Maddie Ziegler performs at the Grammy awards with Sia

You know, the more Maddie Ziegler’s success distances her from Dance Moms, the more I like her. Please don’t read that as if I didn’t like her beforehand, because that isn’t the case. She’s incredibly talented, and in the tiny moments that I can appreciate the dancers on the show instead of being consumed by the negative hatred that is Abby Lee Miller (and those MOMS!), I find her to be charming.

That said, it’s always difficult to watch Maddie’s friends and teammates belittled each week because they don’t live up to her shining star. On the flip side, it has to be a lot of stress for the preteen to be placed on a pedestal and constantly put in a position where her besties are alienated due to her triumphs. Regardless, I’m so glad to see her making her way in the business outside of the ALDC. She’s now taking on Fashion Week!

Elle has announced that the reality star and Sia muse will be a special correspondent for the magazine during New York’s most stylish week. Maddie will be attending shows with Elle’s editorial staff, and she’ll be sharing her photos of behind-the-scenes eye candy. Think fittings, front rows (a run-in with North West perhaps?), and celebrity filled after parties.

Maddie shared her excitement with her new gig, writing, “I’m so excited to be attending my first NYFW and who better to experience it with than ELLE.com?”

The dance protege continued, “I’m looking forward to getting tons of inspiration for this next year. ELLE.com is an amazing partner to have during this incredible experience as they truly are one-of-a-kind and groundbreaking.”

According to the magazine, Maddie will be working in her official capacity from Monday through Thursday. I’ll certainly be following Maddie on her new journey…but mainly to be looking out for Abby’s crazy photo bombs. You know they’re coming!
