Kendall Jenner had an exciting weekend, as Kim Kardashian's half-sister walked the runway for Givenchy's fashion show in Paris. So did Kim's connections help Kendall get the gig?

Instead of joining her fam in L.A. for Oscar festivities, Kendall was in Paris on March 2, where she posted a photo of herself strutting her stuff at the Givenchy show. "Tonight walking #Givenchy @thesocietynyc @elite_paris," Kendall captions the shot.

And Kim was clearly happy for Kendall, even though she couldn't cheer her on in the flesh. "OMG @kendalljenner for Givenchy!!!! #ParisFashionWeek!" Kim captions a photo of Kendall at the show. "Texting her backstage wishing her good luck, anxiously awaiting to watch online, she nailed it!!!!"

Kim also posted a photo of fiance Kanye West watching Kendall from the front row of the show. "Best part was my baby watching & cheering on my baby sister!!!" Kim writes. "So sad I missed it! #Family #Givenchy."

Kim and Kanye are close friends with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, so we're wondering if that had something to do with Kendall getting to walk the runway. Either way, Kendall is clearly a talented model, and we wish her all the best in the field!

Do you think Kim's Givenchy connections helped Kendall?
