Okay, we have a good excuse.

Saturday, February 10, 2007 by

Kittens, we're sorry we didn't provide you with our normal astronomically high level of entertainment yesterday, but when Bryant Park calls, one simply must answer.


Once again, we got to spend the day with the Bennett-Shelton clan as future supermodel of the world Pierson Bennett Shelton made his runway debut for the Child Magazine show.





Here, Tom pretends that he is the prissy uptight assistant of a world famous fashion designer. "Please stand 10 feet away from Ms. Bennett while she is on the phone, thank you."


The show was a blast. The kids outfits ranged from the glamorous to the outrageous to the adorable. As always, you can check out New York Mag for the entire runway show and backstage photos.


SO CUTE!!!!


SO FREAKING CUTE!!!!!


We're DYING here! And yes, Laura made the outfit.

For most of us, home movies consist of the requisite sleepy-eyed Christmas morning stuff, along with the occasional recital or pageant or parade march. If your parents are Peter Shelton and Laura Bennett, your home movies consist of you walking down a Bryant Park runway past a bored Kimora Lee while Tim Gunn watches and applauds.

Tiny little boy, you are freaking FABULOUS!

Of course it's no surprise that Pierson owned that runway (no matter what Kimora thinks). He had two fabulous fairy godfathers last month cheering him on and offering tips as he practiced his catwalk in his living room:

Future star? Oh yes.


Backstage, Lorenzo does his impression of a 13 year old girl. "Ohmigod. Catherine Malandrino. Ohmigod. We have to get a picture. Ohmigod she's fabulous. Here, take a picture. NOW. Ohmigod. Ohmigod. She's so fabulous. I think I'm going to cry."

He is SUCH a little starfucker.

Truth be told, she looks GORGEOUS in person and she was surprisingly friendly.

After the show, we hung out back at their place and ordered Chinese and just chatted.


We finally got to hang out a little more with Nicole, who we promised would get a picture on the blog. She is fabulous and funny and a blast to be around. Here, she demonstrates how to use a newborn baby as a puppet, while big brother Truman mugs for the camera - something all those kids do the minute a lens is trained on them.


We forced a gun to his head but we finally got Bad Daddy to pose for us.

There. Now does that make up for no posting yesterday? As always, poodles, we do it all for YOU.

Damn! one of these days i'm going to have to start writing an impeccably fabulous blog. I don't know if I could handle such dizzying heights.

Ms. Place said...

How absolutely fabulous is this post? I am drooling, simply drooling. And how adorable are those kids? And can Big Daddy clone himself for a simple Dutch girl?

I just reviewed the fashions that were shown during Fashion Week on this website
http://www.mercedesbenzfashionweek.com/newyork/fall2007/
and was struck by how many dresses and outfits reminded me of Laura's.

Honestly, those designers should stop copying her.

Angie said...

It is the glamorous life! Thank you for the pictures - living the dream.

Madeline said...

Aw you gays always have the most fun! Jealous Maddie!!!!

ToddNY said...

How fabulous! You guys rock! They all look great and Catherine is a gorgeous bitch, isn;t she?

Janet said...

Pierson is adorable!! I love the outfit too.

DivineQueen said...

Tim Gunn is really wonderful. He's always supporting the designers. Laura will always be my favorite.

That is so funny, guys. I love all the pictures and the video. Thanks, guys!

Catherine said...

Laura should create a line for children. She's so talented. Great pics!

TokyoDoll said...

Finally a picture of BadDaddy holding Finn. He looks adorable! Thank you for this lovely post, boys!

BrianB said...

OMG, that expression on the baby's face in that last picture is priceless! "Turtle poop? Hahaha! Once I'm done with this he'll never be able to wear that suit again!"

The Malandrino caption is so hilarious! She looks so much better in your pic than she did on the show!

And Kimmora, I don't know, yeah, she DOES it all but she never lets anyone forget it does she? The word "effortless" just isn't in her vocabulary.

Even though I did check in at least a dozen times yesterday, you are forgiven.

Gorgeous Things said...

OMG, I love the movie! And screw Kimora Lee. Her taste is in her a** anyway. Laura and her whole brood are fabulous!

Re: the glamorous Catherine -- That does it. I absolutely MUST get a hot pink/fuschia scarf TODAY!

LindaLA said...

Awwww, how sweet! Pierson looks so cute.

LaFemmeFataledeNY said...

Oh my god, everyone was there. Russell Simmons, Kimora Lee, 50 Cent, Hilary Duff, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Tim Gunn, Cynthia Rowley, Catherine Malandrino... I'm so jealous!

Sarah said...

"If your parents are Peter Shelton and Laura Bennett, your home movies consist of you walking down a Bryant Park runway"

HA! So true. I love Laura. I agree with the commenter above, she needs to have her own line pronto!

Stephanie said...

Thanks for sharing the great pictures! Living vicariously through you...

Great pictures, guys! Thank you very much. Catherine is actually prettier than I thought.

Laura K said...

Best post ever! I piddled in my pants a little.... You guys are SO LUCKY!

The Scarlett said...

Loved the part about Catherine Malandrino and well, Pierson can just tell Kimora that his star has already passed hers on the way up.

Love it all, love Laura, love Tim, love you both!

sewhat? said...

Thanks for the early Valentine, dearest Boys.

The Scarlett said...

Wait, is Pierson wearing his paddock boots? Just wondering.

Enjoy the ride, boys, and thanks for letting us share.

Starfuckers indeed! Great post bitches. You're forgiven.

Crow Winters said...

Oh my god, you bitches got to meet Cathrine Malindrino. I love you and hate you all at the same time!

sewhat? said...

So did the clothes for all of the other little boys come from Marshalls or The Salvation Army store?

BigAssBelle said...

oh you little fuckers. there you were in NY having a blast, giving nary a thought to your rabid fans here. what a divine day, and what fun! i am enchanted by the photos. that little boy outfit is precious.

Brandenburg3rd said...

I love the "Pierson! Yea!" from the sidelines. I'm sure the kids never wanted for friends and family, but when you can add Uncles Tom, Lorenzo and Tim to the list, you *don't* pass that one up. Lucky little rugrats!

Kimora who? I was watching the kid!

When you bring us news like this, OF COURSE we'll forgive you!

Jennifer said...

How cute! I love the outfit and the little butterflies. Adorable!!

LolitaLT said...

You guys are the best. Thank you so much for sharing these precious moments with us. Laura looks amazing! I love the dress she's wearing.

thombeau said...

T&L, you guys are so freakin' cute! And so are your fabulous new friends! Thanks for sharing that part of your world with us!

Christie said...

Laura! Peter! Please adopt me so some of your fabulousness will rub off on me!

How cute are those kids!!!

Jim Borree said...

Oh cmon please. Real original stuff , sure, like we haven't seen those kiddie styles over the years.
Boring boring,now we have to cross over to the kid fashion world uh ?

Is Big Daddy the grandfather ?

Amie said...

Oh how cute! Great pics!

Angela said...

The picture of Peter Shelton holding Finn is the best. Pierson has a great smile. Thanks!

Katie said...

Pierson is so cute walking the runway. I love these pictures.

You guys look like you're part of the family :- )

Thank you for the pictures. The video of Pierson is absolutely adorable.

FashionFanatic said...

"Tiny little boy, you are freaking FABULOUS!"

He is fabulous! I love love love the outfit.

snf in va said...

Ok, so did Laura knit Pierson's sweater, too?

Thanks for the update on the clan, and for introducing Nicole.

My crystal ball tells me that Tim Gunn has become a good friend of the Bennett-Sheltons, and that Laura may be designing for cocktail and evening wear for Liz Claiborne soon.

Just guessing, mind you...

:o)

Bill said...

I adore eavesdopping on your fabulous lives....

SNF, my Magic 8 Ball sent me the same message. Can someone check their Ouija board??

OohLaLa! A Saturday post! I have been reduced to dial up until Monday so I can't see the pics or watch the video but I doubt they can surpass the commentary! Thanks for the weekend treat!

Javier said...

I love Laura. She and Tim Gunn are the best thing that ever happened to Bravo or Project Runway.

Ted said...

"After the show, we hung out back at their place and ordered Chinese and just chatted."

How fabulously ordinary. I love you bitches! Thank you (and I do mean it) for sharing these fantastic pictures with us.

Oh, man, that video really made me smile. I needed that today, guys. THAT is why I read this blog every freaking day.

And Laura Bennett, I'm completely in love with you in the most nonromantic way. You are an ICON.

Suzanne said...

OK- you know what? I am officially starting to HATE you two!! (LOL- Never, my boys......)

Finn in the last picture makes me so happy. He looks so alert in both pictures!

Laura and Peter sure do make beautiful children.

Zara said...

What was the fabric of the little jacket Laura is wearing in the pics?

I love you guys.

Zara said...

Tom, your hair looks great. Lorenzo, I am so happy for you and your Malandrino moment.

The kids are adorable. I want to scoop up that dangling baby though. Yikes!

Anonymous said...

Lorenzo, sweetie, don't listen to anybody (even your honey).
I've been in "the" business 15 years: I'm still a total starfucker and everybody loves me. HA! It totally pays off, trust me.

Psst guys . . . you need to start charging for being PR flaks for the great Ms. Bennett.

Bryan said...

Loved this post. THANK YOU!

Katie said...

Great post guys! I checkedout the pictures Friday on Gettyimages. Unfortunately they were too lazy to post who designed each outfit, but I was pretty sure I picked out Laura's look right away. I was right.

Valerie said...

The outfit is so cute. Laura should have her own line for kids.

It's a fashion family!!!

First of all, I love the pics. and Tim Gunn of course.. and Laura of course!

But... is it me or does Tim look a little puffy in that pic?

trixie said...

What a fantastic day! Thanks for sharing it.

AuntieRuth said...

Tom's head and Laura's head are the same shape! The same bone structure! Siblings? Clones? One person?

Melissa said...

What a great post, guys! Everyone looks incredible. Fabulous, darling, fabulous!

DominiqueM said...

All the pictures are great but the video is the best part of the post with Laura cheering for her son, and Tim Gunn waiting for Pierson's entrance. Absolutely adorable, guys!

****

It's the picture. I've seen a couple from the same day, and he looks just fine. (Tie askew just enough to make my fingers itch to straighten it, but otherwise just fine.) It's amazing how a slightly wrong angle on a picture can really screw things up. (Think of your DMV picutre. NOBODY has a good one.)

Wow, Thank you so much for keeping us in the Laura Loop. Love Her.

OK, so many things to comment on:
1.) Laura looks great, she is already lost her baby weight and I love that jacket she is wearing. I am guessing she made it herself.
2.) Tom, you like you could be Laura's brother.
3.) I am loving Peter. The pic of him holding Finn is adorable. Finn is one of the cutest babies ever.
4.)Pierson, how cute is he? Loved hearing Laura yell "Go Pierson!" during his runway walk.
5.) Great pic of Catherine Malindrino and Lorenzo
6.) How are you ever going to top this post? I am already looking forward to the next Laura post.
7.) Did I mention that I have a crush on Peter?

That's it for now.

Claire said...

Fabulous post!! I love Laura and she looks fabulous in these pictures! What a beautiful family!

She did lose her baby weight. How does she do it? Amazing!!

Claire said...

The episode in Paris with Catherine Malandrino was my favorite episode of Season 3. I love Paris!

Anonymous said...

Aw, Pierson looks just like Laura, doesn't he?

I seem to remember her saying (re baby naming) that Pierson looks like her and Larson favors Peter...

What a sweet family.

And, Tim! So cute anticipating Pierson's entrance...

Thanks boys for giving me my daily quota of "awwww... Isn't that cute? Combined with a touch of "I'm so jealous, I want to be there too!"

OOXX

OK, In that first pic of Tom and Peter, Peter is looking a bit Clint Eastwoodish to me.

Happy Valentines Day to Laura & Peter and to Tom and Lorenzo!

Thanks for all the work you do on this blog. It is appreciated.
