Catwalk queens Kendall Jenner and sisters Gigi and Bella led the charge at the Miu Miu autumn/winter 2016 show on Wednesday as they closed Paris Fashion Week in style.

The supermodel trio, who have been the toast of the French capital over the past week as they've appeared at some of the biggest shows, looked as perfect as ever in their designer gear at the last one of the current season.

There was a veritable mix of styles on offer from Miuccia Prada, with Bella looking sensational in all-black while BFFs Kendall and Gigi wore more colourful creations.

Kendall, 20, flaunted her enviable model pins as she strutted her stuff down the runway in the relatively casual garments, which included a thigh-skimming lemon yellow dress layered under a khaki parka jacket.

Adding a touch of girly glamour to the festival-chic ensemble were oversized fluffy fur cuffs, a dainty tan handbag and glittering embellished pointed shoes in a pastel yellow shade.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty - who has walked for Dior, Chanel, Balmain and Elie Saab among others this week - strode with conviction and without even a hint at any feeling of fatigue, despite her recent jam-packed schedule over the past week, which has seen her go from fitting, to show, to party and back again constantly.

Her raven tresses were slicked back into a thoroughly modern, effortless style away from her pretty face. Natural make-up with a bit of contouring completed the runway look.

Following in her wake were Gigi, 20, and Bella, 19, who have both appeared at several shows alongside the reality TV star in recent days: it's also no surprise they, along with many others, were marching for Miu Miu as the show was cast by LOVE editor and uber-stylist Katie Grand.

Gigi was seen showing off a heavily decorated coat - cut to precision with sharp shoulders and a decorated lapel - and she was also able to display her statuesque bare legs and trim waistline thanks to the undone cover-up being pulled together with a chunky belt. 

Underneath the vintage-effect floral coat, which was designed in pastel shades of mustard yellow, pink and orange, her slender frame was covered in a denim mini-dress.

A pair of dainty bow-topped heels tied Gigi's runway outfit together perfectly, and the striking blonde - her hair in the same style as Kendall's - did a fantastic job in showcasing the items.

Bella, meanwhile, was clad in head-to-toe black, looking fierce in a cropped military-style jacket with a ring-style belt nipping her in at the middle to give her definition.

Unlike Kendall and her sister, the brunette model covered her perfect pins in a pair of sheer black stockings, her catwalk costume completed with towering heels and an elegant little hand-held bag.

They weren't the only famous faces to stalk the parade at the Miu Miu show on the closing day of Paris Fashion Week, as the likes of Lara Stone, Irina Shayk Joan Smalls and Sara Sampaio were also out in force.

And there was a surprise appearance from Emily Ratajkowski: while known for being a model and actress, she doesn't tend to walk in high fashion shows. 

The 24-year-old made her debut during Wednesday's show, and she proved her worth as she kept a plain face while exhibiting the strapless black dress with panache. 

Dutch beauty Lara, 32, strutted for Miu Miu in a slightly different item from her model cohorts, covering her slender curves with a ruched lilac dress with a low-plunging neckline, a nod to times gone by with its slight oriental print.

Russian stunner Irina, 30, covered her statuesque figure in an oversized coat that appeared to be constructed from a dark charcoal denim. Like Kendall's attire, it also included ostentatious furry cuffs.

Meanwhile, Gone Girl star Emily, 24, proved her worth as a model as she walked in front of the star-studded spectators in a strapless prom-style dress in black with a funky large ruffled bow falling down the side of her lithe frame.

Also there on the day was Brazilian Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima, who showed off her covetable curves in an off-shoulder black frock with a full skirt, similar to Emily's.

The overall theme of the show seemed to be a combination of pretty muted florals, slim-fitting knits and tweeds and oversized casual coats given a luxurious twist with furry cuffs, glitzy embellishments and ladylike accessories. 

Creative director of the French fashion house Miuccia also used plenty of classic blue denim for a plethora of clothing options, sending her stream of leggy models down the jam-packed catwalk in thigh-skimming dresses with jean jackets.

Chunky furs in a variety of neutral tones were layered over crisp shirts, and military touches were added with boxy breast pockets and badges sewn onto the fabric of coats.

Each and every model had their hair coiffed to exacting precision, their mostly long locks slicked back away from their faces, immaculately made-up in neutral tones so as not to draw attention away from the autumn/winter ready-to-wear designs.

As with most of the biggest designer shows during the four fashion weeks - which take place over a month in London, New York, Milan and Paris - there were plenty of famous faces in attendance to enjoy the sartorial spoils.

Kris Jenner looked as glamorous as ever as she arrived to support her second-youngest daughter Kendall as she completed her week of hard work, the 60-year-old reality TV star wrapped up in a luxe grey and rather large stole.

The beaming 'Momager' teamed the cosy cover-up with slim-fitting black trousers and a floor-length coat and flat boots as she made sure she had her moment to shine in front of photographers.

Also at the show and taking a rare break from modelling herself was Karlie Kloss. The leggy US supermodel looked in fantastic spirits as she posed for snaps en route to the event.

The 23-year-old held on to her sister's arm as they left their hotel, as she showed off her flared jeans, high-neck back top and Adidas trainer combo.

But it was her camel-coloured coat adorned with adorable Pac-Man ghosts that really caught the eye as she made her way to the event across town.

Other famous faces at the show included actress and fashionista Chloe Sevigny, DJ/model Leigh Lezark, French art director and model Julia Restoin Roitfeld, actress and writer Zoe Kazan - who attended with her War and Peace actor beau Paul Dano - rapper ASAP Rocky and actress Julia Garner, among others.
