Are These America’s Next Top Models?

-------

Each year, Condé Nast celebrates Take Your Children to Work Day, and for Style.com’s station, our editors set up a mock photo shoot to create new covers for Style.com/Print. The participating kids styled themselves in an array of accessories, from tiaras and fake mustaches to feather boas and sunglasses, courtesy of Guess, H&M, Forever 21, Old Navy, and Claire’s, before posing (and jumping) for the camera. The results? Let’s say 2012′s top glossy faces will have some serious competition in the coming years. Are there a few models in the making? See a few of our favorite photos, above.
