From Calabasas to Paris: Kendall Jenner’s Road to the Runway

Kendall Jenner isn't in Calabasas, California, anymore (at least, not this second).

The 18-year-old reality star/model has been hobnobbing with fashion's elite in Paris, and even walked the runway for Chanel's Fall/Winter Womenswear show at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday.
 
"it's not everyday you get to shop around a Chanel supermarket. OR WALK DOWN THEIR RUNWAY #LivingMyDream," Jenner eagerly captioned the below photo on Instagram.


 
So how did Kendall make it to the big leagues? Lets take a look back at Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé's little sister's runway moments.

Feb. 13, 2014: Jenner made quite an impression when she returned to the runway a year later, wearing a see-through top in Marc Jacobs's show at New York Fashion Week.
 
"I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career," she told Into the Gloss. "The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it — like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!"

Kendall gets serious for Givenchy (Getty Images)


 
March 2, 2014: Kendall's hot streak continued when she strutted her stuff in the Givenchy show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015. Naturally, Kanye West, 36, sat front row to cheer on his soon-to-be sister-in-law. West is best friends with Givenchy Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci, who also has become close with Kim Kardashian. Jenner almost closed the show, but Tisci's favorite Mariacarla Boscono received the coveted slot.
 
Still, Tisci must have been impressed (check out that swag!). The next day, Jenner captioned the below Instagram shot: "thank you @riccardotisci17 !"
