North West proved it’s not a good idea to bring a 19-month-old to New York Fashion Week. Kim Kardashian’s daughter burst into tears before a presentation of Kanye West's Fall/Winter 2015 partnership with Adidas at New York Fashion Week Thursday.
Kardashian tried to soothe little North as she held the toddler on her lap. The reality star, 34, wiped the child's nose and gave her a bottle, but it appears North was unable to calm down before the show started. The baby did not accompany Kardashian in pictures taken after the show started.
But for the time North did spend at NYFW, she joined some of fashion's and music’s elite. She got to hang out with Vogue Editrix Anna Wintour, Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé, rap legend and entrepreneur Jay Z and rapper/producer Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.
For a short time, Wintour’s name was a top-trending topic after she looked like she was not impressed with baby North’s tears. Beyoncé, Jay Z and P.Diddy looked like they weren’t found about sharing the front row with a toddler either.
After the show, West did not want to talk about his recent Grammy diss with Beck, where he said the Album of the Year winner should have given his award to Beyoncé. Instead, he told the Associated Press his shoes, called the Yeezy 750 Boosts, represent “the people.”
"I think that there's something that people have been wanting and missing and this is my proposition, you know, to contribute in some way,” he told the AP. “I want to contribute to society through usable art."
A limited amount of the Yeezy 750 Boosts will be sold for $350 Saturday. More shoes will be available for purchase worldwide Feb. 28.
