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.”

She looks like every other girl on the street. There is nothing special about her look. Nothing about her screams MODEL.

It’s so nice her family was there. Usually those events appear so cold and clinical.

She’s lovely. It’s wonderful to see a young woman live her dream, whatever it may be.

Rere on

The sad thing is, this girl and her sister,Kendall are not really being hired for their “talents”. They are living in their older sisters’ shadows (Kim esp.) so how can they?
They’ll always get hired just because of the
name Kardashian.

Kelley on

It’s too bad this young woman looks most like her sister, Khloe, the heavyset masculine looking sister. Sorry-but it’s true. Not very attractive or model looking at all-someone pulled some strings.

I think Kylie is attractive and has a nice shape, but nothing about her face is overly striking.
Yes, the reason they have the chance to do most of these things, such as modeling is due to their family connections. Brother Brody Jenner is dating Avril Lavigne, hence the reason Kylie is modeling her Abbey Dawn clothing. Money and name recognition can definitely get your foot in the door much easier, but if you don’t have that, it doesn’t mean that one cannot pursue their dream. :)

Ramona on

Not very pretty, I think she is kind of ordinary and nothing about her is stunning. Besides, shouldn’t Kendall and Kylie be in school.


Really a girl with heavy legs and an OK face is what we call a model these days? I am glad atleast her family was there cheering for her!

ho lover on

She a ho and I love her. I bid on e-bay for her virginity, but I lost out. Mama pimp Jenner got a high bid for this girl’s cherry.

JulieB on

I think it’s nice to see a model who is not stick thin. Most models look emaciated, and this girl looks healthy. So what if she “got in the door” because of who her family is? If she truly isn’t meant to be a model, her career will be short-lived. In the meantime, she will most likely have a blast.
