Sitting backstage holding up to complete her hair and makeup before she takes the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris, Kendall Jenner is pretty zen. “I’m good—I’m actually pretty calm, surprisingly,” the models says of how she’s feeling pre-show. “I don’t know if it’s because it’s my second time? I think the nerves will hit me in a little bit.”

Furthermore, though it’s most likely supportive to have companions like Gigi and Bella Hadid there―”It’s awesome I think it makes the experience so much better—they’re genuinely my friends so it’s really cool. I feel like I’m on a big school field trip.”―she still gives herself a pre-demonstrate energy discuss sorts.

“Literally, and I know this may sound weird, but I think it’s one of the shows where you can really be selfish and like really just like think about yourself and take a moment for yourself and kind of tell yourself that you’re beautiful, that you’re hot and to kill it –in your head, not sitting in front of the mirror, saying I’m so hot,” she says, chuckling. “It’s one of those shows where you have to do that to hype yourself up.”

Since it’s not regular you wear clothing on the runway. “You kind of have to be a little confident to do that.”
