Maddie Ziegler is no stranger to the fashion world -- the 12-year-old "Dance Moms" star has starred in campaigns for Betsey Johnson and Capezio, and was enlisted by ELLE.com to be their fashion correspondent during New York Fashion Week.
However, the Sia muse has just made her mark as fashion's newest darling with her runway debut at Polo Ralph Lauren fall 2015 children's show. Maddie sported not one, not two, but three different ensembles, including a plaid coat with a white dress shirt underneath and a black jumper accessorized with a pirate hat.
Following the show, the "Chandelier" star shared a backstage snaps of the models with the designer. The first also included Diane Kruger, and was captioned, "I had such a wonderful time in #NYC with #RalphLauren! Thanks for the hospitality!"
Maddie Ziegler is giving us all a little something to relate to with her latest project. The Dance Moms star-turned-Sia muse is about to turn 13-years-old—yeah, she's currently only 12—on Sept. 30, and in order to ring in her teenage years, she's starring in a short film for i-D magazine titled "Lucky Thirteen" that's dedicated to the coming of age.
The video, which is directed by Bunny Kinney, is "an ode to being a 13-year-old girl, entering your teens and being yourself no matter what," according to Ravi Amartunga, i-D's global director of video.
"In a parallel universe I was never hated in junior high. I was never the most popular, but definitely not the most hated either," Sevigny reads as the video opens, showing Ziegler sitting in her bed, writing in her own diary. "I would go to a state college, and find a boring job one day, where I would sit in a cubicle," she continues. "This is always how I pictured that my life would have turned out, had my junior high school experience not been so traumatizing."
With the sixth season of Lifetime's hit reality competition show "Dance Moms" currently in production, fans are concerned that star student Maddie Ziegler may be absent from the series. The young dancer has reportedly missed the filming of two episodes with the premiere installment seeing the squad land on top spot during Sheer Talent Special Competition in California. Although Ziegler was originally listed to perform, she did not make it to the contest.
What added to the speculation was that she is more likely to be absent for the third episode as she is busy with her new drama film project with "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow and Hollywood actress Naomi Watts called "The Book of Henry."
Ziegler also shared before that she was not sure about going back to the series because she wants to try other endeavors such as singing, acting and the fashion world. She recently strode down the catwalk for Ralph Lauren's teen clothing line during a benefit show.
It seems like Maddie Ziegler will be leaving the reality dance show "Dance Moms" after all, after landing a major movie role in "The Book of Henry." According to TMZ, the young dancer, who was catapulted to stardom by starring in several music videos by Zia and landing a guest spot in "Pretty Little Liars," will be leaving the Lifetime show to concentrate on her movie career.
Maddie will star alongside Hollywood heavyweights Naomi Watts, Sarah Silverman, Bobby Moynihan, and child actor Jacob Tremblay in the movie. According to a report by Entertainment Today, Ziegler's mom Melissa Gisoni was the one who made the announcement to the cast during a taping of the show. She said that her daughter will no longer be joining the show for the next season, so season 6 will be her last.
Also quitting the show is Maddie's sister Mackenzie. Along with leaving the show, the sisters will also be quitting Abby Lee Dance Company. Maddie has also booked her next acting gig, a movie titled "Sister," which is Sia's first foray into screenwriting and directing.
If you've been patiently waiting for Maddie Ziegler to debut her new campaign photo shoot pics for Capezio dancewear brand, you'll be happy to know that the wait is finally over! The dancer stars in the line's new #DanceInYou short video that showcases both her dance skills and the new athleticwear, and she's all kinds of fierce, obvi.
Maddie Ziegler may only be 13 years old, but the teen has a flare for dramatic make-up fit for the stage thanks to the years she has spent as a competitive dancer. The former Dance Moms star, who has appeared in four of Australian singer Sia's wildly popular music videos, accentuates her fresh-faced beauty with over-the-top make-up in her new shoot for Paper magazine's YOUth issue, which she guest-edited.
'Though I do love experimenting with makeup, I also want to stay my age and I don't want to look older than I am,' Maddie told the magazine. Despite modeling blue eye shadow and fire-engine red lips, Maddie's make-up looks created by Mia Yang still manage to have a youthful feel thanks to the whimsical use of glitter and metallic stars artfully arranged on the rising star's face.
'I've had to do makeup since I was five years old because of my dance competitions...I started learning on my own and trying things ever since,' Maddie explained of her eye for experimentation. In one of the images shot by photographers JUCO, Maddie has iridescent glitter dramatically painted over her eye lids and a line of small silver stars placed over one of her arches.
