Tinseltown’s tiny tots are making headlines.

KARACHI: We’ve seen their famous mommies and daddies — in films, magazines and even on the red carpet -sporting glamorous designer couture, and now Hollywood’s little ones are also hopping and crawling about wearing exquisite clothing and matching accessories.

Gone are the days when children were meant to be seen and not heard. Nowadays, children are quite vocal in expressing their feelings and celebrity tots are no less. With Jennifer Lopez’s twins, Max and Emme making their modelling debut as the faces for Gucci’s new children’s line when they were only two-and-a-half, to Suri Cruise tottering around in heels, these famous kids have been making headlines.

Suri Cruise

The five-year-old daughter of TomKat (Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes) has been the talk of the town for quite a while, owing to her elaborate designer wardrobe, which some fashion experts’ estimate is worth approximately £2 million, reports dailymail.co.uk. Then there is also her vibrant make-up collection. Like most little girls, Suri is fascinated with cosmetics and has been seen wearing nail polish and red lipstick very often. While some are criticising her parents for allowing her to wear heels and questioning whether the little Cruise is growing up too fast, Katie Holmes has defended her decisions and told American TV show Access Hollywood, “Like every little girl, she loves my high heels. I found them for her and she loves them.”

Harper Seven Beckham

She may be only two months old, but Harper Seven Beckham, daughter of ace footballer David Beckham and former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham, has already beaten stars such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Justin Bieber to top the list of hot celebrities under 25. InStyle’s Hot 100 list includes some of the most famous and impressive youngsters and adults, but the tiny new baby of Victoria and David has been deemed the most powerful of them all. “Will she be a pop star, designer or sportswoman? Either way, Posh’s daughter inherits a gaggle of hunky older brothers and one heck of a wardrobe,” the Daily Mail quoted the British magazine as saying. Baby Harper has also been seen strolling around NYC with her 37-year-old mommy Posh, who revealed, “She [Harper] loved Prada. It was if she was saying, ‘Mummy I’m home!’”.

Mason Dash Disick

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s son, Mason, has been born to fashion conscious parents who are even more conscious about their son. Kardashian, coming from a family infamous for their high-strung reactions to any incident in their lives, was seen rushing her 21-month-old son to a plastic surgeon with his entire face covered by a blanket, after he fell and bumped his nose. The good news is that it didn’t look like the toddler needed to have much work done as he was spotted out in New York City on Friday with his mother, sporting a small bandage on his nose and smiling as usual.
