It appears that her ban on big sister Kim Kardashian attending her fashion shows has been lifted. Kim, 33, was seen in the front row as her younger sibling, Kendall Jenner, 18, walked the runway at Balmain’s show at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday.
The brunette beauty turned heads as she took to the catwalk in a range of designs, including a barely-there black lattice dress with halter-neck style straps.

Given the style of the dress, Kendall wore a nude-coloured undergarment to protect her modesty.
And while her mother Kris Jenner beamed with pride, Kim – herself dressed in Balmain – appeared to be casting something of a critical eye over her sister as she walked the runway. Kendall recently told The Cut that her famous sibling was regularly invited to the shows but she would always check with her half-sister before making an appearance.
The 5ft 10in beauty explained: ‘She called me before and was like, “Hey I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?” and I was like, “No.”‘

Meanwhile, the model has revealed she must ‘work harder’ if she wants to make it in the fashion world. She said: ‘I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously. ‘People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me.’
After the show, Kendall made a beeline for the L’Avenue restaurant with Kim and Kanye as well as Kris to undoubtedly celebrate her success on the runway. The star kept her hair slicked back in a voluminous ponytail, while covering up her long limbs in a patterned pair of trousers, complete with diamond print.
She teamed her ankle-grazing bottoms with a black sleeveless knit, flat boots and a matching designer handbag, as well as the obligatory dark shades. Kendall – who recently dropped her last name for her professional work – also explained that her reality television roots have made it difficult for her during castings.
She added: ‘People didn’t take me seriously as a model… I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. ‘But it was great when people didn’t recognise me. I was like, “Thank you. Please don’t recognise me.”‘

Kendall’s brother-in-law, rapper Kanye West, was also seen front row at the hot-ticket show.
