This kid is so cool! My favourite bit is the curl in her hair – she looks like a tough cookie, way too busy to brush her hair. Once upon a time, I think that was me … but now, my red hair is straight :(
What is it about red-headed children that is so absolutely adorable? Is it because true redheads are fairly rare? Or because, when you see a redhead child, you know there's very little chance that hair comes from a bottle?
In any case, she is adorable. Love the awkward foot.
I suppose this is a serious case of "start 'em young"? What a lovely-looking girl! It's great that she's not trying to look like an adult, she's just a seriously stylish child, I love her shoes-and the way she's arranged her feet- especially….oh, and that beautiful hair! http://fashionregardless.blogspot.com/
Oh, she a future model or actress, isn't she ? I love the red hair and the attitude. Bravo ! It's quite amazing to see how natural she is even knowing that she's taken a picture of. Great shot ! (And i like the "clin d'oeil" behind her : "kidrobot". She's not a robot at all, she's full of life ! But the colors matche).
I love it. Not because of the fashion (which is also great) but because she is a girl dressed like a girl, not a teen or a woman. She looks fantastic, and I can see her self-confidence shining right through!
Kids fashion is so great. They always look comfortable. I'm a piano teacher, so I get to work with kids a lot. Sometimes I try to dress like them a bit. Leggings are a big hit with little girls, but i refuse to wear crocs!!!
Love it! Such a cute little girl. Love her hair and the whole outfit. Good to see that there are no Disney logos or characters on her dress or anything like that. You can only stomache so much Hannah Montana.
this is wonderful! i'm so glad you take notice of kids – they are not always oblivious or without fashion sense. i love kids who dress themselves and have obvious style. i had much better style as a kid – i wish i had the guts to wear what i want to wear now!
Right on! As a redhead, I had it pounded into me that I COULD NOT WEAR RED or anything remotely smacking of it. The red shoelaces, the pink sabre-tooth shaped wedges and her hair (not to mention the lips and her ruddy knees) are a great antidote to "Thou shall not wear red."
To me, the waist seems too low and the skirt too short. However, the fabric is fun, and the shoes are a kick, and the accessories are cute, attractive and age-appropriate. Quite a self-possessed young miss.
i love it when kids develop their own sense of style very early on. I try to help my step-daughter refine her choices (she's 5) but for the most part when left to her own devices she's a great outfit picker. I like this girl's attitude as well. really great. and the way her ankle is popped to the side, slightly unsure that she's cool with this. and in front of the kids store. I love this.
This little girl is amazing. I wish my mom would have bought me cool outfits like that when I was her age!! It also reminds me of the pictures of kids you got in your book; those photos were my favorites. And like you said, "Some people are just born with it"! Fabulous, so glad you got her photo!
She is gorgeous and I love the confident way she looks straight down the camera and yet there is that little twist to the foot and the fingers lightly curled that stop her from being too forward. let's hope she retains those qualities as she grows up. a beautiful study, thank you.
Oh my gosh. Where do I get a kid that cute? Is she not just the most adorable thing? And her shoestrings match her hair! Awesome. And I have to, um, disagree with kids not having their own taste. I have tons of kiddies in my family, and they all have very distinct tastes in clothes.
I love that you are publishing a mix of people these days, and that not all of them look quite perfect, yet every single one looks totally like themselves. And yes, this is how fantastically amazing children dress: slightly messy with a wonderful sense of play. I disagree with Audrey: I don't see parent here at all.
When a girl is that age, most parents have very little say in what a kid will wear. This is her personal style, I have a feeling. I also see a little smile and love her lips matching her laces. Go girls!!!
Four redheads in a weeks Sarto! This is great! @notsurebut…redheads get a lot of negative coverage in Australia, where I'm from –even made fun of in TV commercials, general teasing and bullying and the whole "ginge" thing. Yuk. But when you see little girls like this you know that the teasing and bullying must come from a place of jealousy. RED POWER!
Kids should never be made to smile for a photograph, It's against their grain. They should be defiant, or serious, or mistrustful, or they should be laughing a splitting-their sides laugh, but not smiling, unless caught unawares, and smiling to themselves. You portrait the young, as you do the old : with truth.
Oh oh… pangs of my baby clothes addiction is raising it's greedy head. Love kids clothes that look like shrunken adults, but better. Good job my daughter is grown now. My credit cards are safe… until I have grandchildren anyway.
I love the picture, I find the girl very cute…..but how can she be compared to Tavi…which way.. Tavi's success is incomparable!!! and moreover she's growing big and popular…her journey is all set from cuteness to hotness….:-)
I love how her face says confidence but her feet say insecure…overall its an intriguing look & to have style at a young age shows self identity already unless the parents had helped her of course haha.
Awesome! Love her stare and big ol' sneakers. (Glad that she's not being taught crap about making her feet/self look delicate and minimized.) And love the age-appropriateness of her ensemble even more.
I love to see you include children. I work in a children's clothing store and it's fascinating to see the way they put things together as they're developing their sense of style. This little girl has such defiance and strength. Wonderful!
Best shot of the year so far. Fantastic face and expression held on a powerful neck, great top heavy tension in the subject, crooked horizon line and all of it visually balanced on that one crooked ankle. Great moment — it and she are a gem.
She definitely has style. Long way to go but I can't wait to see how she'll be in the later years. Also the way she posed her feet is great! Brings more childish, cuteness into it and so does the Kidrobot background!! :)
I read that in a few hundred years, there'll be no more (natural) redheads left on the planet – recessive gene, etc. Seeing photos like this make me think that we need to collect redheaded genetic material and freeze it for future use, not trying to save and store heritage seeds! It would be such a shame if this kind of beauty went extinct…
