One of the worst things you can do is dress your child as if it is an adult. There’s something creepy about a child walking around dressed as if it was a full-grown person. This is not something that occurs often with normal people…but celebrities are horrible at violating this rule. Okay, it’s not a rule…but it should be.
I have chosen three of the best celebrity children dressed as adults, in a segment I like to call: “Celebrity Children…Lookin’ All Adult and Stuff”.
Romeo & Cruz Beckham
This picture says, “If I can’t adopt foreign kids like Brad and Angelina, I’ll just dress them like Cholos and make the best of what I have.”
Children should not be treated as accessories and this is clearly what is going on here. Although it is an odd accessory choice. Her outfit says “Hollywood” while her kids say “East LA”. That is a confusing and unnecessary combination and should be avoided at all costs.
We would like to see Victoria step it up a little bit and dress her children in something a little more appropriate. I don’t care if she decks them out in Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana gear…this has to stop. Grade: D-
The Jolie-Pitt Clan
The Benetton Bunch is seen here walking through the airport. Is there any order to this? We have pictured from L to R: Ninja Courrier, Serena Williams, Asian Businessman, Lara Croft, and Lesbian Yachtsman.
If this isn’t bad enough, just imagine if all of their children were pictured here. They have two others…and they’re twins. If they were pictured I’m positive that they would be in matching Leprechaun outfits.
The Jolie-Pitt’s get two grades. I give them an A- for almost completing a rainbow, and an F for outfit non-execution. Average Grade: C-
The Original MTV's "Teen Mom"
Maddie Briann Aldridge (aka Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter)
Oops, Britney’s sister did it again (insert lame round of applause). This would almost be an acceptable outfit for a celebrity child, if not for the mother dressing almost the exact same way. What we have here is essentially a mother trying to dress like her daughter, while still dressing her daughter. It’s just a mess.
1988 called and it wants its neon shirt and jean jacket back. Zing.
I am going to let JLS slide on this one just because she had her child when she was just 17 years old. She still dresses like a child herself and it only makes sense that they look the same.
I would like to start a rumor here. Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter is pregnant. Spears will become a 20-year old grandmother. Remember, you heard it here first. Grade: B+
It only makes sense that this child be a fashion icon…15-20 years from now. The offspring of Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani is caught out on the town eating an apple. He has ditched the ‘rents and lives by his own rules. At least he is making healthy dietary choices.
This outfit proves that 4 is the new 20.
There are no other celebrity children that can top the adultness of Kingston Rossdale. This is why I have awarded him with the “#1 Pet Peeve: Children Dressed as Adults Award”.
Just to prove my point, I’ll let you enjoy another photo (left). This is young Kingston as he leaves his rehearsal space in West Hollywood. He plays guitar and sings for a Village People cover band, “The Macho Men”.
This photo reminds me of the movie Big Daddy where Frankenstein (Julian) is allowed to pick out whatever he wants to wear. I believe he walks out of the house in a mix of aquatic gear and business attire. I could be wrong. Tell me if I am. Either way this is just awful.
There is no possible way to grade Kingston Rossdale. I don’t know whether to give him an F or an A+. There’s just too much going on to tally any kind of points. Made-Up Grade: Q+-
