Kim Kardashian has such an extensive collection of Birkins, she’s actually cool with her toddler daughter getting her pricey diaper bag version all wet with milk. Kim added to her collection of soiled expensive purses last week with a birthday gift from her daughter, North, and husband, Kanye West. Apparently, Papa Yeezy purchased a Birkin for his wife and then let little Nori go to town on it, painting the bag into oblivion. According to Kim, the purse was so well-done, she initially thought Kanye had commissioned an artist to do it. “Kanye had a box [with an Hermes purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool and on my computer was this message that said ‘Play’ and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse,” she told the Mirror. “I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing.”

Another Birkin kicks the bucket. But don’t think Kim is worrying about it — she’s got more pressing concerns, like making sure her 16-month-old daughter is dressed to the nines at all times. Kim has come under criticism for how she clothes young North, particularly for that mesh and lace see-through number she outfitted her daughter in for the Givenchy show in Paris last month. But Kim says she dresses her daughter like a mini fashion plate so that North can look back on her baby photos with pride. “It’s hard to find cool baby clothes,” she told Grazia. “Mums want so many frilly things and it’s hard to find a line that doesn’t have all of that. There is nothing worse than when you look at baby photos and you’re like, ‘What was I wearing, why would my mum ever dress me like that.’ I want her to look back and be like, ‘I was dressed so cool.'”

Not that looking “cool” matters if you’re a baby, but we guess when you’re involuntarily in the first family of fashion, you’ve got to keep up appearances.
