Model Kendall Jenner's absence from the fashion month runways raises doubts about her work
Kendall Jenner is reportedly the highest earning model in the industry right now.
Fashion month, which starts in New York and ends in Paris through London and Milan, is on its last stretch in France, and top model Kendall Jenner has not walked a single show yet. The reason: she has a lot going on in her life right now.
People reports via multiple sources that“there’s no real reason” for Jenner's absence. The sources diverged from there on why exactly Jenner is skipping. “She had other working commitments this year,” one said.
While the model has been a regular at shows like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang and Versace in recent years, she's been absent at each this season, keeping a surprisingly low profile season for the woman who was just named the highest paid model in the world.
“Kendall always decides last minute what she is walking in. It depends on the money and how she is feeling,” a second source added.
And Jenner has been stressed, a third source said, telling People that Jenner needed “a little bit of a break” after her nonstop 2017. “It’s nothing severe or serious.”
The break does, however, come after a 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' storyline that addressed the model's anxiety issues that ended with her looking to find ways to handle it better. Just last week, she posted a video of herself skiing down a mountain on a snowboard with the caption "time off."
Kris Jenner explained during a camera interview that "Kendall struggles from anxiety, and I think she has so much going on that she gets herself really worked up. Kendall gets the most anxious during fashion week so when she’s traveling a lot. And Milan’s coming up and trying to juggle it all is overwhelming."
However, it's still possible Jenner could jet off to Paris to walk shows during the rest of Paris fashion week, which runs through March 6th. This speculation comes in light of the fact that she has historically been a regular at Chanel, Balmain, and Miu Miu, and those shows aren't until later in the week.
