North West Is the Future of Fashion
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 13-month-old daughter makes her official modeling debut in the September issue of CR Fashion Book. Decked out in Chanel accessories, North West strikes her best I’m-just-a-baby-sitting-here-like-any-real-baby-would pose, Lorraine Schwartz studs gleaming in the light.
Dubbed “The Future,” CR points out something we already knew—North West is a big deal: “In our latest preview from our fifth Fashion Book, we reveal the youngest subject to be photographed in a story entitled ‘Legends,’ that celebrates the unconventional side of fashion icon status,” reads the text accompanying the photo of North, shot by Michael Avedon. “Karl Lagerfeld sums up our sentiments best—it’s never to early to start. In this case, we’d agree that 13 months is on the earlier end, but CR predicts a bright fashion future for the already famed daughter of Kanye and past cover star, Kim.”
Kim has already confirmed that her daughter has very specific taste when it comes to her fashions, telling ELLE.com last month, “North doesn’t really like pink. Like, she’s very neutral…she doesn’t like prints…North is princess girly, but in creams. Like a cream textured princess.” Which we assume Carine Roitfeld took into account when she styled Nori for the shoot…or perhaps it’s why the photo is black and white, lest there be any confusion.
The reality star has also revealed that her toddler is not only fashion savvy, she’s a born model: “Every time there is a camera out and paparazzi…she does this either mean angry Kanye face or a pose,” Kim said on The Today Show earlier this week,reports Us Weekly. “She’ll be cracking up and then the second the camera comes on she [makes the pose.]” And not just any pose, the pose everyone from the Olsen twins to Instagram stars try to nail on the regular: the duck face. “When she’s aware there’s a camera she does this pose face—like this serious, like, duck lips and stare, it’s so cute,” Kim told Andy Cohen recently on Watch What Happens Live.
We’re already taking style tips from baby North—she really makes the “cream textured princess” thing look good. But has anyone told her another royal baby has already nabbed a cover?
