When we saw the pictures of little North West sitting FROW at her dad’s Adidas show at New York Fashion Week, we couldn’t believe our eyes.

And it wasn’t because she kept balling her eyes out (bless her). Oh no. It was because it looked like she was wearing a miniature bullet proof vest and today, Kim Kardashian confirmed that is exactly what she was wearing.

Now we know New York can be a pretty tough place, but when you’re with mummy and daddy’s security team and sat in one of the most hotly anticipated events in the Fashion Week calendar, you’d think she would be safe enough to just wear, you know, a t-shirt.


Obviously not.

It turns out the vest was probably more for fashion, rather than stopping the penetration of bullets, but it didn’t stop the internet letting rip on Kim and Kanye’s choice of attire for their toddler.

Nice fake bulletproof vest, North.
Nice fake bulletproof vest, North.

“Find it a bit bizzare north west goes about her innocent minded infant days in a 'bulletproof vest' for 'fashion' slight distasteful move,” wrote one. Another added: “Why does North West need a bullet proof vest? Other than the fact that it rhymes.”

Some did see the funny side however, with one witty person coming up: “Amber Rose fired so many shots at the kardashians that Kim had to get north a bulletproof vest LMAO.”

LMAO, indeed.

North wasn’t the only person wearing the new ‘in’ thing however, with one reviewer commenting on the theme throughout the show. “There were immaculate flak vests and officer sweaters that looked like they’ve actually taken shrapnel.”

"This is my dad. He's got a silly name which I can't pronounce because I'm still very much a baby. He likes the sound of his own voice but he's quite good at jiggling me up in the air until I'm sick on his head. The Mum laughs and Dad gets cross."

"Sometimes when I have a bad hair day I command Mum to make me look like a baby chick. She loves it. Look at her - she can't keep her hands off my button nose."

"Mum and Dad got dressed up all silly today and Granny Kris kept crying and Auntie Khloe drank too much of Mum's Mummy Juice and fell over. It was fun, even when I had a nappy accident in my white dress. Actually, that was the best bit."

"This is me with some peasants who came to wish me a happy first birthday. I don't know what was in that cake, but I knew I wanted to wear it in my hair."

"I was all set to go to the gym but then Mum showed up in this frankly unacceptable top and I made her go and get changed."

God, I hate when my staff can't get their s**t together. Where's my goddamn car? I refuse to be carried one step further."

"This is the day Dad took me to the place he called a Stoo-dee-O. I didn't really understand what it was for because all Dad did was play me some of his music. Didn't think much of it TBH - I much prefer Twinkle Twinkle."

"Mum dressed us in matching outfits today. Soooo cringeworthy. It's alright though - I smushed some banana onto her top during lunch so she had to go and change. That'll teach her - get your own style, Mum!"

"Me and Dad reeeeeally wanted to go to soft-play but Mum said Granny Kris was coming over and Dad said something under his breath that sounded like, "For God's sake why did you ever give her that spare key" and Mum said, "What did you say?" and Dad said, "Nothing, darling!" and Mum said, "Humph" and anyway we ended up not going to soft-play."
