Kids Be Cute: Lanvin and H&M Forcing Us to Care About Children
Jun 15, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Just look at those little punims! Ugh, I'm nauseous. Not gonna lie to ya, I've never liked kids. Even when I was a kid, I didn't much care for them. What, you have to run around screaming and laughing all the time? What's wrong with sitting down and quietly paging through a Vogue? However, with Lanvin's irressitibly cute new children's line and this mini-Benetton-esque ad for H&M's All for Children collection, my icy heart is beginning to melt. Slowly.
I mean, look at that little afro? And the little boy turning it on the left.Ten years from now, throw all of these damn kids on the runway and call it a fashion show. H&M lined up these diaper darlings for their All for Children initiative with UNICEF. These clothes go on sale in 160 H&M stores worldwide, with 25% of sales benefiting UNICEF projects to promote childrens rights to education and protection in vulnerable communities.
The clothes are adorable, particularly that orange number on the right worn by a young Karlie Kloss. But they have nothing on the Lanvin Petite clothes.

Apparently Lanvin doesn't believe in child labor laws because these kids are at work.
Popping out of a box?! Pensively sitting in a chair?! Braced against a wall in a trench?! These kids are editorial jumping at a Teen Vogue level.
After looking at these pics, I'm tempted to adopt a child and raise her to be the next supermodel of the world. But then I realized that they don't stay this cute forever. One day they're crawling in their baby heels and the next they're flashing their crotch and getting high on salvia.
