Move over, Gisele, Naomi and Kate — a crop of new kids have stolen your thunder.
Kiddie Styles in Dyker Heights gave fashion week at Lincoln Center a run for its money on Saturday when pint-sized fashionistas strutted their stuff and modeled togs from the store’s in-house collection to rave reviews.
The cute-as-a-button models — tots of customers — wowed the crowd at the children’s wear store on 81st Street and 13th Avenue, donning designer duds from, among others, Mish Mish, Belly Frog and Tutu, Piccolo Baccio and Christie Helene, showcasing casual to formal wear with some seasonal showstoppers sprinkled in, including Halloween and holiday-themed apparel.
Snazzy Bensonhurst siblings Ava and Sophia Mattiello twirled on stage like pros, Ava in a Sarah Louise dress and Sophia in a Mish Mish ensemble.
Boys also took the store’s red carpet in stride, modeling shirts, pants and other tyke trends as loved ones snapped photos and cooed from the sidelines.
The promotional show is the first of many to come, promised owner Maria Arena, who distributed discounts and freebies to sweeten the day.
The gear gig presented her with an opportunity to show how the clothes look when actually worn, she added.
“You can only see so much on a rack.”
