It's like they can't help themselves. In 2018, Kylie Jenner hit up the family Christmas Eve party in a floor-length, crystal-studded gown. Baby Stormi was seen in a matching onesie that was high on the style (but questionable on the comfort).
Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Cardi B, Farrah Abraham— they're all celebrity mothers who are known for their glam. Where the mother goes, though, so too does the baby. To be fair, most of these ladies start with the names. Kim's kids are named North, Saint, and Chicago. Cardi B famously told SNL that "anything else would've been basic" for her choice of Kulture.
An extra outfit totally works as an adult. Fame and fortune come with the chance to empty Louis Vuitton in one go. Mariah Carey even has the store shut down for her while she shops there, The Daily Mail reports.
This isn't about the grown-up outfits, though. Celebrity parents are dressing their kids in some of the most bizarre, extra outfits the world has ever seen. Sometimes, it's leathered; other times, it's head-to-toe glitter. The kind that makes anyone want to start scratching straight away.
Admittedly, the outfits make for great photos. If they're twinning, they might even make it into Vogue. Any mother will know that the reality is totally different, though. Spaghetti-flinging from a high chair doesn't exactly go with a lace-frilled, velour dress. It doesn't look like these celeb parents care, though.
In a collection of looks that show just how far these celebs will go, here are 20 extra outfits that celebrities actually made their kids wear.
20 NORTH WEST'S DISCO BALL DRESS
Given that Kim Kardashian was simply stepping out to dinner here in 2016, that's one extra outfit. Fashion Style Mag reports that Kim was heading to dinner with her BFF and "Food God," Jonathan Cheban. North West tagged along, of course. If anyone can make a dinner outing into a fashion show though, it's the great Kim K.
Disco ball glitters were the look here, although #Extra was the vibe. Put it this way– when your dress is so glittery, your face is actually bouncing off the material, you've earned yourself a mention. North didn't look too happy or comfortable here, although it could simply have been the shot. Not an outfit we'll forget.
19 THE STUFF KHLOÉ DRESSES TRUE IN
"My sweet angel." Those are the IG captions that Khloe Kardashian rightfully chooses for her adorable little girl, True. While this Kardashian kid is now being raised by solo parents (who's going to forget that drama), it's the outfits we're looking at, not the relationships.
Christmas Eve at the Kardashians is an event. It comes with all the glam in the world, and that includes the outfits. Look carefully at True, here. She's smiling, but that outfit is definitely something. The layers. The tutu. The turban-style headwear. Of course, only a Kardashian kid could pull it off. One to look at rather than try out, right?
18 WHEN JLO'S TWINS DIDN'T LOOK TOO COMFORTABLE
Jennifer Lopez is making all kinds of headlines. The Shades of Blue and Idol star is newly engaged to Alex Rodriguez, although at 49, Jen has been married three times already. Her twins, Max and Emme are growing up fast (and the outfits are joining them).
Athleisure-wear is mostly what we see Jen in, these days. Looking a touch like Ariana Grande at times, Jen's leggings and ponytails might be on-trend, but let's not forget what she's made her kids wear. While these twins are as stylish as their super-famous mom, they haven't always been subject to comfort. This red carpet appearance was just one such occasion.
17 WHEN KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN MADE #EXTRA AWESOME
Literally, no words for how badly we want this. When Kourtney Kardashian and her daughter, Penelope stepped into the Calabasas sunshine for some mommy and daughter time, the paparazzi were right on it. The reason? Well, mostly, because Kourt is a Kardashian.
The style police were onto this as fast as we were, though. "What would North do?" was the statement tee from Penelope. Clearly, a reference to her cousin, North West. Given that North seems to be running Hollywood already, the statement itself is actually pretty fitting. North and Penelope are total BFFs, so this extra outfit makes sense.
16 BEYONCÉ AND BLUE IVY
When Jay-Z is your husband and your joint net worth is listed as $1.16 billion by Forbes, you do as you please. Beyoncé has been "running this world" as the original "Independent Woman" for over a decade. She's a symbol of feminine empowerment, an inspiration to millions, and a total style icon.
Blue Ivy is Beyoncé's first-born child. With an A-List status that basically puts her on a par with North West, Blue Ivy leads a luxury lifestyle that's full of glam, travel, and yes, fashion. Twinning with her mother here made for an awesome photo op, but let's face it– the outfit is pretty extra. That much glitter? Only Beyoncé.
15 KYLIE JENNER'S CRYSTAL-STUDDED BABY
If you know Kylie Jenner well enough, you'll know that Christmas Eve 2018 came with this, as Cosmo reports: "this is me leaving the party early to go give my baby a bath (while wearing this dress because I couldn't get it off by myself) and put her to sleep and it was the best Xmas eve yet.”
Kylie attended the bash in the mother of all #Extras. Of course, Stormi was matching. In an outfit that was likely custom-made, we saw one, crystal-studded baby in a onesie that couldn't possibly be comfortable for more than five minutes. The glam queen may be a loving mother, but she sure does pick some extra outfits.
14 WHICH SEEMS TO BE A BIT OF A THEME
It's hard to believe that Stormi Webster is now one. Not one to do birthday parties by half, Kylie Jenner threw her little girl the biggest birthday bash ever. The guest list was star-studded, but the outfits were, too. While Kylie herself steered clear of her usual glam with a simple pantsuit, it was Stormi's getup that caught our eye.
Being gifted her very first Chanel purse here by DJ Khaled, Stormi is seen looking a little disinterested– to be expected at that age. Wearing red glitter though, Stormi's outfit made our list for obvious reasons. Toddlers tend to prefer comfy, soft fabrics. Of course, Stormi is an extra baby.
13 SURI CRUISE'S $3 MILLION WARDROBE COMES WITH HEELS
When Marie Claire estimates your wardrobe to be worth $3 million, you're going to make headlines. Suri Cruise may be approaching her teens now, but this famous kid's childhood hasn't just been documented via her A-List parents. The daughter to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has come with a statement wardrobe from day one.
High heels and designer clothes aren't what most kids wear. They'll tot around in mom's heels when they get the chance, but owning multiple pairs of their own is usually out of the question. Suri's entire childhood came as the most extra fashion show ever, although not all mothers approved of the look.
12 BUT SHE'S GOT NOTHING ON KIM K'S BOOTS
"Didn't think it would happen this soon...my baby girl stealing my shoes. At least she has good taste." That was Kim Kardashian's caption to a picture of North West wearing Balenciaga boots, as Harper's Bazaar reports. When Kim's kids fool around mom's closet, they've got a choice of brands.
Under-five in thigh-high, designer boots isn't a standard situation. Retailing at up to $3,000, Balenciaga's footwear might be adored by the likes of Cardi B (and Rihanna wears their clothes), but you've got to admit. It's pretty extra. North did seem to be enjoying herself though, but there's no way we weren't going to include this pic.
11 CRUSHED VELVET ALSO SEEMS POPULAR
Never a dull moment with the Kardashians. North West has been following her famous mommy around since the day she was born. While Kim is often judged (and wrongly so), there is a side to this celeb parenting that makes you wonder– does the kid actually want to be papped wherever she goes?
Crushed velvets and spaghetti straps are the kinds of things we eye up as adults. Maybe it's a party dress. What it likely isn't though, is a dress for our little girl. With a silky-velvet finish and something we can't quite decipher as matching in North's hand, this extra look was a statement as it gets.
10 JESSICA SIMPSON GOES ALL OUT
Jessica Simpson has been making all kinds of headlines in 2019. Now a new mother to baby Birdie, this mom of three has gone from 2000s actress to makeup mogul. Her brushes line is doing remarkably well. Jessica doesn't parade her kids around on social media with much criticism, although this mother-and-duo moment didn't get the approval from every mom.
Jessica was at a launch event for her brushes line, here. She took her daughter with her. Of course, they went for a matching look. It's what celeb moms do. Channeling grown-up leathers (and likely throwing in some makeup too), this look was pretty extra for a mom who isn't a Kardashian.
9 DJ KHALED DOESN'T HOLD BACK
DJ Khaled might come as the biggest personality in music, but he comes as a duo act. "Father of Asahd" is the moniker this producer uses– Khaled's 2016-born boy is a huge part of his daddy's life. As Cosmo reports Khaled documenting:
"Every morning I tell Asahd I love you, I got you. But the truth is he got me. He’s what gives me hope and purpose. He’s my inspiration and motivation." Just, wow. Still, with the in-your-face reds and velours, this a celeb dad who doesn't hold back when it comes to the style. Private jets are the way for this guy, and his son clearly dresses the part.
8 ALL THE TIMES FARRAH ABRAHAM'S DAUGHTER WORE MAKEUP
Farrah Abraham is easily the most controversial of the Teen Mom OG cast. With 2019 reports from The Inquistr that Farrah is "quitting" the show in favor of a less-savory job, it makes us a little sad to see how things have turned out. Farrah's daughter, Sophia has her own IG account with over half-a-million followers.
Farrah has repeatedly been slammed by mothers for basically treating her daughter like a grown-up. Sophia has her eyebrows waxed. She wears a lot of makeup. Posing here with a "thank u, next" merch item from Ariana Grande's album range, it's clear why this little girl is winding up on our list. It's a bit extra, right?
7 BEYONCÉ AND BLUE IVY: PART II
Beyoncé is probably rich enough to buy the Eiffel Tower itself. When this matching mommy-and-daughter picture surfaced, it went viral immediately. While age-appropriate (and super-stylish), there's a side to the overall setting that feels a touch extra– in the best way possible.
Beyoncé is known for her poses. Choosing to stand here with Blue Ivy, an Eiffel Tower backdrop, and a (likely custom-made) twinning outfit, the extra vibes were loud and clear. Bey and Jay are a power couple. Their three kids are world-famous. To be honest, we kind of want to steal the outfits, but we're not sure we qualify as extra enough.
6 NORTH WEST'S RUNWAY DEBUT
When North West made her 2018 runway debut at the age of five, Harper's Bazaar gave it full coverage. Wearing bright pink pleathers, showing her midriff, and finishing the look with statement shades definitely made an impression (but it also got moms talking). As the magazine reports, Kim only had praise for North.
"North is completely obsessed with L.O.L. Surprise already, so when we found out there was going to be an L.O.L. Surprise BIGGER Surprise Fashion show, she absolutely had to be involved. She loves to dress up like her favorite characters, so it was so exciting for her to actually become a real-life L.O.L. doll." A handful, but then again, worth it for the #Extra occasion.
5 CHICAGO WEST'S FIRST BIRTHDAY OUTFIT
If you watched Kim's IG stories from Chicago's first birthday party, you'll know that this little girl wasn't too keen. "Chi!" Kim is heard saying as she tries to coax her daughter into joining in the fun. Basically, Chicago wasn't having it. She runs around, but she isn't running towards the glam.
She's beyond cute. Seriously, those eyes. Still, a one-year-old in a high-collar silk dress and booties doesn't get past us. Given that Chicago's wardrobe is mostly sweats and comfy onesies, everyone raised an eyebrow when this toddler was dressed up to the nines for her "Alice in ONEderland" party. Cute, but definitely extra.
4 WHEN YOU'RE HALF #KARDASHIAN, HALF #BLACCHYNA
There's less buzz about Dream Kardashian than North West, Stormi, or True. Still, this little girl is part of the world's most famous family. That means she's entitled to the world's most extra outfits. Dream's father is Rob Kardashian. Her mom is Blac Chyna.
Faux fur is something the rich and famous seem to adore. They'll wear it themselves, and they don't hold back dressing their kids in it. Dream was wearing a mix of comfy athleisure-wear and bright reds here, but the #ExtraFinish is never far away when you've got Kardashian as your last name. Well, we wouldn't expect anything less from this family.
3 VICTORIA BECKHAM: ONLY THIS WOMAN TURNS BASIC INTO EXTRA
"Fashion stole my smile" are the statement tees you'll see Victoria Beckham wearing. Known for her poker face (but with a hilarious personality underneath it), this former Spice Girl is now running a fashion empire. The Victoria Beckham clothing line is worn by Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, and Blake Lively.
Victoria's fashion sense mixes pared-down looks with street chic. Her daughter, Harper is growing up fast, although it looks like Victoria is picking Harper's outfits much in the way she selects her own. Really, only this style queen could take basic cottons and make them extra. We loved this look, but it's on our list for a reason.
2 ALL THE TIMES KRIS JENNER'S GRANDCHILDREN HAD TO MATCH
Everyone is so busy focusing on Kylie Jenner and Khloé Kardashian, it's like the rest of the family has been forgotten. Not by us. Kourtney Kardashian's daughter, Penelope, might not make headlines like North West, but this BFF to the great North is just as extra as her cousin.
Yes, the marbles are beyond glam. Then again, so are the outfits. This pic of Kris Jenner with her granddaughter won points for being adorable, but you can't deny that it's extra. With matching florals, a preppy feel, and that bewildered look from Penelope, we're wondering how long this little girl lasted before screaming: "Get me out of this!"
1 A REALM NOW OWNED BY KYLIE AND STORMI
The glam world is basically now owned by Kylie Jenner. Opening her home up to Architectural Digest in 2019 showed us this billionaire's glam room, and we're not sure Stormi is allowed in it. Kylie did admit to the magazine that Stormi has "taken over the house with her toys," though.
Rubber-effect leathers. Pink hair. Makeup. It's Kylie in a package. Stormi wasn't matching exactly with the colors here, but her silk-effect outfit was hardly basic. The more we look at the fabric through, the more the metallics are making us wonder– how happy are babies in this getup? Stormi is adored, but let's not forget that she comes with a #Extra.
