I really don't think parents would buy those clothes. They're designer kiddy clothes..but kids grow out of them in months! I doubt any parent will spent $50 on a shirt just to see the kid grow out of it in a week. They're like mini versions of adult clothes. They're not for everyday wear, they're nice if you're looking for formal wear for special ocasions like weddings.
Plenty of people buy these clothes. Personally, I don't get it. Perhaps purchasing several pieces for special ocasssions, but other than that I don't believe that I would let my children (if I had any) where clothing like this daily.
I think that it is too conservative and not the least bit fun. I sometimes feel sorry for her little boys. They look like they're suffocating at times.
I agree that it is somewhat ridiculous for anyone to spend that kind of money or small children who are constantly growing and changing. I don't care how much designer infant, toddler and children's clothes the stores produce. I will never understand people who buy designer clothing for infants. Today it fits, tomorrow it's too small.
Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size. -Virginia Woolf
It is hard to put into words what I think of this wierd relationship. I like Pavlos, he is a sweet and caring person and it is written all over his face. He is genuine, and hardworking, he knows what he wants. As for M-C, I have a different outlook on her. I agree 110% with Julia that she is a "title snatcher". She has no respect, and it seems from the way that she carries herself, that she cares about no one but herself and what her image is like, or should I say, how she can throw her money around, etc.
I think that she runs the relationship period.... She seems to have no respect for Pavlos. It is her way or none at all. Etc.
Maybe we should start a new thread about how we view this relationship. It would be interesting to see what others think.
If I wanted my child to throw up on a cashmire sweater I would defanitly use my $$ (which I don't have) I would buy them. But when your average like myself and others, buying baby clothes at her prices is insane. One could only imagine the horror on any ordinary womans face when her baby throws up or poos on a brand new $100.00 cashmire sweeater. Thank God for Wal-mart!
This is not a good look for herj, head to toe........did you notice the last few buttons are unbuttoned (or is that part of the "look"). Remember those pictures from this summer when she had on the white blazer and skirt, it also was unbuttoned at the bottom (which I know someone else here pointed out at the time). Do you think she is pregnant, or is this not even worth mentioning?

I think if the latter few buttons were unbuttoned already during the summer because of a possible pregnancy, there would've been an announcement about Marie Chantal expecting her fourth child.
I think you're right about the buttons being unbuttoned because it's the "style."
With respect to the dress that MC is wearing at the wedding, I don't believe that she could button those last few buttons without the outfit looking too snug. With all of the ruffles on this outfit, I don't believe that the designer wanted the buttons to show and ruin the finished effect. (Just my own guess). There are photos dated 7/2003 of MC wearing a white jacket/blazer with a matching white skirt at a Christian Dior show. In those pictures, MC has the blazer totally buttoned and looks very trim & chic. I believe she is wearing the very same blazer at Anna Maria's christening with another skirt. MC's clothes are obviously well made and fitted to her figure. I would imagine that occasionally MC's weight could fluctuate by a few pounds every now and then. I certainly envy her figure after three children!
