As youth across the country are currently redefining the nature of prom, Jaden Smith tapped into the mood of the moment on social media yesterday.
As Smith and girlfriend Odessa Adlon headed to Adlon’s prom in Los Angeles, the couple presented a modern vision of eveningwear for the Gen-Z set. The look was coordinated yet offbeat, with Adlon in a sparkling black fringed skirt worn with a matching sequin-covered crop top and Smith donning a dapper tux with silver stitching running down the sides of his slacks. The traditionalism of Adlon’s pink corsage found its compliment in Smith’s ripped-from-the-runways mix of luxury sneakers and thick Cuban link chain.
Given that Smith wore a dress when accompanying friend Amandla Stenberg to her school dance back in 2015, it’s clear his choice in attire isn’t defined by tradition. And compared to the frou-frou options typically associated with the high school event, Smith and Adlon’s black-on-black moment was a step towards a sleeker type of prom glamour.
The couple posed beneath a floral arch and even adding a pastel boutonniere to Smith’s lapel, clearly enjoying a night that remains a rite of passage for many teens. Post-event, Smith posted a snapshot to Twitter summed up the night with deadpan wit: “we went to prom, this picture describes the experience.”
