Jaden Smith Explains Why He Wore a Batsuit to Kimye's Wedding


There were plenty of moments to remember from Kimye's wedding that will live on for decades to come, but one that particularly stood out was Jaden Smith's batsuit outfit. As anyone who has ever attended a wedding, it's pretty clear that this is not your conventional guest garb — especially for the celebrity wedding of the century! Now, a year and some change later, Smith finally opened up about why he chose that outfit to wear to not only Kimye's outlandish wedding in Florence last year, but to his prom as well.

Smith explained to GQ that his style icons include both the man behind the suit he wore that fateful day and the groom of the wedding! "My style icons are Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Superman, and Kanye West," the famed teenager said.

As for why he wore it to the wedding, it was a means of "protection." "I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so," he said. Who he felt he needed to protect, though, we'll never know.

And Jaden has a long history of wearing his Batman suit. He recalled to GQ of the first thing he remembers wearing as a child: "I remember these duck boots. They were just duck boots, but I would wear the normal Batman suit or my Spider-Man suit with them and never take them off. "

It all makes sense now ... right?
