Ralph Lauren Has The World’s Most Adorable Fashion Show, Starring Maddie Ziegler

Is Ralph Lauren fostering the next generation of Karlies, Kendalls, and Gigis?

Seems so, as there were more than a few supermodels-in-the-making at Tuesday evening’s Polo Ralph Lauren Children’s show at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. You’ll recognize some familiar—and pretty darn cute—faces on the runway. Dance Moms star Maddie Zeigler walked her third runway ever (her first for Ralph Lauren, though) alongside her sister Mackenzie, Rachel Zoe’s son Skyler Berman did his best Derek Zoolander, and Levi Miller, star of the new Peter Pan film Pan, made quite the fashionable impression at the show. We went backstage to get you behind-the-scenes footage of the annual event, which celebrated the Ralph Lauren Children’s Literacy program.
