North West is One Expensive Baby


Remember that one time when your parents spent $800,000 on you, as a baby? Didn't think so.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's 1 year-old daughter, North West, is a pretty lucky baby. Parents protect and secure their young ones and that's just what Kim K. and Kanye did. For starters, Kim loves to pamper her darling daughter. She spent a mere $250,000 for designer dresses priced at $600 each, in addition to Chanel booties, Versace rompers, and some Chloe and Christian Dior. But Kim and Kanye West did'nt think they spent enough. We also recently learned that the couple spent $800,000 on a look-a-like of North West and her nanny so as to trick the paparazzi and keep the photogs away from their daughter.

Smart move, Kim. Keep letting the world know that there is never any keeping up with the Kardashians.
