Although Kylie Jenner confessed she was a bit nervous last night before her big Fashion Week debut, she looked like a total pro as she walked the runway at Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn fashion show for Style360.

The youngest member of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan says she has her older sisters to thank for showing her the ropes and providing lots of support.

"I was a little nervous," she admitted to me after the show, where Kim, Kourtney and Kendall all cheered her on from the front row, along with Brody Jenner and Kris Humphries. "I'd never done anything like this before. It really took me out of my comfort zone in a good way."

So what advice did her sisters share?

"They all showed me and were kind of like 'This is how I would do it'," the 14-year-old told me. "They all said this is supposed to be fun and just get out there. They were all screaming [for me] and it was really fun."

Indeed! Kylie modeled multiple looks and was the final model to walk, closing the show in a fancy black tulle dress. Kendall handed her a bouquet of flowers as the models did their final walk and Kim was the first person on her feet to give Avril and her show a standing ovation.

Kylie, who's also a full-time high-school student and varsity cheerleader in addition to a model, says she's used to juggling a busy schedule.

"I always have to catch up," she admitted. "But my teachers understand and they send me work and email me. I get through it!"

And although her half-brother Brody dates Avril, Kylie said she was offered the modeling job through her manager.

"Honestly, my manager came to me and said 'Avril wants you to be in the show' and I said absoutely. I wanted to do it so bad and I'm so glad I did it."

Well done!
