The reality TV star, 33, and rapper, 36, are photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz coddling their little one at home. In one sweet snapshot, Kardashian lounges on a mocha leather couch wearing a white satin long sleeve gown by Nina Ricci. Her fiance, wearing Prada leather pants and no top, rests his head on Kardashian’s lap, while baby Nori lies on top of her dad. The little one’s mom lovingly rests her left hand — engagement bling included — across North’s bare behind, while the baby gives the camera lens a quizzical stare.
Vogue editor-at-large and writer Hamish Bowles describes Nori as “pretty,” while noting that the baby has “inherited her father’s furrowed, quizzical brow.” Bowles adds that Kimye’s child is the “focus of all this attention” in the home of grandmother Kris Jenner, who Kim says prefers to go by “Lovey” rather than “Grandma” to her three grandchildren — North, and cousins Mason and Penelope Disick.
“I take pictures of her all the time and dress her up,” Kim told the fashion mag of her baby girl. “I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, ‘What up, Daddy?'” Bowles observes that the Yeezus hitmaker, meanwhile, has created a fun frame video of his daughter moving around like any child would, but he’s edited the clip to “make it appear as if she’s break-dancing.”
While North West steals the spotlight in the Vogue spread, parents Kim and Kanye share a steamy moment alone in another one of Leibovitz’s photos. The two are seen affectionately sharing an eskimo kiss while Kanye embraces the Kim, and she adoringly looks into her fiance’s eyes.
As seen in the behind-the-scenes video posted on Vogue.com on Friday, March 21, the couple is seen affectionately holding their little one and coddling her throughout their long-awaited photoshoot with the fashion magazine. Click here to see more pics from the shoot.
