The reality star model got glam on the current issue, where she spills on her style, the Kardashian fame and working through her fears.

Kendall Jenner seems to be everywhere these days — and she looks like such a fresh-faced teen on the cover of TeenPROM in Terani Couture. Aside from showing off a slew of formal looks, she opens up about her individual style. “My three older sisters [Kourtney, Kim and Khloé] inspire me the most,” she said “I pull [my style] from each of them.”

While the 16-year-old is definitely soaking up the spotlight, she wasn’t always so comfortable with the reality fame. “I used to be really shy around the cameras when we started filming,” she said. “But I think Kylie (her younger sister) and I are both used to it now. It’s normal for us.”

Kendall may look like a natural in front of the camera, but in reality the first time she made her runway debut she was so nervous! “I was like, ‘What if my walk isn’t right?’ [My sisters] told me, ‘You’ll be fine, you’ll do great,’ and that made me feel so much better. They said, ‘Be you, have fun with it, be confident.’ Once I got out there, I felt more comfortable. When the lights are up, you can’t really see the audience, which made it a little better. I had a lot of fun. I want to do it again.”

Being in the spotlight also opens you up to criticism — but Kendall doesn’t let negative comments get her down. Instead, she turns to her sisters for advice. “[They tell me] not to listen to what other people say because people are mean,” she says. “I just don’t look at the Internet and what people say because it can bring you down.”
