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

I think it is so tacky how people post pics of gifts they bought for themselves or received. One here and there is fine but when you do it constantly you’re showing off.

She’s a model? With that monster mash face?

Lu on

My first thought on seeing Kim’s dress was that she, once again, needed to put her breasts away.

Pat on

Is he moving on to Kendall now?

Family support!! ALWAYS the most important.

So, so very sad. It is too bad she is not going to college and pursuing her studies over the next 5 years. Without this type of foundation, hanging on to the most shallow of people, she has an uphill battle in her life. No wonder Bruce got out when he could. What is People cheering about with a barely 18 year old strutting on a runway far away from home?

So, Kanye attends a fashion show she’s in and now he’s her style svengali? You guys will find a way to a negative spin on anything Kardashian. Can’t stand them but write about them daily. Lol!

There’s that face again. Only face she can do. It’s just her face not smiling. That’s modeling? Ohhhkaaay!

Mr G. on

She may be a model by your standards but certainly not mine. On a scale from 1-10 she’s a 6 at best and that’s being generous. As for Kanye? He is too fashion what Kris Jenner is to morals and integrity. They have NONE!

Kendall is very pretty, and most definitely the prettiest of the 5 sisters, but I see her modeling career being nothing more than average. I just don’t think she has what it takes to be a super Supermodel, which I’m sure is what she and Kris want.
