Willow and Jaden Smith were honored as the youngest fashion icons to receive an award at The Fashion Awards 2016. Swarovski even gave the two a shout out on their Twitter to congratulate them on their achievement. The event was hosted by the British Fashion Council and was held at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The British Fashion Oscars is celebrating its 27th year, and Jaden did appear to receive the award as sister Willow was unable to attend.
The children of Will Smith have made quite the mark in the fashion industry, even at such a young age. The two are often called upon for their fashion choices and Willow has already managed to walk a Chanel runway and create her own MSFTS fashion line, which includes T-shirts.
Also at the event was designer Ralph Lauren, who was presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award.

Jaden Smith’s Style
At the award show, Jaden showed off his shiny grillz and wore an edgy blue and red-striped suit. The suit was paired with patent loafers with fur fringe. Although he kept his accessories to a minimum, his dreadlocked hair definitely completed the outfit as it was tied high on his head and covering half of his face.
Jaden has always been known for what some may deem “outrageous” style, but really, the young star is just making a place for himself in the fashion world. From layers to oversized pieces and mixing textures and patterns, Jaden isn’t afraid to make a statement with the clothing he wears.
When Jaden is dressed down, he is often seen in oversized T-shirts and skinny pants. When he’s modeling, he has been seen in some over-the-top color combinations and outfits.
Jaden also isn’t afraid to cross gender boundaries. There have been many occasions where he has worn a skirt or even a female kimono, which goes to show that fashion doesn’t have a gender. He also isn’t afraid to wear religious motifs. He was spotted wearing a crucified Jesus on his sweater at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party. For Jaden, fashion has no limits or lines that cannot be crossed; all is fair in the fashion world.
If you want to achieve Jaden Smith’s style, there are a few things to keep in mind: oversized shirts, denim, joggers, plenty of layering, sneakers, jackets, and mixing patterns and textures. These are basically the fundamentals to all of Jaden’s outfit choices. If you can narrow in on these aspects, then you can get yourself somewhat close to the style of Jaden Smith – although having the infamous dreads helps greatly, too.
Willow and Jaden Smith are still quite young, and yet, they have already managed to take the fashion world by storm. From being the faces of major fashion houses to walking the runway for them, the Smiths clearly have an imbedded spot in the fashion world and so we can’t see what the duo will come up with next.
