She may only be 17 months old, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter North West is already the most stylish kid on the playground. Fame runs in the family for this little starlet and baby Nori proved her fashion credentials are on point this weekend by borrowing some – oh so on-trend – mirrored Aviators from her Aunt Khloe.

Khloe Kardashian shared the picture on social-networking site Instagram with the caption ‘Stunna shades #YouCantSitWithUs.’ alongside the cute snap which had us cooing and giggling in the B Sunglasses office. Naturally, Harper Beckham and Blue Ivy will have to up their game to stay ahead of the baby fashion pack for Spring/Summer 2015 because North is already headed in the right direction!

Funnily enough Zosia is equally as cool and stylish in real life and has recently announced a collaboration with friend and designer Cynthia Rowley for an eeyewear collection. Based on the 1950s inspired cateye and named the Miss Z model, Zosia told Teen Vogue she wwanted them to have the feel of ‘an old movie star’.
