Tweens and Fashion Week: The New Tween Style Stars

Fashion Week kicked-off in New York today, and there's a ton going on. We couldn't help but notice that a slew of tween movie stars are now being dressed by MAJOR designers, and this is going to seriously expand the exposure tweens have to big-name fashion (more so than even Project Runway).

Here's a Who's Who of who's wearing who among tween celebs:
  • Chloe Moretz, age 13, has recently worn Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Christian Dior, and Chanel (!)
  • 9-year old Willow Smith has accompanied her parents to European fashion shows for years now. She was interviewed this week by Teen Vogue about her style (we call it fierce!) and cites Dolce and Gabbana as a favorite.
  • Elle Fanning is only 12 and already wearing Marchesa and Rodarte.
  • Hailee Steinfeld is now 14 but already Oscar-nominated for Best Supporting Actress for "True Grit" (did you know that she's in EVERY frame of that film?). She's been dressed by Prabal Gurung and Prada.
  • Kiernan Shipka of "Mad Men" fame is 11 years old and favors the young silhouettes of Papo d'Anjo.
  • First Tween Malia Obama wore New York designer Chris Benz to the Chinese State Dinner earlier this month.
The above list is for red carpet occasions only as tweens generally keep it cool, casual and comfortable - but it IS interesting to note how much more attention is being paid to tween fashion of late.

Which other tween stars have great fashion sense?
