CANNES, France (AP) — As France is electrified with buzz of a possible Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wedding in the country this month, the sister of the bride-to-be, TV reality star and aspiring model Kendall Jenner, has taken the other side of the country by storm in Cannes.

The tall, raven-haired 18-year-old wowed crowds in the French Riviera, hitting the red carpet Wednesday for the "Grace of Monaco" premiere in a black-and-white Chanel silk crepe dress from the cruise collection.

If and when her more famous sister weds in Paris, as is rumored, Jenner will conveniently just be able to whizz up the country to attend the festivities.
