Jaden Smith's formalwear closet looks a lot like that of Marvel character. The sixteen-year-old, who once wore a white Batman suit to Kim and Kanye's wedding, tossed the traditional prom tux for a white superhero costume. The teen threw a jacket and tie over for certain "formal" photos, but stripped himself later in the night because, like most proms, the air conditioning malfunctioned.
