The daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, one-year-old North West, has been living in the limelight lately, going everywhere Kim goes and wearing questionable fashion pieces such as a luxurious fur coat and bullet proof vest. Though it’s wonderful to think Kim K cares so much for North West, she doesn’t want to be separated from her and some people believe Kim is exploiting North, or at the very least, using her as an “accessory.” North West’s mom, the reality TV star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has recently come under fire for her parenting decisions.
Hollywood Life reports the talk show guru and wife of Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon, has publicly shared her opinion on the sometimes ridiculous attire worn by North West.
“I know PETA has asked the Kardashians to stop. [North] isn’t an accessory – she shouldn’t be wearing ugly couture clothes. [Fur] makes me physically sick, and wearing it is a very dated way of showing everyone how rich you are. Our grandparents did it, but now we’ve been educated, it’s cruel to keep the trade going.”

North West had a complete meltdown last month during a fashion show featuring designs by her dad, Kanye West. Attended by a large selection of celebrities such as Jay Z, Beyonce, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, and Rihanna, North picked a poor time to throw a temper tantrum. Well, what one-year-old wants to sit in the same spot for an indeterminate amount of time, especially wearing a bullet proof vest? The vest worn by North West seems to be more of a fashion statement than for protection. Surely that couldn’t be comfortable, even if it is designed by her dad.
Now Kim Kardashian says North West knows how to put on makeup, according to the Mirror.
“[North] can open my blush, put the brush in and put it on her cheek. Today, she was opening my lipstick. She puts it up to her lips like she know what she’s doing.”
At another fashion show during New York Fashion Week last month, North again threw a horrible tantrum. The Vogue Editor-in-Chief took it upon herself to let both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West know that she disapproved of the fact they had brought North with them. An unnamed source described baby North as hysterical.
“Nori’s face in most of the photos says it all. She is frowning, almost terrified, and some of the photos that were deleted had her hysterically crying. She was exhausted. They’ve been toting her all over town like she’s a new handbag, and Anna doesn’t think it’s right to force her to go to everything.”
Anna Wintour told the West couple to take a page from Victoria Beckham’s page; take a quick photo and let the nanny take over.
Honestly, I have more of a problem with Wintour’s advice than with Kimye’s actions. Good parents take their children out with them, and take care of them, spend time with them. Take a look at the following pictures and notice the small, yet important details. Kim holds North West naturally, obviously used to carrying her often. The way she lovingly cups the back of North’s head speaks volumes. It seems to me that Kim Kardashian is giving North West the best gift a mother could ever offer: her time.
