Of course, most parents want to do the best for their children. Some might think that involves costuming their wee ones as Chanel bags on Halloween, but any truly involved parent knows that one day a year is hardly enough time to instill a strong sense of brand loyalty in any growing boy or girl. Jean Paul Gaultier was presumably catering to this enlightened market with his upcoming kid-only couture line, practically the first of its kind. Following Gaultier's lead, we realize we've been seriously remiss to not include more coverage of ridiculous children's fashion, and that's going to change right here, right now.
Do you want to dress your real or imagined daughter in a way that helps foster her materialism, superficiality and status-obsession? Today, you're in luck. Here are some very cute pieces, culled from the kid's section at Barneys.com, which are perfect for any pretty pretty little princess who loves throwing tantrums in style. And remember: her body and her brain may not be fully developed, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't have the very best.
With hot pink lining.
I think Anna Dello Russo owns a version of this dress.
"Rustically knit and impeccably groomed with a pink satin bow, Fifi is ready to wrap herself around your child's jackets, coats and sweaters."
Dolce & Gabbana leopard print cardigan, $605
You can mix and match these pieces or wear them all together, for one cohesive look that absolutely screams maximum brattiness.
