The fight for the style crown is on! Results of Very.co.uk's celebrity style survey, which asked custome women's coats rs to vote for the most stylish parents and children, shows that children have become the new style authorities.
The original Queen of Pop, Madonna, ranks as one the least stylish icons winning only 1% of the parent vote, whilst daughter Lourdes' topped the children's style poles with 17%. In joint first position as most stylish child, Lourdes is joined by five year old, Suri Cruise while mother; Katie Holmes lags behind her offspring with only 9%.
It was a case of a cool kid eclipsing the style of her mother also in the Smith household. Actress, Jada Pinkett-Smith failed to feature in results receiving no votes from the Very.co.uk research panel while 11 year old daughter, Willow Smith ranks 3rd also beating her father, Men in Black star, Will Smith who only manages 6th place.
Hollywood hunk, Brad Pitt also takes a knock in the study with the eldest of his brood, Maddox, achieving 2% more votes than him.
The few parents that still lead the style stakes include Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie and Nicole Richie; all secured more votes than their kids.
The trend of kids carrying more style than their parents is echoed by retail guru, Mary Portas who recently said, "In the 60's women didn't want to dress like their mothers. Now we've ended up with women dressing like their daughters."
The key to fashion success, be it adult or child appears to be a confident and consistent signature style. Perhaps Madonna stick to her own wardrobe and stop borrowing Lourdes' clothing and Katie should take back Suri's clothes allowance and use it for herself?
