As the eldest child of superstar parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, North West is, unsurprisingly, a rising style icon. Both her mom and dad are widely considered to be fashion tastemakers, and West is following in their footsteps. She has joined them on a few business trips, including one in London in 2020 for the Bottega Veneta Salon 01 London collection presentation. At just 9 years of age, the young style enthusiast won the best-dressed title during Paris Couture Week with a series of oversize jackets, baggy pants, and platform sandals. She achieved this fashion feat thanks in no small part to her closet full of designer pieces and the assistance of skilled stylists.
First, she brought back her dad’s cobalt varsity jacket from his defunct label Pastelle for a casual day in Paris. Then, she turned heads at the Balenciaga couture show, sitting front row next to her grandmother Kris Jenner and wearing an oversize graphic sweatshirt, threaded pants, and platform sandals. Later, she was spotted with her mom in a black bedazzled denim jacket and graphic shirt, paired with baggy pants and the same Balenciaga x Crocs sandals. The following day, the young star embraced a steampunk aesthetic for the Jean Paul Gaultier show, opting for a sharply tailored pinstripe suit, complete with a skirt, vest, tie, and beret. She surprised fans with a faux nose ring, matching with her mom, who brought back Madonna’s iconic 1992 dress.
More recently, she attended the “The Daily Front Row”‘s Seventh Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards in a dark, edgy outfit, which has become her go-to aesthetic. She paired flared pants with studded platforms, a silver choker, a graphic T-shirt, and a fitted blazer. She wore her hair in a high ponytail with her signature swoop.
Yet long before her latest appearance, West’s outfits were already signaling a style savant in the making — take, for instance, her corseted looks during Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding weekend. Whether on a family outing or traveling with her parents, West delivers a steady stream of style inspo.
