André Leon Talley—former Vogue Editor-at-Large, current Artistic Director for Zappos Couture, avid cape-wearer—wrote an article for the site’s web magazine, in which he crowns the West family (Baby North included) the first family of fashion. Sigh.
“The three were a force of iconic moments as they pivoted around Paris, the mecca of fashion,” he wrote in his fashion week roundup. “It’s the new FFF: First Family of Fashion.”
Among heaps of praise about their well-styled ensembles while sitting front row at Paris Fashion week, Talley describes them as the “Nick and Nora Charles of our time, the Liz and Dick Burton, without the brawls.”
While many critics had much to say about Kanye’s breast-baring top at the Lanvin show, Talley is quick to label it his best look. As for Kim, he bestows the honor upon her all-Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy get-up, saying, “At the best moment, there’s nothing like naughty lace caging the body with a leather biker jacket.”
Labeled “the new sexy” by Talley, one of the most respected voices in fashion, Kim, Kanye and North have a lot to live up to when next Fashion Week rolls around.
