These Kids Work the Red Carpet Better Than We Could
We get a little excited about awards season and all that red carpet goodness. Right now we’re in the midst of it (the SAG Awards are today, people!) and besides the usual dress roundups and hair and beauty highlights, we appreciate a crazy creative take on coverage. You know, like kids elbowing out the stars for best dressed, getting involved in the red carpet recreations game and totally winning.
The new leader of the mini-celeb red carpet lookalike movement is New York-based photographer Tricia Messeroux. She started the tradition back in 2008 in her photography studio Toddlewood by recreating pint-size versions of the best Grammys and Oscars looks with identical red carpet looks. This year, she took on the Golden Globes — who knew George and Amal could look this cute:
During major award shows like the Golden Globes, the Oscars and the Grammys, Tricia will dive into the red carpet looks for the best of the best (just like us ;). Once she finds her faves she puts out an open casting call for models and, keeping true to the name, the tiny doppelgangers typically range in age from 3 to 6. She works with a local designer to put together toddler-appropriate versions of the stars’ gowns or tuxes. Once the perfect model is found and the outfit is ready, best dressed Golden Globes attendees like Kerry Washington and Emma Stone adorably come to life.
We applaud how accurate the tiny celebs look (good touch on the mini Kevin Hart facial hair + Amal gloves) and want to throw in some model requests for the rest of awards season: Mayhem + the M&D Twins.
Make sure to check out more of the Toddlewood mini-celeb red carpet looks here.
