North West, you may have noticed, is not your typical 16-month-old. She posts up in the front row of Balenciaga and gets hand-written invitations to Givenchy. Her modeling career's already gone further than most 20-year-olds'. And, of course, you will never catch Ms. West wearing a Gerber cotton onesie — oh, no. North sports black lace baby-goth gowns, and miniature Balenciaga ensembles on a casual day.
And, now, the secret behind her enviable wardrobe has been revealed. The Daily Mail reports that the wee West has her very own stylist-slash-tailor. The tailor reportedly plans North's outfits months in advance, and was hired by her parents "to ensure that Kim and [North] always coordinate." To accomplish this, the tailor is responsible for creating mini-me versions of Kim's designer outfits, and commissions some pieces directly from the designers themselves. No word yet on whether duplicate outfits are needed in case of any drooling incidents.
