Ok, we know we said that the glow-in-the-dark dresses at Alexander Wang were the highlight of our New York Fashion Week, but Oscar de la Renta‘s first-ever kid’s show definitely gave those show-stopping specimens a run for their money.
First off, you have never seen a happier-looking front row. Usually it’s all sunglasses and studied nonchalance (and sometimes some overeagerness to bolt out afterwards), but not so when there are adorable tots walking down the runway! The stylish, uptown attendees were all smiles as a bevy of kids toddled, walked, and scooted (yes, scooted!) their way across the designer’s 42nd street showroom. Then there were the clothes: for Oscar ladies-in-training, the designer offered up teensy party frocks bedecked with bows, ikat sundresses, and a tutu or two. For the boys, there were crisp button-up shirts, cuffed shorts, and brightly-colored sweaters draped around the shoulders. The Jitney may be in the off-season now, but these munchkins were all set for a jaunt to the Hamptons.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
