Mathilda Ignores Mom Molly Ringwald’s Style Advice

Mom-of-three Molly Ringwald says her 6-year-old daughter Mathilda - who she recently described as "very willful, headstrong and very intelligent" - takes style advice from nobody.

"She already has a really strong sense of fashion. And she is only six years old. It's pretty formidable!" the Pretty in Pink star tells Canadian newspaper The National Post. "She was like my little doll; for years I really greatly enjoyed putting these outfits together for her. Now it's 'No, no, no, Mommy. This is your style, not mine.' She actually verbalized that when she was five. She was right - she really does put on these incredible outfits. She was actually the one who chose the colour of my Oscar dress."

Molly, 42, doles out advice on topics ranging from style to motherhood in her new book Getting the Pretty Back. She admits that finding the inspiration and energy to write was tough seeing as she was pregnant with twins Adele and Roman, now 9 months, at the time.
