In the words of Karl Lagerfeld, “It is never too early to care about fashion.” The same seems to be true when it comes to modeling, as least in the case of little North West. The 13-month-old daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian has made her modeling debut in this fall’s issue of CR Fashion Book.

The photo, taken by photographer Michael Avedon for an editorial spread called “Legends,” is captioned with Lagerfield’s words and dubs the littlest West the “Future” of fashion. Carine Roitfeld, the former French Vogue editor and the found of CR Fashion Book, styled little North for the shoot, pairing her with a Chanel brooch and bag, and some Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings.

Did we mention that this is a baby we’re talking about here? But while it might all sound just a wee bit ridiculous, it’s important to remember that North isn’t just any baby: She’s already appeared in the pages of Vogue, along with her parents, and is due to appear in the upcoming wedding episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Then there’s the countless paparazzi photos she’s already appeared in throughout her young life, not to mention her mother’s Instagram feed. With that in mind, a black-and-white photo shoot wearing high-fashion labels doesn’t really seem all that out of line.
