Kim Kardashian teaches Salma Hayek how to take an expert selfie in the front row of the Balenciaga Paris Fashion Week show

Kim Kardashian seized the opportunity to pass on a bit of influencer wisdom while hobnobbing with the stars at Paris Fashion Week.

During the Balenciaga runway show, she found herself seated next to bombshell movie star Salma Hayek.

During a bit of downtime before the models hit the catwalk, Kim, 43, found herself teaching Salma, 57, how to take an expert selfie.

A grateful Salma posted about the moment on Instagram, including some footage of Kim showing her how to snap a picture of them both.

Salma also included a snapshot of the final product, proving that Kim's skills had failed to rub off – in Salma's selfie much of her own face was out of frame.

'Let’s face it, I’m no good at selfies. It’s best to let the queen, @kimkardashian, handle that,' the From Dusk TIll Dawn actress wrote in the caption.

She continued in the same self-deprecating vein: 'But my video footage is not too bad especially when I’m chewing gum.'

Salma is married to French tycoon François-Henri Pinault, the longtime chairman and CEO of Balenciaga's parent company, the Kering Group.

Kim, meanwhile, has also enjoyed a long association with the fashion house, frequently modeling its designs before becoming a brand ambassador this January.

Both Kim and Salma were heaped with opprobrium last summer when Balenciaga was slammed for an ad campaign involving children.

Some pictures showed children holding teddy-bear-shaped purses that were dressed in what appeared to be bondage gear.

One of the snaps was of a bag on a desk strewn with papers – one of which was a United States Supreme Court ruling involving child pornography.

A particularly controversial photo showed a child lying down on a couch next to a coffee table with empty wineglasses and Stella Artois chalices.

Although Kim was not part of the campaign, her past association with the brand made her a lightning rod for the mounting backlash.

Under gathering pressure, she issued a statement denouncing the campaign, saying she was 'disgusted' and 'outraged' by the pictures.

'I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with – & the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children.'

Salma on the other hand kept silent, which made her a target of blowback given her husband's position at the top of Balenciaga's parent company.
