Get it, North West! On Friday, February 22, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to announce that her 5-year-old daughter landed her first-ever solo magazine cover. Yes, you read that correctly. Nori has been alive less than a decade and is already killing the game. Sigh. Must be nice.
“My most stylish and beautiful baby girl North shot her 1st cover for @wwd!!!! She loves fashion and beauty and has so much fun doing this!” the proud mama, 38, gushed.

Move over millennials, a new generation is coming of age. At five years old, North West, the famous daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, has captivated the digital realm with her cross-generational appeal. Without a public Instagram or YouTube channel of her own, she’s too young to fully understand what a digital footprint is. And yet, hers is already wildly popular. We’ve watched North West grow on Instagram and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and magazines — here, she poses for her first solo cover. Her distinct fashion sense belies her age, and lately, so does her eye for makeup. West, whether she knows it or not, is at the forefront of a generation that is highly connected, engaged with fashion and beauty and individualistic in style. Called Alpha, signifying a new beginning, this age group is unlike any the world has ever seen. And combined with Gen Z, their slightly older counterparts, their numbers are strong. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2025, people aged 17 and under will comprise 43 percent of the U.S. population. Already, they are significant consumers of beauty: According to NPD, 69 percent of Gen Zers use color cosmetics and 68 percent have a skin-care regimen. With numbers like that, Alphas and Gen Z are expected to have a sociocultural and economic impact equal to that of their parents or older siblings, the Millennials. Read more on WWD.com, link in bio.

Kiki also showed her little beauty some love on Twitter. “I’m seriously so proud of my Northie! She picked her looks and eyeliner color and is so involved and loves fashion and beauty so much so she has the best time at her @wwd shoot! Kanye and I always say she’s Kristen Crawley’s style twin.”

The KUWTK star went on to reveal that North had one very special modeling request. “All she wanted was nachos on shoot day and we made that happen!” Ummm, can you say #relatable?
Of course, fans of the famous family are just as proud of North. “This is so epic. OMG. I love it,” one user wrote. “That’s so cute! What a gorgeous girl,” added another.
As much as we loved to see North on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with her dad and little brother, Saint West, we definitely think that Kim’s mini me was born to shine alone. We have no doubt that this will be the first of many North West modeling gigs to come. Even her aunt and fellow model Kendall Jenner agrees! “Giving me a run for my money that’s for sure,” she wrote on Twitter.
