It's hard to believe just a month ago we only knew Kendall Jenner as Kim Kardashian's younger sister. Fast-forward four weeks and the 18-year-old's become one of the most hyped up-and-coming models to walk at fashion weeks across the world.

She walked for Marc Jacobs in New York, Giles in London and Givenchy and Chanel in Paris. She squeezed in next to Anna Wintour on the front row at Topshop Unique and hung out with champion Katie Grand at the LOVE Magazine party.

Here's how she dominated fashion month.

1. W Shoot

The first taste we got of the Kendall takeover was this sultry shoot for W magazine back in February. Part of a series bedroom shots of stars it showed the model in-between-the-sheets sporting a leather jacket panda-eye mascara and not much else.

2. Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2014

It all kicked off on Twitter when Kendall made her New York Fashion Week debut on February 14. With bleached brows and a graphic bob she looked super high-fashion - a world away from her super glamorous image. Kendall also flashed her chest in a totally sheer mesh top that left haters hating and her sister's tweeting their support.

'We were jumping around and were so excited because it's one of my biggest dreams to be able to walk for shows like that,' Kendall told Grazia. 'So it was an awesome day.'

3. Vogue US Insta-shoot

A day after Kendall's first taste of the high-fashion limelight and her fate as this season's model-to-watch is sealed. She appears in an unannounced shoot for Vogue US sporting a series of Autumn Winter 2014 looks from New York Fashion Week. Styled to look like selfies, the shoot appeared on the magazine's Instagram account.

4. FROWing at Topshop

A few days later, Kendall jets over to the UK to make her first appearance at London Fashion Week. This time it's not on the runway, it's on the FROW at Topshop Unique. The model didn't just get any old seat, she took a pew next to Anna Wintour.

'She's amazing,' Kendall told Grazia. 'Our flights both got diverted to Newcastle so we talked about that.'

5. Giles Autumn Winter 2014

On February 17, Kendall walked for Giles at London Fashion Week alongside Cara Delevingne. On the catwalk she wore blue eyeshadow and her hair slicked across her face in an effortless side-swept 'do. She sported a monochrome assymetric shift for the occasion.

She caught up with Grazia behind the scenes, chatting about how London's different to New York while getting beautified ready for the runway.

'Well, for a start, you drive on a different side of the road!' she said. 'But there are actually a lot of similarities. I was driving around today and saw a lot of apartment complexes which reminded me of New York. I love it here, it's awesome.'

6. The LOVE Magazine party

Kendall caught up with Grazia again at the LOVE Magazine party - one of the biggest after hours events at London Fashion Week - while she was hanging out with stylist and career champion Katie Grand (who got her a spot in the Giles show). 

'She's been a great person to be around and I really appreciate her supporting me,' Kendall told Grazia.

7. Givenchy Autumn Winter 2014

On March 2 Kendall hit up the Givenchy show in Paris, walking the catwalk alongside Saskia de Brauw and Joan Smalls. She sported bleached eyebrows again as she modelled a floorlength gown with a reptile-print bodice. Although her sister's weren't there to watch, Kanye West sat on the front row to support her.

Rather than relax after the show was over, Kendall hung out with fellow model Joan Smalls. They took fun selfies together backstage at the venue. 'backstage #Givenchy @joansmalls,' posted Kendall.

Lucky Kendall also got sent home from the show with Givenchy goodies. 'Thank you @riccardotisci17,' she posted on Instagram alongside an emoticon blowing a kiss and a picture of herself looking through two shopping bags of treats.

8. Chanel Autumn Winter 2014

In her final huge Fashion Month moment Kendall hit the catwalk at one of the biggest shows of every season today (March 4) - Chanel's Paris Fashion Week presentation. Donning a cocoon coat with a high-ponytail, she KILLED it as she flaunted the collection in Karl's supermarket.
