Reality star Kim Kardashian, rapper husband Kanye West and their toddler daughter North West were guests of honor at Alexander Wang's heavy metal meets gothic grunge Saturday at New York Fashion Week.

But there was something troubling the 18-month-old was seated in her mother Kim Kardashian's lap in the front row.


She threw the tantrum of the night, squirming, bawling and tears rolling down.

While North cried we witnessed a rare scene - Kanye West crack a smile.

West tried to console his daughter North with a big grin as she threw yet another tantrum.


A similar situation occurred on Thursday at Kanye's debut at Fashion Week when the tot bawled front row while seated next to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.

She bawled loud while her parents clapped as the models walked the runway, neighbor Nicki Minaj didn't seem to enjoy te moment and dug herself deep in her smartphone.


North's meltdown unmoved Kim who tried to distracted Nori with paper elephants to play with.

When everything failed Kanye took his daughter out to calm her down.

Paparazzi swooped on the family, in particular baby North, who was kitted out in a custom-made Wang skirt edged with the same silver studs that played a starring role on the catwalk.


Guests braved snow and freezing weather to attend the show at a warehouse in New York's gritty Lower East Side overlooked by housing projects that are home to some of Manhattan's poorest residents.


Models with oily, tousled hair and nude lips, who included baby North's aunt Kendall Jenner, powered down the runway in black, black and yet more black in a show that won rave reviews and thundering applause.

Even fashion queen Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor-in-chief, put her hands together for enthusiastic claps as the boyish Wang ran down the catwalk at the end, dressed in a monochrome plaid shirt with his long hair flying.

The signature look of his 2015 fall/winter collection was the silver stud, which hemmed jackets, coats and dresses ran in vertical stripes, embellished bags and made a quilt-style effect.

His models wore enormous studded chokers, studded V-necks and sported watch-style chains hanging from zipped pockets, and silver zips ran up and down the throat.

There were cropped leather biker jackets, and sharply tailored trousers, military-style oversized jackets with silver buttons and a dressing gown-style coat edged at the collar, hem and on the sash with studs.

Velvet and leather was paired with wool to add textures, and shoulders were cut out to expose bare skin - a key trend on the catwalk this season.

The only splash of color came in the form of a red tartan parka coat and an oversized waistcoat.
