14 Adorable Photos of Celebrity Kids Playing Dress-Up

Celia San Miguel | Sep 13, 2016 Celebrities

When you're a little girl, mom's closet can seem like a magical portal filled with bright and shiny baubles, sky-high stilettos, silky soft dresses, and all things fabulous. When your mom is a celebrity, chances are her closet really is pretty magical, so playing dress-up is all the more alluring an activity. When there are rows and rows of shoes, drawers brimming with lip gloss tubes, and shelves lined with posh purses, it's easy for any kid's imagination to go wild!

From Jessica Simpson's daughter Maxwell wearing her mom's lip gloss to Blue Ivy digging into Beyonce's makeup, these photos of celebrity kids playing dress-up will melt your heart.

  • Jessica Simpson's Daughter Maxwell


    In a March 2015 interview with Extra, Jessica Simpson chatted about her daughter Maxwell's love of makeup — and her tendency to ransack Mommy's stash of expensive lip gloss. "She has completely taken over my makeup," Simpson said. "Her purse, which is probably like $3, has all of my Chanel lip glosses." Maxi Drew has good taste! In November 2014, Simpson shared this photo of a puckered-up Maxwell, then 2, with the caption, "Someone got into Mommy's lipgloss #Poser." Sure, she colored outside the lines a bit, but she still did a better job applying gloss than many an adult!

  • Adriana Lima's Daughter Valentina

    Supermodel Adriana Lima's 6-year-old daughter Valentina may have some big shoes to fill, but she's certainly up for the challenge! At the age of 4, Valentina was already practicing her poses in her fashionista mom's black ankle boots. 

  • Katherine Heigl's Daughter Nancy Leigh


    When little girls want to wear mommy's jewelry, they want to wear it all — and at the same time, if possible! That was certainly the case when Katherine Heigl's daughter Nancy Leigh, now 7, posed for this Instagram photo, in which she's wearing her mom's chunky beaded necklace around her neck, a second golden necklace propped atop her head in lieu of a tiara. She looks like a princess and totally knows it!

  • Kim Kardashian's Daughter North


    Didn't think it would happen this soon...my baby girl stealing my shoes. At least she has good taste #Balenciaga 😂😂😂

    You know the expression "like a kid in a candy store"? Well, if you're North West and it's fashion that gives you a major rush, then your mom's closet might just be more thrilling than any candy shop. Kim recently posted this photo of Nori, now 3, playing in her metallic Balenciaga boots. Yes, the boots are taller than Nori, but she had to at least try to walk in them!

  • Tiffani Thiessen's Daughter Harper


    Trying Mommy's curlers

    Twenty years after the final episode of Saved by the Bell aired, Kelly Kapowski's hairstyle remains iconic — there are even tutorials on how to recreate that voluminous mane with those beachy waves. Even Tiffani Thiessen's daughter, Harper, now 6, seems to want a volume boost: Check her out in this 2014 photo playing with one of her mom's giant Velcro curlers.

  • Mariah Carey's Daughter Monroe


    Monroe Cannon might just be following in her diva mom's footsteps! Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's daughter, now 5, has been practicing her stride in high heels since she was 2 and a 1/2. When this picture was taken and posted on Instagram, little Monroe had woken up in the middle of the night and decided to try on her mom's Rene Caovilla pumps. Perhaps she was dreaming about shoes? 

  • Jessica Alba's Daughters Honor & Haven

    Actress and Honest Beauty founder Jessica Alba's oldest daughter, Honor, clearly knows how to channel her fashionista mom's effortless, Boho style in a loose-fitting printed dress and hat, while younger sis Haven opts for a bright yellow blazer and black fedora (which we can totally picture Alba wearing with boyfriend jeans). Solid work, ladies!

  • Beyonce's Daughter Blue Ivy


    A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

    Just weeks ago, Blue Ivy shut down the red carpet alongside her mom Beyonce at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, but that's not the first time the 4-year-old wowed us with her fashion and makeup skills. Earlier this year, Bey shared this photo of Blue playing with her makeup. Like her mom, Blue is quite the trendsetter, perfectly placing colored rhinestones over her brows, putting on gloss like a pro, and experimenting with new liquid liner looks.

  • Kourtney Kardashian's Daughter Penelope


    Apparently, all the women in the Kardashian/Jenner family are obsessed with shoes — right down to Kourtney's daughter Penelope, 3. In this photo Penelope is walking into her mom's closet wearing her high-heeled buckled booties and a veil, then standing in front of the shoe-lined shelves, staring in amazement. We may not be 3, but we're pretty sure Kourtney's shoe collection would leave us awestruck too!

  • Viola Davis's Daughter Genesis

    A photo posted by Viola Davis (@violadavis) on

    The star of How to get Away With Murder is a formidable role model for her 6-year-old daughter, Genesis, who famously opted to dress up as her mom for Halloween last year. She donned a white frock like the one her mom wore on the night of her Emmy win. Here, Genesis models her mom's diamond-encrusted Neil Lane jewelry and tries out her own red carpet poses. 

  • Gisele Bundchen's Daughter Vivian



    A photo posted by Gisele Bündchen (@gisele) on

    When she was just a year old and still wearing onesies, Gisele Bundchen's daughter Vivian, now 3, was already living by Marilyn Monroe's philosophy that if you "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world." In this heart-warming pic, she slips her tiny feet into her mom's ballet flats and gazes downward in awe.
