Gisele Bündchen Opens Up About Suicidal Thoughts in New Book (People)
In her new memoir Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, supermodel Gisele Bündchen reveals that she has struggled with anxiety and even suicidal thoughts in the past. Bündchen suffered her first panic attack in 2003, and her anxiety increased from there. “I felt powerless,” she explains. “Your world becomes smaller and smaller, and you can’t breathe, which is the worst feeling I’ve ever had.” She admitted to considering jumping off a balcony just to end the suffering.

Size diversity and LGBTQIA representation was up as well, increasing to 2.2% and 2.41% respectively. The Fashion Spot has yet to reveal its findings for London or Milan, but it will certainly be interesting to see if the momentum continues internationally.
