She's a leader in this generation's supermodel squad but Kendall Jenner has been notably absent from any runway shows during Fashion Month.

At 22, she's one of the most recognisable names in modern fashion and with that influence comes the option of being selective when it comes to your work.

 Stella Maxwell, Joan Smalls Gigi and Bella Hadid and co have been travelling across the US and Europe to New York, London, Milan and now Paris, but Kendall has opted out this season - after significantly reducing the number of shows she walked last season.

"She had other working commitments this year," a source told People.

"Kendall always decides last minute what she is walking in. It depends on the money and how she is feeling."

Jenner is reportedly enjoying a "little bit of a break" after an intense 2017 and taking her foot off the gas to focus on getting some downtime where possible.

It's reported her six month romance with NBA player Blake Griffin is also coming to an end and the reality tv star due to the distance between them - she is based in Los Angeles and he in Detroit.

"He will be back in L.A. for the summer, and it's possible they could heat up again. For now, they are still in contact and not ruling anything out," an insider told E! News.

"Right now, it's on and off and they still talk and see each other when their schedules allow it."
