Kim Kardashian's Catwalk Debut

03/24/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

As BFF to Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian is no stranger to the limelight, but until last week, she had never set foot on a runway. Making her debut at long-time friend’s Christian Audigier’s (who also designs Madonna-fave Ed Hardy) show during L.A. Fashion Week, it was hard to believe she wasn’t a seasoned pro. But unlike Paris, the owner of L.A. boutique Dash experienced fashion show jitters, telling PEOPLE, “I’m not a model. I was really nervous. It was nerve-wracking — but I did it!” And luckily she made it through without any spills.

She’s right. She’s not a model. Being in the fashion industry, she’s dosen’t fall into the category of a “runway mode”l and maybe she should have opted to do a shoot instead. But this show wasn’t very high-end so I guess it dosen’t really matter.

i saw the video of her catwalk debut it.. its soo not hot.. (not at all) she is so concious that it showed her lack of confidence. she was near like walking robot. and although Nick cannon was there.He didnt pay her any attention, I mean theres nothin to look forward bout watching her. Nick got a very beautiful gf ms.ebanks that can walk the walk on runway..

kk just stay away from limelights.. just go pursue your business whatever that is.. just not anything like what Paris do. cause seeing you trying so hard.. is not hot!

Who is she? I know she’s Bff with Paris, but other than that…..who is she? I’m not trying to be rude, but really….I have no idea who she is. Just another talent-less socialite I guess.

Do seasoned pro’s have their mouth hanging open like that?

yesterday, i made the comment about you guys saying that kim’s late father, attorney robert kardashian, was sitting in the front row cheering her on – – when in fact you were wrong b/c he has been dead for quite a few years!!!
i see that you went back to retract that, but why didn’t my comment make it in the internet???

My first thought on reading this was exactly the same as R’s – she’s right, she most definitely is not a model. This is completely non-PC, but her thighs are way too big for modeling (she looks kinda like a brute).

She is the daughter of O.J. Simpson’s lawyer (i forgot his name) during his famous murder case.
