Hip Hop History: Jaden Smith Arrives at Met Gala With Dreads in Hand
There’s several notable staple accessories in hip-hop music: grills, chains, Jordan’s, but at the 2017 Met Gala Jaden Smith shook it up by carrying his own dreads as an accessory.
The Met Gala is one of the greatest annual fashion events. Each year, the greatest names in pop culture pair up with a designer and walk down the red carpet in an outfit designed to match the gala’s theme (which happened to be Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons).
Of course Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Migos looked absolutely dapper, but there was no one who drew more attention than young Jaden Smith.
The rapper took to the red carpet sporting a newly shaved head with his own dreads in his hands. His incredible grill and perfectly tailored Louis Vuitton suit were overshadowed by the bouquet of locs that Smith spent most of the night posing with.
Of course the Internet went absolutely insane the next day, but the tour of Smith’s dreadlocks didn’t stop. They even joined him on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
We are now forced to question what Smith will accessorize with this Met Gala: A bag of dog shit? An item of roadkill? His own severed foot? We’ll just have to wait until May to see.
