It seems little 20-month-old North West has been the talk of the town this New York Fashion Week, sitting front-row with other A-listers such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Anna Wintour. However the tears were flowing the other day at her dad’s runway show for Adidas. Kanye came out and said he thought North was crying so much because “She just wanted people to stop being mean to her daddy.” 

However according to photographer Kevin Tachman, North’s crying was due to the presence of a stuffed money animal, which she could see across the runway. “I brought the monkey to have fun with the models as I primarily shoot backstage, and it’s always a good way to make the girls smile,” Tachman told Us Weekly. North saw the toy and was reminded of one she has at home that looks very similar (see below). 

Tachman happily obliged and gave North the monkey to stop the flow of tears, and all was well once again good in the front row. “Kim was sweet and gracious when I gave her the monkey and made sure to get it back to me before she left,” he said.
