Ralph Lauren presented the 2014 Children’s Runway Show at the iconic NY Public Library last night. The event was hosted by Uma Thurman in support of literacy at the at the New York Public Library. The girls and I got decked in head to toe Ralph Laurent to check out the fashions.
Our review? A big thumbs up. The girls wanted everything. One veered towards the more princessy gowns and the other loved the layered looks--patchwork dresses with tweedy blazers. Check out the video:
Alicia Keys’ son Egypt made his modeling debut in the runway show, he and the puppies were the cutest. And Ralph himself cam out for the grand finale. This fashion event is one of the few things I take the girls too and the rare occasion when I let them get photographed. The brand is so interwoven in my life, I just can't resist. There would be no Momtrends without Ralph Lauren!
Another reason to take the girls? The celebrities. They loved seeing Madison Beers and of course the Matildas. This year the charity partner was a literacy program. Guests enjoyed an exclusive performance by the cast of Matilda the Musical and helped Ralph Lauren kick off a literacy program committed to boosting literacy for children in need by providing access to books. Our goody bag was filled with reading goodness-The Book Thief on audio, and Roald Dahl's Matilda.
