North West, the 5-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, made her runway debut Saturday at the L.O.L. Surprise fashion show for kids.

The little girl wore a red pleather jacket and matching skirt, with a black crop top that zipped up the front, and black loafers with white socks. She was giving total Thriller vibes and had her hair up in a pouf while sporting red lipstick, along with oversize red sunglasses and a black Gaia bag.

In the videos you can hear her excited mom and friends cheering “Go, Northie!”


The event in Palisades Park, Calif., was a doll-inspired fashion show to promote L.O.L. Surprise‘s popular toy line, with outfits mirroring the toy line’s characters. Obviously the runway was covered in glitter, and by the looks of the videos proud mom Kim K. posted on Snapchat, it was a kid-friendly good time.


North was not the only little girl dressed up in a crop top, and commenters on fan pages like KimKardashianSnapchat had a mixed reaction to the looks.

Ew, why do you want to oversexualize a 5 year old?” one wrote.

Another questioned if North was actually having fun, writing,She looks honestly so miserable, why can’t Kim just give her a normal childhood.”

That was a forced walk. Her fake mom forced her to do it because she needs to be relevant,” wrote another.

Others thought it was all in good fun and loved North’s runway walk.

Love that turn at the end,” one fan wrote.

Another loved the look, writing, “She is beautiful gorgeous all wrapped up in one!”

Other celeb-kids hitting the runway included Busy Philipps’s daughter Birdie, 10, and Sara Foster’s daughter Valentina, 7.
