In the feature, penned by Hamish Bowles, Kardashian said she likes to dress up her daughter by putting "Kanye's big chains around her." She added: "I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, 'What up, Daddy?' " However, for the Vogue shoot, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, North poses nude with Ma and Pa.
It's not surprising that the reality star likes to dress up Nori, since she and her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, used to rummage through her mom's (Kris Jenner's) closet. "One time Kourtney and I sat in my mom's closet -- we must've been eight or nine -- and we were like, 'If Mom dies, we're going to write down who gets what,' " recalls Kim.
She explains that her mom "would always wear really tight -- she was into Vicky Tiel, Moschino, or Chanel -- with huge Moschino heart earrings."
Kardashian -- who Bowles describes as a "cultural phenomenon," and her fiance as a "creative polygot" -- also explained what she admired most about her idol, Elizabeth Taylor.
"Everything seemed so selfless for her," said Kardashian of Taylor, whom she interviewed by phone and email about her jewels. "We talked about the jewelry and how it ultimately didn’t belong to her; she just wanted to help people."
