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 Khlo√©, 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.

“Teen fashion queen” according to who? They are shoving the next generation of the Kar-ho-shians down our throats already.
Over 60,000 people signed the petition online and E hasn’t cancelled their show yet, something stinks to high heavens!

your mom is one lucky woman!…if she can not use her older daughters she will exploit her younger daughters… such a wonderful mother!

I don’t know why so many people are hating on a 16 year old. So what if her mom got her in modeling…I wish my parents did that for me. She has such a fresh, beautiful look, I love it!

Really tired of this family, If her family wasn’t famous she would have to work hard as all of the other models and their is much prettier models then her that are not being noticed.

Teen Prom? Is that an internet magazine? It would be more news worthy if she was put on the cover of Vogue. I really don’t believe major magazines are checking for her. Sorry, PEOPLE.

I agree with Sharon, doesn’t seem fair at all. Many girls put themselves through stressful personal lives to get that one runway shot, and all she had to do was be born in the right family. Let’s here it for the filthy rich. We treat celebrities like they are royals and they are just rich people. seriously take away all their money and put them in pony tails and average Walmart clothes, hardly any make up and you have a boring show. They’d have nothing of interest to anyone. People watch them, because a name, people have become drones.

She is a very pretty young lady no doubt but needs to slow down because we are only young once…..
