It looks like North West won’t have to wait until she grows into her mom’s Gucci. Nope, that Gucci is currently being shrunk down just for North.
We suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Kim Kardashian West is showing up us slacker mom fans by spending her free time chopping up her old couture and tailoring it to fit her 4-year-old daughter. And if you asked, “What free time?” hey, you’re preaching to the choir here. Kardashian West continually amazes us with her multitasking abilities — including balancing her multimillion-maybe-billion-dollar empire with sewing vintage Versaces into Halloween costumes or whatever.
Oh, don’t get snarky on us now. Yes, we know Kardashian West probably has five au pairs from Monaco to assist these endeavors — and at least one full-time shoehorn technician to help her into her Jimmy Choos each morning. And there’s probably a Cordon Bleu-trained chef on hand to whip up mac and cheese for Saint and North and any other Kardashian cousin who happens to stop by. But still, we must admit the image of Kardashian West slaving away over a sewing machine Project Runway-style to personally tailor her fancy frocks to fit North is pretty damn endearing.
In case you weren’t keeping up, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is slowly taking over the world with fashion phone apps, contouring kits and a coffee-table art book. She’s also expanding into the world of children’s fashion with a line called Kids Supply. And Kardashian West and husband/rapper/fashion dude Kanye West are also reportedly expecting their third child via surrogate. So what have you done lately? I for one just learned how to make kale chips. So…
Kardashian West talked to T Singapore, The New York Times Style Magazine for its October issue and gushed about her life as a mom. “My whole world is my kids, it’s all I care about… from literally every last thing that they do to what they wear, to all their activities. I love being their mom. I definitely don’t hang out with my friends as much just because I have to be with my kids.”
She continued, “It’s been such a fun journey to figure out how our kids like to dress and how to make cool clothes for kids,” she says. “We’ve always been tailoring things and cutting things up, or taking dresses of mine and cutting them down to North’s size.”
North, you lucky thing. Hopefully the pint-size couture wardrobe you’ve got going on takes the edge off all that sibling rivalry. You’ve got a puppy and some Gucci party dresses. Come on. What more do you want, kid?
