Kim Kardashian may be considered a fashion icon, but there's one individual that remains unimpressed.

During a new interview with Vogue, the 41-year-old SKIMS mogul admitted that her 8-year-old daughter North West has strong thoughts on mom's signature style.

"North is very opinionated when it comes to what I'm wearing," she said, seemingly referring to her latest Balenciaga looks. "She'll always complain when I'm wearing too much black."

Kim recalled one instance that particularly caught North's attention, sharing, "I showed up at her school on Valentine's Day wearing head-to-toe pink, and she got so excited she ran over and hugged me. [Of course] she opened my coat, saw the black lining, and says ‘Mom, you're still wearing black.'"

North—who Kim shares with ex Kanye West along with Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, Psalm, 2—knows a thing or two about style. She recently styled herself and her siblings in a photo shoot for Vogue's March 2022 cover story, alongside her mom. 

Kim Kardashian's Best Looks

The budding fashionista's disapproval of Kim's dark outfits may come as a surprise to fans, as the KKW Beauty founder recently described her eldest child as "a full on goth girl." 


"North is like goth—she's into Hot Topic," she revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September. "She puts fake tattoos on her face, and she listens to Black Sabbath, and she's just like a full goth girl."

Despite their sartorial differences, the mother-daughter duo also have had their share of cutesy twinning moments. In February, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum posted a pic to Instagram of the two sporting matching pink pajamas covered in hearts.
