If you take a quick glance at the successful fashion cute kid Instagram accounts, it’s pretty obvious childhood is overrated. California’s Alonso Mateo has over 600,000 followers, Gavinduh has 200,000 and Mini Style hacker boasts 260,000. Then there’s little two-year-old Millie-Belle Diamond from Sydney with 134,000 followers and four-year-old Pixie Curtis (daughter of P.R. queen Roxy Jacenko), also from Sydney, with 108,000.
Instead of spinning in circles with a bucket on their head in the backyard or playing hide and seek, these amateur child models, like Alonso (pictured below), are spending hours getting dressed and being photographed looking profound in a camel-coloured leather jacket, deck shoes, aviator sunglasses and flat-front cuffed pants.
Watch Pixie Curtis complain about her clothes not matching below. Post continues after video.
Alonso may need to take off his aviators before he plays a rigorous neighbourhood game of tip-the-bucket or gets his hands dirty making a racing track in the garden. Who are we kidding? He’ll take off his aviators after he parks his trike on Melrose and has a cognac.
There are scores of little kids on Instagram who have become fashion icons according to the New York Times.
