20 Couture Kids Pieces to Get For Your Posh Tots Today



A lot of people admire the the couture clothes worn by children of wealthy celebs like Blue Ivy, North West, Harper Beckham and Princess Charlotte , but in today’s age, it is not uncommon for non-celebrity kids of rich parents to dress similar.

A few years ago, we did a post on New York Post  piece highlighting some of the affluent parents who spend loads of money outfitting their children as young as a few months old in super expensive couture and designer kids clothing.

One Brooklyn mom, Priscilla Monteiro, purchased for her then 5-month old daughter Yasmine and then 4-year old girl Vera outfits that cost over $1400 total each to wear to a swanky industry party on a yacht during the Cannes Films Festival. Another mom, Danielle Fornes, a blogger and former educator, mixed up high end  with affordable pieces but still didn’t think twice about dressing her daughter Jolie in a $395 Ralph Lauren dress and $75 Nordstrom ballet flats.

Another Brooklyn mom Sharra Dade told the paper she dresses her daughter Alyssa who is a child model and actress in upscale clothing because of all the industry events she attends with celebrities. As the Post noted,  Salma Hayek dresses her daughter, Valentina, in Gucci, and Victoria Beckham, dresses Harper, often in Burberryand Stella McCartney.

Fornes made a business out of it, charging Upper West Side parents $200 per hour and $150 for an additional child to dress their kids for upscale events and parties, and essentially to  “keep up with the Joneses.”

“These children on the Upper West Side go to a lot of parties, and though the mothers are friends, it’s embarrassing if their son or daughter is wearing the same outfit as someone else,” Fornes told the New York Post. 

It’s a lucrative field and one that many of the top fashion houses aren’t leaving on the table. Roberto CavalliMarc JacobsBurberry, Chloe and other top designer lines all have children’s lines of clothing launched within the last few years.later consigns the clothes that Alyssa wears only once or twice.

And business is booming.

Heidi Lieske of the store Be Mini Couture said “many of our customers are affluent 30- and 40-somethings influenced by mommy blogs and actors who appear with their kids in celebrity magazines.”

Kylie Jenner Just Shared a Close Up Photo of Stormi Webster and She’s Gorgeous!

It was a week after make up mogul and  reality TV star Kylie Jenner complained about not using Snapchat much anymore that the social media app’s stock to fell more than 7 percent (a loss of $1.3 billion in market value).  The youngest of the Jenner/Kardashian clan  has redeemed her love for the video sharing platform (and hopefully some stock value) after sharing a sweet video of her gorgeous one month old baby girl, Stormi Webster on Snapchat on Friday, March 2.

The Life of Kylie star’s quick vid was captioned, “my pretty girl” while daddy, rapper Travis Scott, shared his own version of the same photo of baby sucking on a purple pacifier all bundled and snug in an off white furry blanket.

Stormi’s closeup pic debuted a few days after her cousin Chicago West appeared on Snapchat.  No wonder the fans of Kim Kardashian West and Jenner are feuding. These coincidentally-timed reveals give the fans a lot of fodder to play with.  It appears, along with Dream Kardashian, the girl cousins may grow and be close the same way Penelope Disick and North West are buddies. 

The sisters dismissed it in Twitter responses.

So fucking lame!!! Kim and I are saying how much it has changed and why the divide. We are sisters, best friends and most of all supporters of each other. Bizarre https://t.co/4PowCoMLsC

Kim Kardashian West Doesn’t Let Mommy-Shamers Get Away With It (VIDEO)

Kim Kardashian West is no stranger to being mommy-shamed. She gets it all the time, but unlike a lot of celebs who may just let the haters hate, the reality TV star and biz mom uses her media domination to respond to her critics.

In an August 10, 2017-released video, she replies to those who took shots at her for posting a photo of her son Saint West in the back seat of a vehicle in a forward-facing position.

She explains that Saint is actually the weight and height required for an child to be in that position.

“Saint actually weighs more than North” she says. “If that is believable he does, and it is wild.”

As a mom to some heavy babies, I know moms of color maybe would agree because it is often the experience that their kids are in clothes that are for much older babies and boys often are larger and heavier than girls so yeah, we can dig it.

Watch Kim explain:

Kanye West’s Pre Father’s Day and Birthday Celebration in Japan

kanye-west

Kanye West celebrated his 40th birthday on Thursday, June 8 in Asia during a family getaway which his wife, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Kim Kardashian West, captured on Snapchat. In the quick videos, the couple can be seen among minimalist Japanese decor and quite happy too.

The rapper and business mogul gets a bum rap over his controversial comments, stances and decisions. But overall, I think he is a misunderstood genius who is dealing with his own personal demons but unlike most of us, he has to battle them in public.

Being married the the most photographed reality TV mega star doesn’t help but he is fortunate to have the means to escape it all and travel the world to a serene place like Japan.

With Father’s Day around the corner, I like to spend some time recognizing good dads out there so here is a dedication infographic I created as a long time fan of the man.

Kim Kardashian West Emerges from Her Break From the Public

west-christmas

Kim Kardashian-West has been on a self-imposed social media ban since being bound, gagged and robbed in Paris back in October.  But she sort of came out of it via others this week.

Her husband Kanye West posted a family Christmas photo with them all dressed in black, taken at the Kardashian annual Christmas Party. It was a stark difference from the annual elaborate grande full family photo they used to take every year. Just the nuclear family: mom , dad, daughter North in an Alexander Wang custom dress  and Vans and son Saint wearing little Yeezys sneakers.

This glimpse of the family come after a very tumultuous months.  In addition to Kim being robbed at gunpoint, Kanye canceled his world tour mid concert after suffering a breakdown and being admitted into the hospital for a psych eval, which was diagnosed as a case of exhaustion.

Kim also is not shunning away from social media addicted friends like Paris Hilton who she knows will post a photo of the two of them together as she did here:

 



And she was featured in Khloe’s snap that night as well.

 



She also appeared in a photo at the holiday party of longtime family friend Shelli Azoff at The Forum in Inglewood, California this month.

We Said It: Celeb Kids Stimulate New Businesses 

The Fader published an informative news story recently about how celebrity children are helping to spawn a booming industry for couture kids clothing. It was a topic we’ve blogged about here.

The insightful article also explored the world of Instagram baby swag moms who outfit their children in fashionable chic clothing, and get famous doing so.

We’ve blogged about that trendy phenomena too as discussed before here.

Still, it was great to see the piece quoted an author who validated a concern I have with those baby swag Tumblr and IG pages:

In Kids and Branding in a Digital World, published last year the media theorist Barrie Gunter argues that the success of designer diffusion lines “play[s] on the idea that parents are the source of earliest social learning for their kids,” thereby encouraging parents to project their own brand valuations onto their children. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as Gunter hypothesized, unless children become “overly sensitised to a need to be seen as trendy and fashionable and where self-identity is centrally defined in terms of commercial brand associations.”

One small correction: The Fader piece states that luxury brands started getting into the children’s market beginning in 2010. But on the contrary, beginning in 2008, we began posting a biennial most expensive baby clothes list and Gucci, Chanel and Dior were on it back then too.

Big brands been in the rich babies game.

I did appreciate the inclusion of Australian-based designer Winnie Aoki who dresses Blue Ivy and other celebrity kids in her 5-figure costing originals that each take 300 hours for Aoki to complete.

Aoki, the site pens, was

responsible for the $2,000 dress Blue Ivy wore to her grandmother’s birthday, specializes in kid couture. Aoki crafts dresses from confectionery layers of tulle, sequins, and luxury fabrics under the label Mischka Aoki, named after her own 8-year-old daughter. The dresses, which can take up to 300 hours to craft, frequently come with five-digit price tags. According to her website, Aoki started the brand after she realized there weren’t any clothing options “good enough for her daughter”; for her, “clothes represent style and luxury at the same time.” While it may have been difficult to locate high-end designer clothing for children in 2008, when Mischka was born, the line’s explosive popularity — Aoki has dressed not just Blue Ivy, but North, Penelope Disick, and Suri — is an indicator of the steadily increasing desirability of luxury children’s wear.

It was a well written and researched article. You should check it out here!

Kim Kardashian shares Updated Photos of Her Kids

saint north kim

Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian took to Instagram on Thursday to share adorable photos of her children  6-months old Saint and of herself with 3-year old North.

“On my snap chat,” the proud mama, 35, captioned the cute image of her baby boy dressed in all white as he munches on his fingers.

She also uploaded a photo form her app.

“Mermaid party pics on my app and KimKardashianWest.com,” the business mogul wrote about the fun photo of the two girls in mermaid outfits.

“You’re the sun in my morning babe,” she captioned the photo of Saint.

Kardashian recently talked about having her hands full with “energetic and wild” North and “sweet and calm” Saint.

“They look so much alike, but they have totally different personalities,” she said . “All North wants to do is put on a costume and sing and dance. She steals all my jewelry, she loves clothes and she’s obsessed with makeup. Saint sits and smiles all day long!”

Kim Kardashian’s Rocky road to pregnancy- before and after

kim kardashian getty

This week, Kim Kardashian announced she and her husband Kanye West are expecting their second child. It was big news for less than a half a day when it was overshadowed by her step dad Bruce reveal in Vanity Fair magazine of his new transgender identity as Caitlyn Jenner.

Throughout all the amplified media attention over that news, Kardashian is dealing with severe morning sickness, USA Today reports . She appeared cool and collected rocking a black sheer and stud embellished Proenza Schouler dress with her hubby on the red carpet to Monday night’s CDFA Awards at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on June 1, 2015 in New York City.

In fact, the road to pregnancy and all involved with the state of pregnancy has been rocky for Kardashian.  The reality TV star battled harsh criticism over her weight gain and choice of maternity wear for the last pregnancy, then by its end she developed preeclamsia-triggered extreme high blood pressure. She had to have an emergency pre-term c-section caused by complications from that condition, and another problem with her uterine lining.

Then, on her journey to expand her family, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast member stumbled upon complications and experienced infertility for eight months before becoming successful with the help of in vitro fertiliztion.  A source to PEOPLE  magazine reported that the business mogul had to repair the lining of her uterus which was the source of a lot of her complications to conceive.

One has to just chuckle about the amount of reporting on one woman’s reproductive organs. Phew!

The family, which includes almost 2-year old Nori West, will welcome the new addition this December.

Congratulations!

And of course, as could be expected, the comments and tweets came flowing in joking that this baby will be named, South West.

Funny stuff!

Harper Beckham beats Blue Ivy and North West as most coveted celebrity child model

So Blue Ivy and North West aren’t the most sought after child models after all?
The UK Telegraph claims that Harper Beckham‘s parents Victoria and David Beckham have been offered up to $30 million worth of modeling contracts since she was spotted sitting in the front row at her mom’s New York Fashion Week show last week.
“Companies see her as the greatest role model for a wholesome, modern family image,”an insider reportedly stated. “She’s surrounded by a happily-married working couple and go-getting brothers. You cannot buy that kind of appeal.”
The same insider said that mom and dad have rejected all offers. 
Must be nice to be able to afford to turn down all that dough.
