Maddie Ziegler has gone from walking the runway to taking in shows at New York Fashion Week. Just over one month after strutting her stuff at the Polo Ralph Lauren fall 2015 children’s fashion show, the “Dance Moms” lead has been making appearances at several high-profile runway shows and it’s just the start of a busy week for the 12-year-old reality star.
Maddie kicked off her 2015 NYFW experience by sitting front row at Betsey Johnson’s spring 2016 show on Sept. 11 alongside Teen Vogue Style Director Andrew Bevan. Their dual appearance came just days after she was named one of Hollywood’s next big things by the publication. The following day, Maddie was photographed joining Bevan for the Rebecca Minkoff Runway Show SS 16 at The Gallery. Photos from the event show Maddie posing with “Fashion Police” co-host Melissa Rivers and model Coco Rocha. But her NYFW adventures didn’t stop there!
Later that same day, Maddie appeared in the front row and backstage at Christian Siriano’s spring 2016 runway show at Artbeam. Photographers captured shots of Maddie posing next to dozens of celebrities while seated in the front row, including actors Alicia Silverstone, Christina Hendricks, Laura Prepon, Joey King and Carlson Young.
Maddie was last spotted rubbing elbows with celebrities at Zac Posen’s spring 2016 fashion show at Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal Monday. Maddie posted a snap of herself posing with former “Fashion Police” star Kelly Osbourne at the event to Instagram. “I LOVE @kellyosbourne. One of the nicest and sweetest people I’ve ever met! Thanks for being so sweet,” she captioned the picture.
Maddie also took a moment to pose with “Scream” and “The Duff" star Bella Thorne at the show. In one shot, the 17-year-old actress can be seen giving the “Dance Moms” star a kiss on her cheek for the cameras. “Unforgettable night at @zac_posen!” Maddie said of her meeting with Throne on Instagram. “Loved seeing the most beautiful and sweetest girl @bellathrone. What an amazing way to end my #NYFW.”
While Maddie has been busy taking NYFW by storm it doesn't appear her schedule will be clearing up anytime soon. Maddie’s dance coach, Abby Lee Miller, recently announced that her star student, as well as some of her “Dance Moms” co-stars, would be hosting several master classes in Texas. The cast will kick off their short tour in Houston on Sept. 18 before finishing off their appearances with a stop in El Paso on Sept. 20. According to ads for the event, Kendall Vertes and Maddie’s younger sister, Mackenzie Ziegler, will also be in attendance.
Filming for “Dance Moms” Season 6 is officially in full swing. Abby Lee Miller was spotted filming for the new episodes at her West Coast studio, ALDC LA (Abby Lee Dance Company Los Angeles), on Sept. 12. While there is one competition already set up for the new season, it’s unknown if Maddie will return to the series. In an interview with MTV Australia in June she revealed that she had yet to sign on for another installment.
“I’m not sure what’s going to happen for Season 6,” she said. “I don’t know if I’m going to do it or not, so it just depends."
