Another Day, Another Jenner: Kendall Hits the Catwalk for Sherri Hill

Kendall Jenner Sherri Hill Show

First Kylie, now Kendall: the elder Jenner sister made her runway debut at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, just two days after little sis Kylie took to the catwalk for Avril Lavigne‘s Abbey Dawn show.

Kendall strutted her stuff at Trump Tower for Sherri Hill, a dress designer she’s modeled for in the past. “It felt amazing. I’m definitely going to be doing it again,” she told PEOPLE after the show.

Though she received a lot of praise, Jenner admitted, “I was really nervous and worried about falling.” But the loud applause from the front row courtesy of her big sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, made her feel “great.” Afterward, a proud Kim spilled her reaction, Tweeting, “Wow my little sis @kendalljenner faced her fears & killed it tonight on the runway!!!”

While Kendall admitted she “loved” hearing her sisters’ screams — “it made me feel better when I was walking,” she shared — she also tried to keep her focus. “I kind of tune out the people because I don’t like crowds that much,” she said.

She must’ve done a good job: Hill’s team seemed quite pleased with Kendall’s work. “She’s a fashion designer’s dream,” Hill told PEOPLE backstage after the show. “Almost everything works for her.” Stylist Alisha Crutchfield added, “She gave us both edge and sophistication.”

So how does the budding beauty juggle everything? “All I can say is that I’m kind of used to it. I’ve been doing this since I was nine years old,” she said.

And it pays to have accomplished relatives, who are never short on advice.

“[My sisters] see me and Kylie on the Internet and they are like, ‘don’t listen to what the haters have to say,”‘ she shared. “Just to be confident in yourself.”

Yet again another article about how oh-so-fabulous the Kardashians are.

When are the Kardashians ever going to be over??? like the rest of all the reality show’s.
wish they would disappear.

Spanish Fly on

here we go….. Jr. Sl** in training. Enough!! and she is not a Kardashian. He is a Jenner. NOT model material either. Clear up that skin first! but mom will pimp her out so better make photoshop your BFF

Afton Awesome on

Why on Earth do you need to be so mean? She’s sixteen years old for goodness sakes. And call me crazy but I think that maybe the designer knows a little more about who is model material.

JJ on

Aren’t they a little young to be waling a catwalk?

get over yourself on

Just because she is a model, does not mean she is a s**t. She is most definitely a model, and a very pretty 15 year old girl! And she does not have an acne problem either. If you hate this family so much – stop reading about them. There are plenty of other stories to read. Stop hating on KIDS, it is pathetic. The fact that she has family support is a good thing. Whether you like the family or not. You go Kendall Jenner (not kardashian)!

Liah on

Well ,I think she looks very good and she has model size and if she continue with this career she can do better and better ….because we know that she is very younger but she has talent =) (Please stop be haters when a person has succeful)=)

jassy on

Ha so tired of hearing about the kardashians and jenners there show is fake and everythign about them.

Britt on

She’s the prettiest of the Kardashian’s but doesn’t have Khloe’s sharp wit or Kourtney’s business savvy. She’s got Kim beat in all categories.

jessica on

wow, lets be mean to kids.

people were “outraged” by the Tyler Clementi and Phoebe Prince stories, but those same people are on here calling a 15 year old girl a S**t.
