Elisabeth Röhm: Tomboy Easton ‘Loves Her Converse’

Elisabeth Röhm may know how to work a red carpet, but when it comes to shopping, her 2½-year-old daughter Easton August is her first priority.

As much as Röhm enjoys shopping for the season’s hottest designs for herself — Diane Von Furstenberg’s fall collection is a favorite — the actress, 37, is more concerned with picking out the latest threads for her little girl.

“I’m thinking a lot about what I need to get for her [for fall], ” Röhm told PEOPLE Wednesday at ARCADE Boutique and Children’s Institute Autumn Party, held at The London West Hollywood Hotel.

“She’s a great dresser. She’s a tomboy and she likes her Converse hightops,” the former Law & Order star shares. “She’s flexible.”

Her clothing preferences aren’t all that’s on Easton’s mind — chatting it up with mom is tops on her list as well.

“She’s learning to talk and she’s really getting into music. She’s advancing really quick.” said Röhm. “She’s 2½ [and] she’s becoming a person!”

Easton’s two favorite phrases? “‘No, Mommy’ and ‘I don’t understand what’s happening!'” laughs Röhm.

Interesting. No comments on this post. Yet when Angeina discussed Shiloh’s tomboy style, everyone jumped all over her!

Elle on

When you name your DAUGHTER Easton would you expect her to be super feminine? I don’t care for girls dressing like boys and I certainly don’t like the name Easton on a girl. Not a fan!

PS – I think celebrity baby blog posts this kind of stuff to get lots of comments on their website. Things they think sound “controversial”.

Or maybe it’s just a cute story with a proud mom talking about the latest with her daughter? No need to read deeper into the story than what’s there. Seems like lately some people come into the comment section just looking for trouble. Sad.

Elle, what’s controversial about a girl being a tomboy? You say it as if it’s a bad thing.

Also, I find it comical that you believe her name has anything to do with it. Off the top of my head, I know two girls named Logan and Emerson who are complete “girly girls” while my niece, Olivia, wouldn’t wear a dress if you paid her.

This isn’t 1952, here. Rigid gender stereotypes are ridiculous.

I love the last quote from Easton: I don’t understand what’s happening! LOL – poor little mite, the world’s moving so fast for you.

As far as tomboyishness/Converse/Angelina Jolie go, the comments on AJ threads are less about the fact that she talks about Shiloh’s clothes than the fact that Shiloh is clearly dressed in boys’ clothing in almost all (if not all) recent pap pix of her. I personally don’t mind how Shiloh is dressing – she has clothes on? Great – but others do find it offensive. Since we have no picture of Easton’s tomboyishness, no one can quite complain because many, many little girls have Converse shoes.

That being said, last time I saw a picture of this little girl, she looked just like mom, blond hair, blue eyes, round face and all. Adorable.

Kristin- I agree! Clearly Moms & Babies posted this because this is a site about celebrity babies….and this article is about a celebrity baby! 🙂

Not to stir up trouble, but doesn’t she have a second middle name of Anthony?

The most important thing is that her mom obviously loves her, not that she has a traditionally male name or anything else!

CelebBabyLover on

Sarah M.- Nope. Anthony is actually Easton’s LAST name (Anthony is her father Ron Wooster’s real last name. :)). Her middle name is August. 🙂

Thanks, CelebBabyLover, for the clarification. I had seen it written many places as Easton August Anthony Wooster. I was a bit confused!
