Kendall Jenner was basking in the spotlight this week, after walking in the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, but all that changed when older sister, Kim Kardashian, showed up and took all the attention away.
18-year-old Jenner was in Paris working as a model for the Chanel show. This was Jenner’s first time walking a Chanel Haute Couture show, and it was a really big deal. Jenner owned the runway, clothed in black feathers, a tartan maxi dress, and her hair arranged in a mohawk. The dress was gorgeous. It was jeweled, off the shoulder, and had sleeves made of feathers.
Kendall Jenner was happily stealing the spotlight from other seasoned models, and solidifying her role as the new “it-girl,” that is until Kim Kardashian blew into town for only 24 hours. Kardashian came from New Jersey, where she was filming with Khloe and Kourtney for their reality show, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons. However, Kardashian took 24 hours out of her schedule to fly into Paris to attend the Valentino fall-winter event and support her younger sister.
The newly married mom looked gorgeous in a sky blue silk dress, with a plunging neckline. The reality star walked into the show arm-in-arm with designer Valentino Garavani, and sat in the first row right next to him. Apparently, the pair has been friends since Kanye West introduced them. The designer even hosted Kardashian and West’s pre-wedding brunch at his Parisian estate. Kardashian also wore Valentino the night West proposed.
Kardashian and her blue dress not only took attention way from her younger sister’s modeling achievements, but also other well-known names that attended the Valentino show. Also in the audience were Emma Watson, Greece’s Princess Marie-Chantal, Princess Maria-Olympia, Olivia Palermo and her new husband, Johannes Huebl.
Kardashian also attended the Vogue Foundation Gala at the Palais Galliera to support her little sister, and also Balmain’s designer and friend, Oliver Rousteing. Jenner was working as a “Balmain’s Army” model, after walking in the Chanel show. Kardashian and Jenner posed for a picture with other models in the show, which Kardashian posted on her Instagram account. The reality star commented that she felt short next to all the tall, leggy models.
Kim Kardashian also spoke to the press about how happy she is with her life. The reality star said she feels very calm since her wedding to West. Kardashian says she loves her baby and her husband, and she now laughs more than ever. The reporter described Kardashian as “radiant” at the show, and the reality star agreed, saying being “calm on the inside can make you glow on the outside.”
Kendall Jenner is probably used to Kim Kardashian stealing the spotlight whenever she shows up, which was especially apparent this time in Paris. Jenner was also photographed much more when she was out and about with her older sister. Kardashian and Jenner visited Balmain boutique and Valentino when they weren’t at a fashion show.
