The model opens up about her 'amazing' Fashion Week experience

Kendall Jenner has had a pretty major month. From walking in the Marc Jacobs show to sitting next to Anna Wintour during London Fashion Week to landing the cover of Marie Claire Mexico, the past few weeks have been filled with high-fashion milestones for the 18-year-old star.

So how's she feeling about it all?

'I think that it was all incredible. I'm literally living my dream right now, so I think that it was all a dream come true and it was amazing,' she told People magazine. 'It still really doesn't feel real, but it's all amazing.'

Considering Marc Jacobs was her first major runway show, we would have expected the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star to be a little freaked out. But she says her nerves weren't as bad as she expected.

'I thought I was going to be very, very, very nervous to the point where I felt like I was going to throw up, but I wasn't,' she said. 'I was really comfortable.'

Kendall also explained what was going through her head when she snagged the prime seat next to the uber-intimidating Vogue editor at the Topshop show in London: 'It was incredible,' she said. 'I am a very huge fan of hers so it was also a dream come true.'

The model (who also walked in the Giles Deacon show during LFW) seems to be at a turning point in her career, as fashion's most tightly locked doors are swinging open. But she's not quite ready to leave her little sister Kylie in the dust.

The two share the cover on the March issue of Marie Claire Mexico. They're also introducing a shoe collection together for Steve Madden and putting the finishing touches on their young adult novel, Rebels: City of Indra, to be released in June.
