Another Day, Another Jenner: Kendall Hits the Catwalk for Sherri Hill

Kendall Jenner Sherri Hill Show
INF

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.”

Yet again another article about how oh-so-fabulous the Kardashians are.

Emma on

When are the Kardashians ever going to be over??? like the rest of all the reality show’s.
wish they would disappear.

Spanish Fly on

here we go….. Jr. Sl** in training. Enough!! and she is not a Kardashian. He is a Jenner. NOT model material either. Clear up that skin first! but mom will pimp her out so better make photoshop your BFF

Afton Awesome on

Why on Earth do you need to be so mean? She’s sixteen years old for goodness sakes. And call me crazy but I think that maybe the designer knows a little more about who is model material.

JJ on

Aren’t they a little young to be waling a catwalk?

get over yourself on

Just because she is a model, does not mean she is a s**t. She is most definitely a model, and a very pretty 15 year old girl! And she does not have an acne problem either. If you hate this family so much – stop reading about them. There are plenty of other stories to read. Stop hating on KIDS, it is pathetic. The fact that she has family support is a good thing. Whether you like the family or not. You go Kendall Jenner (not kardashian)!

Liah on

Well ,I think she looks very good and she has model size and if she continue with this career she can do better and better ….because we know that she is very younger but she has talent =) (Please stop be haters when a person has succeful)=)

jassy on

Ha so tired of hearing about the kardashians and jenners there show is fake and everythign about them.

Britt on

She’s the prettiest of the Kardashian’s but doesn’t have Khloe’s sharp wit or Kourtney’s business savvy. She’s got Kim beat in all categories.

jessica on

wow, lets be mean to kids.

people were “outraged” by the Tyler Clementi and Phoebe Prince stories, but those same people are on here calling a 15 year old girl a S**t.

alyssa on

dont be such a hater

christyklein on

She looks awkward.

arelia on

Kendall looks amazing what a beautiful young girl she is…..

Hi haters! on

My opinion is FINALLY!!! She was soo scared to do the runway and she looks soo great! I love the dress! And it’s normal to have pimples on her face it’s called puberty duhhh! grow up!

S on

everyone entitled to what thier thoughts are about the kardashian/jenner family….everyone love to hate them but hey it was a choice to document their life for the public to see and judge them. We the public only know them through what we see on tv and what it is written in the magazines we don’t know what thier like when the cameras aren’t rollin’. What up, JJ just love your comment, she’s not to young as I recall Kimora(known for her reality tv show, “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane”) was like 13 or 14 when she modeled for Chanel!

Lala on

I think she’s gorgeous! Definitely the prettiest of all the sisters. Her mom may have helped her get a foot in the door, but if she wasn’t good enough, she wouldn’t have been landing the jobs shes has landed. I’m not a Kardashians fan… but I do like Kourtney and Kendall!

Ramona on

Aren’t runway models supposed to be stunningly interesting looking?

Anita on

Go Kendall Go! You are beautiful!

Tiff on

I think she is very pretty…Hopefully she will have a good career.

tonya on

honestly to me she looks underfed and scared out of her mind.. and yeah she is only 15.. must be nice to have sisters and a mom who will sell you for a little publicity. maybe if she had to go thru the training and riqourous schedules that other models have to go thru it wouldnt be so annoying.

amy on

she’s really pretty, young and shy. still innocent too. i think she’ll do really well in modeling if she chooses to continue. i like the kardashian’s!

Christine on

STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!<3

Teresa on

Are you that jealous that you have to criticize the young girl. It’s not her doings, she just happened to be born in a well to do family. She’s beautiful & very smart. Let her have her thrill & keep your snide remarks to yourself. I agree with another writer … don’t read about them if you don’t like them.

Spanish Fly on

Don’t want to be criticized then GET OUT OF THE PUBLIC !! If not, then get some thick skin lil girl

didfid on

Pretty girl, but her acne is horrendous. People aren’t hating, they’re just realistic…clearly a case of nepotism. If I was Bruce Jenner’s daughter, I would be out throwing a javelin. He’s the only one in that family that DID anything to be famous.

OhThatGirl on

Kendall looks great and it takes a lot of confidence to get up infront of that crowd. this is a very age appropriate choice for her. If people don’t like the family, they should not take it out on these girls, stop reading about them….no one is forcing you to read the articles, it’s your choice as is choosing to just be mean. There’s just no reason for it.

guest11 on

I actually like her look. She is tall, lanky and has a little bit of athletic figure from her father. She is taller than Khloe, so that’s understandable that they want her to be in modeling. I wish her the best.

Wow on

Wow, some haters out there! GO KENDALL! I actually enjoy the Kardashians its fun to watch! If you dont like them dont read the articles!! Imagine her reading what your writing about her! Shes still a child and what you haters are writing is uncalled for! I thinks its great that she has the to confidence to get up on a catwalk she will go far! As for those who write hatefull statements you will go as far as your hate allowes you to!

b more on

She’s cute.

Jill on

I agree Teresa. I love everything about the Kardashian/Jenner family. They are great. If you don’t like them, you don’t have to read or comment.

cb on

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.

MJ on

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.

NM on

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!!

amy on

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?!

schwarzer90 on

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!

I like people who gets jobs THAT THEY ACTUALLY DESERVE, have worked for and actually have the talent for. Not people with no class just born into a scanky, over publicized family!. Seriously, Hollywood needs to get back to the glam class.
