A LITTLE FASHIONISTA

Gia has a good head on her shoulders, and she does know her way around fashion. Proud granny Patti once shared a stunning photo of the baby girl as a toddler where she was styled to the nines!

The Philadelphia native started her music career as a member of The Bluebelles.

In the snapshot, little Gia rocked a miniature Celine t-shirt tucked into jean shorts and a pair of gladiator sandals. She topped her chic outfit with a black 5th Avenue bag and a matching sun hat!. Gia's mom, Lona, also shows off her baby's style on Instagram.

LABELLE'S GRANDBABIES CAN SING

It seems the "Godmother of Soul" might have passed on some vocal genes to her pretty granddaughters. Once speaking with "People," the Grammy winner mentioned Gia's love for her 1975 hit song, "Lady Marmalade."

The "On My Own" crooner once had the girls on stage with her. She mentioned that Gia couldn't be kept off the stage while adding about her second grandbaby: "And Leyla, if she came out, she was going to take the mic. She's going to turn up…"

It is safe to say that Patti LaBelle is a music pioneer who doubles as an actress. She has also been dubbed the queen of rock. The Philadelphia native started her music career as a member of The Bluebelles formally known as the Ordettes.

Patti later went solo, and her success started with her 1983 album, "I'm in Love Again." Her success continued through the 1980s with songs like "New Attitude" and "Stir Up," among many others.
