Fashion Week

What happened when Nori West had a front row tantrum next to Anna Wintour and Beyonce

Kanye West debuting his design skills for Adidas at New York Fashion Week was never going to be a quiet affair - and his daughter Nori saw to that when she threw a tantrum from the front row of his show.

Mum Kim Kardashian, who was flanked by Beyonce and Jay-Z on one side and fashion queen Anna Wintour on the other, bravely kept the one-year-old on her knee to watch West's designs hit the catwalk.

But she soon had to duck backstage when the youngster decided her dad's show wasn't for her.

Wintour's reaction to the screeching child was snapped in all its haughty magnificence by Complex Style:

It had all started out so promisingly, with the beaming youngster, who was dressed in a cute black dress and sporting a tiny topknot, playing happily with her mother on the deserted frow:

Perhaps it's a mother's instinct, but Kim appeared a little nervous about what may lie ahead once the show got going:

Then things got a little awkward, as everyone pretended to ignore Nori's tantrum:

Once she saw to it that little Nori was entertained backstage, Kim concentrated on the show - though Wintour still seemed a little wary of the reality star:
