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!

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.

Rolyat on

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?

lola on

Family support!! ALWAYS the most important.

aly on

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?

Shay on

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!

Tina on

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!

rachel on

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.

Peachy on

Not attractive at all ……….

sophie on

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.

Kelly Bocast on

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.

spanky on

nasty

Ginger on

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.

mommytoane on

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

Me on

“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.

kurohana on

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.

Nancy on

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?

tress on

Kendall is a girl on fiyah! Watch her work.
