The first-ever Global Kids Fashion Week
Kids walk the runway in the inaugural show for little ones.
Fashion Week is no longer just for adults! 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.

“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.
"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."

Sprinkle in these wet weather essentials so you'll be ready for whatever these springtime days bring.

Every bride deserves to look flawless on her wedding day. So we say: Indulge a little. Book a facial (or six!) and invest in a great waterproof mascara. With this guide, getting ready for your big day has never been easier.
Reality TV: such a mindless guilty pleasure, mostly filled with questionable spray tans and insane hair extensions. But in honor of the season premiere of one of our favorites, The Real Housewives of Orange County, we decided to celebrate a select few reality stars who’ve displayed legitimately great hair and makeup. Yes, there actually are a few! And we had to go all the way back to The Real World of the mid-’90s to find our first.
I can’t tell you how many times one ill-timed sneeze ruined all of my hard work with a mascara wand. #allergyproblems.
While we’re not averse to shelling out upwards of $30 for an amazing lipstick, many of our standby lip colors cost a whole lot less than that. The drugstore is full of high-quality, long-lasting lipsticks in gorgeous shades that—wait for it!—ring in under $10. Click through above to shop our favorites!
What’s the perfect add-on to your beauty look? A hair accessory, of course! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, every year there seems to be a new “it” hair piece that rules the moment. In the ’50s, a dainty bow-tied head scarf was perfectly housewife-chic. In the ’60s and ’70s, real flower crowns officially became the epitome of boho style—your outfit simply wasn’t complete without a daisy topper. Fast-forward to the ’90s and you had a bevy of creative hair charms and baubles, including butterfly clips, hair wraps and those infamous bra strap headbands (shudder).
The right blush can warm up your complexion, create the illusion of cheekbones, and even make you look younger. (Yes, really!) Here, the most flattering shades for fair, medium, olive, and dark skin.
Think you can’t put a price on looking younger? Well, we did—and it’s $25. We challenged dermatologists to find great products that don’t cost even one cent over that amount.
You want to dress in a way that’s young and cool but that doesn’t suggest you’re on your way to a One Direction concert. “The trick to looking younger is adding one fashionable piece to a classic outfit,” says stylist Cher Coulter. Here’s how to nail it.
Hair color is one of the most effective anti-aging tools we have—except when it isn’t. Take your dye job too far (or inky, or frosty) and you can add years to your appearance. Three top colorists weigh in on what to avoid.
News flash: Your youth fix doesn’t have to come in a bottle—or a needle. Your hairstyle could actually take years off (or add them to) your look. Don’t believe us? Check out these celebrities—each one gorgeous, of course, but also looking older due to certain overly perfect hairdos. Anti-aging tip number one? Mess it up a little.
