Kendall Jenner has vowed to continue educating herself on how to become a better ally for black people.

Black Lives Matter protests have been taking place across the U.S., the U.K. and Europe in response to the death of unarmed African-American George Floyd, who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck on 25 May.

Many celebrities have subsequently spoken out about racial injustice on social media, and the model faced criticism for failing to show her support for the protesters or address Floyd’s death, with detractors even referencing her controversial 2017 Pepsi advert, in which she was seen calming down a protest by handing a police officer a Pepsi can.

On Monday, Kendall finally took to Instagram to speak out and urge users to follow her example and educate themselves more about the Black Lives Matter movement.

“To everyone reading this and to myself: keep researching, reading, and educating yourself on how we can become better allies. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking these past few days and my heart has been so heavy. I’m angry and hurt just like so many,” she began. “I will never personally understand the fear and pain that the black community go through on a daily basis, but i know that nobody should have to live in constant fear.”

“I acknowledge my white privilege and promise I will continue to educate myself on how I can help,” the 24-year-old continued. “This is a time to have those uncomfortable conversations with people and mainly with ourselves. we must also make sure we are ready to vote when the time comes to elect the right people into office.

“The one truth that will always ring loudest is that BLACK LIVES MATTER.. Rest peacefully George Floyd and all victims of this horrible injustice.”

Following backlash over the ad, Pepsi pulled it the following day and issued an apology. The model finally addressed the controversy on Keeping Up with the Kardashians six months later, with her tearfully telling viewers: “I would never purposely hurt someone, ever, and if I knew this would’ve been the outcome I never would’ve done something like this.”

Kendall Jenner has teamed up with designer Kenneth Cole to help launch The Mental Health Coalition initiative.

To coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the designer and social activist has unveiled The Mental Health Coalition, the first collaborative effort of this scale which will unite members of leading U.S. mental health organisations, creative and media platforms, passionate advocates, as well as celebrities, with the aim of working together to destigmatise mental health conditions.

To help promote the drive, Kendall, who has been open about her battle with anxiety, made a video call appearance on Good Morning America.

“When he came to me (with the idea), it was so perfect… You know, I struggle with my own mental health issues sometimes myself so I was very excited, I was so ready to get involved,” she explained. “What I hope to accomplish is for people not to feel as alone.

“I was really, really young and feeling like I couldn’t breathe and running to my mom… She, of course, took me to a bunch of doctors, just to make sure I was all OK physically… No one ever told me I had anxiety,” the model confessed. “Maybe three, four years ago it came back completely full-on and I would have crazy panic attacks, (and I) finally kind of got the information I needed about it.”

The initiative brings together mental health resources and service providers in one place – an online platform and digital hub where people can seek help or guidance and open up about their problems.

Cole, founder and chairman of the initiative, added in a statement that the coronavirus crisis has created an “unprecedented urgency to address” mental health.

“We are aligned with the goal of ending the related devastating stigma. I believe that together we can end the stigma, but only together,” he said.

In addition to Kendall, other stars joining the initiative include Stanley Tucci, Whoopi Goldberg, Kesha, among others, who will post confessional videos on social media in which they answer the question: “How are you, really?”

Kylie Jenner suffered last-minute wardrobe malfunction before 2018 Met Gala

Kylie Jenner suffered a last-minute wardrobe malfunction just before the Met Gala back in 2018.

The reality star took to her Instagram Stories on Monday to share her favourite memories of the prestigious fashion bash, and told her 178 million followers that she managed to rip her black Alexander Wang gown dress while “squeezing” herself into it.

Kylie arrived at the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination-themed event with boyfriend Travis Scott, just three months after giving birth to her first child, daughter Stormi Webster.

And she revealed that getting ready for the Met Gala didn’t go quite to plan.

“Three months after I gave birth in 2018,” Kylie wrote alongside a snap from her on the red carpet. “Fun fact: this dress wasn’t supposed to have a zipper but it ripped as I was squeezing into it so we added it on the way out the door. But it worked out, I love it.”

Last year, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wore a custom-made lavender Versace gown, which featured crystal mesh, Swarovski crystals, ostrich feathers, and large feathered sleeves.

And she told her fans that sister Kendall Jenner was originally supposed to wear a green or pink coloured Versace dress for the Notes on Camp-themed event, so they could’ve co-ordinated on the red carpet.

“I realllyy (sic) wanted her outfit to be pink but she wanted green or orange. The orange looked fire in the end,” Kylie shared.

The 2020 Met Gala, which was due to be held on 4 May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, has been postponed indefinitely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kendall Jenner has launched new merchandise to help raise funds for coronavirus relief efforts.

The 24-year-old model runs the Zaza World creative collective with friend DJ Daniel Chetrit and together they have created the “STATE OF EMERGENCY” capsule collection, which features colourful T-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags illustrated by Chetrit.

She announced the collection on her Instagram Stories, telling her 128 million followers that 100 per cent of the net profits will go to Feeding America, which is a national network of food banks across the U.S. which supports shelters and soup kitchens in deprived communities.

The organisation has been instrumental in providing essential free food to those in need as the coronavirus pandemic has led to more than 30 million people becoming unemployed in the U.S. since the outbreak hit the country in March.

The pieces in Kendall’s debut collection through Zaza World feature slogans like “stay home” and “this shirt feeds people” emblazoned with Daniel’s designs and the brand’s logo.

T-shirts are available in sizes S to 2XL, and priced at $35 (£44), while the hoodie is $70 (£87), the baseball cap is $35 (£44), and a five-inch sticker is $5 (£6), and available from the Zaza World website now.

“Don’t Forget To Hit Shop.ZaZaWorld.Com… We’re Donating 100% Of Our Net Proceeds To @feedingamerica In An Effort To Help Those Affected By Covid-19,” Kendall wrote on Instagram, alongside a screenshot from the latest virtual episode of the Zaza World Radio Show on Apple Music, which was broadcast on Friday to coincide with the launch of the collection.

Adut Akech is happy to be stranded in Australia with her family during the coronavirus pandemic.

The South Sudanese-Australian model revealed she was visiting family in Adelaide when the worldwide lockdown hit, with countries closing their borders and grounding flights in an effort to stop the spread of the deadly virus, so she was forced to stay much longer.

“I was supposed to come see my family in Adelaide for a week, and now I’ve been home for a month – but I’m grateful to be stuck here,” Akech told Vogue for the fashion bible’s Postcards From Home series.

“I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else,” she said of being home with her mother and five siblings. “I’ve been staying positive by exercising and meditating as much as possible, and I’ve been making my siblings join me, just to make sure their immunities are strong and healthy.”

The 20-year-old added: “I’ve also done a lot of reading, which has been good for my mental health.”

And she’s not the only model who’s been turning to books to try and keep sane while in self-isolation during the lockdown.

Kendall Jenner, who is holed up at her Hollywood Hills mansion in Los Angeles, credited finding the positives in the little things while she’s apart from the rest of her famous family.

“This is my happy place, reading in my home,” Jenner told Vogue. “I believe, especially in the current climate, that keeping a good mental state is important. Identify all the little things that mean the most to you, and embrace them.”

Kylie Jenner is “going on a health journey” while in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 22-year-old opened up about her beauty regime during a recent Instagram Live Q&A with her friend Stassie Karanikolaou and noted that she has been embracing her natural look while practicing social distancing and staying inside to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

“This is the first time I’ve worn my natural hair,” Kylie said while running her hands through her bob-length locks, which she had coloured a dark blonde. “I’m going on a hair health journey during quarantine.”

Kylie went on to share her haircare essentials and explained that she has become a big fan of using hair masks to repair her strands, and argan oil, which helps to hydrate and soften hair thanks to its high content of antioxidants and vitamin E.

The mother-of-one hasn’t been wearing her usual acrylic nails either.

“I feel so uncomfortable (about my natural nails) I don’t know how to type on my phone anymore because I usually type with the flats. My nails didn’t even need to be taken off, this is just such a good time to take your hair out, nails out, go no lashes, we’re so natural Stass,” the reality TV star laughed.

During the quarantine period, the billionaire businesswoman is also working hard on her Kylie Cosmetics line.

She told her fans and followers on Friday that she’d been focusing on her beauty brand and teased upcoming collaborations with her older sister Kendall Jenner and pal Stassie.

“I have something really special coming up with Kendall,” she shared. “Stass and I may or may not be working on something special together.”

Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber forced him to shave off his controversial moustache.

The popstar dabbled with a little facial hair at the beginning of 2020, but in February, agreed to get rid of the look, which he had dubbed “mustashio”.

But during an Instagram Live chat with pals Kendall Jenner and Kehlani on Sunday, Justin revealed he would still have the moustache if it was up to him.

“Hailey was gonna freaking kill me,” he said. “I wasn’t gonna be able to sleep in the bed. So, I had to shave it.”

Justin then asked his wife what she liked most about her husband, prompting the model to chime back, “My favourite thing about being married to you is that you are very considerate of people. You make sure to put other people first. You’re a very good listener. And you really encourage me to do what I’m good at and what I love.”

Elsewhere, Hailey revealed that she is enjoying self-isolation with the Yummy star after initially fearing the lockdown would lead to anxiety issues.

“It’s really shown me that the simplicity in life and kind of dialling everything back has made me so happy,” the 23-year-old shared. “I’ve been happier than I felt in months, just from being able to be low-key and just hang – and not have things on a schedule. I feel really reconnected with myself and that’s unexpectedly made me really happy…

“I swear I feel like I’ve gotten so much more done in this quarantine than I have in, like, a year.”

Claudia Schiffer once hired security guards to stop underwear thieves

Claudia Schiffer has recalled how she once had to hire security guards to stop people from stealing her underwear.

The German beauty shot to fame in the early 1990s as one of the “big six” supermodels alongside Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Kate Moss.

However, in a new cover interview for the May 2020 issue of Elle U.K., Claudia reflected on some of the drawbacks of celebrity, including how she had to employ security staff in order to ward off peeping Toms and stop fans from taking her bras and underwear.

“People would cut holes in the fashion tents and try to take pictures of us,” she remembered. “We had security at every fashion show. When I was out on the runway I’d come back and constantly my underwear would be gone – my bra, my knickers … gone!”

And while Claudia has no regrets about her fashion career, she is pleased she no longer has to deal with the frenzied attention – and is happy to pass on her mantle to younger models like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

“You don’t have to be called (beautiful) your entire life,” the 49-year-old explained. “It’s a nice memory, but then the next generation starts and you hand over. For me, it’s a natural thing to do… to hand over, to not be envious or jealous.

“As a matter of fact, I can’t think of anything worse right now than if you said, ‘There’s a magic pill and it’s going to make you look 20 again.'”

Kendall Jenner has hit back at claims speculating she’s not taking orders to self-isolate seriously.

The model sparked concern on Tuesday after she posted a snap of her classic 1965 red Ford Mustang on social media, with one fan commenting: “UHMMM NO, Stay Home.”

In response, Kendall reassured her 125 million Instagram followers that she was only “starting up” the vehicle from her home and was abiding by the advice of California Governor, Gavin Newsom, to practice social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Of course I’m staying home!!” the 24-year-old responded. “Taking this quarantine v seriously… but also not a bad idea to get some fresh air as long as you keep a safe distance from others and follow all guidelines 🙂 everyone stay healthy.”

Earlier in the week, Kendall admitted she “misses” her pals amid the lockdown, but also reflected: “The sooner we quarantine, the sooner we can get back to our peoples again (sic).”

Officials from the World Health Organization (WHO) have urged people to stay home and practice social distancing amid the global health crisis, which has seen more than 452,000 cases of Covid-19 confirmed, with over 21,300 deaths registered, since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China last December.

Kendall Jenner has credited her mother Kris Jenner for moulding her into such a savvy businesswoman.

The 24-year-old has gone from a young reality star on Keeping Up with the Kardashians to one of the world’s most famous models, and has starred in campaigns for brands including Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, and Chanel.

In a new Q&A session on YouTube, Kendall opened up about the biggest inspirations in her life – with the 64-year-old family matriarch coming out on top of her list.

“I have learned so much from my mom, consciously and subconsciously,” she said. “I was very lucky to have a businesswoman (Kris) helping me become a businesswoman… and older sisters who became businesswomen.”

Another trait Kris instilled in her children is the way they “open their doors” to others.

As for other major influences in her life, Kendall admitted her older sisters – Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian – as well as her younger sister Kylie Jenner, have all helped her in more ways than one.

“The best thing about having so many sisters is (that) you always have a friend. And, also, if you ever need advice, there are tonnes of people to call… even if one of them doesn’t answer,” the brunette beauty smiled. “I think I am, specifically, very lucky because not only do I have sisters and a big family, but they all live in this world with me, so they understand the things that I go through and I understand the things they go through.”
