North West was strapped into a bullet-proof vest in the name of fashion at her father’s Adidas fashion show and no one appeared to think this was odd at the event. Mama Kim posted a picture of her “Nori” wearing a vest made to repel bullets on Instagram and again, no one seemed to think that a baby in a bullet proof vest was out of the ordinary. According to MSN News on Feb 18, North “rocks” the bullet proof vest.
North has attended more top fashion shows in her first year of life then most folks will in a lifetime. She’s dressed for the part too, by her fashion conscious mom and her fashion designer dad. Nori’s been seen in everything from leather to lace when she steps out in public with mom and dad, but did a bullet proof vest go too far?
Rumor Fix thinks it was pushing the envelope a bit. They didn’t headline their article with North West looking “cute,” “rocks,” or “adorable” in that vest. In their article Rumor Fix suggested that “Kim Kardashian has taken things with her daughter North West to a whole new disturbing level.”
Hollywood Gossip suggests this might be a serious attempt made by Kanye to protect his family. “For his part, Kanye has expressed concern over the safety of his family in the past. After his wife was attacked last year in Paris, the rapper hired an armored car to drive him, Kim and North around the city for the duration of their stay,” reports the website.
The Hollywood Gossip article also said that “Kanye is also scared that drones may electrocute his daughter someday.” So maybe this is a serious attempt at gradually introducing bullet repelling clothing into his daughter’s wardrobe? Although it doesn’t repel electricity.
Kim reports that her daughter is already showing a tendency towards simple apparel in solid colors that are more on the bland side than flashy. Her one-year-old daughter is showing signs that she’s not a “girly-girl,” suggests Kim. That’s a good thing considering the vest that’s making headline news today is the furthest thing away from princess garb!
The most famous Kardashian sister said that her daughter picks out clothes in gray, creams, oatmeal colors and black. Once in a while she will go for a splash of color in her red Air Yeezys, said the proud mom. Kim shared her daughter’s fashion sense during an interview she did last August. She was six months younger then and already picking up on fashion!
Mrs. West should be very proud of her one-year-old, if she is picking her own clothes out already. Even though North has parents who are highly embedded in the fashion world, she’s already creating a style all her own. Nori sounds like one highly intuitive child! Most would agree that it really doesn’t matter what she wears, it is going to look cute with a face as darling as hers.
Dressing North in that vest just seems a bit unsettling. If you dress your kids in rain coats most people would think you’re suggesting it’s going to rain. If you dress the kids in swimsuits, then there’s a good chance you’re taking them swimming, but for what type of occasion would a bullet proof vest suggest… hunting? Kim also posted a picture of herself dressed in camouflage, so maybe this is the theme the vest is tied into.
According to The Huntington Post, one of the models also wore one of the bullet proof vests designed by West. He is designing for Adidas and when asked about his designs West said;
“If someone was to say, ‘Hey, do you want to go to a high-end house now?’ I’d absolutely say no. I’m not trying to [sound] presumptuous, I’m just saying that if in my wildest dreams I was presented with the opportunity, I would absolutely say no at this point. Because I’m only concerned with making beautiful products available to as many people as possible … The least I could do is spend my time trying to give other people a piece of the so-called good life. Everyone should have the good life.”
This is so true and once they buy a piece of the good life, the good life gets better for the designer! Will his daughter’s bullet proof vest start a viral baby fashion? Only time will tell.
