The location: a luxurious chateau on the outskirts of Paris.
The host: world-renowned Italian fashion designer Valentino.
The occasion: a lavish breakfast ahead of your parents’ eye-wateringly expensive Italian wedding ceremony.
It’s not exactly every 11-month-old’s idea of a fun day out but baby North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, appeared to be right at home in the opulent surroundings of Valentino’s French chateau. Arriving for her parents’ pre-wedding luncheon on her mother’s hip, she wore a simple sleeveless dress, described by Vogue reporter and lunch invitee André Leon Talley as ‘anthracite gray – and tights, no shoes’.
Once inside, Nori nibbled on dark chocolate and vegetable tempura and, according to our Vogue insider, ‘cried not once nor grimaced’.
North West, who turns 1 next month, also apparently gazed wide-eyed as the extravagant banquet, featuring white porcelain swans and Meissen monkey candlesticks, unfolded around her.
And, says André Leon Talley, was clearly heard calling rapper dad Kanye, “Pa”. Sweet!
