The shots on Nicolas Ghesquière's Instagram page are from the brand’s forthcoming Spring/Summer 2016 campaign.

Smith appears in the shots, by legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber, wearing a biker-style leather jacket, a tassled white string top and a patterned black skirt.

The 17-year-old actor - who is the son of Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith - is renowned for being photographed wearing skirts and dresses.

Smith previously Instagrammed images of himself wearing a black-and-white dress, accompanied by the words: "Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean ‘Clothes'." He has since made his Instagram account private.
