The pandemic has taken away most of the fashion world’s street style photo opps, what with physical fashion weeks unlikely to happen this year, at least in New York. But that hasn’t stopped Eva Chen from creating her own.
On Monday, the Instagram director of fashion partnerships posted a video of herself with five-year-old daughter Ren — and it’s way cuter than the usual street style snaps.
In a slow-mo video Chen posted on her account using the app’s new Reels function, she walks down an empty midtown Manhattan street wearing a rainbow-hued chiffon even gown, set to the soundtrack of Beyoncé’s “Love On Top.” The off-the-shoulder dress, by Prabal Gurung, is decorated with a pastel-hued abstract floral print and topped with a voluminous matching feather bodice.
The street style star and children’s author holds hands with her daughter, who is wearing a matching rainbow tulle dress by Janie and Jack and a pair of bright yellow sandals. The dress is from the Chen’s collaboration with the brand in honor of her 2018 children’s book “Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes.” Chen will release another children’s book, “3 2 1 Awesome” on October 6.
“Summer romance courtesy of epic Prabal Gurung (on me) and Janie and Jack on Ren. Mask by Erdem!” wrote Chen in her caption.
This isn’t the first time Eva and Ren have gone matchy-matchy: Last week, Chen posted a photo of the duo in colorful Versace tees and shorts, complete with complementing red sandals (Ren’s by Charles & Keith, Eva’s by Alexandre Birman). Another version had the mother and daughter in Alexander Wang, with Chen in a pair of Dr. Marten’s Jadon platform boots in white.
With everyone at home, families seem to be making the most of mommy-and-me photo opps. Last week, Serena Williams posted another photo on her Instagram account of herself twinning with daughter Olympia in Disney princess costumes.
