HollyMoms, do your daughters want to wear ballgowns and tiaras?
Little girls just love it when their mommies dress them up like princesses! That’s the idea that inspired former Miss USA Ali Landry to create her children’s line Belle Parish. “I think they are at the age where they all want to be a princess and want to wear a dress,” Ali, 37, said on FOX & Friends on Sept. 9, as she discussed the NY Fashion Week debut of her 2011 spring collection.
“It’s been a dream for me to do this kind of thing for a very long time,” Ali, who has a 3-year-old daughter named Estella, says of starting her line. “After I had my baby, as a mom, it just changes everything. That’s really when we started the line.”
“My mom was so wonderful that when I had my baby, she gave me a box of my clothes that she had saved. I didn’t really know how I wanted to dress my child, but when I saw those items, I was like, ‘You can’t really find those sort of things anymore.’ And that’s when I thought, ‘You know what, she’s going to be a baby for such a short amount of time. I’m going to celebrate it. I’m going to enjoy it.’ And here we have the birth of Belle Parish.”
