When Kylie Jenner sashayed down the runway at Monday night’s STYLE360 Abbey Dawn fashion show, more than a few familiar faces dotted the front row: show spectators included sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, brother Brody Jenner and bro-in-law Kris Humphries.

The perfect synergy of talent and good looks (Abbey Dawn is designed by Brody’s flame Avril Lavigne, after all) resulted in what Kylie dubbed “a family affair.”

“I loved having my family there,” Kylie gushed to PEOPLE after the show. “They made me so much more comfortable!” Aside from taking candids and offering up a congratulatory bouquet, family members also took to the Internet to express their admiration. “She was so fab,” big sis Kim Tweeted, with Brody sweetly concurring: “She looked beautiful and was such a natural. Proud to be her brother.”

Fully embracing the Abbey Dawn aesthetic, which includes slogan tees, studded accessories and party frocks, the 14-year-old even confessed to stealing one element straight off the runway. “I’m obsessed with it,” she told PEOPLE of her newly dip-dyed strands. “I did “Rihanna red” over Spring Break, but I was just like, ‘This isn’t me!'”

But does the novice model she have a future in the industry? “She did a really good job,” Lavigne admiringly told PEOPLE after the show. “I love her edge.”

Are you guys crazy? Why are you being so hurtful to her? “Heavy set legs”? Really? She is gorgeous, tall, skinny, and a sweet girl. Get over yourselves and get a clue. I doubt the people who are saying this could even fit their calf into her pants. She is tiny and a great model. Be nice.

It was really fun and I had a great time, my family was there for support and I love them for that. I may not be the Prettiest but I love being in my skin and wouldn’t want to be anyone else, it sad that you guys either give negativity or back handed compliments, but thats a part of life, I expected it.
