The Real Housewives of New York City'sAlex McCord and New Jersey's Teresa Giuddice took their kids to an Us Weeklyback-to-school photo shoot and revealed how their sons and daughters scored an A in classroom chic.

McCord, mother to Francois, 5, and Johan, 3, loves that her boys take after their father, Simon.

"They're both very excited to be wearing ties because my husband always wears a formal suit and tie and pocket square and cuff links when he goes to work, so the boys are obsessed with ties," she told Us.

Giudice, who welcomed her fourth daughter last year, agreed that Gia, 8, Gabriella, 4, and Milania, 3, love getting dressed up for school. (Oldest daughter Gia even told Us, "I like to shop at Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale's.")

"They pick out their own clothes, and then I just buy it for them," Giudice said. "All three of them are like the divas. They love their clothes and their accessories and they love to get dressed up, which I love."

Still, McCord doesn't let the fame from their hit Bravo franchise change the way she shops for her "really wonderful, normal" kids.

"Whenever people ask me for shopping tips for kids, [I say] you can go nuts and you can spend $500 on a cashmere sweater, but are you really going to do that for a little kid who's going to spill chocolate ice cream on it?" McCord -- whose two sons wore $70 J.Crerw vests, $11 Old Navy T-shirts and $25 Converse sneakers -- told Us.
