“I’ve learned a lot since then.”
Jenner said she feels comforted because her heels aren’t too high and that she also practices at her company before the show. “I’m pretty cold, even though my boobies are out,” she said. “I remember going into my office and taking a walking lesson because I didn’t necessarily know what I was doing. I think I took the advice too seriously and ended up getting really rigid when it came to walking. up the runway. I’ve learned one since. She’s just a little girl here. I love seeing it.”

I remember getting a call from my agent saying Marc and Katie [Grand] wanted to put me in this absolute top spot, and I said, ‘I’m the game. I don’t mind. I’m fine with nipples,” she said. It doesn’t worry me anymore. I was really like, ‘Dope. Whatever they want. It’s their vision, so do it. ‘ I was completely at ease. ”
