Celebrity kids skipped, strutted, dribbled basketballs and some even did flips down the runway during a high-powered Rookie USA Fashion Show presented by Haddad Brands on the night of Feb. 15 at Skylight Clarkson Square.Hoodies, torn jeans, neon-colored sneakers, vibrant prints and sequin-sleeve denim jackets were part of the featured fall kids styles from Levi’s, Converse, Jordan, Nike and Hurley. The Jordan Brand unveiled select pieces from its fall Re2pect line of boys’ and girls’ apparel and accessories, offering a sneak peek into the kids collection and its first line for infants coming this summer.Celebrities in the crowd included Kevin Jonas, Ice T and Coco, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “Jwoww” Farley, Toni and Towanda Braxton, Victor Cruz, Tiki and Traci Barber, Antonio Cromartie, Carlos Beltrán, Buster Skrine and "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga — many of whom brought their kids to show off their modeling skills. The celebrity kids on the runway included Leah Still, Kennedy Cruz, Brooklyn Barber, Jack and Jasmine Barker, Alyssa Cheatham, Harper and Saint Tillman, Jagger and Jurzie and Jordynn Cromartie, among others.The show was hosted by fashion photographer Nigel Barker, featured a performance by BMI recording artist Sky Katz and all of the proceeds went to the Make-A-Wish Metro New York, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. On average, Make-A-Wish grants a wish every 35 minutes in the U.S. This year, Macy Charles, 18, who suffers from sickle cell anemia and Rylee Bess, 16, who has cystic fibrosis, both got their wishes granted to be models for a day in New York. Macy got her hair and makeup done, walked the red carpet and sat front row as a VIP at the Rookie USA show. Barker said he would treat both Macy and Rylee to their own photo shoots."Make-A-Wish needs everyone's help," Barker told the crowd. "I've done it for 10 years. It's the most rewarding thing I've ever done."
