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.”

Kendall looks amazing what a beautiful young girl she is…..

Hi haters! on

My opinion is FINALLY!!! She was soo scared to do the runway and she looks soo great! I love the dress! And it’s normal to have pimples on her face it’s called puberty duhhh! grow up!

everyone entitled to what thier thoughts are about the kardashian/jenner family….everyone love to hate them but hey it was a choice to document their life for the public to see and judge them. We the public only know them through what we see on tv and what it is written in the magazines we don’t know what thier like when the cameras aren’t rollin’. What up, JJ just love your comment, she’s not to young as I recall Kimora(known for her reality tv show, “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane”) was like 13 or 14 when she modeled for Chanel!

I think she’s gorgeous! Definitely the prettiest of all the sisters. Her mom may have helped her get a foot in the door, but if she wasn’t good enough, she wouldn’t have been landing the jobs shes has landed. I’m not a Kardashians fan… but I do like Kourtney and Kendall!

Ramona on

Aren’t runway models supposed to be stunningly interesting looking?

Anita on

Go Kendall Go! You are beautiful!

Tiff on

I think she is very pretty…Hopefully she will have a good career.

honestly to me she looks underfed and scared out of her mind.. and yeah she is only 15.. must be nice to have sisters and a mom who will sell you for a little publicity. maybe if she had to go thru the training and riqourous schedules that other models have to go thru it wouldnt be so annoying.
