Kids model Grammy fashions worn by Taylor Swift, Madonna, and more
ToddleWood is back!
All of the Grammys good, bad, and WTF? fashion moments — Madonna’s pimp cane, Pharrell’s hat, Paula Patton’s rabid zebra-print dress to name just a few — have been immortalized in kid-size glamor shots.
Founded by former advertising executive-turned-photographer Tricia Messeroux, the photo project imagines everyday kids as A-list celebrities, historic figures, and more recognizable icons. The idea was born in 2008, when Messeroux decided to shoot her then-three year old daughter, Skylar.
“My process now is to think about what the look that I want to achieve is, so it needs to be an iconic celebrity or a political figure or someone notable, or a moment in time,” Messeroux told EW last year. “The Grammys have some of the most outrageous outfits, which for someone like, me is exciting.”
Click through the gallery to see the pint-sized versions of Madonna, Pharrell, Katy Perry, Paula Patton, and more Grammy styles.
Madonna in Ralph Lauren
Madge told Ryan Seacrest that her son David deserved the credit for her beautifully tailored tuxedo. Who was responsible for the wide-brimmed hat, pimp cane, and Michael Jackson glove?
Robin Thicke in Giorgio Armani and Paula Patton in Nicolas Jebran
Patton’s rabid zebra-print mess of a dress took top spot on many worst dressed lists, but somehow it looks cute on the kid.
Katy Perry in Valentino
Perry’s music note gown struck the perfect note of quirky and glamorous.
Pharrell in Vivienne Westwood
It didn’t take long for that hat to take on a life of its own, so including it in the ToddleWood fashion parade was a no-brainer. “There was no way I wasn’t going to get this hat, I mean Pharell into Toddlewood,” Messeroux wrote. This hat was surprisingly easy to find but incredibly difficult to model into the exact look.
Cyndi Lauper in Alexander McQueen
We’re used to seeing Cyndi look like a pile of laundry on the red carpet, but the pop icon looked perfectly polished in this black cape and statement necklace. Lauper’s doppelganger nailed the punk rock pose.
Miguel in Saint Laurent
The best part of the kid version isn’t the leather pants, it’s the faux sculpted facial hair.
Taylor Swift in Gucci Premiere
The child-size version of Swift’s chainmail-inspired lamé and crystal mesh Gucci gown would make the perfect pageant dress.
