In between acting and plans to write a child-rearing manual, Kelly Rutherford has added another career to her repertoire — model mom!
On April 14, the Gossip Girl actress and her two adorable tots (Hermés, 4½, and Helena, 22 months) made their runway debut at the Fendi Children’s Spring/Summer 2011 fashion show at the brand’s New York City flagship store.
Rutherford, who also co-hosted the event with Divalysscious Moms, strutted her stuff down the catwalk in a bright orange dress paired with purple and yellow heeled sandals, while her children lit up the stage in a gray suit and sundress, respectively.
The show, which marks the U.S. launch of the company’s first kids collection, featured 34 chicly-dressed boys and girls wearing playful takes on grown-up pieces including a classic trench, a Liberty-print ruffle blouse, rain-proof poncho and clean-cut jeans.
Attendees, big and small, also enjoyed Ilene Miriam cupcakes and fresh fruit smoothies and snacks courtesy of Plum Organics. Even better? A percentage of the event’s proceeds were donated to the American Red Cross Japan Relief. See more of the line at fendi.com!
