The model was virtually unrecognisable on the catwalk during the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week.

Wearing a razor sharp short wig with a fringe and embracing a paler colour, Kendall blended in perfectly with the seasoned runway models in one of the most anticipated collections of fashion week.

Big sister Khloe tweeted her pride at seeing her sister on the runway, saying: "My baby sister killed it today walking in the Marc Jacobs fashion show!!! Kenny you are so dope to me!!! Congrats my baby!!! ... She's too dope for you 2 understand! Yall would trade places with her in a second! The hate is real! Lol bye haters!"

While Jenner has been modelling since she was 15 years old, she told Into The Gloss of her excitement at being chosen by Marc Jacobs before the show.

"I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career," she told the publication. "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!

"I’m a little nervous for the show, but I’m really excited. It’s my first runway show, so I’ve been practicing. I feel like everybody has their own individual walk, and that’s what makes someone so special. Maybe I’ll run down the runway! [Laughs]"
