Why did North West raise a “Stop” sign at the Jean Paul Gaultier show?


North West knows how to signal to the paparazzi when it’s time to stop.

Kim Kardashian came to Twitter on July 6 to share a video of herself and North sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week—and to add some background; and North held up a handmade note during the video.

Who is Jean Paul Gaultier?

French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier specialises in prêt-à-porter and haute couture. He is referred to be the “enfant terrible” of the fashion world and is famous for his outlandish creations featuring corsets, marinières, and tin cans as themes.

In 1982, Gaultier established his own design house, which he later expanded with a fragrance brand in 1993.

From 2003 to 2010, he served as Hermès’ creative director before stepping down after the company’s 50th-anniversary haute couture show during Paris Fashion Week in January 2020.

In addition to his job in the fashion sector, Gaultier and Antoine de Caunes co-hosted the first seven episodes of the television show Eurotrash from 1993 to 1997.

North West had the opportunity to make both a fashion and a literal statement while attending Paris Fashion Week with her mother, Kim Kardashian.

North held a piece of white paper to the photographer pit during the Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall 2022 presentation on Wednesday while sitting in the front row alongside her mother.

Kim posted a carousel of photographs from their combined public appearance the next day on her Instagram account, finishing with a video of North holding up the sign while gazing dead at the camera.

“For everyone who knows North understands how funny she finds the last slide!” the reality star said in the caption. North, I believe, was fed up with everyone taking pictures of her, so she scribbled STOP on her invitation and held it up, requesting that they focus on the event.”

“As a mom, I’m thankful that my kid loves coming with me on my work trips, and I’m able to bring her and create these memories with my mom,” she added. She also praised her “dear buddy” Olivier Rousteing, the Balmain creative director who worked on Gaultier’s 2018 couture show, stating she “couldn’t be more proud !”

Earlier this week, a video of North addressing the paparazzi, “Why do you have to wait for us all the time?” while strolling from the hotel to the car went viral. Ryan Romulus is the daughter of Kim’s friend and Chief Communications Officer of KKW Brands, Tracy Romulus.

This isn’t the first time North has expressed her discontent with how well-documented her family is in the media. Another video of her crying “No photographs!” at reporters gathered outside her ballet class went viral in 2015, when she was only two years old. The following year, she asked “no pictures,” aimed at her mother, as she tried to hide beneath her fur coat.

In 2019, North questions an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, “Why are there so many people taking pictures of us every day?” “Well, to get extremely scientific – my name is Kim Kardashian,” Kim responds. Kanye West is the father. And papa is a musician. Artiste and performer And mommy has so many talents that I can’t even begin to list them.”
