Jaden Smith’s dreadlocks were the focus at the New York premiere of Allegiant held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater on March 14, 2016 in New York City. Dressed in a button-down plaid shirt and black pants, Smith styled his locs in a manner that was every bit unique.


The young star brought all of his dreads to the top of his head and bound them so that they leaned forward. Perhaps the highlight of the style was that each section was going a different way. The ponytail on the right stuck out a bit more than the one on the left, which rested between Jaden’s ear and eye. Then there was the middle ponytail that took precedence as the center of attraction.


Many attendees commented on Jaden’s hairstyle at the premiere as it certainly was unique. Distinctiveness is what Jaden goes for every time he dresses, which is why he accepted the offer to model Louis Vuitton’s women’s line. “I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms,” Jaden told GQ. “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.”


Jaden is Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s oldest child. The couple have two kids together, and Will fathers three children in all.

    There are a lot of children that come from “Hollywood royalty” that don’t strive for such attention-seeking antics. I’m worried about this boy and his obsession with constantly being the focus. It becomes insatiable and, just like numerous former child star tragedies, it never ends well.

    why is he trying to look raggedy on purpose? I bet people who really don’t have a lot of money would put on their best for something like this. if he isn’t into all this Hollywood hype, why not just turn down premieres and stay home? Any publicity is good publicity I guess…
