Dance Moms’ Maddie Ziegler models for Elle

Our hearts just melted.

Any fan of quality trash television will appreciate this just as much as we do.

Maddie Ziegler, the twelve-year-old prodigy from the exquisitely lowbrow series Dance Moms, has shot an editorial for Elle.

Snapped in her family home in Pittsburgh, the eight-pic series offers a fleeting insight into the life of the home-schooled reality star. The frames feature an angel-faced Ziegler posing coolly in her bedroom, alongside an excess of trophies and with adorable puppy Maliboo; reminding us all that behind those glitzy stage costumes is just a regular American girl. 

…who is an unnaturally talented dancer and freaky good model.
