest on their laurels. Don't smile in photos. Don't be scared of gender-bending. Have an equally cool sibling. Adopt a hairdo that makes everyone wonder how you're walking around without bumping into things. Remember that life is too short to wear boring clothes.
The last tip is one that Smith took to heart while attending the Louis Vuitton Fall 2017 runway show at the Louvre in Paris yesterday. Wearing wide-leg highwaters in a dark blue-green color under a plaid coat, Smith made an impression in a crowd of largely black-clad attendees. The actor/musician/model repped the French label hard with accessories like that Louis Vuitton phone case everyone freaked out about last season, too, casually showing off his ability to land status items. Further highlighting his air of nonchalance was the cross-body bag he wore high and tight under one arm, and of course those face-obscuring locs. In short, Smith proved that he can use his Cool Teen powers to stand out, even in a crowd chock-full of fashion's finest.
