Her sisters might be the queens of reality TV, but Kendall Jenner is looking to carve her own path in life — through modeling.

“I’m not really thinking about college right now,” Jenner, 16, told PEOPLE Monday while trying on dresses at Rent the Runway‘s Pop-up Shop at West Hollywood’s Andaz Hotel. “If my career, like, blows up and gets really big, [modeling] is what I would do.”

Though we’ve seen Kim Kardashian‘s younger sis struggle with her nerves while walking the runway on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner says those initial jitters are all in the past.

“I want to [walk the runway] again and again,” she said. “It was so much fun, like the adrenaline and everything was really fun.”

The budding fashionista, who calls her own style “edgy [and] girly, but colorful,” shared some of her own style tips and influences.

“I like to add color… and I think that heels make the outfit look 10 times better,” said Jenner, who often “raids” sister Kourtney‘s closet. “I love Hervé Léger dresses just because I love bandage dresses … [and] I love jumpers.”

As for showing skin both on and off the runway, the teen believes less is more.

“I think if you look cute but like, classy, even though you are showing skin, I think that’s fine,” she said. “I wouldn’t like, go crazy. I am not that kind of a person.”

So unfair. Kendall should try to fit in college. Here are millions of kids including myself, working our ASSES off to snatch a even just a couple grand in scholarships and grants. If only my parents had that kind of money…
