They've a hugely triumphant Paris Fashion Week, walking for the likes of Balmain and Dior.

But as the Fall/Winter showcases draw to a close, best pals Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid saved their biggest show to last, leading the models down Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel catwalk, held in the opulent surroundings of the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées on Tuesday.

After swapping hair colours for Balmain, and rocking gothic glam for Dior, Kendall and Gigi's Chanel styling was noticeably more low-key as they strutted down the celeb-lined runway in padded winter coats.

A matching midi-length skirt with a flared hem and thick black opaque tights continued the coordinated look, while heels were ditched in favour of flat suede boots with lace-up detail. 

Kendall and her fellow models were made up with soft pink lips and dashes of blusher in a matching shade, while her long locks were tucked under the hood of her jacket.

Gigi, 20, meanwhile was wrapped up in a padded coat for her saunter down the runway. 

The beige number featured over-sized lined cuffs and scarf detail at the neck, while like Kendall, she was styled with black tights, teamed with slip-on flats to continue the casual vibe.

Gigi's coat featured delicate gold and white floral detailing on the cuffs, while both she and Kendall wowed with unusual eye makeup, dotted on their lids for a veil-like effect.

While Kendall and Gigi were dressed in pale pastels, their fellow models on the Chanel runway were styled in some brighter ensembles.

Ladylike hats and gloves in clashing hues added to the elegant and eclectic vibe, while the splash of colour was offset by a nod to Chanel's origins with black dresses and separates draped in pearls.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star donned fashion's favourite colour for the spectacle, teaming a black trench coat, with a fitted black top and leggings for her daughter's show. She toughened up the look with leather combat boots, while honouring the iconic brand with a fur handbag that was emblazoned with its name in sizeable letters. Draping the bag around her neck, it also looked to double up as a hand cosy, with Kris keeping her mitts toasty by slipping them into either side of the design.

The front row also boasted the likes of Pharrell Williams, Anna Wintour and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Jada was joined by her singer daughter Willow, who was sure to stand out from the crowd in a futuristic ensemble that was rendered in a mesh-effect fabric, while the look was broken up with black panels brandished along the inner leg and across the knees and waist.

The 15-year-old certainly wasn't camera shy as she posed up a storm for the camera both outside of the breathtaking venue, though her playfulness didn't ease up once she took her spot in the front row as she giggled incessantly with her Gotham star mother, who rocked a smart casual look in a white pussybow blouse and ripped boyfriend jeans.

2000 people packed into the Grand Palais for the show, with the runway set up so that everyone had a front row seat, with the models criss-crossing around the venue.  

It's been less than two months since Kendall and Gigi last walked for Chanel, leading the celeb runway back in January as Karl Lagerfeld pulled out all the stops for his haute couture Paris show. 

Kris Jenner meanwhile proved just how strong the family's bond is with Lagerfeld as she spent Friday night gaining exclusive access to a new secret project between him and her model daughter.

The Kardashian matriarch had Instagram in a frenzy as she shared a series of snapshots of the Chanel maverick, branded '#secretproject'.
