Move over, Tavi Gevinson, because there’s a new youngin in town earning her fashion stripes. 12-year-old tweenager Maddie Ziegler, better known as Sia’s leotard-wearing, wig-donning mini muse, has been spotted front row at Karen Walker’s Fall 2015 fashion show for New York Fashion Week, today (ET), February 16, sitting in what we think could be one of the best FROWs ever.
There was no Kimye, Swifty or Kloss, just a handful of inspiring influencers who are more concerned with being cool than landing a Hollywood headline. We’re talking social media sensation Josh Otrovsky, AKA “The Fat Jew” and his puppy-model Toast, humanitarian Kyleigh Kuhn, babin’ DJ Chelsea Leyland, gap-toothed beauty Jessica Hart, and fashion blogger/stylist/model/photographer/insert-any-fashion-related-profession-here Margaret Zhang.
Maddie was at Karen Walker on official business as elle.com’s NYFW correspondent, stopping by Zac Posen, Alice + Olivia, Rosie Assoulin and Houghton’s shows today. The pre-teen will be working right through to Thursday, so we hope she doesn’t get too behind in her school work or choreography.
