(CBS/AP) Cecilia Cassini is a lauded 11-year-old fashion designer for the stars. She's created looks for Miley Cyrus, "Twilight" star Ashley Greene and "Big Love" actress Bella Thorne. But has she also claimed the title of "the most insufferable child alive" (via The Gothamist)?

Cassini, a recent guest on "The Nate Berkus Show," was challenged to create three fashionable looks for young girls. We here at "Eye on Parenting" admire children that follow their dreams and do amazing things. But is Cassini entering the adult fashion sphere a bit too soon? The young designer sported knee-high black boots, a short leopard-print dress and fabric-embellished headband on the broadcast.

Berkus seemed to think her look and mannerisms were a bit too adult, saying to Cassini at the end of the segment, "I do have to say one thing to you: You have to promise me one thing: It's fun to come on TV and you do a great job with this and I think some of the details in your collection are amazing. And I'm not a fashion designer. But you have to promise me that you'll take the time to be a kid, too. To do kids' stuff."

Cassini assured the host, "I do. Yes."
