Move over Cara, there's a new muse in town.

Just days after leaving her agency and possibly modelling for good, Delevingne's BFF Kendall Jenner (19) has moved in and taken her place at the top.

The reality star who has long fought to be taken seriously in the fashion world since her first foray in front of the camera, closed the Chanel show with creative director Karl Lagerfeld today.

Although she has walked for the French fashion house for the last three seasons and featured in Vogue twice, her closeness with the German designer was more apparent than ever this morning at Paris Couture Week.

Kendall has made a splash on the runways in recent days, walking for Atelier Versace yesterday alongside Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes and is lined up for more shows before wrapping on Friday.

The brunette beauty has previously revealed how difficult it was getting into modelling  because of her famous last name, saying: "You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back.

''It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees, trying my best to break into this business as a teenager.''
