Sometimes people email me and they ask my opinion on children’s clothing. And generally, I’m of the opinion that kids should wear what they want. There are no rules*
But. Oh. My. God. Where was Nina Garcia when Heidi Klum was designing Truly Scrumptious. I know Babies R Us isn’t exactly the same demographic as Barney’s, but seriously? Heidi, c’mon. Do you really expect me to believe that Leni was ever running around in monster print overalls?
Truly scrumptious, in a word?
And the line was like the giant appliqued elephant in the room. No one was saying it, but the reason Heidi wanted the Project Runway designers to create the final piece of the collection was because it needed help.
Okay, and maybe to shill just a little.
But this isn’t a blog about kids’ fashion, it’s a blog about TV fashion.
So, thank goodness for new mom Hilary Duff sequin leggings. I loved them so much, I almost gave birth.
Not for nothing, but take those leggings, Heidi, make them for toddlers and call it a day.
No monster applique necessary.

*except that children shouldn’t dress like prostitutes. Or wear $80 jeans. Or belly shirts. Or track suits that say Juicy on the butt. And no giant animal intarsias. You get it right? Kids shouldn’t dress like the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Or Rachel Berry. Rant over.
