Who knew that Beyonce's clothing line, House of Dereon does well enough to brand out into children's wear? I didn't, but this advertising image tells a very interesting story. I'm really surprised at how grown up these young girls clothing is. We all played dress up as kids, put on our mothers lipsticks and slipped into her high heels, but at the end of the day nothing was out size and our parents wouldn't dream of letting us out of the house like that. But my how a decade or so later, children can be dressed up with their noses powdered as if they're going to high school. I wonder what kind of message the Knowles are putting out there. It's one thing to play dress up and put on your mother's lipstick and high heels, but to create clothes so children can get the look in their size?
