It seems we can’t go a full day without hearing something about the fashionable exploits of the Kardashian-West konglomerate. The pair has embedded themselves so deeply into the fashion scene that folks have no other choice but to surrender and allow them to do their thing.

The couple’s carefully curated complementing (sometimes outright matching) outfits are instant tabloid fodder, whether Kanye’s wearing a skirt or showing as much cleavage as his well-endowed wife. The style-obsessed parents have also dragged their toddler daughter into the mix, outfitting her in all manner of textiles most of us wouldn’t let near anyone under the age of 15. Their efforts in the style department are not lost on André Leon Talley, who this month in a piece for Zappos Couture, proclaimed Kim, Kanye and baby North the “First Fashion Family.”

Talley notes the trio’s “force of iconic moments” during Paris Fashion Week as the reason, but we’re pretty sure what made those moments so iconic is that they were annoying to everyone else. It is also quite interesting that Talley would make such a proclamation, when just two years ago he was throwing a wee bit of shade in Kim’s direction in regards to her absence at the 2012 Met Ball, from which she was rumored to have been banned. “I don’t think any celebrity can take away from fashion. Not even Kim Kardashian could take away from fashion,” he quipped.

His opinion has clearly changed. Two years later, it looks like ALT thinks that Kim, her husband and daughter are simply adding to the fashion conversation. We guess there are no hard feelings between the editor and the Kardashian-Wests, who blurred out Talley’s face during their televised wedding special
