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 looks so pretty. Looks are everything, but it is nice to see her happy doing what she loves, at so young an age. People need to be kinder in life. No need for name calling of this young lady. there seems to be a lot of love in this blended family.

Why is this a story, surely she should concentrate on getting an education not about how to pimp clothes, like the rest of the dumb ass family
