The scene backstage at celebrity stylist and TV personality turned designer Rachel Zoe's Fashion Week show was, as she would say, "bananas," but Zoe was able to stay above the madness thanks to her good luck charm: 2-year-old son, Skyler.

"My son is here so I'm calm!" Zoe, who recently announced she is pregnant with baby No. 2, told supermodel Coco Rocha moments before the show.

Skyler, his trademark curls accessorized with a straw fedora, was a natural in the spotlight, smiling for cameras, grabbing for the mic as his mom took interviews and even sprawling out on the runway in a toddler's version of "The Worm" during a preshow family photo shoot.

"People don't realize how much work it is and how long it takes [to prepare for a show]," Zoe said, "because you see girls walk down the runway and a show is 10 minutes long. It's like planning a wedding!"
