American rapper, singer, songwriter, model, actor and businessman, Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, simply known as Jaden turns 22 today, July 8, 2020. To celebrate the multitalented star, we’re looking at all the expressions that have made us fall for him especially his innovative style. Jaden Smith birthday style.
Born to popular actor parents, Will and Jada Smith, who have in recent times gotten some probably unwanted publicity, Jaden has had a fairly long career being a Jack of all trades. In 2006, 8-year-old Jaden starred in his first movie ever, The Pursuit of Happiness with his father, Will Smith. Since then, he has acted in a number of movies including the remakes of The Day Earth Stood Still in 2008 and The Karate Kid in 2010. In 2013, he once again acted with his father in the movie After Earth.
Jaden went on to act in the second part of the Netflix original The Get Down, voice acted the anime, Neo Yokio and played a role in Skate Kitchen––which according to him, is his personal favorite, being a skate head himself.
His younger sister, Willow is also an actress, artiste producer and co-host of popular talk show, Red Table Talk with her mother and grandmother.
Music Jaden Smith style
In 2010, Jaden was featured by Canadian artiste Justin Bieber on the song, Never say never, which was a soundtrack for the Karate Kid movie remake he starred in. The song peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified 5X platinum in the US. Since then, he has gone on to release two mix tapes, The Cool Cafe (2012) and The Cool Tape Vol. 2 – CTV2 (2014) and then released two albums to wide acclaim, SYRE (2017) and ERYS (2019).

A huge highlight of his career was when he opened alongside Young Thug for J. Cole’s KOD Tour in 2018. When asked about his inspirations, he named his father including a host of rappers like Kid Cudi––who’s expressed his desire to do a joint album with Jaden––and Kanye West. Speaking about his father, he said, “He started in music and transitioned to movies. I started with movies, and then I transitioned into making music. I look at him and use it as a blueprint of how good of a person he is, but not necessarily the success that he reached.”
Jaden first partnered with Spring Water company, Just Water, when he was 12 years old to create water infrastructure and provide water to poorer areas where portable water is not easily accessible. So far, he provides water to Flint, Michigan and recently Just Water launched in the UK. Jaden Smith birthday style.
Style is something Jaden takes very seriously and as a result he started his own clothing and lifestyle brand, MSFTSrep along with his sister and a host of others. Describing MSFTS Republic, he said, “there has never been anything like MSFTSrep before, because there are very few collectives willing to sacrifice the safe, cliché, and popular for something entirely new which has never been seen before. Because it is simply impossible to predict the unknown, and MSFTSrep is in fact, unknown.”
In 2013 Jaden collaborated with a Korean designer, Choi Bum Suk, to create a pop-up store in which customers can buy clothes with their collaborated logos.
Style Jaden Smith style
According to GQ, Jaden Smith is in a league of his own when it comes to style choices in addition to so many things that he does. He has mastered the art of expressing himself using old trends that give him a grunge, dark but classy look.
In 2016, he collaborated with Louis Vuitton where he modeled a skirt on the runway being the first male to model women’s wear for the brand. Throughout that year, he continued to wear skirts and when asked, he said he was attempting to combat bullying, saying “In five years, when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him.”
He pays very close attention to his styling down to the T and it is evident in his accessorizing––from hats to bags, shoes, neck pieces to his teeth grill.
