In the Instagram world, Alonso Mateo is kind of a big deal.
The California local's got a sharp eye for designer fashion, a smooth repetoire of camera-friendly poses, and over 19,000 followers to date.
Alonso's Instagram shots show him doing everything from surfing to travelling – and always in a killer ensemble. Look up 'cool dude' in the dictionary and you'll probably find his profile photo right there.
Oh yeah – and he's 5 years old.
Because there's nothing the average 5 year old enjoys more than striking a pose in Dolce and Gabbana.
Remember the story we brought you about Quinoa – the made-up Pinterest toddler with an impeccable wardrobe and a bevy of stylish pals? Alonso's Instagram account is just like that – only, just like Pinocchio, he's a real boy.
A real boy with a penchant for combat boots, sunglasses and flattering camera filters.
Alonso's taste for Tom Ford, Gucci and Dior garments – no Cotton On Kids for this little guy – stems from his mother, freelance fashion stylist Luisa Fernanda Espinosa. Alonso's personal Instagram account (see it here) was a spin-off of Luisa's (@luisafere), which has over 133,000 followers.
Luisa says Alonso styles and produces all his own shots, but is open to her sartorial guidance. (Impressive. If only all five year olds were so accepting of their parents' input…)
