He's keeping it fresh. Real fresh. Jaden Smith—son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith—checked off a high school rite of passage and attended the prom, like many other American kids. And while he started the evening in what appears to be an ordinary white tux, he ended the evening as a superhero. Because, why not, right?
In a series of photos posted to Instagram, we see Smith early in the night taking the typical pre-prom photos in his dapper tux, with his date. (You know, those classic "lounging in a vintage car" posed shots.)
Then, the magic starts to unravel as you see the hint of what looks to be a cape peeking out from the bottom of his jacket like a magnificent tail. (Also, what the hell happened to prom dresses in the last decade?)
It's once the happy couple gets to the gym that Jaden unveils the full effect of his one-of-a-kind prom outfit.
Yes, folks: Batman. Jaden Smith went to prom dressed as a futuristic version of the Caped Crusader and he couldn't be happier about it!
Lest you think it might be wasteful to create a custom-made Batman suit for one night, worry not. Smith has worn this getup on one other extra-special occasion—the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
No one can ever say Jaden Smith doesn't stay true to himself. And the "self" in this case happens to be a superhero. YOLO, kid.
