Why Kendall Jenner’s Victoria’s Secret Debut Proved She's A Total Badass

Kendall Jenner has talked about her 'dream' job of walking for Victoria's Secret, but her pre-show chat wasn't quite what we expected

We can’t really think of anything worse – walking down a runway wearing only the teeniest and glitziest of lingerie, alongside some of the leggiest models in the business. It’s an actual recurring nightmare, for everyone apart from the Victoria’s Secret models (you'd hope).

2015 was Kendall Jenner’s debut show for the underwear brand and, understandably, the 20-year-old expressed a little pre-show nerves. For a celeb whose life can sometimes seem almost tiresomely perfect, it was kind of endearing.

Even after uncountable fashion week shows, photo shoots, being filmed pretty much constantly for KUWTK, dancing on the subway for Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain x H&M collection, she felt the pressure! NEWSFLASH – Kendall Jenner is only human.

It was both Kendall and Gigi’s first Victoria’s Secret show - which they both said was a ‘dream’ - but while Gigi strutted her sturf, Kendall looked visibly a little uncomfortable.

With Kris and Caitlyn in the audience, we don’t blame her! It was reported that the reason the whole Kardashian bunch weren’t there was because Kendall asked her sisters to give it a miss.

"I told them all to stay away,"​ Kendall told the New York Daily News, backstage at the show. 'It was too much pressure and I was like, 'Mom and Dad are good enough.' I just need the pressure off. There's enough pressure as it is.'

It wasn’t just the outfits that were on Kendall’s mind pre-show: ‘It’s kind of strange to say it, but I’m more nervous about tripping or slipping than I am to be wearing lingerie, but it’ll all be good [...] It’ll all be good, ‘ she said to E! News.

‘Everyone kept asking and I was like, you know what, maybe there’ll be a next time. Maybe then. Because right now I’m really nervous; I’m peeing myself!’

We all know how crippling nerves can be so KUDOS to Kendall for doing it anyway. And we think she nailed it.
