5 'kids' that are cooler than I will ever be

I have noticed more recently than usual there are influx of tiny people that are just, well, cool. I don't just mean famous people I mean girls who wander around towns on a Saturday linked arm-in-arm with £5 in their pocket and a determination to catch the local lads attention.

I once saw a girl she must've only been 15 in a leather jacket I had drooled over in All Saints only a few hours earlier and some boots from Topshop that I had decided were impracticle and too expensive to purchase. £325 for the jacket and £95 for the boots, not to mention the fact she had long hair that flips (bit like Barbie's pony) and that expression that screams 'VAGUELY AMUSED AND CONSIDERABLY RICHER THAN YOU'.

It's the attitude of the younger folk that astounds me, they are so confident and self assured. I was a nervous wreck at that age with a beyond bad haircut that made me look like a crazy cat lady, adidas tracksuit and a face full of spots.

Time has moved on thank god, and although I don't march around town with a catwalk demeanour I am more confident in my appearance and myself but there are some kids which I will never be cooler than....

1. Willow Smith

Willow is the 9 year old daughter of super famous, talented and beautiful couple Will and Jada Pinket-Smith. It was genetically predisposed that Willow would be a cool kid, but at 9?! Willow is already a bit of a fashion icon, check out her animal hareem pants and jacket teamed with biker boots - BANG on trend. On Monday, Willow and Jada sat front row at the Emporio Armani fashion show in Milan. Not content with being a fashionista at 9, Willow is also pursuing a music career under Jay Z's label and her first single 'Whip My Hair' will be released soon.

2. Lourdes Leon

Lourdes, who only really needs to be known by one name much like her Mum, Madonna is thirteen and already VERY cool.

The two have collabed on a fashion line for Macy's called Material Girl. The style is reminiscent of 1980's Madonna and includes clothes, shoes, jewellry and handbags. Prices are generally below $40 and the fashions are aimed at the teen market.
Lourdes or Lola, has also launched a fashion blog for the upcoming line and has already written "And the 80’s are another huge obsession of mine, which is totally amazingly awesome because Material Girl…HELLO! It’s like 80’s themed, which pretty much rocks, so yeah." TOTALLY RAD.
3. Taylor Momsen

Lourdes leads me on to my next 'cool kid'. Taylor Momsen or better known for her role as Jenny Humphrey from Gossip Girl (xoxo). 17 year old Taylor has shunned her Barbie blonde image and now taken on her rock chick persona as she fronts rock-pop band The Pretty Reckless.

Taylor now has a penchant for black panda eyes, lingerie, stocking and hooker shoes with dollar bills in - her mum must be proud, but let's face it - she's pretty cool.

4. Suri Cruise

Suri is the daughter of multi millionaire Hollywood heavyweights Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and this little girl has it made. Although I don't envy having to be brought up under Scientology rules or with a Dad that jumped on Oprah's couch, I do envy the lifestyle of this cutie!
Suri had a bob age 2 that suddenly became as famous as the Posh Spice 'Pob' that caused media hysteria and made me jealous.

Doesn't Suri look quite the little lady on a trip out and about? flawless fashionista with kitten heels at the age of 3. Don't let looks decieve you, apparently Suri is a big fan of  car racing and discovered it on television. So what did Tom and Katie do? They bought her a custom-made $30,000 miniature replica of an Indy race car, of course. What would my parent's have got me? a cardboard box with felt tipped wheels and interior.....

5. Justin Bieber

I ain't got Bieber fever, I cannot begin to describe how annoying I find Justin Bieber, but yes, sadly, he's cooler than me. Justin is Canadian, 16 years old and one of the best known faces on the planet but does have ridiculous hair.

Bieber was first discovered in 2008 on YouTube by Scooter Braun who happens to be partners with RnB star Usher, after meeting with them he was offered a recording contract with Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG). Not before being in a bidding war with Justin Timberlake's label... oh the stress, poor lad.

Since then he has gone onto sell millions of records (going Platinum in the States), create literally an army of teenage girl fans, have a bromance with Usher, flirty pictures with Kim Kardashian and regularly be a trending topic on Twitter... C.O.O.L.

Love, SGS xoxo
