Not everyone wants to see a child dressing like this, so some of those photos online are now tagged with comments from critics: “You only teach him material stuff,” they’ll write, or “he’s just a spoiled douche bag” — a loaded insult for a 5-year-old, one that suggests they find these photos exploitative, or that they encourage creepers. “I think people usually judge right away,” Espinosa says, defending her choices. “When we go shopping, if he wants loafers just like his daddy and I can afford them, I get them. We’re fine raising our son. He’s always polite, he’s grounded, he’s a sweet boy.” Others question whether his taste in fashion is “too much for a little kid,” say that he looks like “a miniature adult,” or that he should simply “enjoy his childhood.”Check out Alonso’s instagram page here.

There are some five year old boys in this world that like to wear Batman t-shirts and tennis shoes, and then there’s five year old Alonso Mateo who likes to wear designer clothes, use hair gel and accessorize with Gucci shades. I imagine if you had a talented stylist as a mom (Luisa Fernanda Espinosa) you might also be a fashionista. Alonso is one cute little guy and I personally LOVE his style.
