Marie-Chantal designs for mini-Jackie O.s this spring

MarieChantal.jps Few can resist a 5-year-old girl dolled up like an icon. Which is why Marie-Chantal, the Crown Princess Pavlos of Greece who designs an eponymous children's collection, based her spring 2010 line on the legendary looks of Jackie Onassis and Chanel, circa the 1960s.

The high-end collection, which launched in 2000, borrows the structural shapes of Swinging Sixties, shrinking them to mini-me proportions. There's a tweed suit jacket that's pure '60s Chanel, along with trapeze-style coats boasting oversize buttons and peter pan collars and boxy cardigans.

Ranging from $75 to $230 apiece, the swanky collection isn't daily wear (at least for most of us), but offers pretty looks that promise to impress at christenings, weddings and other special occasions.
