When you saw Kim Kardashian in that plunging red ballgown at an Oscars party Sunday night, was your first thought also “Wait a minute, does Kanye know about this? After all he’s largely thought to be the maestro behind her recent all-neutral wardrobe.

As it turns out, he might have missed her major red moment, because he was busy playing style Svengali to another child of Kris Jenner’s: Kendall Jenner, 18, who made her Paris Fashion Week debut on the Givenchy runway Sunday, while West looked on from the front row.

West is a longtime pal of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who has befriended Kardashian over the years (custom making her this and this, and recently calling her “the Marilyn Monroe of our age”).

Now it appears Tisci is helping further the fashion career of Kim’s little sis. Jenner made her high-fashion modeling debut in a completely sheer shirt for Marc Jacobs, then hit the Giles runway in London. Now she’s strutting the catwalk for one of the hautest couture houses in Paris (though oddly once again, sans eyebrows) under West’s watchful eye.

We think Jenner actually has a very promising fashion career ahead of her, though we must say we’re curious why West was her designated cheering section instead of her sisters. But Kim posted the below picture to show she was rooting for her from miles away.

What do you think of the West/Jenner fashion connection? Think this means a Givenchy wedding dress is in the works for Kardashian? Tell us below!

Best part was my baby watching & cheering on my baby sister!!! So sad I missed it! #Family #Givenchy

Not attractive at all ……….

like most of you, i am extremely tired of hearing about the kardashians. but, as someone who has worked in the modeling/fashion industry for years, i can say kendall absolutely has what it takes to be a model and could be even if she wasn’t related to her crazy in-our-face family. so, hate away (and i’m right there with you), but on this one, let’s give the kid a break…they have one person in the family that is ACTUALLY beautiful naturally and has what it takes to be a model.

Isn’t it amazing what they call fashion? I guess it really looks attractive to seem like you’re on heroin and your clothes look like they went through a blender. To each his own.

I think Kendall is a beautiful young lady, trying to do her own thing. I personally don’t care for the clothes she is modeling, but to each his own. And why do they cover her eyebrows? It makes her look mad. The last two things I’ve seen her in that’s been done to them.

I wouldn’t be shocked if Kayne decided to move on. Does Kendall have no eyebrows? Looks that way in the pic

“the Marilyn Monroe of our age” LOL! NO! Just no. Miss. Monroe was a beautiful WOMAN. She’s an average teenager.
They serve absolutely no purpose in life but to make the world a trashier place. I wish they would all go somewhere far away like a deserted island in the middle of nowhere.

Good for her she had a dream and now she is living it, i hope she becomes a successful model. I think it’s great that Kanye is supportive of Kim’s sisters.
The reason models don’t smile is because they are there to show the clothing not themselves, smiling would be a distraction from the clothing. Unless the clothing designer wanted them to smile than they would.

I thought she was model material but the more I see her model, the more I don’t think so. Next!

Amanda on

I don’t understand fashion. How does that look good?
