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.”

This young lady is stunning and quite poised, especially when you consider her age. She also seems quite sweet and humble, especially when you consider the affluence she’s been surrounded with, her whole life. Plus, she has a very tight, loving family. Maybe there’s a handful of things the parents have allowed that I would disagree with, but we should all be so lucky to have so much love and success in life.

Many of you commenting here need to get over your hate and jealousy — and above all else, put more of your energy into working on your own life.

I actually think all the Kardashian/Jenner girls are beautiful but I don’t find their behavior to be classy or mature. I sometimes think the little Jenner girls are a bit more mature than their older sisters and I think they are handling their fame much better than the older sisters.

not a hater on

I think it’s awesome that shes doing the runway. And I truly hope that she made the decision to do this by herself. It would be a shame if her sisters or mom pressured her into doing this. But she looks stunning, and way more mature than a 16 year old. I think what she’s doing is awesome. She’s gorgeous, nice hair, nice body. I don’t think there’s an age limit on runway modeling. But morally there is an age limit on who you should be criticizing. If you’re older than 18, and you wrote a negative comment. I’m ashamed that a person like you, gets to vote in this country. You should not be bashing someone (especially a 16 year old) on their success. Kindly screw off, thank you.

This family is SO overrated, it’s sickening!

Over it!! on

Those of you bashing this girl are horrible!! She is only 16 yes old, and she looked great modeling.. If I had a family and our lives were a hit on tv I’d keep it going too..and just because they are successful does not mean u should hate them for it.. Get over yourselves!! You are just mad u aren’t as successful as they are!!

first off, she’s not a a kardashian. she’s a jenner, but nonetheless she’s a gorgeous girl. why are ppl so mean? seriously she’s only 15, if you don’t like hearing about her then why read the story?!

I don’t think she’s too young to be doing this. If she wants to be serious about this, she has to start very young (all models started when they were adolescents). I bet she will do great, I mean, look at her body!

So much hate. And why? Do you even know why you hold the opinions you do? Well my opinions come from observation, and my observation is that this young lady is beautiful, driven and doing what she loves to do! Leave her alone people. She’s a teenager living her dream. I wish we were all so lucky! Proud of you Kendall!
