So Chic! North West Honors Kim and Kanye for Fashion Week

09/25/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

She’s a pint-size protégé!

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian brought along someone special to sit front row at the Balenciaga show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday: 15-month-old daughter North.

But bringing their baby girl along wasn’t exactly the plan.

“She started to cry when we were walking out the door, and we couldn’t leave her,” Kardashian told Yahoo! Style. “So, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. But it was an amazing fashion show for her to be at for her first show!”

The tight-knit trio dressed to impress in matching black ensembles, but coordinating her outfit wasn’t the only way North was paying homage to her parents.

In a move that would make Veronica Mars proud, Kristen Bell has cracked the case of the baby name game.

She and husband Dax Shepard were “completely stumped” about what to call their second child earlier this summer, but the expectant parents have now solved the mystery.

“We had a little bit of a breakthrough. We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt ‘Lincoln’ was so perfect.”

As for when almost 18-month-old daughter Lincoln‘s little brother or sister is due, she says, “Hopefully sometime soon!”

And what does she think of Shepard’s new bell-shaped tattoo on his wedding finger?

“It was surprising. He just came home with a Band-Aid on his finger one day. Those are the kinds of surprises I get at home,” she jokes. “And people wonder why I keep letting him knock me up.”
