The runway-gone-real life besties are at it again!

Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are pretty much running Paris at this point—they kicked off fashion week in a big way at the H&M Studio presentation on March 4, and took to the runways again today in luxe street-chic duds by Balmain.

Not that these two lovely ladies are in competition: Gigi opened up to E! News about her close friendship with Jenner, which developed over the course of many, many backstage moments (the teen supermodels like to "have tea and a little catch up" before hitting the catwalk).

"Kendall and I have a really good friendship in the sense that we have different career paths but we're both kind of on equal points in our careers where we really understand each other," Gigi said.

Meanwhile, another set of models caught our attention on the runway at Balmain, and they're of the Angel variety. (Have we caught your attention yet?)

We spotted no less than seven Victoria's Secret Angels (past and present) serving hair, face and body for Balmain's Olivier Rousteing, including Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss (her departure from the lingerie giant's Angel ranks was revealed in February), Cindy Bruna and Jessica Stam. Supermodel (and consummate Angel) Jourdan Dunn also walked for the fall-winter 2015 showing.

But let's talk about Balmain's star-studded front row, which featured a newly platinum blond Kim Kardashian, Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner and rapper Kanye West. While there were a number of eye-catching looks on the catwalk (and did we mention the lingerie model takeover?), it's fairly obvious that Kim's striking new 'do stole the show.

As for the reason behind the dramatic hair switch-up? An insider told E! News that the color was "apparently just for fun" and that "she wanted a change."

Operation fun, fearless change: Mission accomplished.
