Celebrity babies combine two things that humans love: our innate human desire to continue the evolutionary cycle, and our obsession with, and inability to look away from, anything that is celebrity-related. It's nearly impossible to avoid a celebrity baby story because the media almost always capitalizes on these toddlers. The practice is a given for tabloids and network news channels, and even Vogue is guilty of it. And even though it is somewhat disturbing for these little children to have their lives broadcasted for the world to know, we as humans just simply can't look away. So, when two celebrities come together and reproduce, it's almost impossible to avoid it, or not be interested, because it's like trying to stop human nature.
But what happens when you factor fashion into that equation? Well, you get a bunch of well-dressed babies with famous names who are irresistibly fascinating. Whether they're taking holiday photos or accompanying their parents to fancy events, their lives are broadcasted everywhere and we love to watch. Especially when they're only a few years old and already dressed in designer duds. Typically they're adorable, typically they're gorgeous, and typically they have better wardrobes than you. So, who wouldn't want to witness the style evolution of the daughters or sons of celebrities you already know so well?
I know I do. While I admit that I feel mildly creepy when I gush over how cute Prince George looks in his little mini man suit from the latest event from across the pond, I remind myself that it's not just me who's obsessing over a baby they've never met. Because while I may not know anything about him, I feel like I do. And telling me not to adore him and every other celebrity child is like telling me not to eat that last cookie; I'm going to do it anyway.
So, to not only fulfill your celebrity obsession but also your undeniable interest in fashion and all things babies, here are nine celebrity tots who are already better dressed than you or me, even though their age is a single digit.
It's okay, I'm already crying too.
1. Blue Ivy Carter
If your mom was Beyoncé and you dad was Jay-Z, wouldn't you be stoked? Blue Ivy Carter has already made headlines with her cute, charming smile and her colorful, quirky outfits only make her more lovable. Because of the nature of her parents' professions, Carter has gotten quite the attention from the media, and I wouldn't be surprised if she took after her parents and pursued music as she grew older. That being said, I have no doubt she'll for sure take after her parents in the style sense. Bey and Jay both have such distinct, cool styles, so I'm curious to know what style Carter will identify best with. With any hope, she'll continue wearing white Mary Jane's and put bows in her hair, because isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?
2. North West
Combine two of the biggest names in the world, a.k.a. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and your life is inevitably going to be broadcasted on every possible medium. That’s the story of North West. The now adorable two-year-old has gotten quite a lot of attention, from posing for Instagrams to showing paparazzi who's boss. Plus, her fashion-forward parents have already introduced her to high fashion designers and the front row at Fashion Week, so there’s no doubt West’s status as a style icon will only solidify itself as she grows up in front of the cameras.
Not only did she inherit her parents' confidence, but also their knack for all-black outfits and creative yet trendy pieces. There’s no doubt that by the time West is a teenager her wardrobe will be packed with designer items (that might already be true), and I’m curious to see if her biker chic style will change or stay the same when she’s old enough to dress herself.
3. Prince George
Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge is arguably the most adored baby on the planet right now. Not only is he an heir to the British throne, but he is also dashingly handsome and his sweet smile already makes girls swoon. His mom and dad, Princess Kate and Prince William of Cambridge, consistently kill the fashion game with their chic, smart ensembles, and I'm sure George will learn their sartorial ways if he hasn't already.
George's second birthday is in July, and he's getting a sibling very soon, so he'll have to dress like the older brother he's going to become. He's already covering magazines and I have no doubt he'll be on more covers in the future — hopefully for his sense of style in addition to his adorable chubby cheeks.
4. Harper Beckham
Although she's not royal, she may as well be. Harper Beckham is another British tot who is already always dressed to the nines. Her parents, soccer star David Beckham and Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, have such thorough resumes in the fashion industry that her chic style was a given from the moment she popped out of the womb. Plus, her siblings Brooklyn and Romeo are already photographed on magazine covers and posing for Burberry, respectively, so it's a matter of time before Harper gets a fashion spot of her own.
Granted, the opportunities are plenty and she's still only three years old, so she's got time. But I wouldn't be surprised if I saw her in a print advertisement alongside her brothers within the next two years in addition to sitting front row at runways. Hopefully by then she'll grow out of the habit of picking her nose but you have to give her props for doing what she wants, even if she is sitting by Anna Wintour.
5. Suri Cruise
When it comes to celebrity babies, you can't not mention Suri Cruise. Can you believe she's already nine years old? It seems like just yesterday that parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes first announced their pregnancy together. But since then, Suri has made a name for herself and is already walking red carpets, like at the most recent Kid's Choice Awards. The Brunette beauty showed up to the event in a cropped, destroyed denim jacket over a cute, pastel dress and a cross body bag.
Her sweet, prim dresses the public most often saw her in might be of the past. So is destroyed denim her future? We'll just have to wait and see how Suri's style evolves as she grows older.
6. James Reynolds
When gorgeous actors and actresses get together and make babies, there’s only one result when their DNA combines: more gorgeousness. Even though we have yet to learn much about Blake Lively and Ryan Reynold’s daughter, I have no doubt she’ll join the ranks of the fashion-forward celebrity baby club along with North, Suri, and the Beckham kids.
While we have yet to see what she actually looks like, if her parents are any indication, she’ll surely be classy and chic, and with any hope, will continue Serena Van Der Woodsen’s glamorous bohemian style. Or maybe she’ll pull more towards a prim and proper Blair Waldorf? We’ll just have to wait and see.
7. John Jolie-Pitt
The eight-year-old daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently stepped out at a movie premiere alongside siblings, grandparents, and dad in a suit and tie. The choice wasn't exactly a fashion statement, but that made the conversations it opened all the more important. That being said, John's choice really solidifies fashion as a form of self-expression. No matter what you identify most with, and no matter who will criticize that, John's sleek suit and tie exemplifies that fashion is a choice and everyone has that right to individuality and uniqueness. The fact that John already understands that as a child is remarkable, and promises for some fashionable years to come.
8. Mason Disick
Being a five-year-old is tough, but Mason Disick makes it look easy. Especially with his easy, breezy California cool style. And that's probably thanks to mom Kourtney Kardashian and dad Scott Disick. While both his parents have quite distinguished styles, Mason is already catching on to his own. You can often spot him in stripes and even wearing henleys and neon shorts, and I'm sure his color and print experimentation won't end any time soon. Like with the Beckham clan, I wouldn't be surprised if Mason and his two younger siblings started posing for fashion magazines or brands. Their inherent interest in style (thanks to mom and dad) are sure to keep the three of them on the fashion scene as they grow up.
9. Skyler Berman
When it comes to celebrity fashion stylists, Rachel Zoe is by far the biggest name is the business. So when she gave birth to her first son, Skyler, there was no doubt she was going to make him the best dressed baby in town — and that's what she did. But Skyler turned four in March and is growing old enough to dress himself. So will his preppy, white-collared style shift? Or will he follow his mom's lead? And what will his younger brother, Kaius, do? Only time will tell. But if there's one thing that's for sure, it's that these two siblings have a never-ending list of fashion contacts so I doubt they'll ever run into any style problems.
