When the pressure of her whirlwind success does get too much, Cara revealed she has turned to people in the industry for advice.
She revealed that she had called Rihanna when she was unable to switch off during a break to Greece with her sister. "She said 'It's easy to drown yourself in work. That's a form of escapism. So, if you're alone and you want to cry, cry'.
"And I did. But by then, it was time to leave and get back to my life."
Her hectic schedule – which saw Cara walk in more than 40 shows in the last fashion week season – has also taken its toll on the star physically, as she suffers from a type of psoriasis that flares up during times of stress.
"Kate Moss saw me before the Louis Vuitton show at 3 am, when I was being painted by people to cover the scabs," she said.
"She said, 'This is horrible! Why is this happening? I need to help you.' She got me a doctor that afternoon. Kate gives really good advice."
