It may not be New York Fashion Week, but that doesn’t matter to Kaavia James. The 4-year-old walked the runway of her hair salon with her mom, and she strutted her stuff like the world was watching. Work it, girl!

In the adorable video posted to Instagram, Kaavia wears a hot pink dress buttoned down the front and tied with a bow, and sparkling silver sandals. Her freshly done hair is braided with white beads to match her white nail polish. She holds the hand of her mom, Gabrielle Union — who is also dressed fabulously in a lime green shirt and lavender crop top, with her hair done up in Bantu knots — as they walk the length of the salon floor to open-mouthed stares of jealousy (duh!) and big smiles.

You can tell Kaavia got it from her mama — they model with serious faces, knowing they look good. In typical Shady Baby fashion, she purses her lips and doesn’t even crack a smile. This is no time for being silly, OK?

“I did the lifting AND then…” Kaavia’s parents posted to her official Instagram account. “✨Featuring✨ 💎 5 Butter Leave-in Conditioner 💎 5 Butter Masque Foil Packette 💎 Elongating Curl Custard 💎 Styling Glaze 💎Nourishing Scalp Spray.”

People couldn’t get over Kaavia’s brilliant performance. “I simply, CANNOT! why is Kaav EVERYTHING! ALL THE TIME! I know she’s got to be exhausted from all that excellence,” one person wrote. Oh, you know she is!

“My girl better WALK!!!!!!!!” another wrote. Someone else said, “PERIOD NIECE!!!! 😝😝💅🏾💅🏾.”

“These two!! Name a better duo!! 😍😍 There isn’t one!!” another commented.
