At 9 years old, my biggest plans revolved around playing with Barbies, having sleepovers with my friends, and watching Lizzie McGuire on the Disney Channel. Twenty years later, my life actually doesn’t look too different — except now I’m playing LEGOs with my sons, grabbing drinks with my friends, and still watching anything Hilary Duff is in. So even though it shouldn’t be surprising to see 9-year-old North West looking effortlessly chic with her mom Kim Kardashian at the Daily Front Row Fashion Awards last night, it still is. Can you imagine getting to wear luxury clothes and walking the red carpet at a fashion awards event? Then getting on stage and helping present the award? Even among celebrity kids, that’s seriously impressive!
North West Wore All Black for the Event
Channeling her dad, Kanye West, North wore all-black to the fashion awards. She was photographed on the red carpet side-by-side with her mom, wearing a perfectly fitted black suit over a black shirt, complete with flared black pants that unzipped to reveal Dolce & Gabbana platform boots. She also had a silver choker necklace with a cross pendant, and her long black hair was slicked back in a high ponytail.
The SKIMS founder wore a two-piece grey outfit that consisted of a bandeau top and a form fitting skit with thigh-slit. Shoe wore strappy heels that curved around her ankle and up her calves. Her black hair was parted in the middle and hung loosely around her shoulders.
North learned from the best when it comes to posing, as she gave the camera a look with slightly pursed lips, just like her mom. How is it possible to be this put-together this young? North is my hero!
North Helped Present an Award
North didn’t just pose for pictures — she also helped present a fashion award! The 9-year-old helped present an award for Hair Artist of the Year to Chris Appleton.
“There’s no words. Chris Appleton’s the best,” North said into the mic, per Entertainment Tonight. Then Kardashian took over and said, “OK, well, you’ve heard it from North West.”
The confidence! The poise! The drama! North is nowhere close to our dorky 9-year-old selves.
Later, Appleton took the stage and greeted North with a hug and a kiss on the forehead in a sweet moment.
The stylist told Access Hollywood about Kardashian, “She’s the kindest person I’ve ever met, so generous. Obviously, she’s my client but she’s also a friend and I’m really grateful and honored that she could be here.”
North Is No Stranger to the Stage
One reason North looked so comfortable on the stage? She’s used to it! In addition to her life being so public — you can’t be part of the Kardashian/Jenner family and not be in the spotlight — she recently was on stage at Katy Perry’s concert in Las Vegas.
“So the reason I know your name is because I’m a huge fan of your TikTok,” Perry told North, per PEOPLE. “I’ve seen a couple of them that you’ve made. You’re a really good dancer, and I thought what better way to be a great dancer [than] to show the world your awesome dance moves?”
North is totally comfortable walking the red carpet and presenting an award and Katy Perry is a fan of her TikTok videos? What a life!
