It was a night for La La Anthony but the celebrity mom’s son, Kiyan Anthony, was in the spotlight. The youngster took the red carpet with his mom at La La’s denim collection at Lord & Taylor in New York earlier this week.
La La leaned on her son as Kiyan gave photographers a big smile. The tween was definitely camera-ready while rocking casual wear. La La was also all smiles at her denim collection debut event.
Anthony’s line is geared towards the majority of women who struggle when shopping for jeans. “I’ve had jeans I liked a lot of things about, but then there would be one thing I didn’t like, whether it was the bottom not being fitted enough or the top squeezed you too much,” La La tells media. “I was like, ‘Oh if they could’ve done this’ or ‘If I could just cut this stitch out it would be perfect.'”
La La’s new collection is her attempt at perfection in jeans. The celebrity mom received most of her feedback from women who, like her, struggle to find perfect denim. “There are no other people to ask than the people who are wearing the line,” she explains. “I feel so many times with clothing lines, they don’t talk to women to see what they want. I used all of the feedback from women out there to create an amazing pair of jeans and an amazing collection at a great price point.”
Although La La Anthony is big on style, she tells media that her son is more of a fashionista than her when it comes to shoes. “The funny thing is that my son and I wear the same sneaker size so now I’m finding all my sneakers in his closet,” La La exclaims. “Unfortunately he doesn’t take as good care of them as I do so all my great sneakers are scuffed up and destroyed,” the celebrity mom admits.
“Like my new pair of Yeezy’s,” La La explains, “he was like ‘I wanna wear those’ and I was like ‘You will not touch those, running around jacking them all up and handing them back to me all messed up.’ But I would say my closet is better, but his sneaker collection is definitely better than mine.”
