Are Babies the Must-Have Accessory for Fashion Editorials?

When it comes to accessorizing an editorial, magazine editors know that there's one thing that will never fail to instantly jazz up a shoot: Babies! You need only to look at Vogue Spain's December cover, shot by Bruce Weber and starring a chubby baby's behind (and we think that Dree Hemingway is in it as well? We weren't paying attention...) to know what we mean. Whether it's baby carriages, baby bottles, or bare baby bums, there's something about infants that is just so...chic, no? Take a look at the many fashion editorials featuring babies and get inspired to rock your baby (or niece or nephew) next time you really want to make an impression. There's only one question that remains: Just where, oh where, are magazines finding all these babies!?

The baby trend knows no cultural bounds. Here a very, um, tanned Constance Jablonski gets a hand from her adorable costar in a 2010 Numero shoot.

And it's embraced by both genders as well. This male model, shot by Matthias Vriens McGrath for Out Magazine, might need to brush up on his baby manners though.

Even children look chicer pushing baby carriages!
