Kris Jenner, mother of five dragons, also gets to call herself grandmother. There's North and Saint West, of course, and also Mason and Reign Disick. But according to a highly scientific analysis of the family, Penelope Disick is the absolute best of all the Kardasho-Jenner-Disick grandchildren.
Yesterday, Kris dressed her (clearly favorite) grandkid Penelope in a lemon-printed look that perfectly matched her own. Kourtney posted the picture with the caption, "This is what happens when I leave town," referring to her latest trip to London.

Somehow it's doubtful Kris got these coordinating looks from a catalogue, like so many mothers did in the '90s.
