I suffered from depression while modelling, reveals Cara Delevingne

After some time off, the 23-year-old is now back in front of the camera, as the face of the new Saint Laurent

Los Angeles Supermodel Cara Delevingne has opened up about her battle with depression, saying she never really quit modelling, instead she just took a break.

After some time off, the 23-year-old is now back in front of the camera, as the face of the new Saint Laurent, campaigning a stunning series of black and white shots by designer Hedi Slimane.

"Can we just set the record straight. I never said I was quitting modelling. I do not blame the fashion industry for anything. I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred," she said.

"I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself. I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw. I am really good at that. Okay.. Rant over. Just wanted to clarify and word vomit a little."

Delevingne then posted an inspirational quote which read, "My brother told me a joke, I laughed to tears. He told me the same joke again and I laughed but not as hard. He kept repeating the joke and I stopped laughing."
