North West gets cranky in high-wattage front row at Kanye's Adidas show

Sometimes a kid has to be a kid -- like when North West started front-row fussing at her dad's NYFW show

North West apparently had her fill of New York Fashion Week on Thursday -- and unfortunately, her crying moment came while her dad Kanye West's runway show for his Adidas Original collaboration was in full swing.

Pictures show the 20-month-old crying during the presentation while on either side of her Beyonce and Vogue's Anna Wintour cast their eyes anywhere but on the toddler in Kim Kardashian's arms.

Kardashian ultimately took Nori backstage, where she calmed down, Billboard reported.

Was it simply a case of a child getting cranky at an event designed for adults, or was Nori having a diva moment? After all, the  star power in the front row at the show was crazy.

The lineup included designer Alexander Wang, Cassie Ventura with beau P. Diddy, Jay Z, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour. Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner also had primo seats.

Apparently, even Taylor Swift was supposed to attend.

"She was supposed to be here today," West told Vogue's Andre Leon Talley after the show (via Us Weekly). "So I don't know what happened."

Big Sean and Pusha T -- who would later perform with Kanye West at the inaugural Roc City Classic -- sat a row back, near where Justin Bieber was planted.

It's sometimes easy to forget North's a child, given her fashionista parents' habit of dressing her in dark neutrals like a tiny adult.

She even sported a fur coat Wednesday against New York City's freezing temps. Mom's rep told Page Six that the coat was a gift but didn't elaborate on whether it was real or faux fur. If real, it'd go for about $3,500, according to an estimate from a retailer who identified it to the paper as crystal fox fur.

That'd get a person 10 pairs of Yeezy Boosts, the $350 gray-suede sneaker boot that's the headliner in Kanye's line of shoes and apparel for Adidas.

Did they make any in toddler size, we wonder?
