There’s no doubt that Kim Kardashian is a fashionista in her own right. From head-turning red-carpet ensembles to trendsetting street style looks, the star is certainly one to watch on the fashion scene. So it comes as no surprise that her daughter, North, has somewhat turned into a mini-me and is pretty much the most fashionable 6-year-old on the planet.
To celebrate Halloween, North’s aunt, Kourtney Kardashian, posted an adorable snap of the 6-year-old along with her cousin, Penelope, and a friend, but North’s costume seems to be causing quite a stir and landed mom, Kim, at the center of some backlash. Now online mom-shamers are slamming the reality star and beauty mogul for one particular aspect of North’s Halloween look… Advertisement
Kim is the second eldest of the Kardashian clan.
The family was propelled to celebrity stardom on their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and are now one of the most famous families in the world. Advertisement
But she’s has gone off on her own beauty-related ventures in recent years.
The star runs her highly successful beauty empire, KKW Beauty, and has established herself as a successful entrepreneur. Advertisement
She is also a big player in the fashion scene.

For example, her ocean-wet, Thierry Mugler look for this year’s Met Gala (which, let’s be honest, didn’t entirely fit the theme – but let’s not break the habit of a lifetime) was widely commented on.
Her street style is highly sought after.
So much so, that several fast-fashion outlets quickly snap up her looks so that people can look just like her for a fraction of the cost. Advertisement
So, it comes as no surprise that her kids are pretty fashionable too.
Kim has 4 children – North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 1, and Psalm, 3 months.
With a mom like Kim Kardashian, it’s hardly a shock that her children frequently look runway ready. Advertisement
But North, in particular, seems to have followed in her mom’s fashion-forward footsteps.

For a 6-year-old, she’s extremely stylish.
Do they do those outfits in adult sizes? Because it’s not a want, it’s a need . Advertisement
She’s even been on the front of WWD.
The tot bagged herself her first-ever high-fashion cover this year. “My most stylish and beautiful baby girl North shot her 1st cover for @wwd !!!! She loves fashion & beauty and has so much fun doing this,” wrote a very proud Kim Kardashian. Advertisement
According to Kim, she regularly tries to steal from her closet.
The star posted these hilarious pics from when North styled herself and was subsequently told that she couldn’t wear the pink snakeskin boots.
Safe to say, it looks like she had a meltdown. We’ve all been there. Advertisement
And it seems like, the older she’s getting, the more she’s keen to dabble in fashion. Twitter // @KimKardashian
Following a recent trip to Japan, Kim gushed over her daughter as she posted the cutest fashion snaps.
Oh and those envy-worthy outfits? Well, that was courtesy of Miss North West, according to mom.
On a Twitter post, the star wrote: “My Northie girl is the ultimate fashionista! She comes with me to fabric stores and picks out what she likes and for our Japan trip I let her style herself.”
“I should have let her style me too lol,” she joked. Advertisement
During a family trip to the Bahamas over Labor Day weekend, Kim was keen to show off her daughter’s style.
Kim shared a photo of North hanging out with her friends (and cousin, Penelope Disick, of course), all of whom donned coordinated neon looks complete with Dr. Marten boots.
But of course, with Halloween having passed, Kim went all-out for her daughter’s costume.
North, along with cousin Penelope and a friend, were dressed up to the nines for their elementary school Halloween parade. Advertisement
North portrayed the devil.

The 6-year-old was visibly wearing makeup, despite her “born-again” Christian father, Kanye West, reportedly putting a strict ban on her wearing makeup until she’s a teenager. Advertisement
Kim recently admitted that Kayne’s newly-conservative views are putting a strain on their relationship. “North is trying to get in on the makeup, but she’s being blocked heavily because her dad has stopped all makeup for her until she is a teenager,” the reality star explained to E! News . Advertisement
“It’s a big fight in the household right now.”
“I think as a parent you just learn and figure it out as you go and we realized we didn’t really want her to wear makeup at a young age but she sees her mom putting on lipstick and lip gloss.” Advertisement
And it seems parents online agree with Kanye on this one.
After seeing the post, many people slammed Kim’s decision to let her daughter wear makeup, specifically mentioning Kayne’s recent change in heart over the matter.
“I’m surprised Daddy Kanye was okay with her wearing this costume,” wrote one user. Advertisement
Other’s pointed out the irony of the costume.
“Didn’t her father just release a whole gospel album?” wrote one user. “I thought the family are born again Christians??? …the devil is the lord’s arch enemy,” added another. Advertisement
Though, some saw the funny side.
“She’s trolling Kanye at such a young age,” wrote a fan.
But, the backlash doesn’t seem to have phased Kim. She hasn’t responded to the comments, and we don’t blame her. After all, she can parent how she wants and, judging by her social media pics, North is well and truly living her best life.
In more positive news, Kim has been praised for ditching her usual heavy makeup to share a rare make-up free selfie with son, Psalm.
