Mom-approved! Kris Jenner revealed in a recent interview with HuffPost Live she didn't mind Jaden Smith's odd white Batman ensemble he wore to daughter Kim Kardashian's May 24 wedding to Kanye West. In fact, she thought it was "genius!"

"He is the greatest kid in the world," Jenner said of Smith, 15, to HuffPost Live on June 5. "I'm very close to Jaden and he's like one of my own, you know." 

So how exactly did the mom of six feel about the teen's ensemble at the star-studded nuptials? "He had this Batman costume on and I thought it was just genius," she said. "When you look at it … it sounds just crazy," Kardashian's mom admitted of his white costume, "[But] it was beautiful. He looked so good, and so fun, and he also has a really good sense of humor."

While other guests in attendance at the lavish nuptials opted for more conventional black-tie garb, the momager admitted Will Smith's son's outfit added "humor to the night." 

"It was almost like, 'Oh, there's Jaden in his Batman costume,'" Jenner explained of daughter Kylie Jenner's BFF and rumored boyfriend. "It wasn't like a crazy thing."

Jaden's ensemble also came in handy the following day. 

"He saved my life the next day," the 58-year-old revealed, "Because I lost my suit and shoes I had gone to Florence in—I couldn't find my clothes. I happened to have a pair of jeans and a jacket and shirt to leave in. But I had no shoes, expect my Giuseppe Zanotti shoes that Giuseppe gave us to wear walking down the aisle, but I couldn't wear those home."

"Jaden came walking out of the hotel and I said. 'Jaden, where's your Batman boots?'… And I borrowed them!" she said. "So, Batman saved the day."
