Kendall Jenner's career as a high-flying catwalk model is going from strength to strength after a handful of stand-out performances over the course of Paris Fashion Week's latest run.

And the 20-year-old continued to reign supreme as the season's catwalk queen as she put on another show-stopping display at the unveiling of Elie Saab's latest collection on Saturday.

Kendall was a vision of high-fashion beauty as she transformed into a punky gothic goddess in two strikingly different, but equally stunning, creations which no doubt left her proud mother Kris - who watched from the front row - in awe.

The second youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan ruled the roost as she was the only 'celebrity' model cast by the Lebanese designer who specialises in elegant evening wear.

The first look saw Kendall sashay down the blue-tinted runway in a black semi-sheer gown which was bandeau in style, nipped at the waist with a silver buckle belt and trailing in length.

The gorgeous centre-piece was rendered in delicate sheer with intricately-designed leather overlay providing a punk edge to the would-be feminine frock.

Kendall was bang-on trend thanks to a skinny leather scarf which was tied around her once while the length hung down to below her knees.

Kendall's colourful number was toughened up with a fringed-sleeve leather jacket while a studded choker and fierce lace-up boots ensured she looked every inch the high-end punk princess.

Meanwhile, her make-up was in fitting with the girly-gothic theme and she sported heavy smokey eyes while a pale pink hue plumped her pout.

Her glossy brunette tresses were mostly straight but flicked out at the ends to further frame her face.

While there was no denying Kendall stole the show, her 60-year-old mother Kris gave her a good run for her money as she arrived in a plunging black jumpsuit which afforded her the attention of show-goers.
