Kendall Jenner on Walking Her 1st Fashion Show: 'I Wanted the Attention to Be on Me'

Kendall Jenner on Walking Her 1st Fashion Show: 'I Wanted the Attention to Be on Me'

Kendall Jenner gets her stunning close up on Allure magazine’s March 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 19-year-old model had to share with the mag:

On growing up: “I had just started ninth grade when I got my acne. And I had braces. I wouldn’t look people in the eye. It was not a good time for me—it just killed my self-esteem. I thought when I didn’t look at someone, they couldn’t see my face.”

On being herself: “I still have a hard time looking at someone when I’m talking to them, and I get nervous. When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out. It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself.”

On having no tattoos: “I have a really weird thing about ‘forever.’ And my sister Kim always said, ‘Don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.’”

On walking in her first fashion show: “I didn’t need it to be a family affair. As selfish as this sounds, I wanted the attention to be on me for five seconds rather than my family. If they were sitting front row, it would have been all about, ‘Oh, Kim goes to Kendall’s first fashion show!’ I love Kim, but for a minute I wanted it to be like, ‘OK, this is [Kendall's] thing—she’s taking it seriously.’”

    She and Kourtney are the only ones that I get a sense that, if they weren’t in this family, they really wouldn’t choose to be. Kourtney seems really about her kids and Kendall actually seems more serious, reserved and not eager to be in the spotlight apart from modeling.

    She’s average. Certainly not stunning.

    They’ve finally found an angle from which she looks maybe 50% like a serious model. What the heck is she doing on runways?
