We would do the same

Walking the runway at New York Fashion Week in front of your whole family would be daunting enough, but it's got to be even harder when they're as high profile as the Kardashian-Jenner clan. So how exactly does Kendall Jenner handle it?

Apparently, she just completely blocks them out. During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Kendall revealed that she refuses to look at her family while walking a show (totally understandable).

'I've told myself since my first show, like I never look at the audience ever, no, no one. If I do it'll like mess me up.

'Kylie, sometimes, if she's at a show, her and my mum, usually they like, I can hear them screaming' she said – which as you can hear from the below Snapchat, they do do.

'Sometimes I'll smirk a little bit because I can't like hold it in, but I never look. I like, could never look at them.'

We're not sure we'd be able to look either, to be honest.

Regardless of her family's presence, Kendall is clearly very comfortable on the runway, also saying that she doesn't get that nervous any more.

'It actually depends on the situation, like if I'm wearing a really long dress with really crazy heels then obviously I think the nerves set in' she said.

'You're like, "Oh my god I'm going to fall"... But I've actually become really, really comfortable.'
