Every parent relishes his or her child's firsts. First words, first steps, first time she keeps solids down. Today, a very special small human, Saint West, is experiencing his first fashion week and mom couldn't be prouder. Just look at her face. Well, look at the right side of her face:
Kim Kardashian takes North and baby Saint West to New York https://t.co/bVji7v943h— Kardashian News (@KardashianNewsb) February 9, 2016
Wow, that's pride. In the photos, North, Saint, and Kim, were boarding a plane from LA to New York to support dad Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 show. That's all scheduled to go down in a concert/collection presentation spectacular at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night.
If there really is a fashion god who loves us, Saint will be front row and step up his look for the event. Nothing too crazy. Just try a little harder than a blanket covering your whole face and body, you know? Be better than a blanket.
In a fun, diet-shaming twist to this novel moment in Saint's life, the Daily Mail reported that the trip was Kim's first outing with him since her self-imposed "diet exile." The publication edited the headline after Kim called it out on Twitter:
I've brought my babies over friends/fam houses, parks & restaurants but because a picture wasn't taken it didn't happen & I'm in exile? smh— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 9, 2016
The answer to that question is "yes, Kim. Unequivocally, yes." Even so, the Daily Mail instead called her absence from the public eye "maternity leave." That might not have the same ring to it as "diet exile," but it sure affords more hope for a better tomorrow.
