Anna Wintour looks to ban babies from NYFW after North West’s tantrum


It looks as though little adorable North West is already setting precedents as we’re sure her parents, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, hoped she would though we’re sure they didn’t have this in mind.

Last week the adorable 20-month-old made quite the stir by throwing an epic tantrum while sitting front row at West’s adidas show as well as Alexander Wang’s show. Pictures of celebs such as Beyoncé, Jay Z, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour looking noticeably disturbed by North’s behavior soon flooded the Internet.

According to Radar Online, Wintour later voiced her displeasure about the episode to both Kardashian and West, and went on to tell colleagues she thinks small children should not be allowed at such shows.

“Anna doesn’t think fashion shows are appropriate for very young children such as North West,” an industry insider told Radar. “The loud music, the lights from the show, along with flashes from all of the cameras, and of course, all of the people is just overwhelming to a toddler. Anna never would have brought her now-adult children to fashion shows when they were young.”

Unfortunately for Kimye, this is not the first time they’ve been accused of causing a disruption at major fashion events.

Last fall, the pair earned the dubious nickname “the fashion flu” from some of their fellow fashion aficionados while attending Paris Fashion Week. Also described by one insider as “the ultimate try-hards,”  the couple drew large swarms of paparazzi and caused commotions by showing up noticeably late to runway shows.
