'Toddlers And Tiaras' Star Eden Wood Hosts Fashion Show With Kelly Bensimon

Posted: Updated:

Six-year-old "Toddlers and Tiaras" alum Eden Wood announced her retirement from the pageant circuit in July, after racking up an impressive 300 wins.

But she promised Barbara Walters she, despite the retirement, had big plans to "do my other things and like, um, doing my career... and probably being a superstar."

Apparently, "doing my career" means participating in New York Fashion Week.

Eden will join "Real Housewives of New York" cast member Kelly Bensimon to co-host the 2012 Cowgirl Riders Debutante Fashion Show presented by children's wear brand Cicciabella this Thursday at New York's Bryant Park Hotel.

According to the press release:

Cicciabella footwear brings major glamour to trendy tots with their newest line of boots for 2012. The Cowgirl Riders line features a collection of comfy boots in vintage western prints, perfect for all tiara-loving debutantes.

Maybe Kelly can impart some of her fashion advice to the little pageant star. For example, "K.I.S.S."

Also, we hear Ms. Bensimon has a teddy bear coat that sounds like an adorable hand-me-down for young Eden.

One thing's for sure: We're glad none of said "trendy tots" will be tarted up as Dolly Parton, or worse, Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman."
