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.”

Oh NO! More Dummies who cannot excise the “LIKE” word from a simple declarative sentence.. Valley girls forever.. God help America and the children-to-be of THESE children.

surprise surprise, like…beauty is like so much more important than like school and stuff??? clearly this girl needs an education, I have never seen the word “like” used so much in just a few short sentences. That’s society nowadays though :/

Showing less is more?? Don’t worry – when Mommy gets a hold of you, you’ll be taking it all off for Playboy, I’m sure…

There is nothing wrong with modeling as a career, however, obtaining a college education, especially with the loads of money her family has, SHOULD be a priority for this young lady, not some kind of afterthought.
