During a recent joint appearance with her mom, the 9-year-old made a strong fashion statement by recreating her dad’s look from his former streetwear brand.
North Turns Heads As Kanye West’s Mini
On Tuesday, North and Kim headed out for the Dior Homme Menswear Spring Summer 2023 show in Paris as part of the Paris Fashion Week. As expected, the mother-daughter duo brought their fashion A-games with their outfits.
The SKIMS founder shone brightly in neon green leggings paired with a camouflage top, featuring patches of different shades of green. The reality star rocked her platinum hair in long straight dresses and accessorized with a pair of large, bold sunglasses.
However, it was North that stole the spotlight, looking savvy and chic in a baggy vintage sweater from her dad’s former streetwear brand, Pastelle. Kanye wore the same jacket to perform on stage at the 2008 AMAs.

The 9-year-old rocked the blue bomber jacket featuring orange patches with simple black pants. No expenses were spared in accessorizing North’s look.
The eldest of the West kids carried a mini Balenciaga bag which retails for about $1,600 and donned a pair of stylish wedged Balenciaga crocs that cost about $800.
North’s hair was styled into jumbo box twist braids and she finished off her look with a pair of stylish blue-rimmed sunglasses. Per reports, the jacket is part of the rare collection from Ye’s unreleased line Pastelle and goes for as high as $10,000.
The Yeezy founder spoke of releasing Pastelle in 2009 in conjunction with late designer Virgil Abloh, Don C, and Dior’s Kim Jones as a fashion consultant. However, after his scandal with Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs, news of the brand’s unveiling faded.
The 9-Year-Old Has An Impeccable Fashion Sense
Earlier this year, Kim bragged about her daughter’s fashion prowess during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. In February, North and her siblings made headlines for featuring in the shoot for her March Vogue issue.
Proud mom Kim shared images from the photoshoot on social media and gave styling credit to her eldest daughter. However, when chatting with DeGeneres, the “KUWTK” alum elaborated on North took on the job of styling herself and her siblings.
She revealed that when Vogue arrived with the outfits for the kids, North was immediately disgusted by the options.
Kim recalled, “North styled the whole thing! They were all going to wear black but she walked out and was like “this is so boring I can’t believe this is what we’re going to wear. I’m going to style everyone.”
True to her word, North went into everyone’s closet and outdid herself, making each of her sibling’s personalities to reflect in their outfit choice.
Despite being in awe of North’s styling skills, Kim confessed that she hated having photoshoots with her kids.
“Any time I have to do a photoshoot with my kids or the cousins it’s like the worst day of my life and I always say I’ll never do it again, but then you get amazing pictures like this,” she explained. “It was meant to be a group shot but no one wanted to take pictures together and everyone was crying.”
North Celebrated Her Birthday In Style
North’s appearance at the Paris Fashion Week comes weeks after she celebrated her 9th birthday in style.
Doting mom Kim gave a special shoutout to her mini-me on social media, writing, “Happy Birthday my baby, my bestie, my everything. There’s no one like you! The most honest, creative, silly girl with the best heart. I just love being your mom, So THANK YOU for being on this journey with me. I love you til ♾.”
However, the touching tribute was the tip of the iceberg in celebrating North’s new age. No expense was spared in making North and her friends have a swell time.
The celebrant had a Camp-North-themed celebration that involved her and her group of friends taking Kim’s private jet, which was decorated with pillows made to look like logs and fake spiderwebs to make it as real as possible.
The girls enjoyed their outdoor activities to the fullest, wearing matching plaid pajamas, sleeping in camp tenet, climbing high bridges, and tubing behind a boat.
It was indeed a celebration befitting for the first child of icons like Kim and Kanye.
