Being a professional supermodel comes with its own particular set of job requirements. Not only are you expected to show up everywhere you go looking totally flawless, with style and charisma to spare, but you also have to have a killer runway walk, an effortless smize, and any hangups you have about your body (especially in regards to showing it off naked) are going to have to go out the window real fast. Thankfully for Kendall Jenner, the latter has never been a problem as she admitted to W magazine in their latest installment of “Screen Test” she’s always secretly loved putting her assets on display.

She’s walked every runway you can imagine, but her modeling career started off slow: When she first moved to New York she spent her time, “run[ning] to a million test shoots in the middle of nowhere … at s—-y apartments.” To be fair, after growing up in Calabasas, we’re sure that 95 percent of New York’s real estate offerings could never live up to the reality star’s standards.

But then Kendall got her first big break, meeting with Marc Jacobs and Katie Grand to be considered for his runway show in 2014. She says, “I was so nervous. I didn’t think anyone would like me. It’s so nerve-wracking in front of all those cool people and you go back a couple times and they need to see if they really like you.” After she landed the gig, however, all of her fears immediately disappeared. The night before, she says, “I actually surprisingly was not nervous, not extremely nervous. I was more excited. I think I wasn’t nervous because I was wearing flats. Like, I got to wear, like, flat shoes so it wasn’t as nerve-wracking. I was, like, I can’t fall. There’s no way I can fall.”Watch this video on The Scene.

And while she worried about tripping, she had no such qualms about making her fashion week debut totally topless. “I don’t know why I wasn’t nervous about that,” she says, “I was really excited about my t-ts being out, actually.” When asked to elaborate, she continued, “I don’t know. I’m weird. I love my t-ts being out. It’s like one of my things, I guess.” (It’s a point she’s made before and will probably make until the day they meet her knees.)

That fact certainly makes her nude photo shoots go much more smoothly, though she adds, “there’s a line. There’s a definite line. But I’m young. When I’m older, I want to be able to look at it and be, like, I looked good.” May we all be so lucky as to be able to look back at our youthful, nude supermodel selves with joy.
