She is still a relative newbie in the industry but Kendall Jenner is taking New York Fashion Week by storm this season. The part-time reality star emerged as the star of the runway while walking for Diane Von Furstenberg on 13 September.

Held at Spring Studios, the 19-year-old led the catwalk showcasing a white and gold embellished playsuit from the fashion designer's latest collection and teamed her look with a flowery headpiece, fringed handbag and bold make-up with hues of blue and green. Joining Jenner on the catwalk were her model friends Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Bella and Gigi Hadid, all of whom she was pictured hanging out with backstage.

Explaining the inspiration for her collection, designer Furstenberg told reporters backstage: "It's a celebration of beauty, of freedom and individuality. My message, as always, is to be the woman you want to be."

It had been a hectic day for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star who had taken part in a photo shoot hours before and was forced to shave her legs in the car en route to the DVF show. The model shared a video on Instagram of her grooming technique with the caption: "So much fashion, not enough week#YouGottaDoWhatYouGottaDo."

Prior to walking for DVF, Jenner made her NYFW debut for the SS16 season in Givenchy's runway show, modelling a series of monochrome designs from the fashion house's upcoming collection. The TV star was supported by her older half-sister Kim Kardashian and brother-in-law Kanye West who attended the show and watched from the front row.

West, 38, is expected to make his own appearance at NYFW with reports claiming the All Day rapper will debut his new collection with Adidas on 16 September. It is believed Jenner is just warming up this season as she is expected to appear at the forthcoming Fashion Weeks in Paris, Milan and London, the latter of which kicks off on 18 September.
