North West is continuing to follow in her mom’s fashionista footsteps — this time, on her first solo magazine cover.

Kanye and Kim Kardashian West‘s oldest child, 5½, appears on the front and inside the pages of WWD Beauty Inc, with the publication referring to the little girl as being “at the forefront of a generation that is highly connected, engaged with fashion and beauty and individualistic in style.”

“Called Alpha, signifying a new beginning, this age group is unlike any the world has ever seen,” the magazine continues of the batch of youngsters that will succeed Generation Z. (Another member of this group? John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‘s daughter Luna Simone, 2½.)

North poses for WWD in a variety of colorful outfits and makes use of kid-friendly props like parasols, toys and even bubbles.

While her WWD shoot is her first cover all by herself, it’s hardly North’s first foray into the editorial sphere.

In August 2017, the little girl accompanied Kardashian West, 38, on a journey to the past for Interview magazine‘s September cover story, wearing looks seemingly ripped from vintage photographs of late former First Lady Jackie Kennedy and her family in the accompanying photo series.

Kardashian West’s callback to Kennedy’s iconic chic style was obvious, from her bouffant hairstyle to her strands of white pearls. North wore matching white gloves, a black Bonpoint dress and sweet frilly socks in some of the photos (in many of which she was captured snoozing on her reality-star mom).

Almost a year later, North appeared alongside the KKW Beauty mogul and grandmother Kris Jenner to front Fendi’s #MeandMyPeekaboo campaign in honor of the 10th anniversary launch of the brand’s iconic Peekaboo bag, posing in candid and spontaneous shots taken in Los Angeles that captured the intimate, personal side of their family.

North stomped the catwalk for the first time two months later, in September 2018, appearing as Thrilla during the L.O.L. Surprise Fashion Show in Pacific Palisades, California.

To the delight of the crowd, including Kardashian West, North walked the runway wearing a Michael Jackson-inspired look consisting of a red jacket with a matching skirt alongside a black zip-up top, white socks and black shoes.

Explaining how her daughter first got involved with the event, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star remarked, “North is completely obsessed with L.O.L. Surprise already, so when we found out there was going to be an L.O.L. Surprise BIGGER Surprise Fashion show, she absolutely had to be involved.”
