"Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman" -- or be Batman and Jaden Smith at the same time, that's even better.

Like any 17-year-old, Jaden Smith went to prom -- but he decided to go against the cultural norm and wear more of a costume than a tux. Jaden brought out his tried-and-true white Batman costume to escort his lady to prom. After all if it is good enough for Kimye's wedding, why wouldn't it work for prom too?

While the costume has a full-on cape and muscular chest, Smith did put on a suit and tie over his cape. His date Mecca Kalani wore all white, as well.

Check out the duo's ensembles below:
