The latest accessory for the baby who has everything? A bulletproof vest.

Young Nori West's Anna Wintour-repelling front row tantrum last week meant we didn't pay much attention to her outfit. Kim Kardashian has righted that wrong today with a post for her 26.5 million Instagram and 29 million Twitter followers.

She highlighted her daughter's military style top with the hashtag #BabyYeezyBulletProofVest

Look at my little cutie!!! #DaddysMuse #BabyYeezyBulletProofVest

The 34-year-old reality star is already subject to a constant flow of complaints from fans who object to her dressing her daughter in dark colours, so this latest outfit really riled up some of her followers.

"That's wrong on so many levels," one tweeted.

"Unbelievably distasteful," said another.

"ye cannae make a bullet proof vest cute," Kendra from Glasgow opined.

Even Life & Style Weekly got in a dig. In caps to boot: "The poor kid must be HORRIFIED!" 

But for many, the one-year-old wearing baby armour wasn't the problem - it was the colour of the vest that bothered them.

"How come she is always in black or gray?!!" one Instagrammer asked in response to the picture.

"Think Pink!!! She needs pink in her life," another suggested.

The vest was custom-made by North's rapper/designer dad Kanye West, 37, as part of his first fashion collection, Yeezy. Whether it really is designed to withstand bullets, we don't yet know.

Before her headline-making tantrum, the youngster was seen wearing the tough-looking top as she played happily with her mother ahead of West's Yeezy/Adidas show.
