How Karlie Kloss and Naomi Campbell Helped Brandon Maxwell Deal with Coronavirus Anxiety

The Project Runway judge was so, so grateful.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected all of our lives in different ways. Brandon Maxwell had a particularly hard time coping recently until he stumbled upon two familiar faces and a video that changed his entire perspective. The Bravo's Project Runway judge was so moved, he just had to share his experience on Instagram.

So, who was featured in this important clip? Fellow Project Runway judge/host Karlie Kloss and supermodel (and recurring Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen guest) Naomi Campbell, of course! The fashion icons chatted on Naomi's YouTube talk show, discussing Brandon's use of creativity and generosity, how he helped them both back in the day, and their general thoughts on him as a person.

Brandon posted the video of Karlie and Naomi with the caption, "OK not going to sugar coat it. I always try to be as positive as possible on here, & I make my best effort to do so in my daily life as well. But today I felt so mentally broken. I must have seemed that way too because so many people on my video calls texted me after to check in if I was ok (Thank you). I think I've been in fight or flight mode for the past 6 weeks & I just woke up today feeling stuck and panicked."

He added, "Today I decided to skip two meetings & take time for myself in bed. I opened my computer & clicked on to watch @naomi YouTube talk show with @karliekloss, & as soon as I joined I happened upon a conversation they were having about me. I'm someone that believes in signs and & I'm so thankful to these incredible women & the universe for sending me this moment today."

Ok not going to sugar coat it. I always try to be as positive as possible on here, & I make my best effort to do so in my daily life as well. But today I just felt so mentally broken. I must have seemed that way too because so many people on my video calls texted me after to check in if I was ok (thank you 😘) I think I’ve been in fight or flight mode for the past 6 weeks & I just woke up today feeling stuck & panicked. So much of my life has revolved around close personal relationships, creating things for & with people I love, & the joy that I feel in those interactions. It’s hard not to have those things right now when so much is going on. I’ve been talking a lot about mental health on my nightly live sessions because what we’re going through IS so hard on all of us for so many reasons. I’ve been inside my apartment in NYC for almost 8 weeks & only gone outside once. The fear & anxiety has been hard to deal with, & the sadness I feel for what those in my city are going through sometimes overwhelms me. I’m sure like everyone else, I spend a good amount of time throughout the day asking myself what this all means, what’s to learn from it, & what my greater purpose is & should be in our new reality. Fashion seems so frivolous sometimes, but for me it’s always been something deeper than just clothes. Clothes are just the vessels that carry the love exchanged. Today I decided to skip two meetings & take time for myself in bed. I opened my computer & clicked on to watch @naomi YouTube talk show with @karliekloss, & as soon as I joined I happened upon a conversation they were having about me. I’m someone that believes in signs, & I’m so thankful to these incredible women & the universe for sending me this moment today. It’s been so long now since I’ve been able to create with people I love, & I needed this today of all days to remind me of those special times, of the memories, of the purpose. It’s easy during these times to get lost & to question where we’re going; if the path we’re on will matter when this is all over. I think anything done with love always will, & I’m so grateful for this moment today that reminded me of the love that was & will continue to be. ❤️
