Why Kendall Jenner Can't Wait to Walk the Runway Again

Kendall Jenner Teen Prom

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.

She does not look like Khloe! She looks like a cross between Ali MacGraw and Brooke Shields. She is extraordinarily beautiful and seems to be grounded and intelligent, too. While it may not seem fair for one person to have beauty, brains/personality, and money, it seems patently unfair to hate this lovely girl. If she weren’t associated with the Kardashians, this type of negativity probably would not be happening.

Cute girl but PLEASE don’t take fashion advice from your sisters. Tight, too tight and 2 sizes TOO SMALL is not considered good fashion!

IF THE KARDASHIANS ARE SO UNINTERESTING AND HORRIBLE THEN WHY DO YOU PEOPLE BOTHER COMMENTING ON THE STORIES…..OBVIOUSLY THEY’RE INTERESTING ENOUGH FOR YOU TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE ARTICLE AND COMMENT… SIMPLE AS THIS IF YOU DONT LIKE THEM, DONT READ OR WATCH THERE SHOWS DURR….

God I’d die if I was 6’5. I’m 5’11 and it was tough being taller than all your friends and all the boys. My cousin is 6’1 and wears heels so more power to her. Hey people- if you don’t like the Kardashians, at least have enough class not to rag on teenagers!
