A Lesson In Stealing Someone's Thunder, As Told By North West At Kanye’s Yeezy Show

A Lesson In Stealing Someone's Thunder, As Told By North West At Kanye’s Yeezy Show

Sorry Kanye West, but all eyes were on North for the ENTIRETY of your SS16 show

Yesterday, rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West debuted his second Yeezy collection at New York Fashion Week, and boy was it… beige.

Homing in on his unique design aesthetic, his SS16 line hasn’t strayed far from his initial vision. Models took to the space in nude body stockings, ripped smocks and tonal desert boots, as his pregnant wife Kim Kardashian looked on from the FROW, alongside her her sisters Khloe, Kourtney and Kendall Jenner.

While it looked like the youngest member of the Kardashian brood, Kylie Jenner, was MIA (most likely dying her hair a new shade of awesome), she was in fact part of the model troupe, disguised in a military style cap and khaki over coat.

Also sitting FROW-side were stars Courtney Love, Seth Meyers, Drake, Lorde, fellow designer Riccardo Tisci and the high priestess of fashion herself, Anna Wintour.

However, the bodycon, the celebs and the theatrics of the presentation we’re all overlooked in the wake of the rapper’s daughter North’s cuteness. Serves you right for having such an adorable kid, Kanye.

Here’s a lesson in stealing someone’s thunder, as told by two-year-old North West...

Wear A Killer Outfit
We don’t need to tell you that, if you’re feeling confident in what you’re wearing, you can pretty well do whatever the hell you want. Or, at least, you’ll feel like you can do whatever the hell you want, which is basically the same thing. North made an impact with her look by employing a tried-and-tested street style trick – rocking one colour top-to-toe. What a pro.

Make Yourself Heard
During the proceeding, whatever it may be, draw attention to yourself as soon as the room goes quiet by shouting out words. Loudly. Throughout the Yeezy presentation, North kept yelling ‘Mummy, mummy’, causing everyone to turn and look at her. Eureka.

Get Your Hair Did
The higher the better, as evidenced by North’s pouffed topknot.

Take Full Advantage Of Any Photo-Op That Presents Itself
Spread yourself around and make sure you’re included in as many photographs as possible. It’s all about you, after all. If you're struggling, grab people's phones and cameras and proceed to take snaps of yourself.
