We all know that Kim Kardashian grovels for Anna Wintour's approval (as does most of the fashion world), but this is taking it to a new level.

E! News reports that Wintour told a very pregnant Kardashian that she particularly liked the name North West at the Met Costume Institute Gala last month.

"That's not why they named her North, but it's nice to have Anna's blessing," their source says.

Then again, we also assume Wintour approved that floral gloved number Kardashian wore to the Met Gala, since she and Kanye West dined at Wintour's home the night before. Kardashian was then noticeably cropped out of a Vogue best dressed slideshow and was widely criticized for the look.

Is Wintour using her influence to play one joke after another on the reality star? We don't think she would go this far. But who knows? Maybe she's sitting at her desk, laughing at the endless North West jokes on Twitter right now, just like the rest of us.
