Fashion show regular North West, 21 months, is following in her parents’ footsteps with an appearance on the first-ever cover of Vogue Kids. What better way to introduce the glossy’s new child-focused supplement than by featuring the #worldsmosttalkedaboutbaby in custom Alexander Wang?
West was photographed by Craig Barritt on location in Paris under her parents’ watchful eye during the shows in March, but neither Kim Kardashian nor Kanye West appear in any of the images. Dressed in her signature style of black leather, fur, ripped denim and the occasional hint of olive green, West looks more content than we’ve ever seen her before. When asked about her first cover in the interview with Hamish Bowles, West simply says, “Guagghhhh.” We can’t help but agree.
Since her highly publicized birth, baby West has been a prominent fixture in the fashion and celebrity worlds, regularly attending only the highest-profile shows in New York and Europe, and even appearing in one of her father’s music videos. She is a tough critic, however, regularly throwing fits as models come down the runway and snarling at the paparazzi that already follow her every move.
Vogue U.S. has not published a supplemental subscription magazine since Men’s Vogue shuttered in 2008, but it is undeniable that interest in celebrity children and designer childrenswear is at an all time high. The first issue clocks in at 720 pages — only 50 of which feature West’s editorial — so it’s obvious advertisers recognize the value of the younger consumer.
