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.”

Are you that jealous that you have to criticize the young girl. It’s not her doings, she just happened to be born in a well to do family. She’s beautiful & very smart. Let her have her thrill & keep your snide remarks to yourself. I agree with another writer … don’t read about them if you don’t like them.

Don’t want to be criticized then GET OUT OF THE PUBLIC !! If not, then get some thick skin lil girl

Pretty girl, but her acne is horrendous. People aren’t hating, they’re just realistic…clearly a case of nepotism. If I was Bruce Jenner’s daughter, I would be out throwing a javelin. He’s the only one in that family that DID anything to be famous.

Kendall looks great and it takes a lot of confidence to get up infront of that crowd. this is a very age appropriate choice for her. If people don’t like the family, they should not take it out on these girls, stop reading about them….no one is forcing you to read the articles, it’s your choice as is choosing to just be mean. There’s just no reason for it.

I actually like her look. She is tall, lanky and has a little bit of athletic figure from her father. She is taller than Khloe, so that’s understandable that they want her to be in modeling. I wish her the best.

Wow, some haters out there! GO KENDALL! I actually enjoy the Kardashians its fun to watch! If you dont like them dont read the articles!! Imagine her reading what your writing about her! Shes still a child and what you haters are writing is uncalled for! I thinks its great that she has the to confidence to get up on a catwalk she will go far! As for those who write hatefull statements you will go as far as your hate allowes you to!

I agree Teresa. I love everything about the Kardashian/Jenner family. They are great. If you don’t like them, you don’t have to read or comment.
