Cara Delevingne – who’s that girl?

Cara Delevingne is the British model that everyone is talking about right now. In recent months I have heard and seen more and more of her as she is making her way to the top of the fashion world. Besides at least 50% of all Tumblr photos are photos of her.:)))

I remembered Cara from her days as an Asos model - even then she caught my eye. She has one of those unforgettable faces – a natural blonde with incredible, light green eyes and dark caterpillar eyebrows, the perfect contrasts – a strange, almost hypnotizing beauty. And, as it turns out, important designers agree as she is now strutting her stuff on every big runway out there. 

She began her modeling career when she was 17 and she’s now 20 years old. Her debut runway show was for Clements Ribeiro during spring 2012 at London Fashion Week. After that it was the Burberry show in New York and they liked her so much that she ended up as the new face of the fashion house.

That's why Cara Delevingne walked almost exclusively for Burberry and Burberry Prorsum for spring summer 2012 but the next season she was everywhere from Chanel, Stella McCartney, Cacharel to Sonia Rykiel, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana and more.

You may also remember Cara being part of Victoria's Secret fashion show in 2012. And all of this work didn’t go unnoticed as British Vogue described her as the "star face" of the autumn/winter 2012-2013 show season. She was also ranked #25 on's 50 Top Models and won Model Of The Year 2012 at the British Fashion Awards. 

And let’s not forget about the small part she played in Anna Karenina, as Princess Sorokina, the marriage interest of Count Vronsky who was played by the amazing Aaron Taylor-Johnson whom I love.
It’s also rumored she almost got the role of Éponine in Les Misérables but in the end Samantha Barks landed the part instead.

Right now Cara Delevingne is the face of Chanel's Resort 2013 campaign and is booked for every major show in the Fashion Week Circuit.

Besides modeling and acting Cara Delevingne is interested in music as well and it’s been said Simon Fueller (the "Pop Idol"/"American Idol" creator) it’s set on transforming her into a pop sensation.

This last year she also graced the cover of some of the most prestigious fashion magazines: Vogue, Love, British Vogue, Harper's Bazaar's, Numero.

She definitely was a busy bee and I’m sure that’s going to escalade, the fashion world always ends up going crazy for some girl and this is pretty much the case now.

It helps that she is a London socialite. Cara Delevingne is the youngest of three sisters (Cara  is 20, Poppy is 26 and Chloe is 28) and was born in rich British family.

Her sister Poppy Delevingne is also a famous British model and the duo is often seen on red carpets, at music festivals and fashion weeks and is frequently featured on the party pages of British Vogue and The Telegraph.

In fact the Delevingne sisters are rich, blue- blooded and can compete with the Middleton sisters as far as the media coverage goes – the gossip columnists live to write about them.

Cara is the granddaughters of former English Heritage boss, Sir Jocelyn Stevens, who also founded the Caroline radio station, was the director of the London Evening Standard and later the Daily Express and the proprietor-editor of The Queen magazine. His first wife Janie Sheffield was lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret.

Cara Delevingne and her sisters had a privileged life from birth living in London's Mayfair and are friends with the Jaggers and Lily Allen's family. Cara’s godmother, Joan Collins, even come up with a clever nickname for this three: the ‘Dynasty Sisters’. Catchy, right?

Apparently they know everybody and their mother, from royalty to movie and music stars. Chloe has a degree in biomedical sciences, she is a nightclub entrepreneur and is almost always included in Britain's most powerful lists, Cara is friends with Princess Beatrice, Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Rihanna, Azealia Banks and Poppy used to live with Sienna Miller. 

Although they never officially confirmed (or denied) it Cara Delevingne and One Direction's Harry Styles were causally dating for a few months last year (they were photographed on a number of dates between July and September 2012). It’s rumored that she dumped him because her agency/management team considered this relationship made her an even bigger tabloid target and Styles was too “low rent” for Cara. I do agree she can do better than Harry Styles (who’s famously getting over anybody in 5 seconds and can always find a cougar to comfort him if needed).

I’m not trying to make her seem like an angel here as she has a reputation for being a party animal and has been see intoxicated in public before (just note she is of legal drinking age in Britain).

She also seem very funny and goofy!

There is no doubt that she has a great career in front of her, I’m sure her profile is going to rise even higher this year and her famous entourage is only going to help her get anything she wants.

Cara has her fair share of haters who think the only reason she made it as a model is her rich family who bought her way into fashion using either money or all the connections and friendships they have with famous people. Maybe she started like that (cause let’s be honest thinks do work that way many times) and got her foot in the door via her parents, but there’s no denying Cara Delevingne is extremely beautiful and has that special quality that makes a great model.

And let’s face it - right now Cara Delevingne has it all -  she is young, beautiful and rich. She’s the girl who’s life every teenager out there wants to live. She is the next big thing!

I'm actually a big fan of hers! :)) She also caught my eye when she was a model for asos and I think she's gonna have a great career in this industry.

The Hearabouts said...

She's a pretty amazing model and I actually like her eyebrows a lot ^_^.

But I think she exaggerates with the "funny faces" all seems a bit fake to me. Whenever i see a video of her she is acting goofy and it's becoming super annoying.

Alice in vintageland said...

Anaivilo - I guess it's a matter of taste - I actually love the caterpillar eyebrows, I love Lily Collins as well, I wish I had eyebrows like that!:)))))
The Hearabouts - Omg, you're totally right, I forgot to mention that in the article, but I feel the same, too much is too much, than again- she's 20 years old!:)

Yeah, i do believe she bought her way into the fashion world through her connections and money, it also helps she's got a lot of media attention, but if she's hard to work with, that'll get her nowhere. She's beautiful and she is working her ass of as a model. Good for her, that she's making a life of her own!
Loved this article!
