As creative partner for monthly outfit club FabKids, Christina Applegate has found her muse in 2-year-old daughter Sadie.

“I’m completely influenced by her,” the actress, 41, tells PEOPLE exclusively on the set of the brand’s Spring/Summer photoshoot.

“[She’s] a tough little kid, so she’ll wear a skirt with her awesome Converse or her little motorcycle boots. She’s got this yin and yang of her fashion, with her feminine and her masculine, and because of that, we came up with these great rocker girl pants with these frilly, fruity tops [for the line].”

Sadie is responsible for so many of the brand’s cutest designs that Applegate has no plans on curbing her budding trendsetter‘s independence when it comes to fashion.

“I’m watching her build her sense of being, her sense of what she wants to represent herself as in the world, and I love that.”

And that includes accepting her little girl’s unlikely style choices and inspirations, including The Wizard of Oz.

“She wants to dress up like the Lollipop Guild every day,” jokes Applegate.

I like Christina Applegate (from what I have seen of her) but to say that a 2 year old’s fashion choices inspires you is a bit over the top! My daughter is incredibly picky about what she wears and has been for a while, but at 2, a child might as well close their eyes and randomly pick something out of the closet. I have never seen a 2 year old fashionista (hate that word by the way) without some help from Mom. Sorry to be so negative, this just irked me for some reason.

I also really like her persona normally, but this just seems odd. I have a 2 year old who also is very picky and funny about what she wears, but I really doubt its because she is considering how she wants to represent herself to the world. In fact, I don’t think 2 year olds, cognitively, have that much of a sense of image or how people beyond their intimate circle react to them nor how clothes could or could not be a part of that. I mean, that’s silly. They may have preferences (mine would wear one particular Mickey Mouse t-shirt from my parents every single day if we let her and lives in pink crocs that I hate), but they aren’t styling themselves as a representation of their person to the world.

I’ve got to agree with the above posters. I hate when parents give their children overly adult attributes (such as all the celebs who talk about the wisdom of their “little buddhas” when they are 1 year old).
