Cara Delevingne has opened up about the pressures of living in the spotlight and being a model. Speaking at the Women in the World event discussed how she has struggled growing up in the tough fashion industry.
Wearing a chic tailored suit and black strappy Louboutin heels Cara said: "I had no concept of saying no to anyone, ever."
"After a while I got sick and got a condition called psoriasis. I felt disconnected from myself, but my agency simply shoved me into a doctor’s surgery, where I got cortisone shots, but – in reality- I wanted someone to stop me, but nobody ever did."
In a chat with Rupert Everett, model Cara Delevingne was very open about her past struggles
In the extremely honest chat with Rupert Everett the Paper Towns actress revealed it was her mentor that helped her through this tough time.
"I never felt like I was good enough, that I deserved success. I felt like I was living somebody else’s dream. Kate Moss saved me – she stepped in and picked me up off the floor at a stressful time."
At the event held at Cadogan Hall, London, Cara was supported by fellow model and good friend Kendall Jenner. The model of the moment opted for a long bright blue top, black trousers and black open toe sling back shoes.
Cara acredited her mentor Kate Moss with "saving" her
Discussing ways to combat mental health problems Cara said that yoga really helped her, "I started writing and found yoga. At first I just did it superficially because I wanted to be flexible, but when I first started seeing my tutor I broke through something."
Cara’s honest revelations came just a day before World Mental Health Day which will see several events being held around the world on Saturday. Prince William and wife Kate will attend an event at Harrow School where they will meet young people who have battled their own mental health problems.
