Sitting in the front row of the Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture show by Olivier Rousteing, Wednesday July 6, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wanted to send a message.

She is 9 years old, and already knows all the cogs of fame, but intends to play the game by her own rules. While seated in the front row of the Jean Paul Gaultier parade by Olivier Rousteing, this July 6 as part of Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, North West, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, held up a sign with the inscription “Stop” in the direction of the guests taking their picture. A clever way to beg the curious to leave her alone (and create a buzz, at the same time).

The day after the show, her mother, Kim Kardashian, then split a publication on Twitter, sharing the sequence to explain the gesture of her daughter. “Anyone who knows North knows that she finds this video very funny! I think that'[elle] had had enough of people taking pictures of her, so she wrote on her STOP invitation and held it up to focus on the show,” the ex-wife of Kanye West said.

As soon as the show came out, a few hours after brandishing its message, North West, renowned for its impertinence, had also reiterated its annoyance by directly addressing the paparazzi present on the spot. “Why are you waiting for us all the time?”, can we hear him say on another video, also posted on social networks. And one of them to answer him, not without a touch of irony: “Because you are so famous, North!”.

The counterattack

As such, if fans of the Kardashian clan supported the 9-year-old girl, others were quick to react, calling the inertia of her mother, Kim Kardashian, hypocritical. “That’s mostly how your family makes money, with videos and photos. Maybe you should tell him now!” wrote one. And a second to add: “It is up to the mother to protect the privacy of her children. But no, her mother sells, exposes her image, that of her children, and then she complains…”. If the message divides, one thing is certain: the Kardashian clan always excels in communication.
