Idolized since birth, it looks like the daughter of model Kim Kardashian and award-winning recording artist Kanye West is following in her mother’s foot steps and beginning a modeling career. At only 13 months, North West has traded in the paparazzi lens for the lens of Michael Avedon as she makes her modeling debut as a feature model in the editorial “Legends” inside the new 5th issue of CR Fashion Book.
The photo was released yesterday on CR Fashion Book website. The story celebrates the unconventional side of fashion icon status. Karl Lagerfeld sums up our sentiments best—it’s never to early to start. The black and white photo shows North looking to the side, wearing a sweater with a black flowered Chanel brooch and one of the designer’s signature quilted bag resting on her little legs. Baby West is the youngest subject of CR’s story “Legends,” which celebrates fashion icons. It also looks that the toddler made a huge impression on her debut as the publication comments on a bright future ahead for Baby West. Both mother and father have a deep background in modeling and fashion.
Kim Kardashian has graced countless covers for variety of publications over her 11 years and ongoing career as a model. The 33 year-old has been the face of international brands such as: Skechers, Midori, and Christopher Brain Apparel. Kanye West has been a modeling enthusiast since the early days of his career. The 37 year-old mogul is the current covermodel for GQ. North’s aunties are also models as well, Kim’s younger sister Kendall Jenner is a most-sought after model currently. Kendall is a newcomer to modeling and already been involved in major campaigns like her current Fall/Winter Givenchy campaign.
There is no word of North West being align with an agency for professional representation; however, her parents have copywritten her name and being an child, it could be assured that Kim Kardashian is indeed the official management for North West.
