When it comes to fashion week, we’re used to seeing stylishly clad women sweeping the streets of New York, Milan, London and Paris in highly covetable clobber, hoping to catch the attention of the fleet of photographers waiting outside the shows.
But the breakout street style star of this year’s Paris Fashion Week has come in the unlikely form of Ayla, the three-year-old daughter of Lebanese influencer, Nour Arida.
While most fashion fans have to wait until their teens at least (remember how ground-breaking 13-year-old Tavi Gevinson seemed?) before attending a show, or have a parent who is a designer in the case of Harper Beckham, Nour and Ayla attended both the Ralph & Russo and Chloe shows together, perfectly coordinating their FROW looks in the process.
For Ralph & Russo, a label favoured by Meghan Markle and many women in the Middle East thanks to its standalone store in The Dubai Mall, the sartorially in-tune pair donned statement trench coats that perfectly complemented each other.
While at Chloe, both Nour and Ayla wore head-to-toe looks by the French brand - Nour in a mini dress and coat, Ayla in a horse print trouser suit and sunglasses - and even styled their hair in identical top knots. So far, so fashion, and Nour took to Instagram to joke that Ayla was taking her newfound status as bona fide street style star “seriously”.
“Arriving to Chloé with my little one @chloe (and Ayla taking herself too seriously),” she captioned a short video, which showed them being swarmed by photographers on the streets of the French capital.
The proud mama frequently posts pictures of her and Ayla posing together on her Instagram page, so we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before the tot gets an account of her own.
And if that Chloe co-ord suit is a hint of anything to go by, this little girl means serious fashion business.
