Long before North and (opens in new tab) Saint West (opens in new tab) arrived and decades before selfies (opens in new tab) or even belfies were a thing (opens in new tab), a young Kim Kardashian West starred in her first of many photo shoots for Barbie Magazine.

"My first debut was in 1988 in Barbie Magazine," Kim revealed on Snapchat on Wednesday night. "Look at what a star reading star maps."

She shared more photos from her modeling debut in her next snap. "Look, I love L.A," Kim said as she showed a photo of young Kimmie visiting the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She's wearing Mickey Mouse ears, just to add to the overall cute factor.

Kim was feeling the nostalgic vibes all night because she also snapped a birthday card she received from Khloé back in their "high school days." Khloé promised to "try to stop" borrowing Kim's clothes, but based on our extensive Kardashian knowledge this likely never happened. It's the thought that counts though, Koko.

Kim's major TBT was only a hint of the internet-breaking photo shoots (opens in new tab) that were to come (opens in new tab). But clearly, Kim was a star from the start.
