The first-ever Global Kids’ Fashion Week has officially made its debut (we’re surprised it even took this long considering how many brands are branching out into children’s lines), featuring mini versions of all the catwalk shows we love, except so much more adorable. 

According to the Daily Mail, GKFW kicked off in London this week, with a mix of both established and emerging designers, including Paul Smith Junior, Junior Gaultier, Chloe, Little Marc Jacobs, I Pinco Pallino, Suzanne Ermann, Anne Kurris and Supertrash, showing their miniature clothes. Photos: Dave M.

“I think it's important to celebrate children's fashion to show everybody just how amazing it is, and women and men all around the world wear amazing clothes so it's really important that children can too,” said international model Portia Freeman, who modeled with her own son.

Kids bounced down the runway in everything from pink faux -fur coats to metallic and subtly sweet designs with bows and accessories. All in all, it looked pretty adorable. Photos: Dave M. Benett/Getty Images

"Kids' fashion is playful, fun and innovative. We all believe it deserves its own dedicated platform," said Alex Theophanous, founder and CEO of AlexandAlexa.com. "This is why we are so proud to be supporting the very first Global Kids’ Fashion Week. With this event, we aim to put children's fashion on the map worldwide."

Adult cloths on little kids is nothing more than a fashion joke ! And the new look for "Disney's Minnie Mouse" is just another French dagger in Disney's back. They've always hated the  Paris Disneyland  that's why it all but went belly up until "Michael Jackson and an Arab Sheik came forward with a lot of money! It's no loner Euro-Disney; But Paris Disneyland with heavy attractions to Jules Vern (a Frenchman)

Only the top 2% can afford to dress their kids in these outfits.  We continue to give kids the impression they are entitled to have the best of everything at an early age.

    10 of the sexiest denim campaigns of all time

    Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
