Alicia Keys, start singing a new tune because your little boy is on fire!
On Monday, the singer’s 3½-year-old son Egypt Daoud made his modeling debut during the Ralph Lauren‘s 2014 Children’s Runway Show at the New York Public Library.
And, just like his mama, this little charmer knows how to work a crowd.
Walking the runway in the brand’s herringbone jacket, navy dog intarsia sweater and tartan wool pants, Egypt topped off his dapper style with his signature mohawk.
And cheering him on from the sidelines were his proud parents. “Egys first runway show!!!!! Wooooowwww!!!!! My lil baby!!!!” Keys captioned a photo of her grinning guy walking hand-in-hand with designer Ralph Lauren.

As the mini models paraded down the walkway with Lauren leading the way, the crowd clapped and whistled.
“Egypt said to tell uncle Kanye he’s walking with that Ralph tho. Our lil guy 1st show,” dad Swizz Beatz wrote, along with a behind-the-scenes snapshot (and video!) of his son getting fitted before the show. “He was feeling the vibes today.”
Hosted by actress Uma Thurman, the fashion show included a performance by the cast of Matilda the Musical and officially kicked off the brand’s literacy program, which will focus on providing more books to children.
