Kanye West debuted his collaboration with Adidas on Thursday at New York Fashion Week, but it was his 20-month-old daughter, North, who stole some of the attention by having a meltdown in the front row.
And she did it while sitting between two of the most high-profile women around: Beyonce and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
North yelled and squirmed in mom Kim Kardashian’s lap, which is certainly not unexpected behavior for a baby being made to sit through a fashion show.
But it was Wintour’s reaction that made the scene rather comical and encouraged people to snap pictures and post them on social media.

Wearing her signature oversized dark sunglasses, Wintour sat grim-faced with her lips pursed and arms crossed as North threw a fit next to her.
Kardashian tried to calm the baby but finally had to get up and carry the screaming North backstage.
New York Daily News reported that Elle magazine fashion news editor Anne Slowey, who was already in a bad mood because she had trouble getting in the packed event, was heard grumbling unkindly: “Couldn't they leave it backstage?
“Typical celebrity crap. Like I really even care.”
This wasn’t North’s first fashion show. Last September she sat like a pro, no problem, in the front row at the Givenchy runway show at Paris Fashion Week with her mom and dad.
But hey, some days a girl’s just gotta have a good cry.
