It’s North West’s world, we’re just living it. This was apparent after the latest episode of The Kardashians, in which the 10-year-old cover star—who is rumoured to have an estimated net worth of AUD$500 million—came for nearly every single member of her family who attended the 2023 Met Gala (and then some).

Like her father, Kanye West, the ‘nepo baby’ has developed a reputation for her forthright candidness and brutally honest critiques. And with her sun in Gemini—the astrological sign known for being the best communicators—we understand that her scathing reviews come from a place of affection, not malice. As the parody account “Nori’s Black Book” would say, West is just trying to help people be the best versions of themselves.

In the most recent episode of the reality series, West took a page out of her mother’s, Kim Kardashian, book and got “up and worked!” Within the 36-minute run time, West managed to appraise the Met Gala looks of her mother, her aunt, Kendall Jenner, Kardashian’s former ex-boyfriend, Pete Davidson, and even Schiaparelli creative director Daniel Roseberry. All in a day’s work for North!

Within the first minutes of meeting the couturier in New York, West had already delivered some notes for the designer. “I heard you were into the look,” the American-born creative director remarked. Without missing a beat, West responded with a blasé, “Yeah, well, it could just be a little bit better.” When asked what changes she would make to elevate the look, West revealed she would want Kardashian to wear a bra and that there are “way too many gaps in the pearls”. “It looks like she’s a little Hawaiian girl with her dress all ripped,” West also noted before adding, “The pearls look fake.”

In a confessional, Kardashian revealed this wasn’t a common occurrence: “I had John Galliano fitting me for a dress and North was giving notes. This is just her vibe.” However, she did give Roseberry’s design a special mention given it was the first time West actually liked one of Kardashian’s Met Gala looks. West has never attended a Met Gala, given the event’s strict rules about guests under 18 years of age being prohibited, but Kardashian was pregnant with her when she attended her first Met in the infamous floral Givenchy dress in 2013.

We’re unsure if Roseberry had ever received such pointed feedback, especially delivered by an eloquent ten-year-old, but he did confirm that West’s criticisms were “his worst nightmare come to life”. “It feels like I’m getting ‘punked’, being read for filth the night before the Met Gala by a nine-year-old,’ Roseberry added.

It seems that was the sentiment discerned by all who were victims of West’s scathing eye, especially Davidson. Though the comedian previously had an ‘N’ branded onto his chest, it seems the once-held affection is no longer reciprocated. Watching the Met live stream from a nearby hotel room, West remarked that she “hates it” in between bites of popcorn. “You’re going to the Met Gala Pete, not the gas station.” Penelope Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, noted that Jared Leto’s Choupette ensemble was “kind of cringe.”

It does sound like West has a lesson in manners coming her way upon her arrival back to her Calabasas mansion. “There’s a way to be honest and not hurt people’s feelings, and I want you to learn that,” Kardashian said. Perhaps that’s a storyline they’re saving for season four.
