Jaden Smith

Hollywood rolled out the red carpet at the Divergent premiere on Tuesday. The film’s stars including Zoë Kravitz and Kate Winslet were in attendance, but it was Jaden Smith who stole the show with his hilarious facial expressions.

Wearing a tie-dye bucket hat, oversized Puma sweater, and skinny jeans, the self-proclaimed Misfit posed for a series of silly pics for photographers.

The 15-year-old rapper-actor, who is working on the follow-up to his 2012 mixtape The Cool Cafe, recently took to Twitter to praise Kid Cudi’s album’s Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon.

“Kid Cudi’s New Album Is Next Level. I’m Starting To Have Hope For Modern Music Again,” tweeted Jaden.

A$AP Rocky, who is back in the lab working on his sophomore album, hit the carpet in all black. The Harlem rapper collaborated with French DJ Gesaffelstein on “In Distress” for the Divergent soundtrack.

Another one of the soundtrack’s contributors, Pia Mia, turned heads with her bold look. The 17-year-old singer, who recently signed a deal with Interscope Records, matched her blue pantsuit to her blue contacts, completing her look with red heels and her signature red bandana.
