Why hasn’t Kendall Jenner walked in any fashion shows this season?
Fashion month is in full flight; we've had an Australian invasion, a rainbow call for equality and the (somewhat questionable) return of your mum's favourite '90s hair accessories. But one model has been noticeably absent from the grandeur of Fashion Week season, and unlike her sisters, her hiding has nothing to do with babies or pregnancy. On last night's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kendall Jenner (AKA the highest paid model in the world) revealed how her struggle with anxiety and panic attacks increased with the pressures that come with her career as a model.
"Kendall struggles from anxiety, and I think she has so much going on that she gets herself really worked up," Kendall's mum, Kris Jenner told cameras. "Kendall gets the most anxious during fashion week so when she's travelling a lot. Trying to juggle it all is overwhelming."
Kendall explained the reasons behind her anxiety range from life events to social media. "There's a lot that happened this past year, starting with like, Kim's robbery," she said. "Then I got robbed, and I had my stalkers. That's why I don't really like going out anymore. That's why I don't tweet, that's why I don't Instagram. That gives me anxiety, too. I swear - it's the craziest thing."
This is not the first time the 22 year-old has addressed her struggle with anxiety. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar she explained: "I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks."
In last night's episode, Kendall explored different coping mechanisms such as meditation and sound therapy. "Anxiety is all mental, so you have to try and find your ways around it," said Kendall. "I try and maintain it, but sometimes it's out of your control. But I think I'm very blessed to be in the situation I'm in, and every year that I do fashion months it gets a little bit easier. It's really exciting. I still look forward to it every year."
The episode was filmed in September 2017 prior to Kendall's appearance at Milan Fashion Week (how can you forget that Versace show!), however this fashion week season model has traded in her stilettos for skis, posting a video of herself snowboarding with the caption "Time off." Our guess is that it was much needed.
