Fendi held a fashion show at their Fifth Ave. flagship store yesterday to celebrate the domestic launch of their first kids collection. They used 34 boys and girls aged four to six to model the sweetly chic collection. Celeb guest Kelly Rutherford took a walk down the runway, too, kids in tow (despite that fact that her son, Hermes, looked like he didn’t want to be there at all).
The kids and the clothes are toothache sweet, but a toddler runway show is still a little bit off-putting. Just like it made us feel awkward to look at kids posing all sulky and sultry in Vogue Enfants, it feels a little weird to see a four-year-old with his hands on his hips strutting a runway–especially when that four-year-old is modeling a bathing suit. At the same time, it’s totes adorbs.
Take a look.
