Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are ‘So Normal

September 9, 2013

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are like any other couple, says the former editor of French Vogue.

“They are so normal,” Carine Roitfeld told PEOPLE at the N.Y.C. premiere of the new documentary film, Mademoiselle C, on Friday. “They are lovely together.”

The film is about how Roitfeld started the edgy new CR Fashion Book after her 10-year run at French Vogue.

Kardashian, who sports a gold grill on the cover of the latest issue of Roitfeld’s magazine, was expected to make her first official post-baby appearance at the premiere and the afterparty at The Four Seasons Restaurant, but ended up canceling.

West, 36, did make it to the Absolute Elyx-sponsored fête – albeit quite late. (The new parents haven’t seen each other since they released a photo of their now 3-month-old daughter, North, in late August, a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE.)

“He came because Carine is a good friend of his,” says a source close to the singer, who appears briefly in the film.

Roitfeld revealed that she met Kardashian, 32, through West “because he is so into fashion, of course.” “We decided we would do a story about her. Immediately she said, ‘Yes.’ ”

Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld shot Kardashian’s provocative high-fashion spread when she was eight months pregnant with her baby girl.

But the mom-to-be was no diva during the shoot. “She was one of the easiest models I have ever worked with,” Roitfeld tells PEOPLE. “She’s not a model, but she was pregnant, you know, and I love pregnant women. Honestly, she was very, very nice. She made no demands at all.”

While Roitfeld has spent time with Kardashian and West, she has yet to meet their new arrival, who was born in June. But she has seen pictures of her. “She is beautiful!”
