KIM Kardashian often enjoys taking her eldest daughter, North, to fashion shows and celebrity events.
But when it comes to dressing the nine-year-old, fans say the reality star mom misses the mark.
In a video shared on TikTok, the pre-teen channeled the essence of Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, as she sported a head-to-toe black leather ensemble, a full face of makeup, and let her curly locks flow down to match the singer’s look.
North’s two friends also dressed their parts, playing Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes to complete the group.
The video showed the youngsters undergoing their makeovers by a glam squad and taking mirror selfies in their full costumes.
However, critics took issue with North’s grown-up costume, and voiced their opinions in an online thread.
“At the risk of sounding like a hater, but they look way too grown up?? Why can’t they just have a normal kids costume?” one person questioned.
“Inappropriate for a child,” bluntly stated another.
“This song & the lyrics are a bit too adult for girls this age!” someone else complained, while others pleaded for the SKIMS founder to let her daughter “just be a kid.”

But that’s far from the first time Kim has been slammed for dressing North in clothing many find inappropriate.
As early as 2014, when North was only a year old, Kim was dressing her in matching (designer) clothes.
At Paris Fashion Week’s Givenchy show, mom and daughter both sported risqué black lace mesh dresses.
Kim accessorised hers with a black leather jacket, while North went without.
To accompany the frock, Kim – whose own gown sported a daring plunging neckline and was sheer from top to toe – dressed North in tiny black leggings.
It came a week after critics accused Kim and dad Kanye West for “inappropriately” dressing North in a leather skirt with matching leggings.
In March, The Skims founder and her mini-me wore white makeup, black lipstick and smeared black eyeliner as they got into the goth spirit.
They were also joined by Kim’s older sister Kourtney‘s daughter Penelope, who also wore emo makeup.
The trio mouthed the lyrics to Machine Gun Kelly and Willow’s song Emo Girl.
This time, Kim’s biggest critic was Kanye.
Back in January, the controversial rapper hit out at Kim for letting North wear lipstick and post on TikTok.
In an interview on Hollywood Unlocked, he said: “Don’t have my daughter wearing lipstick on TikTok, or don’t have her on TikTok at all, if I’m not there to approve that.
“It was done without me knowing and it happened again so I feel like it’s poking the bear, trying to antagonize me or create this ‘crazy’ narrative.”
In May, Kim was shamed for allowing North “inappropriate” satin corset at Kourtney Kardashian’s Italy wedding.
North donned a constrictive beige corset with a fur pink coat and lattice pants – pairing the layers with a cute bejeweled purse.
On Reddit, one user remarked: “The mom in me doesn’t like the corset on an 8yr [old].”
Another added: “May in Italy and this poor child in a coat.”
While one person agreed with the outfit being too much in the heat, writing: “She must be melting.”
Just a few months later, Kim was ripped for letting North rock a “mature” accessory on a trip to Europe for Paris Fashion Week.
North, and her fashion choices, were photographed several times during the trip, with many fans keying in on a subtle aspect of her appearance: a nose ring.
After Kim was seen sporting a fake hoop nose ring with a chain connecting it to something else, her oldest daughter took a turn.
Fans took issue with the accessory, accusing Kim of allowing her to act too grown up.
On Twitter, one fan commented: “Is it just me but.. That nose ring is way too grown for North to be wearing at that age.”
Another tweeted: “The nose ring is a little much for a child but go off North.”
And one went a different direction: “I don’t mind the nose ring or the style. What I do find weird is that North West never had a childhood and won’t have one.
“Never got to dress like a kid, go to school, be normal or meet new people organically.”
During another trip to Paris in October, North tried to avoid attention in a full face mask, shocking fans with the hot, leather fashion statement.
The young lady opted for the full head covering, only exposing her hair extensions escaping from the mask.
Online, fans were not in favor of the look.
“This makes me so sad,” one person shared.
Another added: “She’ll be scarred for life.”
While a third speculated: “The kid is following in (Kim and Kanye’s) footsteps of crazy.”
It wasn’t exactly clear if the fashion covering was a choice or statement, but it was reminiscent of times both of her parents opted for similar looks.
In July, Kim was slammed for covering her entire face in a “creepy” mask as part of a Balenciaga look.
Meanwhile, Kanye has been known to don several masks over the years that cover his face in its entirety.
