What happens when kids judge celebrity style?
Ask my daughter, Annabella, what she wants to be when she grows up, and she will tell you she wants to be, “a fashion girl”. When you ask her what a “fashion girl” does, she’ll inform you they “wear pretty dresses and look in the mirror all day.”
Each morning it takes Annabella about an hour to painstakingly select her ensemble – she won’t leave the house until it’s absolutely perfect, from the multiple barrettes down to her intentionally mismatched socks. And her style opinions don’t just apply to her own outfits, they apply to everyone. If she had her druthers, I’d be donning ball gowns to dinner and stilettos in the sand box. And after I bribed her with a new pair of purple-bowed ballet flats, she shared her opinions on the best and worst of celebrity mom fashion. And, yes, this 4-year-old fashion blogger had plenty to say.
“I like her shoes and her tights and her dress because it’s checkered. She looks like she’s going to a checker-playing game party where you have to wear checkers all day”.
“Ick. Icky. Poo. She doesn’t look pretty. I don’t like her outfit because it doesn’t have ANY fashion in it. It’s funny that she’s showing her tummy. That’s weird. She looks plain.”
“She looks kind of cute. I like her high heels because they’re black and red. But she’s wearing an animal. I don’t know what kind of animal, but it sure is furry. Maybe it’s from a fuzzy monkey?”
“She looks kind of pretty. I like the colors of her dress. She looks like a princess with sunglasses on. I like her hair mucher. Her dress is super pretty. I’d wear that dress.”

“Her dress looks like a witch dress. Actually, she looks like a ballerina witch. She doesn’t look pretty. She looks kind of scary.”
“Her dress looks not so fashionish. It looks like she like she’s going to a Halloween party. It looks not fashion but you can tell that it is.”
“That girl is pretty. She is pretty pretty. All of her is pretty pretty. She’s a movie girl I think. Her dress reminds me of Alvin & the Chipmunks because one of the little chipmunk girls had a silver dress on just like it.”
“Whoa! Her dress is stunning. I like all the pink and purple, and I really like her hair the most. She looks like she is a movie star in her birthday outfit and she’s going to get a cake from the store.”
“Ohhhh! Her dress is pretty! That is my favorite color. That and pink, purple, and green and red and black. Maybe she is a flamingo dancer?”
“I like her outfit because it’s black and black is my favorite color-just like purple and pink. She kind of looks like you a little bit. Just a little bit.” : And that’s what I love about that girl of mine.
