The celebrity Kiddle ( a style co-ordinated Mother/Dad and child couple ) is a definite trend at the moment. In the visually literate world we live in mothers have become more confident about styling themselves as a unit with their children - It tends to be with their children under the age of 12. What it signifies I will ponder in depth later, but one thing is for sure Victoria Beckham, Liz Hurley, Gwen Stephanie, and Katie Holmes like to do it regularly with their off spring. Madonna, doe it rarely now as her daughter is older and has independent style preferences maybe . Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow and Claudia Schiffer have been known to do it once in a while and when they do it looks great.

The Kiddle trend could reflect the growing trend of division bluring of fashion across age groups and indicate closeness and nurture as well as creating a visually protective mechanism of camouflage as seen when the colours worn are the same, maybe saying this child is mine, is wearing 'my team' style, we are a tight unit.
It will be interesting to see how Kate Middleton dresses her Royal off spring when they arrive. My prediction is that she and William will start a family soon and there will be an announcement this year.
