Why Kendall Jenner Can't Wait to Walk the Runway Again

Kendall Jenner Teen Prom

Kendall Jenner is going to prom! The up-and-coming model graces the pages of TeenPROM‘s 2012 issue, dishing on everything from her once-introverted ways (“I used to be really shy around the cameras,” she admits) to her beauty secrets (at 16, she’s already wearing eye cream nightly, thanks to advice from her sisters).

But what the reality star really loves to talk about is fashion. Mentioning that she draws style inspiration from sibs Kourtney, Kim and Khloé, Jenner admits she used to dislike high heels. “I was so tall, and would tower over everybody, but now I actually love them,” she shares. “Height doesn’t really matter to me anymore. I feel wearing heels makes everything look better.”

Reflecting on outfits past — “Kyile and I used to wear the craziest stuff on our show when we were younger,” she confesses — the teen fashion queen doesn’t seem to have a favorite designer or style of dress. “Honestly, I wear whatever stands out to me,” she says, adding, “I love color. [It] stands out a lot more.” (She also loves jewelry; WWD reported Tuesday that Jenner and sis Kylie will launch their own line of gems in 2012.)

Since making her runway debut at a Sherri Hill fashion show in New York this September, Jenner is feeling more confident about her modeling skills, too. But it wasn’t always that way.

“I was really, really nervous and scared,” she recalls of show day. “I was like, ‘What if my walk isn’t right?'” But after a pep talk from her supportive sisters, she felt at ease. “When the lights are up, you can’t really see the audience, which made it a little better,” she explains. “I had a lot of fun. I want to do it again.” For more with Jenner, and to see her in the latest Terani Couture prom dresses, visit teenmag.com/prom and pick up TeenPROM, on newsstands Dec. 27.

I am so tired of celebrities complaining about being “so tall”. Her and Taylor Swift both think being 5’10” is news worthy. I’m 6’5″, so try again.

Another empty headed kardashian!

Monie on

Andrea, are you really 6’5? How cool is that?!! I’ve always wanted to be taller… I’m 5’4. :-(

Sharon on

She is a beautiful girl, but there are so many girls out there that work hard to get into modeling and acting etc. and don’t make it. But, because Kendall has a famous family she does not have to work at all to get noticed, it does not seem fair.
