Kendall Jenner was noticeably absent from brother-in-law Kanye West's birthday bash on Monday. Sister Kim Kardashian rented out the Staples Center for the extravaganza, but Kendall Jenner was still a no-show.

The 19-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and fashion model had far better things to do than party with Kanye West. She was furthering her career by strutting her stuff--as well as some haute couture--on a runway in Turkey at the Dosso Dossi fashion show.

Kendall Jenner certainly turned heads as she modeled five different looks.

She wore white shorts with a matching jacket, with nothing underneath but a black bandeau.

She also wore an oversized pink coat with shredded sleeves. Another of Kendall's ensembles included a gorgeous gown with a high-low hem.

Kendall Jenner never stumbled once in her Christian Louboutin extra-high platform heels.

Most considered Kendall Jenner to be the 'ringleader' for the entire Dosso Dossi show. In past years, models including Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, and Lindsay Ellingson have walked the famous runway in Antalya, Turkey, but this year Kendall Jenner was the celebrated guest.

Always humble about her work as a model, Kendall shared a few words with the media.

"I was very excited to come here,” she said. “I’ve had friends come here before and they told me how beautiful it is.”

Kendall Jenner's modeling career has exploded. While many dissed the daughter of Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner for using her reality show notoriety to gain access into the modeling world, she certainly has proven she has a rare talent for walking the runway and posing for fashion shoots.

Does Kendall Jenner have supermodel status in her future?
