Fashion Week: This Season’s Must-Have — A Stylin’ Tot

Gwen Stefani’s son Kingston is hardly the only kid kickin’ it at Fashion Week.

From the looks of things yesterday, forget about that new Fendi or Chanel bag: The must-have accessory of the season is an adorable — and, of course, fashionably-dressed — tyke. We counted six kiddies at the Michael Kors show and saw at least another half-dozen toddlers toted around the tents by their moms (and dads). Cosmo accessories editor Danielle Levy held 2 1/2-year-old daughter Gemma — who was sporting pearls and a lace skirt — on her lap in the fourth row.

Levy explained the tot’s presence, saying, “It’s Sunday, so I have no help.” (Hubby was home with their other three-month-old daughter). In response to the influx of youngsters, one fashionista sniped, “Last season it was dogs, this season it’s kids.” Tell that to designer Reem Acra, who did her post-show runway bow toting a miniscule dog dressed in purple taffeta.
